Well, I rowed every day except Sunday, and I've got some results to show for it! I'm currently at 186.6, which is 2.4 pounds down from my starting weight last Friday. I've also lost one inch from my waist and one inch from my upper chest.
The upper chest (right below my arms) is really the important measurement because that's the place I need to lose two inches so that my wedding dress fits. Here's hoping that it needs to be taken in. That, I'll be willing to pay for!
I'm taking off this afternoon for a girls weekend for the first time ever, so I won't be able to use my rower, but we have some fun activities planned that I wouldn't ordinarily do. The ropes course, in particular, is exciting for me!
I've never, in all my (almost) 34 years, left town while in a relationship. I was married for ten years and I was always the one responsible for everything, and terrified of how he would behave if I left, so I never did.
My fiancée is a little sad, but excited for me. And I'm looking forward to the homecoming almost as much as the trip!
So.... Rowing works. So far. Pictures to come. Thanks for all the support, guys!
