Hello double chinners!
I am bursting with excitement for joining along with my sister, Alyssa, on this blogging journey through weight loss! I have decided to challenge myself further by doing a “Hula Hoop 30-Day Challenge”. Back when I was losing my big chunk of weight I invested in my most precious exercise tool yet – The Acu Hoop! The Acu Hoop is a three to five pound hula hoop that advertises itself as an easy and fun way to lose inches off the waist with a mere ten minutes a day.
I discovered it while working at the gym and lost nine inches off my waist with the combination of healthy eating and exercise. I’ve continued to use the hula hoop from time to time when I need to lose an inch or two for an upcoming event and it still amazes me with results within a few weeks.
One thing I have yet to do since I lost that fifty pounds years ago was to see what kind of progress I could make if I was to be 100% dedicated to doing the Acu Hoop every day.
Since this blog makes me very accountable for my actions, I will turn that pressure into motivation to stick with this challenge.
So here I am on Day 1. I just finished my 10 minutes.
My waist is 45 inches.
My fat roll (that sweet spot below the belly button and above the ‘pubic mound’) is 48.5″
I think the smallest I got my waist down to was 35″ so that’s pretty depressing to realize I’ve gone up 10 inches. What’s crazy though is that my pant size hasn’t really changed!! How does that work!?
Anyway, I look forward to updating you all on my inch loss soon! I’ll do another measurement in two weeks from now to see how it’s going!
