Weigh-In For Week 30

I have to admit, I am not seeing much of a difference from February’s picture (although maybe there is a bit of a difference in the stomach roll). I’m not complaining! I have lost 9.2 pounds since last month’s progress photo though, which is less than I have dropped in any other month, so I think that things are just slowing down a bit. Obviously it is harder to note changes when there is nearly half the loss that there has been in some previous months. I’m not worried about it – I will keep chipping away at this body even if the improvements are a bit difficult to discern as they become more incremental.

My measurements tell the same tale. Again, I’m not stressed about them – I admit I may be feeling a tiny bit deflated by the slowing progress – but I’m still happy that there is development of any kind. This is, however, the first month that I have had a number (my arms) not go down in size.

Weight - 158.6 lbs (-96.0 from start / -9.2 from Feb.)
Bust - 37.5 inches (-12.5 from start / -0.5 from Feb.)
Waist - 34.0 inches (-14.0 from start / -2.0 from Feb.)
Hips - 42.0 inches (-13.0 from start / -1.5 from Feb.)
Arms - 14.0 inches (-3.5 from start / -0.0 from Feb.)
Thighs - 24.0 inches (-8.5 from start / -1.0 from Feb.)
BMI - 24.8 (-15.1 from start / -1.5 from Feb.)

My weight has dropped 2.2 pounds from last week which is significant since today is the first time I will be recording a ‘normal’ weigh-in on my sidebar. I am thrilled that I have gotten to this point! I was just saying to someone that I started off at my highest weight as morbidly obese. By the time I started this blog, I was just barely out of that category and into the level 2 obesity classification. I moved from there down into level 1 obesity, kept going right through overweight, and am now just over the marker for being classed as normal. I am very proud of how far I have come!
