Body Measurements & My Sister Haley

Wednesday, July 13, 2011

I bought the tape measure 4 days ago, but is is a little difficult to measure myself, so I had to wait for my sister to get around to helping me out. Today was that day.

Neck: 18 inches

Left Upper Arm: 20 Inches
Right Upper Arm: 20 Inches
Left Forearm: 12 Inches
Right Forearm: 13 Inches
Left Wrist: 7 1/2 Inches
Right Wrist: 7 1/2 Inches

Upper Chest Area: 51 1/2 Inches
Around the Bust: 56 Inches
Bottom: 47 Inches

Waist: 57 Inches

Hips: 58 1/2 Inches

Left Thigh: 32 Inches
Right Thigh: 32 Inches
Left Calf: 20 Inches
Right Calf: 19 1/2

I don't know if I was supposed to measure this many areas, but I wanted to.

On a side note as my sister was measuring my wrist I told her as a joke - cause I wouldn't have done it - that she would have to measure each one of my fingers as well. She stopped what she was doing and looked at me and told me in no uncertain terms that she would not be measuring each of my fingers and that I was crazy. After I told her I was joking she laughed with me.

I have been staying with her family while I am visiting the Lawton, Oklahoma area. She is supportive to a degree, but she also does have a hard time with my eating habits. She asks me to go through fast food places which would have been a problem back in my January journey, but now not so much. She cooks a lot of great food and fries a lot of chicken. I think she is getting it now though. She took the initiative to tell me that we were having Chicken Curry for dinner and do I want my chicken baked instead of fried. That's why were sister. For as much crap as she gives me about not eating; she is willing to try to work out how to help me. That's love.

I hope each and every one of you out there in this great big world are making the right choices to reach your goals, and if not get started on it with the next decision you have to make.

Oh and a big thank you to Calin_Durus from the BLC Wave Runner's Team for being brave enough to post her before pictures even though she didn't wanna. Seeing that she and other struggle just as much with pictures of them selves and still take them and post them was a great motivator. My before pictures will be coming in the next day or so. Thanks girl!

Lots of Hugs & Positive Thoughts.
