Measurements 9/2/11

Well blogging world, I was brave enough to share my weight, now I'm going to be brave enough to share my measurements! Alright, I don't think this is as scary as how much I weigh but still, taking measurements is never fun. It is another way to track progress though so that's good :)

Here goes.

Hips: 53 1/2"

Right Arm: 16"

Left Arm: 15 3/4"

Right Thigh: 29"

Left Thigh: 30 3/4"

Chest: 39"

Waist: 35"

I took some other measurements but those are just things for me that I had wanted to see. Since the last time I took my measurements (not sure when that was), my waist is down 2 inches and my thighs are a little smaller!!!!!! PROGRESS!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm down 2 pounds from the metformin, current weight is 221. Still working hard. Eating has been pretty good, exercise has been so-so but still happening. Will be whipping out a DVD tomorrow since the gym is closed.

The hubby and I have been watching the show HEAVY on netflix. For those of you who don't know what it is, it's basically where they take 2 people and bring them to this place for 6 months where they are taught to work out and eat healthier and correctly. It's pretty intense.  Anyway, I've been noticing how the people are able to do so much more once they have the weight off. Obviously I know this is the case, the smaller you are, the easier it is to do things. What I didn't realize is that while I've always known I was big, I didn't think about all that extra weight I'm carrying around on me and how bad it is for everything. Keeping that thought in mind, I've been trying to push myself a little harder in my work outs and whatnot.

Here's to another week of working hard and doing the best that I can! Hopefully I'll be seeing more results in the near future!
