Five week ab challenge! Let's get shredded!
I kid myself about a lot of things, but ever having shredded abs isn't one of them :rolleyes:. I wish! But I know that's just not gonna happen. However-- I will join you on the challenge-- my goals just won't be quite so impressive. Hold on a minute, let me go measure my waist and tummy.....waist is 29.5 / tummy is 32.5 so maaaybe I could lose an inch in 5 weeks. I'll get a little dangerous and say-- in 5 weeks my waist will be 28 and tummy 31. So what do you think of that? You get shredded and I lose an 1.5 inches in my waist and tummy :). Pammie-- want to join us? :)

GREAT FREAKING JOB on the workouts spud!

IdahoSpud Sat, Jun-11-05 22:55

Interesting. I've never measured myself before tonight! I wear wrangler jeans with (allegedly) a 34 inch waist. The smallest measurement I was able to get around my entire waist *area* was 36! So how do I fit into 34 inch jeans? :confused:

The widest part of my entire belly, just above the navel, was 37, and at the navel was 36-1/2.

Here's wishing all of us the best!!! :hyper:

Something else cool: I ordered a Tanita scale that reads %BF. That ought to be interesting. The spring scale I have at home says I weigh 175 lbs (nekkid). The digital scale at work used for shipping says I weigh 189 (with clothes).

I doubt very much that my clothes weigh 14 lbs, so one of these scales is off about 10 lbs, hopefully the home one. My goal is to get into the 'obese' range on the BMI scale, but with about 8% bodyfat :)

galatia Sun, Jun-12-05 05:15

Great, Pammie's in ! I hope we are all successful! I know what you mean about pant sizes-- clothes sizing in general is confusing-- in women's clothes, depending on how much you're willing to pay, you will wear anywhere from a 4 to a 12. Now that gets confusing .
But really I just want to see abs.
Yeah....I wanna see abs too-- but on the "off chance" that I don't ....I want something telling me something happened, and hopefully something good . O.K. then we're all set-- measuring has been done, eating plans in place, exercising commencing in earnest .
