Join me for the first Weigh
I’m nervous, anxious and a little bit terrified but I’m also highly optimistic.
I have previously mentioned that I will be taking full accountability for my weight management. I’m making a conscious effort to lose weight and become a fitter, healthier me in 2019.

Let’s get to it.
Left arm: 13 Inches
Right Arm: 13 Inches
Left Thigh: 22.5 Inches
Right Thigh: 23 Inchs
Chest: 42 Inches
Waist: 38 Inches
Hips: 46 Inches
Obviously, this figure is less than ideal, but it’s a starting point and everyone has to start somewhere!
In my mission to lose weight and become a fitter, healthier me I will be sharing the workouts I will doing each week in my new weekly series: Thursday Fit Club.
Join me on Thursday 10th January for the first Thursday Fit Club of 2019!
Why not join me on Facebook too? Let’s get a Weigh In Wednesday support group on the go!
Until next time…
