I took my measurements so I can tell how many inches I loose. I think that this is more efficient and, at times, more encouraging than looking at the scale every week. Due to the fact that I am exercising now and doing toning exercises, I may gain muscle mass, which may cause my weight to stay the same at times, but my inches to go down. So to all those people out there who read my blog or just come across it, here are my measurements:

Chest: 38"
Waist: 36"
Hips: 43"
R. Thigh: 21.25"
L. Thigh: 21.5"
R. Calf: 14.5"
L. Calf: 14.5"
R. Arm: 13.25"
L. Arm: 13.25"

In the process of measuring myself, I admit that I had to take a deep breathe, considering I have never been this...uh...well, for lack of better words...wide. But, I have a good outlook! After all, I'm loosing weight!

With that, I will set some realistic goals for myself. Here they are:

Chest: 35"
Waist: 30"
Hips: 38"
R. Thigh: 19"
L. Thigh: 19"
R. Calf: 12"
L. Calf: 12"
R. Arm: 11.25"
L. Arm: 11.25"

Let's see those inches come off me!


  1. I'm glad to see that you're not discouraged with the second week loss. The first week is always huge and second week is less. THe first week you lose a lot of water weight. I'll have a great loss then the next week a much smaller loss. I've learned that your body goes up and down, but it is the end result that matters. You're probably not gaining muscle mass yet, they told us in WW a few weeks back that it takes more than four months of heavy weight lifting to gain 2 lbs of muscle! Shocking I know, but informative!

  2. Man alive! 4 months! Well...I guess I have my work cut out for me the, huh? :)
