Day 6 : Strength in Numbers June 20, 2013

I am not a numbers girl. However, they are a powerful tool for success. Today I challenge you to use them in two ways.

The first part of my challenge to you today is to find an accountability partner. Who do you know that will exercise, eat, and laugh with you? Someone who will accept you and challenge you all at once… If you don’t have someone like this in your life, stop reading my blog, pick up your phone and invite someone to go have coffee-invest in relationships. I have never seen success like I have this year, and I think that hinges on one factor: accountability.

The second part of my challenge for you today is to mark where you are today by numbers. Weigh. Measure for women: hips, waist & bust. Measure for men: neck, chest & waist. Write down your numbers. If you didn’t follow through on day one, do it now. Take a picture of yourself. You will find the strength and endurance to continue on your journey if you can look back at where you’ve been. History is a powerful motivator and teacher.

I’m going to pull the veil off and get honest with you. You’ve seen my day 1. Now I’ll show you my numbers:

These were on November 29, 2012 almost 5 months post-partum. It was the first time I measured after I began my journey in August 2012:

Weight 132 lbs
Chest 34 inches
Waist 32.5 inches
Hips 37 inches

Today:
Weight 117lbs
Chest 32 inches
Waist 27 inches
Hips 33 inches

15 pounds. 11.5 inches. Wow.

I never dreamed I’d get here. Accountability works. Try it.

    Zoe, Can I say I just love you. You have brought me knowledge, inspiration and encouragement at a time when I very much needed. You have changed my opinion about organic proteins and demystified the grocery shopping process. I appreciate the time you are taking to write this blog.
