Becoming the best me I can be

Measurements- 5/19/13

I decided it was time to take my measurements again. I have noticed some changes (like my face looks thinner to me) and I haven’t lost weight in the past two weeks. Weight loss hasn’t been as big of a concern for me right now as much as getting healthy and providing my daughter with the best breastmilk I can give her by eating healthy. In fact, I have been eating more (healthy food, of course) to make sure I get at least 2,000 calories for Peanut.
I am trying to take my measurement twice a month. I realized I only measured my right thigh, calf, upper arm, and forearm last time. I made sure to measure both sides this time and will continue to do so in the future. So here are my new measurements (in inches):

Bust- 47
Chest- 38.5
Waist- 42
Navel- 48.5
Hips- 50.5
R Thigh- 27.5
R Calf- 17.5
L Thigh- 28
L Calf- 18.5
R Upper Arm- 15.5
R Forearm- 12
L Upper Arm- 16.5
R Forearm- 12
Neck- 15.5
So here is what I lost/gained from my first measurements:

Bust -1/2
Chest 0
Waist 0
Navel -2
Hips -1/2
R Thigh 0
R Calf -1
L Thigh n/a
L Calf  n/a
R Up Arm -1 1/2
R Forearm 0
L Up Arm n/a
R Forearm n/a
Neck -1/2
Overall, I think I did really great for losing that amount of inches in a little over two weeks. I am really happy with the progress I’m making 🙂

  2. Doing measurements is a great idea. I keep meaning to do that, even bought the appropriate tape measuring thing, but I keep forgetting!

  3. As you know measurements are a WAY better indication than the scales – congrats on the awesome work lady!

    • Thanks! Yes, I do know they are way better. It is shocking to me to lose that amount of inches in such a short amount of time but I’m not complaining. I can already see and feel the changes my body has been making without either the scale or the measurements but it’s always motivating to have numbers to go by 🙂
