Weigh-In For Week 34

Weight - 150.4 lbs (-104.2 from start / -8.2 from March)
Bust - 37.0 inches (-13.0 from start / -0.5 from March)
Waist - 32.5 inches (-15.5 from start / -1.5 from March)
Hips - 40.5 inches (-14.5 from start / -1.5 from March)
Arms - 13.5 inches (-4.0 from start / -0.5 from March)
Thighs - 23.5 inches (-9.0 from start / -0.5 from March)
BMI - 23.6 (-16.3 from start / -1.2 from March)

I am down three more pounds and so, so close to my posted goal weight! Hmmm… the two Easter dinners I will be attending over this long weekend may slow down the progress a bit and prevent me from seeing that significant number for a little while longer, but I can wait. I have come so far already!

I noticed something interesting today when I was doing my measurements. My arms are actually starting to bulge in different areas and it may mean that I have to start setting up the measuring tape a little differently. I have always taken my number from the widest part of the arm – around the bicep – but now a little higher up, towards my shoulder, my deltoids are starting to look almost as big as the original part of my arm. I’m getting muscles and it wouldn’t surprise me if I eventually see a gain in those specific numbers if they continue to develop. I never would have expected that!

I am happy with everything about my weigh-in today. I can see small changes on the photo, which I wasn’t expecting, and I am thrilled that the measurements are still slowly trickling downwards. With losing fewer pounds as I near the end of the weight loss portion of this journey, I would have thought that I would see fewer differences. So far I am still noticing them though and it just adds fuel to the fire!

  3. You can see small changes???? Are you kidding me???? Unbelievable. Fantastic. I am so happy for you!!! You are truly a different person on the outside and I'm sure some things have changed on the inside. Can you believe you are .4 away from goal? That's less than half a pound!?! It's a BM at best. WOW WOW WOW
