Weigh In & Inches Update!





Just want to make sure everyone remembers where I started.

Yesterday I weighed about 168 which is up 1.5 from 2 weeks ago. BUT! We did measurements since it was the end of 12 weeks and I was very pleased with mine! Over the past 12 weeks I went down in every category besides legs and arms. Here are my current measurements (Jan 2010 measurements in purple parenthesis):

Chest  41 (47.5) -6.5
Waist 37 (52) <---WOW! -15
Hips 42.5 (52.5) -10
Thigh 22 (25) -6 (-3 ea.)
Arm  12 (14) -4 (-2 ea.)

Everyone knows I have that "fuzzy" math so please correct me if I'm wrong but I think that is 41.5 total inches lost! I still can't believe how big my waist was to begin with. I also can't believe how my waist and hips were practically the same measurement. That is way dangerous for your heart. I was hoping to be down to a 35 inch waist because that is the "heart happy" measurement for women, but it will have to wait until next time.

I guess that covers NSVs for this week :-)

ROCK ON GIRL! That's awesome. I try so hard not to get caught up in what the scale says and to remember my measurements when I get to that point each month. I have to remember muscle weighs more. You look amazing and your progress is nothing short of the same! ox

I didn't know that 35" was the good measurement for women. Last time I measured my waist about a month ago I was at 32". That's cool!

Congrats on your wondeful progress!

eelie,

You are doing so awesome and looking like one hot momma!

I hadn't been reading your blog much lately since my time has been limited. But you've been on my mind this past week....you know why? Well one is that I fell off the wagon and hadn't been exercising or watching my eating at all since I don't know when. I started to feel sorta, kinda panicky about it. This week I started thinking on how I just need to go for it and stop playing all these games. The mental game of making a million excuses as to why I can't consume myself with this "weight loss" thing right now when there is other stuff I need to focus on. Yeah....excuses.

Ok so now that I got that out of the way and feel motivated again after reading your blog....I am going to start right now losing weight. I think I have like 40 pounds to lose (still).

Chris xoxo
