I DID IT!!! emoticon

July starting weight was 207 - this morning - 198.5 (notice I did NOT change ticker yet....waiting until Monday morning)

Lost 8.5 lbs

AND...... emoticon 6.5 inches

Bicep: no change
Chest: -1.75
Waist: -.5
Stomach: -2.00
Hips: -1.75
Thigh: no change (hmm - with all that running???)
Calf: -.5

Just goes to show you that you can't really "target" an area I guess.

I am pretty happy with July's results. emoticon

I am going for another 5 inches for August and 9#'s

All right I am challenged, I can't seem to measure myself accurately. I seem to measure one day and then the next the measurements are way different.

I really want to lose inches off my waist etc. is there a place on this site that explains for slow people like me exactly how to measure?

OK - I am not doing cartwheels, but I have lost 3.5 inches this month. Best part of that is ONE inch in my Butt - love it. Probably from walking so much.

Only lost 3 pounds in August, but probably an adjustment to losing so quickly at first and I haven't been strength training at all.

I will kick it up in August! emoticon

In order to lose 5 inches on your waist, you must not eat anything but celery for a month!!

5" combined total of everywhere you measure! Ex. waist, chest, hips, thigh, bicep.. anywhere you want to see smaller and want to measure to track your progress!

5" off your waist in a month would be insane! HA :)

If hunger is not the problem, then eating is not the solution.

You shall not try to relive yesterday for good or ill, it is forever gone. Concentrate on what is happening in your life and be happy now!

Double checking here...what do we mean when we say 5"...off the waist? Other measurements? I'm a 42" waist now...there is NO WAY I could drop to a 37" in one month...!

I have a feeling I'm missing some info here...please fill me in or perhaps you ARE serious about 5" off the waist in one month...?

Here's your place to take some focus off that daunting scale and track your progress with a number that actually measures how your body is changing!

emoticon Our goal: To each lose 5" in July!

Come on TEAM! I know we can do it! Woo!

Get your measurements done and be ready to leave those inches in July ~ FOREVER!
