Inches or pounds...that is the question...

Sunday, October 31, 2010

When I started the BLC challenge...I was obsessed with the scale. Any little ounce up would make me want to cry. I still shed a tear or two..but it is happening a lot less now. I weighed 196 lbs at the beginning of the challenge and at the last weigh in I was 187.4...almost 10 lbs! But I also wrote down my measurements which is where I noticed a big change...
Here's my measurements:
Weight 196 NOW 187.6
Size 16... SIZE 14
Waist 33 1/2... 28... THAT'S 5 1/2 INCHES!!!!
Hips 41... 39... 2 INCHES
Bust 37... 36... 1 INCH
Thigh 23... 22 1/2... - 1/2 INCH
Calf 16... 16 - WIERD..NO CHANGE
Arm 12 1/4... 11 1/2... 3/4 INCH

THAT'S PROGRESS....I feel very good about these results so far. I need a new wardrobe..but i'm holding out till the end of the challenge.

    GREAT JOB on the changes! The calf measurement isn't a surprise, since you're such an active runner, I'm sure that particular spot is actually pretty toned already!

    As someone who's GAINED in all areas but one this last measurement day, you are an inspiration to me!

    Wow! Those are really impressive numbers. I'm especially envious of your 5 1/2 inches from your waist!
