32point5 One Year Later

The year is over in the 32point5 plan. To recap, I wanted to see what exactly it is that I do all my time with the intention of reaching a waist size of 32.5 inches.

I should have called it the 33point25 plan. Sadly I was off by 3/4 of an inch, however pretty good considering the starting number was 38. I know, disgusting!

Comparing the pictures above I have on the same shorts and belt. What you can't see is that I was actually holding it in in the first picture, the pants were unbuttoned and the belt was tight. I'm relaxed in the after picture, fully buttoned up and the belt on the last available spot.

These pictures don't really show much of a comparison other than I am a lot happier and physically fitter. Exercise has become a part of my daily routine, I now enjoy long walks, running on the treadmill and tennis. I've always thought that I eat well, however I still struggle with portion control.

I especially have to Thank my Big Man. He is constantly my biggest supporter. Some days were tough and he was always there to kick my ass and motivate me to keep going. He's my own personal "Tommy Europe", the white chocolate kind -- Smooches!!

Finally, what better way to celebrate the end of a great year....with home made Bumble-berry pie! Best part is half of it is still in the freezer....see portion control.

Thanks to everyone that took the time to read my blog. I will still be posting; it's been nice to realize that my life is not as boring and lame as I thought it was.
