two pounds and 5 inches down
Saturday, October 19, 2013
I weigh myself at home but I don't do the tape measure measurements. The clinic scale is always exactly two pounds more than mine. Therefore the weight loss on the scale at the clinic was not a surprise. The loss in inches was a great surprise.
At first my coach thought there was an error because it showed I lost 10 inches. Then I reminded her that last week I was sick so we are looking at the loss over two weeks.
I'll assume I lost 5 inches the first week, 5 inches the next. Most of this was from my thighs. I lost 2 inches in the circumference of each. On my 5 ' 2" frame that is a lot. Every inch really shows on the height challenged. I don't really understand why I lost about half an inch around my neck. I guess that fat finds it's way everywhere.
I found a great pill organizer for the IP supplements. I was thinking about travelling and how I don't want to take all these pill bottles with me. I found a deep seven day tray that has 4 compartments for each day. Perfect for IP!
Keep going everyone! It doesn't matter the rate of loss, just keep going. We are already so much healthier than we used to be and that is what should really matter.
