Nowhere to go but down

If I'm being honest about my weight and body fat, why not my measurements too? At the very least, I won't have to search for a scribbled sticky note to see if I've made any progress.

As of 2/11:

Waist : 38in
Bust : 44in
Arms : 16.5in
Hips : 49in
Legs : 30.5in

I'm not sure what the "exact" measurement spots are, but I've always gone by the widest part. I've felt my clothes become looser, but no weight loss really. I know this is because I'm not doing a ton of fat-melting cardio, but instead getting my sweat on with muscle toning.

There's a couple DVDs that intrigue me, that promise to get my heart rate up and sweat dripping down, all in the comfort of my living room while the baby chatters in her swing. Once I get my refund check, I'm all over it.

GET IT GIRL!! :) Losing weight isn't easy... especially when you are doing it alone. I give you mad props! You gotta remember that it is a slow process and you will hit a plateau point where you have to incorporate something new into your routine. Have you ever looked at as a means for a diet plan? I like what that website has to offer. :) If you ever want any YUMMY & HEALTHY recipes let me know. I've got a few things up my sleeves. :)

Hey Christy! Yeah, it's definitely harder without a scv camp looming to motivate me. When she finally sleeps, it takes everything in me not to nap too.
