Evidently, I not only spaced on November 1st, but on October 1st as well. You guys can't let me forget to post my statistics! Get on me ~ push me!

So, let's get down to business. I've been really frustrated with my numbers lately becuase the scale and the tape measure haven't moving as quickly as I wanted them to (I'm an instant gratification kind of girl, ya know.). But my dear husband tells me every single day that my body shape is changing and to just be patient, the numbers will move.

In my mind I know he's right, but in my heart I can't help but feel disappointed. I know it will happen.

Guess what ~ it's happening! I was flabbergasted with my tape measure this morning. I may have actually hugged it. I may have done a little dance with it. May have. So here we go:

  • Starting Weight: 225.2/214.2
  • Height: 5'5"/5'5"
  • Starting BMI: 37.5 (Obese)/35.6
  • Bust measurement: 48"/47"
  • Waist measurement: 48"/42"
  • Hips measurement: 51.5"/49"
  • Biceps measurement: 12.5"/12"
  • Thighs measurement: 23.5"/21
  • Body Fat Percentage: 53%/49.8%

That's a total of 11.5 inches lost. 11. 5 inches of me that no longer exist!! Do you see that waist measurment?!? I've lost 6" off my waist!! It's no wonder my pants are getting loose!

So there we have it. I'm four months into my journey and things are really starting to happen for me. I'm ok with slow and steady. It teaches me patience. :D


  1. Hi! I just found your blog today. Congrats on your success! 11.5 inches lost is a huge accomplishment!

    I'm in the middle of C25k right now so your posts are great motivation. Week 6, Day 2 is scheduled for tonight. The last day of the program with any walking breaks. Eep!

  2. YAY on all of the lost inches!!!!! No matter what the scale says when your clothes start feeling looser you know you are accomplishing something :)

  3. Wow girl, your waist is really slimming down. Great work.
