My world is expanding as my butt is shrinking!

Shrinkage: I’ve Lost 9.5 Inches Since March!

I know I should take my measurements each month. But I have to admit I love the big dramatic drops when I wait 3-4 months before breaking out the measuring tape. I’ve lot 9.5 inches since mid March!

That’s the great news. The awesome news is that despite my 4-month plateau, my body was still changing for the better. The not so good news is that despite 2 years of building good, healthy habits, I allowed that blasted scale set the rules of engagement. During my plateau I paid too much attention to those stubborn scale readings. I know better than that…Ugh!

Lesson learned (again!). Time to move on and do better next time. Now, on to the numbers.

Total Inches Lost 7.5″ 4″ 11″ 11.5″ 11.5″

I thought I saw my most dramatic changes these last few months in my hips and thighs. Turns out I was right. I lost 3.5 inches in both areas. I continue to lose fat in my chest and saw some movement in my arms too. Nothing happened with my waist these last few months.

Perhaps a 30-day core challenge is in my future!
