Guess what! I didn’t die. Isn’t that amazing? I had 3 solid days lying horizontally this week and there was one point there where I thought, my god, this is it, isn’t it? I don’t want to go on like this! Okay, I’m being melodramatic but I REALLY don’t cope well with being sick. ;)

So, finally, here are my progress pics 9 weeks into Project Tighten Up.

At the beginning of this journey I thought that I would have an entirely different result to what I have achieved so far. I thought that I would probably have abs by now, a sleak, long set of toned pins and a derrier so perky you could bounce a quarter off it.

But realistically, that was never going to happen. My body likes to do things real slow. That doesn’t mean that changes don’t happen but I am never going to be one of those 12 week transformation success stories that you see on bodybuilding.com. I’ve come to terms with that. So, it might take me 22 weeks instead. ;)

I think I did make some sort of progress this month. I did actually lose 11cm off my body all over so that has to account for something, right? The bulk of it was off my hips, navel and waist. Also, some off my arms. I have to upload my new measurements graph. I’ll do that next week. Promise!

Also, one more thing and then I’ll post the pics, I bought a pair of size ten stretchy jeans from Lonsdale today. SIZE 10. Can you believe that shit?? Either Lonsdale make a generous size 10 or I’m getting closer to my goals than I’ve realised, I’m not sure, but either way, I am happy as a kid in a candy store. Or as happy as a dieter in an organic fruit and veg shop.
