Thank goodness I take my measurements!

Saturday, February 12, 2011

Since I last took my measurements a month ago I have lost a full inch on my waist, 2 full inches on my upper thigh and 3/4 of an inch on my calf.... and while my curvaceous hips did not budge (that will take some work) I am totally thrilled that I have actually lost 3 3/4 inches off my body. That is awesome and it totally motivates me to keep at it!! Can't wait to get to my exercise today!

I wish I measured my upper arm last month- not sure what happened with that but I look forward to next months measurement.

SO PLEASE IF YOU HAVEN'T MEASURE YOURSELF, DO IT!!! You may not see the scale move but if you are exercising regularly you WILL see the measuring tape tighten to a smaller number and it feels GREAT!!

So if my body moves at this slow and steady pace of 3 pounds and 3 inches a month... that would be 36 pounds and 36 inches and while my goal is to be down 53 pounds, I will be happy with 36 in one year (and of course keep going for the full 53)- if it had to be that way! I will look so different!

I CAN DO THIS, WATCH ME!!! emoticon
