4 Weeks In, 10 Inches Lost!!!

Sunday, February 17, 2013

So, I'm at the end of week 4 of a Biggest Loser Challenge I'm doing, and I've officially lost 10 inches from around my body!!!

What's really exciting about this is that it's been a pretty consistent loss from around my body, rather than mostly concentrated in one place; right now, I'm losing everywhere. It's rewarding to see that even when the scale doesn't move much (which it didn't for a while because of some hydration issues), I'm doing the right thing. Besides, the scale can be affected by a million different things that may not have any effect whatsoever on my actual size. Measurements, yeah, those are definitely progress!

Now let's see if I can get another 10 inches off in the next 4 weeks!

Here are starting measurements, followed by current measurements!

Starting Measurements:
Neck: 15 inches
Bust/Chest: 56 inches
Waist: 45 inches
Upper Arm: 20 inches
Lower Arm: 14 inches (wasn't sure what this meant so I measured the fullest part of my forearm)
Hips: 60 inches
Thigh: 35 inches
Calf: 20 inches
Total Inches: 354 inches (arms and legs times two)

Current Measurements
Neck: 14.75 inches
Bust/Chest: 54 inches
Waist: 44 inches
Upper Arm: 19.5 inches
Lower Arm: 13 inches
Hips: 58.75 inches
Thigh: 34.75 inches
Calf: 19 inches
Total Inches: 344 inches (counting arms and legs twice)
Total Inches Lost: 10 inches lost!!!

    Way to go losing 10 inches! To be honest, even as this season's leader I never knew what they meant by lower arm either. 0.o

From now on I'm doing the forearm though. But I think mine grew :-P

    WOW!! Way to go!! That is seriously awesome! And I am super jealous that you're losing inches all around! I tend to keep getting smaller in all the areas that I'm not that concerned about, but all the areas I desperately want to shrink... yeah, not so much! I'm going to end up with stick arms, a tiny waist, no butt, and big hips! emoticon

Oh, and the fullest part of the forearm is where I always measure, too. emoticon
