Measurements Before & After, Dec 2012 and Apr 2013

Tuesday, April 02, 2013

On 26th December, I took measurements for weight, inches, hip-waist ratio, body fat % and BMI. And yesterday, 1st April 2013, I took another measurements to compare and not quite happy with the result, I think this might caused by my troubled sleep which a possible reason that I always have this urge to eat more and more and always so tired and sleepy! It's not because I can't sleep but because I have lots of distractions before sleep in my bed including fall asleep in the living room!

- Weight (shoulder-length hair, naked except for a bracelet, necklace and earrings)
Before = 56 kg / 123.2 lbs
After = 58 kg / 127 lbs
Result = +2 kg / +3.8 lbs

- Neck
Before = 12.5"
After = 13"
Result = +0.5"

- Upper arm
Before = 10.5"
After = 10.75"
Result = +0.25"

- Lower arm
Before = 8"
After = 8.75"
Result = +0.75"

- Wrist
Before = 5.75"
After = 5.75"
Result = 0"

- Chest/Breasts area
Before = 34"
After = 35"
Result = +1"

- Under breasts
Before = 27.5"
After = 27.75"
Result = +0.25"

- Waist
Before = 30"
After = 31.5"
Result = +1.5"

- Hips
Before = 37"
After = 37.5"
Result = +0.5"

- Butts
Before = 39.25"
After = 40.25"
Result = +1"

- Thigh
Before = 22.5"
After = 23"
Result = +0.5"

- Calf
Before = 13"
After = 14"
Result = +1"

- Hip-waist ratio (Avocado: 0.81 to 0.85)
Before = 0.81 (Avocado)
After = 0.84 (Avocado)
Result = +0.03

- Body fat % ( www.bmi-calculator.net/b ody-fat-calculator/ ) (Acceptable = 25-31%)
Before = 26.5%
After = 26.54%
Result = +0.04

- BMI (healthy = 18.5 to 24.9)
Before = 23
After = 23.8
Result = +0.8

Wow, total increment from my inches measurements is 7.25", almost as big as my forearm/lower arm! Actually, I already know that I've increased my measurements based on how tight my clothes become, especially jeans and bras. But I still wished that by end of first quarter 2013, I will get some losses.

At least, I have some good news - my wrist still has same measurement, body fat % is still in acceptable range and my BMI is still in healthy range :D

Conclusion: Need to fix my sleep, I think that's the big factor here!

    Sleep loss causes hormones in your body to not act right...

    ...you are more likely to get hungry and not be as satisfied by what you eat..
    ..and I think (I can't remember where to point you to to verify this) that it interferes with the hormones to do with storing fat so you are more apt to gain weight.

    Still, though you feel like you are heading in the wrong direction, at least you are still in healthy ranges. Keep on pushing and troubleshooting. I'm sorry you aren't seeing the results you want right now.

    Girl yor measurements are really good!! You also work out an incredible amount and are building muscle! When we do our BMI online the accuracy is not that of our dr. I am sure that you have built muscle and changed your body for the better. Keep doing what you are and I pray for better sleep for you because our bodies really need it to recover. Next quarter you will see some change you want. I too get upset when the numbers are not going down and it frustrates me. We can do this my friend!! You are gorgeous!!

    Your BMI is excellent! That is really good. The other numbers might not be what you hope for, but you are definitely doing things right by keeping yourself accountable. Good for you!
