Default Operation Belly Fat

I'm starting today.

weight-136(edited to say that because I waited a day to start, weight dropped to 135.4 teehee!)
shoulder-16.5"
chest-36"
waist-26.5"
ab. across bellybutton-32"
hips-36.5"
rt thigh-22.5"
lft thigh-22"

Goals-
-Fat loss primarily in the stomach and hips
-scale weight of 125
-increased flexibility and strength

Programs I'll be Using:
TT2K4
Thermo 30
??(figure this out when I get there)

Shaun Hadsall's 14 Day Fat Loss(I'll repeat this until I reach my goal weight)

Personal Non-Fitness Goals-
-I've had small children or have been homeschooling for 18 years. I "retired" form that this year. After a year-long break, I'm ready to move forward with whatever the second half of life will be. I'll be going through a "Creating a Life PLan" curriculum to assess my strengths and weaknesses. I sort of know what they are, but they are all kind of disjointed kind of like a junk drawer. I need help organizing them.

-Just for fun, I'm learning to play the Tin Whistle!

That's all! Have a great weekend everyone. Leslie

Hi Leslie,
I noticed for your measurements you took the circumference but not for your shoulders. I think to get a better perspective take it around your shoulders. For example, I measure about 10" inches different from shoulders, chest and waist. My shoulders measure 51", chest 41" and waist 31". It may be off a slight amount. The only one for me is my waist from day to day. Anyways, that way you can say how much you want to increase or decrease but keep the same numbers. I plan on increasing my shoulders by 2" which will possible increase the rest to keep a balance. I like your game plan. Keep attacking that body fat and your body will start looking good. I get compliments almost everyday from people so once you get going you will gain more confidence. I cook most of my food in coconut oil and consume EVCO on the side when going low carb.

Thanks for the tip on the shoulder measurement. I have pretty bony shoulders and don't really expect them to change much, but we'll see. My problem areas are the stomach,hiips, and to a lesser degree the thighs. Thanks also for the diet tips! I appreciate it. Leslie

Default Shoulder measurement

Craig's new contest rules show show measuring width of shoulders not circumference, but it sure won't hurt to measure both!!!

I think your trouble areas are quite common for most females except for a few. Most women tend to have thin shoulders and low muscle mass. You may want to add on some muscle mass in future after dieting down. You will look so much better. According to your measurements and your goals then yes you should strive for fat loss. Some exercises that you may want to look for involve static holds. These tend to burn a lot of calories. You might want to train your abs directly with a little more frequency but with not that many sets. The main thing is your diet. Try to eat less processed foods and drop your carbs when you can. I think you should do a carb reset which means dropping your carbs really low and use EVCO and oils. This will at first make you a little fat but once you start reintroducing carbs you will start to see better results. I did this when I was working with John Romaniello. You do not need to fast to do it but some people try to combine the two. The carb reset last about two weeks and then you start increasing carbs and reducing fat. Have you read "Engineering the Alpha"? It is geared towards men but may want to check it out if you have not. I did not do well on the 16/8 diet protocol since the meals were so big. I prefer smaller meals and spaced out throughout the day.

Smile Day 1

5/3/14

Pictures have been taken. I did yesterday's workout today.(I accidentally put my face in a puddle of someone else's sweat at the gym) Today is a carb up day. It's beautiful here in Texas, so I'll probably take a walk later and then relax some in my backyard. Hope everyone is having a good weekend. Leslie

CUH-RAP! I forgot the paper. I'll try again in a little bit! See! I need a TT trainer to move to Texas so I can hire you. I can't be trusted on my own! 8 )

Wow, thanks for all of the advice. I really appreciate it! I love talking nutrition. I'm using Shaun Hadsall's carb cycling/timing materials. I have not read that book. I have read a few things that John Romaniello has written online and facebook. He's obviously a very knowledgeable,buff and funny guy. I guess I just prefer Shaun and Craig's delivery style. I'm a recovering potty mouth and try to avoid that whenever possible. I also try to avoid folks that make porn jokes as human trafficking and at risk girls is an issue close to my heart.I may have caught him on a bad day! Sorry for the "more than you asked for" answer! I have lost 3 lbs on the scale since Monday using TT and Shaun's stuff! From a competitive standpoint, I should have waited until today to start, but I couldn't wait! Thanks again! Keep the tips coming. I need all the help I can get! Leslie
