Default First TT contest for me

I'm just starting the contest for the first time. I was training for a 5 k the last two months (running about 5 days a week, TT workouts 2-3 times a week, and occasional hikes) but then they postponed the 5k until February, which was good since I started getting shinsplints. Anyways, now I'm starting this contest because I want to finally get to my size of 3-4 years ago, so I need to lose 5 inches around my waist; approx. 20-30 lbs (I don't want to lose my muscle, so I don't really know what the weight will be). So I took pictures tonight, and tomorrow I will have access to a scale. I'm also taking measurements:

waist 33" (belly button)
hip 38.5"
thigh 22.5"
calf 13"
bicep (L) 11.5" R 11"
height 5' 4"
need to get weight tomorrow.

Starting with beginners' TT this week, maybe intermediate later; will see how this goes. Running on off days.
Eating plan: don't eat too much! I usually eat mainly lean meats, eggs, fish, fruits, veggies, but it's easy for me to overdo nuts or anything that I don't eat out of the usual and then it goes a little crazy. like last week of vacation. So back to unprocessed, no sugar, whole foods, and learning to handle "hunger" when it's not hunger for real.
Looking forward to: salsa dancing! shopping for new clothes in December! Seeing my family at Christmas in a healthy body! and doing this as a birthday present to myself also
ok that's it for me. Good luck to everyone!

Welcome to TC6!

I have trouble with "hunger" as well. Especially in the evening.

Salsa dancing sounds like fun! But between my husband and I, we have 4 left feet!
