The most I have revealed to this point is how much weight I have lost so far. That doesn't mean much if you don't know how much I weighed to begin with. I've been pretty bummed that I didn't keep track of how many inches I have lost since I started losing weight last February 2010. Aside from weight loss, inches lost is a pretty big indicator of just how much fat you have actually dropped. But I wasn't thinking of this experience as an experiment when it all started back then, so I didn't measure myself in inches.
BUT... I found an old notebook from 2008! It has measurements that I took of myself from March 31, 2008. I was really excited when I found this. I gained twelve pounds between March 31, 2008 and February 2010, so these numbers I'm about to share are not at my peak weight, but twelve pounds off isn't bad, and it's the best I can do. I'm super stoked to have something to compare to in inches now!
March 31, 2008
Band: 37" (underneath bust)
November 21, 2010
Waist: 30" - I might have measured in the wrong place back then...
Bust: 38" - I can't say I'm thrilled about this loss, but what can I do?
This is a different and fun way to look at it! I will continue to measure inches every so often and add it to my Progress page.
Today I am thankful for distractions that get me through my homework.
