Ok people here it is. I re-started tracking back on June 24th. My measurements that day were as follows:
Right Arm – 14″
Right Thigh – 25.75″
Hips – 44″
Bust – 33.5″
Weight – 195
On Friday October 4th they were as follows:
Right Arm – 13″ (I suspect they are getting bigger b/c there is a gun hiding in there suddenly!)
Right Thigh – 24″
Hips – 40″
Bust – 31.75″
Weight – 180.5 (I attribute some of these lbs to the plague)
That is a total inch loss of…9.5 inches in 4 months and it is staying off. I will take it!! I am definitely getting stronger and setting new lift records. The pull up stubbornness continues but I’ll be damn if its not getting close. My negatives have gone from falling to the floor to 7-10 seconds. I can do a baby jump and get my chin over the bar with a very fancy leg flailing (think breast stroke legs but not in the water…its quite comical).
Need some visual proof? Here are some pics!
Mid-November I will re-meausre and take pics in the original outfit for “true” comparison purposes. The June pics are not cute and what has possessed me to put them here is beyond me. Also the blue top is a Medium and is baggy and the shorts are a large (both Nike brand which apparently runs smaller because the tiny people at the gym buy a size bigger in them…whoop).
Another victory. I bought shorts for my honeymoon (in June of 2007) with hopes they would fit. Yeah, never happened (and I was low 160’s then). I took the tags off those bad boys and wore them yesterday with room to spare! See more proof the scale is a lying whore and you should stay off it! It’s hard I know but don’t let it define you!
More posts to come this week! I am really going to make apple crisp I’ve been promising too! I also plan to attempt paleo pizza this week (1 hawian with BBQ and pine apple, and one with some crazy stuff). And I know football Sunday posts have been missing in action but life happened (more details on that some day). Ill be back this Sunday.
