Finally some progress

Thursday, March 27, 2008

So I got down to 165 on 3/3 It is now 3/27 and I finally get to put that I'm down to 164. I can't believe how long I was stuck! Which in retrospect, wasn't really that long. I could have been stuck a HECK of a lot longer.

It was just getting really frustrating! Especially since my measurements haven't changed since 1/31. Again, I'm only measuring neck, wasit and hips because when I first started I didn't realize you could add other body parts to measure. My waist is still larger than my hips (probably always will be no matter how much weight I lose!). Which is basically only annoying when it comes to clothes shopping!

I was online trying to figure out what size I'd need to get clothes from a certain store. They made me put in my waist measurement first and then gave me an "acceptable" list of hip measurements. But all of the hip measurements were WAY bigger than my hips are! So apparently I'm not allowed to wear their clothes.

Oh well, story of my life. I find pants that fit my waist and they are HUGE in the hip and leg region. If I find pants that look ok on my hips and legs, I won't be able to button them around my waist!

I always measure my waist first and when I'd lose an inch I'd think "awesome! one step closer to fitting into new pants!" Then I'd measure my hips, which would also be down 1-2 inches. Most people would love that, me...I'm hoping those dang hips will stick around!

I already don't like jogging in front of people because I'm constantly having to either hold onto my shorts or keep pulling them up. They are my size, they fit, but something about the jogging motion makes them want to slide down. For someone with hips, this isn't really a problem. The hips keep them from falling off. With me, the further you go down I get smaller and smaller so they just go sliding down!

I already had "flat-butt" syndrome and even IT has gotten smaller. For the record, I can no longer sit on seats that aren't padded for longer than to tie my shoes. The bench at my gym has no cushion, so I lace up my shoes as fast as possible so I can stand up and stop hurting my tailbone!

All of you women with hips and butts....I envy you.

    I have the opposite problem and trust me it is a problem. My waist is small but my butt is big. So to get pants to fit my butt the waist ends up way to big. So I always have to have shirts cover the waist region because my belt is bunching up my pants. Not cute... oh if we could all have personal tailors!

    what a great "problem" to have! Have you ever thought of a tailor? Dry cleaners often provide this service and its not that expensive. We use tailors for all sorts of clothing issues. And BTW what a great success story you are! Congrats!

    I know how you feel. I'm stuck, too. :( Feels like no matter what I do I only want to stay the same or lose 4oz then gain 1lbs and 2oz. It's so frustrating! But it's comforting to know I'm not alone. I'm trying to vary my calories a little, see if that helps.

    Amber...good for you! Maybe the waist would respond to core exercises...we have some simple at home exercises posted on the Oregon page...check them out.
