You know those “aha” moments people have? I had them when I was 264, and I had them again and again. The last time I had that moment, that kick started my year long trek of getting on board. Was actually a girl at work.
One on my friends/coworkers was measuring herself, yes… water bottle talk at it’s finest. She was all shocked what her numbers were. Now, she’s thin. She’s this cute little ball of yoga and energy. I even told her “Are you kidding me? I’d love to have your figure!” before she started measuring herself.
What shocked me was as she measured herself, in a very scientific method of string and a measuring tape… you know, the straight metal ones that you’d pull out of a tool box…the numbers sounded very familiar.
I pulled up my blog on my phone to my last measurements post and I was blown away.
Her measurements were only about 1-1.5 inches smaller than mine were at my smallest point. Excluding those damn lovehandles of mine.
Nothing like perspective, right?
So that’s what motivated me to get moving. That was the pinnacle moment back in 2016 that kicked my butt into gear.
Now, admittedly my measurements hadn’t changed all that much from 2015-2016. But here’s a little snippet if you don’t feel like going back to that.
So… here goes nothing. Let’s see what 25 pounds looks like!!!
Bust – 42.5″ -1.5
Waist – 36.5″ -2
Hips – 46″ –1.5
Lovehandles – 44″ -6
R thigh – 27″ -1
L thigh – 26.5 –1.5
R arm – 14″ –.5
L arm – 14.5″ -0
Neck – 14.5″ -0
YAY! I’d really like to do some backflips to that -6 for my lovehandles. Those were getting out of control.
And since this is supposed to be my weigh-in day, I suppose I’ll post that too.
Last weigh in: 212.3
This weigh in: 210.0
Lost lost: 2.3 pounds
Total lost from highest: 60 pounds
And a secondary YAY!
Thank you water weight? Weight weight? Fat weight? Who know? But I’m pretty darned pleased.
Til next time
