The one thing I was able to note this morning was my 3.8 pound loss since last week's weigh-in. I am thrilled that the numbers are moving downward, but I must admit it was the tiniest bit irking to see the figure on the scale today since yesterday morning I was 0.2 of a pound less. I know! I know! Fluctuations, many reasons, bigger picture, blah, blah, blah... It was just a minuscule annoyance, but in the spirit of accurate recording I am writing my feelings down.
My measurements on the other hand, exceeded my expectations. They showed very similar drops to what I had last time which is great because I was thinking that I would see less of a loss due to the initial momentum potentially slowing down. The exceptions to this are that my bust lost less than last time I did an update and my hips lost more. Really, I couldn't ask for that to have gone better for me though, so I am definitely not complaining!
Weight - 223.8 lbs (-30.8 from start / -16.0 from Sept.)
Bust - 45.5 inches (-4.5 from start / -1.5 from Sept.)
Waist - 44.0 inches (-4.0 from start / -2.0 from Sept.)
Hips - 51.5 inches (-3.5 from start / -2.5 from Sept.)
Arms - 16.5 inches (-1.0 from start / -0.5 from Sept.)
Thighs - 29.5 inches (-3.0 from start / -1.5 from Sept.)
BMI - 35.1 (-4.8 from start / -2.5 from Sept.)
And for the pièce de résistance, here is my progress picture:
I still have trouble telling if there is much of a difference from last month, but I had a couple great NSV's today that I will be writing about later that make me think that perhaps I am being too critical of myself. I do know that when I compare the photograph from the start of this journey to this one I can see some changes. So maybe there is hope for me yet!
