I weighed in today at 164.2. That is a total weight loss for the week of -.8lbs. Boo! Well, I kind of knew it was coming because I'm on my period. So, I'll take it. Now I sort of want to fast forward to next week to see what it's going to be then. Also I'll be done with bloat, blah, cranky, blah, BLAH.
With that said, here are the numbers:
Date: 6/16/10 7/7/10
Weight: 170.8 164.2
Arm: 12.5 12 (-.5)
Bust: 40 38 (-2)
Ribs: 34.5 33 (-1.5)
Waist: 31.5 29 (-2.5)
Butt: 42 41 (-1)
Hips: 41 39.5 (-1.5)
Thigh 25 24.5 (-.5)
SO! I've lost 6.6 pounds in three weeks which means I'm right on track with the 2 pounds per week. (I lost more than 2 pounds last week so I'm safe this week.) My goal is still to hit 155 by my birthday (8/15) which means I have 5.5 weeks left. If I continue to lose 2 pounds per week, I should hit 155 by then. :)
In terms of inches, I'm down 9.5 inches in three weeks. Wild eh?

HOLY SHIT. You guys. YOU GUYS. I've lost 9.5 inches in my waist??? 9 inches in my hips! HOLY CRAP!
The thing that made me the most happy today was this:
I never thought I'd see a 29 inch waist. It's always been 30 something, y'all. SO. Even with the small loss this week (and the stretch marks, /sigh.) -- I'm feeling pretty good. Another reason to do measurements and not just weigh!
I thought I'd take a look at my waist to hip ratio. If any of you watch The Biggest Loser or You Are What You Eat, the "waist to hip" ratio is something they talk about being a big indicator of your health and how at risk you might be for various issues such as heart disease and diabetes.
Waist = 29 inches (divided by)Hip = 39.5 inches
Ratio = .73

So, I'm falling into the Low Risk category. Woo-hoo! :)
