Lose 20 Pounds in Six Weeks: Enjoying My Spring Fever!By Samantha von Sperling | April 18, 2012 | Entertainment, Relationships
As Image Gal Samantha von Sperling finishes up her up her program, she shares some views on coming out with a new you.
Men have often told me that regardless of what Punxsutawney Phil in Pennsylvania did on Groundhog Day, the official start of spring in New York is marked by signs of cleavage coming out of hibernation! One of the things I’ve noticed as my waist got smaller is that my girls have definitely become the main attraction. Shedding the black uniforms of winter has meant a lot more to me with my weight loss; I actually want to wear more flirtatious feathers in lighter, brighter colors.
I’ve been able to put away winter sweaters to that hard-to-reach shelf at the top of the closet, not only because of the warmer weather, but I no longer need to hide my arms. Thanks to Scott Bitterman of Emerge Athletics’ workouts, I’ll make the most of my t-shirts and spring tops. Weeding through my wardrobe has actually been like shopping as I try on clothes that had been pushed aside for being just a “little too tight.” Does it fit after two months of kickboxing and salad? The answer is a definitive yes. FASHION TIP: I’ll add a new belt to give my fave pieces a second life.
It’s not just me; men are getting in on the action too as they begin to exercise shirtless in the parks so that I can admire their forms, reminding us of what makes the other half of the species so attractive in the first place. And with my new, stronger, leaner body, I am ready to actually share a compliment or two with one that catches my eye.
As people find any excuse to be out in the world again, pouring into the streets, parks and outdoor caf├⌐s, I realize this sunnier, warmer backdrop can be a part of my transformation: running through the parks; bicycling on paths and spending hours walking through the city to find the perfect summer frock.
This season is going to be one to rememberΓÇª Happy Spring!
Check in next week as Samantha reveals her transformation in our final installment!
