Measurements

I’ve been on a roller coaster when it comes to the number on the scale, and while I pay attention to the number I see at my Weight Watchers meeting, I am trying not to place so much importance on it. I’ve been fitting into smaller clothes and shopping at “regular” stores, so I suppose the number on the scale isn’t the complete authority on my size or how I feel. It affects me mentally however, when I work out at the gym, eat well and then still see a gain — regardless of how it got there or how quick it will drop.

I decided for July I would take my measurements. Well, because of a busy schedule and holiday, I haven’t gotten around to it — but Sarah from Losing Weight and Having Fun, reminded me that I hadn’t posted them yet. Thanks, Sarah!

Here they are:

Bust (with bra) 47 in.
Waist 51 1/2 in.
Hips 46 1/2 in.
Thighs 28 in.
Calf 17 in.
Arm 16 1/4 in.

I have an apple body shape, so I am really hoping to see my middle go down a few inches by the end of the month.

In other news, I decided to go back to the traditional tracking on Weight Watchers. I loved Simply Filling, but the thing I missed this week was the cut and paste factor of WW — I tried to eat as many power foods as possible ( I had a .6 loss this week at my meeting), but I was having trouble knowing when to stop or measure proper portions. Hubby and I talked and we want to go back to tracking until choosing power foods become more common, then slowly integrate the Simply Filling into our daily life. We need the discipline and tracking points helps both of us with that!

  1. well done 🙂 I will be doing a boot camp recap in the next few days, so will add mine.
    I know what you mean about the number on the scale, I have just stopped going to meetings again, and I have a new plan of action – more on that later …
