How I loathe thee.
I finally got to taking my measurements today which I'll be posting to keep myself accountable and to track my progress. They are pretty much what I expected. The SP measurement tracker tells you to do it once a month but that seems like a long time to wait. I'll probably do it every 2 weeks on Monday because that's when I officially weigh myself.
My measurements in inches.
Natural Waist (smallest part): 30.5
Low Waist (bellybutton): 36
Upper Arm: 13.75
I did sneak a step on the scale today and was a bit disappointed. I still weigh 163.4lbs which is just a bit heavier than when I started SP. I usually lose weight consistently when I try but this time it seems harder. I wonder if it's because I'm doing mostly strength training? I've been walking too but in the past I usually did more intense cardio. I am somewhat more muscular than I used to be but I don't think it's enough for me to gain weight. I know it's still really early in so I probably shouldn't be too worried about it... I think I will kick up the cardio though and see how it goes.
