MAP DAY 25-26-27 - The end is in sight, but already found my next challenge.

Hi all,

The end of MAP is in sight, only 3 more days to go, But are we all going to stop or continue.

Well top I was looking though my wardrobe and found my old skinny jeans that I use to wear when I lost loads of weight after I had my son, they are a 8-10 and a 28 inch waist. I tried them on and they fit but I have horrible muffin top, they fitted nice on my bum and legs. So they are my next challenge to get into in the next 2-3 months.

My plan of action is to do elimination diet 90% of the time and to continue with the exercises at least 3 times a day and if I have time 4 times a day, but not going to worry to much if I cant fit all 4 in.

Since doing MAP I can now see my before kids body and my proper curves and shape my body sound be, I do not want to be skinny, or skinny fat I just want a nice lean shape. I am not bothered about scales anymore and I can happily jump on and off every day and it no longer effects my mood, as long as I see a small downward tread I am fine.

I keep myself in check with my tape measure and that shows me a more healthy progress.

So here is to the last few days of MAP and beyond.

I will post final pictures from MAP, when I dig out my camera and also measurements on Tuesday.

To all my fellow MAPPERs please let me know how you get on.


  1. Well done Deane, sounds like you are on a mission and that muffin top will dissappear soon as well! Yes, this is not over on Tuesday, its just a start to keep eating healthy (with a few additions for me!), and to work out. My goal is to work out every day, be ED friendly at least 80%, and to keep one fast day a week. There is no way I can keep going with 3 to 4 workouts daily, I basically have put my whole life on hold this month to be able to do this between full time work, kids, house, hubby, and everything else.
    Good luck to you, can't wait to see your pics!

  2. Sorry Chrissy, I just realized I called you by your last name in my earlier post... I had just read your "about me" when I started typing and the lovelydeane translated into me using your last name....

  3. Hello Annette, thats not a problem, lol, some of my good friends call me deannie.

    Sounds like you are doing really well, yes the 4 workouts are a killer some days. I have had to really good at managing my time too. xx

  4. I'm with you all the way - I too feel that I have made such great progress over the last month I'm not going to give it all up now! I wish I had your attitude towards the scales - maybe one day! Keep up the great work - nearly there!
