Measurements (of a Juice Apple)

Friday, May 17, 2013

I'm an apple, I suppose, but with lumps. What we call a juice apple since we can't sell it for eating fresh. Or a mesomorph with lumps. Big shoulders, narrow hips, all my weight in my waist/belly. Naturally have blocky thighs, which are resistant to change, but I am definitely not a pear. My body is bigger front to back from waist down than side to side.

I have been measuring my "hips" at my saddlebags. My actual thighs started at 25" and are still 24-25" depending on how hard I pull the measuring tape three months after I started.
( If I pull hard enough to get 23.5", I might break the tape!! emoticon )

But my saddlebags have made STUNNING improvement. They started off as blobs attached to the sides of my upper thighs - making it clear how they got their name. I was horribly embarrassed of them. Measuring across both legs closed at saddlebag level, I was 44" in mid-February. Measuring today, I am 39". Yaaay!

My waist is down 1.25". My belly is less lumpy. It still has the baggy look of someone who gained and lost weight twice in the last few years, but the lumps are reduced. I'll use the excuse that I don't want my next boss to find me here as the reason I won't take pictures of me in a string bikini, though. Even after all my hard work I become a luscious fresh morsel.

    I am a big apple with the stunning John Tenniel TweedleDum and TweedleDee carriage. I've got their belly and rounded face and then I have the butt and thighs and lower legs of a ten year old boy. Quite the worse permutation, I fear. My only recourse is to avoid wearing beanies.

    That's great that you lost inches. emoticon

    Smaller measurements? Totally awesome! A great NSV - (non scale victory.)

    Yay for the smaller measurements! I think they're called NSVs? (not sure of the term) I jus measured the other day, hesitantly, too, lol. You have had a lot of change in your body composition, though--congrats!
