Wanted to share this with you all. I took my measurements on the day I started 26/04/08


Bust 45"
Waist 40"
Hips 43"


I know I have lost 12lbs so far but I have been struggling to stay focused:argh: as I stayed the same last week. So the tape measure came out again ..

Bust 41" a loss of 4 inches
Waist 37" a loss of 3 inches
Hips 41" a loss of 2 inches

I wouldn't measure every week but every 4 weeks..As we all know about muscle and fat weight. So whilst you are exercising:character00116: you may not lose lbs but inches. And we all know when we dont lose lbs we feel demotivated. Also I weigh myself on the scales:scale: at Boots and have kept all my tickets. Just got them out and looked at the very first one.. 14 stone 4lbs .. then looked at todays 13 stone 6 lbs .. I know which one looks better.

Weighed in today and STS but came home and did measurements and have lost another 1/2 inch on my waist so am going to consider that as my loss this week. Upped my activity this week, lots of walking and Air Gliding so perhaps toning up the muscles. Really glad about doing the measurements as well because I could be inclined to be a little miffed about staying the same weight. Although that has left me with a 7lb target this week (gulp) I am going to spend this afternoon planning for shopping on payday (tuesday) and rethinking a few things as I think my body is getting used to things. Also dont think there has been enough veg in my diet. Also posted this on Team FBI thread

super well done to you :party0011:

I never take measurements, only coz I would have to drawer permanent lines all over my body so I knew exactly where to measure the next time round :eek:

I agree with what you say though...I'm just crap at measuring :sigh:

well done xxx:party0038:
