More measurements.

Since my weight is taking its time moving down, I thought I'd look for another form of motivation, so I decided to take measurements again. It's been since the middle of May since I've done that.
Turns out, of the three measurements I took in May, there is not that much of a difference. In May, my bra line was 36", and now it's 35". My waist has stayed the same: 35" then and now. But my hips were 43". Now they are 41 1/2". That's encouraging! I should probably be measuring my thighs and arms, too, but that's a little scary. My skin is taking its time shrinking back in those areas, and I'm looking a little wrinkly.
But hey! What's worse? Skin full of fat, or skin wrinkly because the fat is gone? That's a tough call, but I'll go with the skin minus the fat, thank you. That's what Spanx are for, right?


  1. As long as people can't see through clothes wrinkled skin is fine with me. When you are a senior citizen the wrinkles appear on your face. I had rather hear "She has a lot of wrinkles" than "She sure has a huge behind". Thank you for your post here and at www.everydayhealth.com. You may never know how many people you encourage.

  2. Thanks, Texas! I would love more than anything to be able to reach out and help anyone that was struggling! I know my plan won't work for everyone; everyone has different health and emotional issues. But I'd like to at least share what I've learned. Thanks again for your comments. It makes my day! :-)
