Drum Roll Please....

I got measured at Curves this morning. April 1st, I set a goal for myself to lose 2 sizes and to basically fit a good workout routine and better eating into my everyday life.

I was first measured 3/30/05. I had a great first month! My 2nd month (this month) kinda sucked! I was out of town for two weeks which meant no Curves (too much work to do) and a lot of fast food! Then I fell off the wagon for about 5 days eating crap food like Taco Bell, McDonalds and eating out with the girls from work. Errrrr

So, here's what they told me this morning...

Bust: -1.75 :-( The least place I wanted to lose it!

Waist: -2.50

Abdomen: -2.75

Hips: -1.75

Thighs: -4.50 (combined -2.25 each)

Calves: -0.50 (combined -.25 each)

Arms: -.050 (combined -.25 each)

Weight: -7.60 pounds

Total Inches: -14.25

Total Body Fat Pounds: -11.03

Body Fat Percentage: -3.00% (although according to my scale at home, this is more like -6.00%)

I have lost about a size and a half. Not my goal, but close enought to keep me satisfied and for me to feel a difference in my clothes and buy 1 size smaller tops for the summer! :-)

I only drink water soda. I was pretty good at that before but have made it absolute (not absolut :-) ). I've decreased my alcohol intake...damn empty calories. The last time I had a drink was a month ago and it was a Martini..and that's it.

I get full a lot faster now! I notice I'm leaving a lot more on my plate when I do eat out, and my stomach is letting me know if I'm eating something not-so-good.

Curves gave me a travel pass so I could keep going for the next 2 weeks...and I will! My goal is not to gain any weight during my vacation. Let's see if I can do it!

Holy crap, that's GREAT! Take it off slow and easy. It's about the habit.
