Weigh In and Measurements

Well, I am here to say I have LOST WEIGHT AND INCHES!!

Here are the results as of this morning:

Weight: 150!!!!  I am so stoked! I almost never use that word but for some reason it seems appropriate!! So, so excited. That means I have lost 14 pounds!!

Measurements:
Bust:  35.5″ (lost 1.5 inches)
Waist:  29″ (lost 1 inch)
Stomach 33.5″ (it was 30″ when I started so clearly I didn’t measure it properly the first time)
Right arm:  11.25 (lost .5″)
Left arm:  11.25 (lost .5″)
Neck: 12.5″ (didn’t measure it before)
Right calf: 13.75″ (didn’t measure calves before)
Left calf: 13.75
Right thigh: 28″ (didn’t measure thighs before?!)
Left thigh: 28″
Hips: 45″ (lost 2.5 inches!!!!!!!!!!)

So, total inches lost is 6 inches! Wow,  14 pounds and 6 inches?! Really! I am so proud of myself and totally motivated to keep on going.

Weight and Measurements.. scary!

I bought a measuring tape a few weeks ago and have been meaning to do this as often weight loss is seen in inches before pounds.I measured myself so they may not be completely accurate but I will do them again myself every month or so.  Okay, here we go. Oh wait, first I must share my weight. I weighed myself first thing this morning and the scale read:

164 pounds (!!)  This is my heaviest in my entire life.

Measurements:
Bust:  37″
Waist:  30″ (at thinnest part)
Stomach 30″ (at fattest part)
Right arm:  11.5″
Left arm:  11.5″
Hips: 47.5″ (!!!!!!!!!!)

So starting today I am cutting way back on grains, sugar and alcohol and starting to exercise and drink more water. I am also starting 5:2. Fasting on Mondays and Thursdays is the current plan. I am officially disgusted with myself :-/ but ready to reverse the aging process and find my former attractive self. 🙂
