Surprising Week 5 Measurements!

Saturday, March 10, 2012


Yesterday I was blown away. Admittedly, I've been putting off the one month measure because I really wasn't sure that I had done anything. I do feel better and lighter everyday, but really? Change in the measuring tape? No way.

I've lost ten pounds which was surprising, but Spark People has been helping me just realize what exactly I put in my body. So it has been five weeks. My first measure was Feb 1. Second measure was March 9.


Shoulder -1.25 in
Bust -2.0 in
Waist -0.5 in
Arm -0.25 in
Hip -0.75 in
Thigh Same
Calf -1.0 in

So I lost Total 5.75 in all over my body! In five weeks! Pretty awesome, and I feel good about it for sure.

What I would like to ask everyone is, does anyone know where I would make one of those virtual me's that I see on some peoples pages? I guess you enter in your measurements and it generates a virtual you? I would like to see what I "actually" look like. I'm sure its different than my own perception...

Go ME!

    I'm not sure about the virtual mes. I think a lot of people create them through their biggest loser games.

    Congratulations on losing the inches! You're doing amazingly well! Keep it up, girl!!
