BMI is also down to 25.24 & I have lost 5.4% of my weight so far

So that is my totals for the 12 weeks. Not great on the weight loss but 25cm in total loss I am happy with 5.4kg till my goal weight of 65kg! Then ill go from there.
So there you go! Thought I would add in my fitness test results as well!
1km time trial was 6 mins 44 now its 5 mins 40!
Pushups in 1 min was 12 Now its 25!

As for my goals for at the end of 3 months, lets have a look & see how it all went for me!

* I will last through a whole circuit class session without stopping - DONE
* I will be running at least 3km non stop - DONE
* I will be able to do 15 pushups - DONE
* I will be able to do 25 burpees in succession without stopping - DONE (although from about 15 they get
* I will be able to do 20 crunches properly - DONE
* I will be able to do 15 situps properly - DONE
* I will continue to keep with my healthy eating plan - DONE (but have slipped off wagon a couple of times!)
* I will continue to follow Michelles instruction - DONE (although I think I will get a boot in the backside when she sees me...haha)
* I will continue to attend circuit class 3 times a week - DONE (hoping that my PT gets replaced with someone just as amazing as he is. Cant beleive he is going overseas & staying there. He has helped me so much on this journey with getting fitter!)
* I will continue to do at least 20km on the cross trainer - DONE
* I will continue to drink 2 litres of water - DONE (I do slack off sometimes!)
* I will have lost at least 6kg and be weighing in at around 68kg! - FAILED!!! This is my failure of the round. I only weigh 70.4kg I need to kick my own ass for this!

So there it all is in black & white. Here is a quote from a post I put up on the forums this evening looking back at how far I have come now!

Last October I weighed in at 83kg. I was feeling fat, frumpy & nothing fit. I even was wearing a size 16! This was the biggest I had EVER been. Normally I am 60-65kg & in a size 10-12. I tried losing weigh myself & did manage to get down to 76kg but the weightloss stalled & thats when I discovered Mishs program! It was April this year & I decided first of all I had to stop smoking…...I did….cold turkey! I then impatiently checked my email everyday up until FINALLY we could sign up for round 2!

Now round 2 is over I can look back at what I have achieved instead of dwelling on what I havent or didnt. I had a few meltdowns & even had tears today. Tears are good though & I have learnt with every breakdown there is a breakthrough.

* I am now weighing 70.4kg
* I am still a non smoker & have no intention of taking up the habit again
* I can now run as well as run on the treadie at a speed of up to 12.4!!
* I am doing full 1hour classes instead of spending half of it on the sideline huffing & puffing
* I am making healthy choices with food & drink!
* I have gone from a size 16 to a size 12 so far!
* All in all I have become a better healthier person!

BEFORE SHOT (taken October Last year. Size 16!)

AFTER SHOT (taken last week. Size 12!)

Now to look forward to a great weekend in Sydney from Friday to Sunday! Cant wait to meet all the amazing 12WBT family who have also helped me on my journey. To Mish & Meels, you girls are amazing! Even over the internet your inspiration beams to all of us! Its those little tweets that keep us going & help achieve what I have. I may not have lost the most weight but I am proud of my achievements exercise wise! It is you ladies that helped push me to get to this stage & yes I might have done the work but it was easier knowing that you were both there as well as the 12WBT family. My family too has been wonderful. Eating all this weird & wonderful food just so that I wasnt doing this alone. Mwah to you all! xoxo

Here is to Round 3 & once again I will continue this blog on another chapter of getting to my goal weight! I hope to share with you all some pics after the weekend as I will be braving it & wearing a dress & heels!! Oh god who would have thought!

    I am starting from just over 80kgs, so in a similar position to you last october... hopefully my weight loss is as consistant as yours - I am sure with 12WBT & Mish helping it will be!
