I cannot find my other report, to compare my losses, so this is based on the last 2 months or so.
Bust– -.25 inch
Waist– -2 inches
Abdomen -.75 inch
Hips -1.75 inches
Thighs -1.50 inches
Arm -1 inch
Weight -16.75 pounds
Total Inches Lost -7.25 inches
Body Fat % -3%
And it says my strength went from 107 to 116 (I do Curves Smart)
After being weighed and measured, the manager asked if I could stay for the pictures. Apparently they were having photographs taken and she said since I was such a great member and lost so much weight, I should stay for that. However, the pictures were going in the paper…yikes, and I couldn’t do that or my dad would definitely find out I go to Curves! lol
But really for the one month I only lost 7 pounds…I wish I had lost more though. I seem to lose weight one week (like 1-3 pounds) then just gain it or most of it back the following week. I am still exercising at the same intensity, and the previous weeks I have been eating the same, and I even dropped my calories figuring that might be the answer. Might it be a plateau, or something? I would guess sodium, some days I do well but other days I am out of my range…
A few weeks ago I found a great pack of DVDs at a thrift shop for 3$! They are 10 of the best workouts, over 12 hours of video on 5 dvds! Today I found a workout dvd for….1 cent! haha. I was in the mall at FYE and was browsing their exercise videos (they are more expensive than Walmart!) But they have some of the Leslie Sansone walks that I can’t find at Walmart. So then I started looking at workouts I was unfamiliar with and found one that said it cost a penny! It is a ten minute solution, and it is a sampler. But it has 3 sampler workouts, 10 minutes each! I got that! I even asked the worker if it was a typo…he said even if it was he had to give me it at that price. So wow…watch out for great deals out there! You never know what you will find!

Back in July I found a denim skirt at a yard sale, and bought it. It was a size 20 and at around 275-280 pounds I could get the skirt up but was unable to zip it. A few weeks ago I realized that it actually fit me! So my legs are one part of my body which I hate, so I did try to find nylons or leg stockings that would hide them (and also keep my legs warm!) but the one pair I got that was 2x did not fit me, nor did the 4x (what is up with that?).
So despite not having anything covering my legs, I wore my skirt today! It was warm so at least I did not freeze.

I'm trying to stick with my initial plan to work on a small goal for each month, a healthy goal. Then after 12 months, if nothing at least I added 12 healthy habits.
Well the last few months I have been working on lowing my sodium intake. It was over 3000+ at once, but now I hover around the recommended 2300 range. I am happy with this, and will try to continue it.
But this month I am going to work on getting more calcium. I think I am going to start drinking 2 cups of skim milk each day, that is only like 180 calories. Eventually I'd like to be able to increase it for 3 or 4 cups, as long as my calories allow. I think this will be possible, since I have trouble getting enough calories some days. So this might even help me add to my calories, especially in those days.
Other new goals are to do the 4 mile walk, with my new Leslie Sansone dvd. I have done 2 different 3 mile walks, and think that I am not being challenged or advancing. But I wonder if I will be able to keep up with the 4 mile...if not I will find a way to build up to that.

This is from the 18 of September until now.
Waist -1 inch
Hips -.50 inch
Thighs -1 inch
Arms -.25 inch
Weight -9.75 pounds!
The body fat % thing says I gained body fat, but the Curves Trainer who weighed and measured me said that there are a list of reasons why that might be, like being close to TOM, salty foods and so on.
But the Scale showed almost a 10 pound loss! I am 248 according to their scale, I’m out of the 250s!
I also went shopping last night….in my closet! I cleaned it out and found my smaller sized shirts and some smaller sized sweatshirts for this winter. And then I sorted some of the summer clothes towards the back of the closet, along with some things that are too big. I need a bigger closet, a walk in closet is preferred! lol. But now I need to find some smaller sized pants…but I plan to go shopping Thursday so I will see if I can find any.
