Here is my second set of measurements. The first measurements post can be found here. It was on April 11, and I said that I would do monthly measurements updates... oops! But better late than never!
I could not find my little red shorts, but I found another tiny pair of shorts for the comparison photo. I must say that I don't see much of a difference, but here they are, side by side, April 11 me vs. May 21 me.
My new meaurements (+/- in inches)
neck - 12.5 (0)
upper arm - 11 (0)
forearm- 8.5 (-.5)
bust (widest part)- 37 (0)
waist (smallest part) - 30 (0)
waist (largest part, belly button) - 36 (-1)
hips (largest part, butt) - 42.5 (0)
thigh (largest part)- 22 (-1)
calf (largest part) -15 (0)
total difference: -2.5 inches!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This is exciting to me, since INCHES lost is what I'm going for. Inches lost will get me into my goal jeans, even if pounds lost haven't. I'm so excited that my hard work has paid off.
If you aren't already taking measurements regularly, I highly recommend it. It has been highly motivating. I will try to go 4 or 5 weeks and then measure again.
