For Good Measure...


One thing that I’m really pleased that I did when I started my Weight Loss was take measurements of myself. 

When I was discussing it one time, a friend said that she didn’t think measurements were important, because there can be variances on how one person measures from another, etc, so measurements are not that accurate.

I’m glad that didn’t stop me, because while I’m in complete understanding of what she was saying, I had control because I was the one measuring myself.  And, I figured, once the tiny increments of a single inch gave way to multiple inches, it would not be a huge ordeal if a measurement was off 1/8” or so.  I just made it a point to always make sure the tape was fitted to my skin, but not indenting or anything. 

I took my measurements yesterday morning, and when I calculated my losses, I was shocked to see that I’ve lost a total of ELEVEN inches from around my biggest part, my “Gut 2 Butt”, as I call it.  I wasn’t sad to see a loss of over TEN inches from around my waist either.  I guess I could be traumatized that I’ve lost over EIGHT inches from my bust, but since I’m small breasted anyways, I think the majority of it came off of side fat.

Below is my progress chart so far:

*I could not fit the measuring tape around me.  I held it in place, then marked it, then moved the tape, so it's possibly off a couple eights of an inch or so.
