So recently the scale has been staying in one place despite my tracking my food and stepping up my exercise. However, I did think I was LOOKING a lot leaner, so I got out my tape measure to check. My waist is now 26 inches. 26! I don't think I've EVER had a waist that small, not even as a little kid!
My around-the-butt measurement has actually gotten slightly larger, which probably means that I measured wrong last time, but which I prefer to take as evidence that all of those squats are working, haha. :) So then I used Spark's calculator to check my waist to hip ratio: exactly .70. It used to be .75!
Then I did an awkward little happy dance in my undies all around the apartment, and my boyfriend told me that my butt looked good. YES IT DOES, GOOD SIR, YES IT DOES.
