Seriously though, congrats on the size 2s!


Hahaha!!! I will be whatever size I will be when I reach my goal. I do think that sizes are different than they were 20 years ago.

But seriously, the BMI chart still shows me in the "Overweight" category **sigh** and the 12 pounds is still hanging around the mid-section for the most part. Clothes hid it, but not a bikini! LOL!!!

I don't know what the size correlation is now, but 18 years ago a "0" was a 24 inch waist. That's what I wore my sophomore year of college.

Congrats on being so close to your goal!

^^ Child-bearing hips? laugh


Knowing what size my wife is, I cannot fathom her being a size 0, she's fragile enough as it is! I know people that wear such a size, but they're less people and more stick-figures. eek

Way to go PR!!! By any fitment standard you wish to apply, a size two be small! And forget the dumb BMI charts, they don't account for muscle or more generous pectoral deposits! wink

Great job lady! Keep it up!

"generous pectoral deposits" - I will have to remember that! LOL!!!

Right now, I have three goals:
1. Be able to do at least one pull-up. I have never been able to do a pull-up in my life.
2. Abs of steel
3. Completely toned upper arms

Considering my initial goal was to hopefully get down to a size 12 or 10, I guess I keep raising the bar!

If your gym has a "pull up machine", it is a great way to develope the strength needed. Heavy lat pulls will help. TRX or suspension training will help. Core exercises will help.
And as for toned upper arms, remember that 3/4's of your upper arm is triceps. People have a tendancy to focus on biceps for some reason. smile

Biceps are pretty, triceps are harder to showcase!

Nobody walks by you in the gym and stops to be like "Nice tri's bro!"

In my case, nobody stops to say anything, since nobody else is ever there...

I have abs of steel, they're just hiding under layers of...not steel wink

Unfortunately, the only way to show the "abs of steel" look is to reduce your overall bodyfat to around 10%.....

Why have a 6 pack when you can have a keg.

Food changes can take you a long way before you have to add in exercise to keep you progressing, the same works in reverse too.

Me, I'd rather exercise more and worry less about what I eat. Mostly because I'm going to eat it even if I know it's bad for me and I'll have to run X miles to make up for it. I'd rather run that not eat something tasty and unnecessary! laugh

And way to go! Keep up the good work, and stick with the stair-step goals so you know you're always progressing.

Oh I eat what I want. Mostly I've been adding more veggies and cutting portions. I find that things I used to be able to finish at restaurants, I can barely eat half of. Saves me some money, because now I can just split a plate with one of the kids. smile

That is great Dani!! And yes, almost all restaurants give you too much! Many base their entire marketing scheme around that very premise!
Keep hammering away at it Dani. Being consistant always wins the day. wink
