By The Numbers

I don't have anything super exciting to post today, but did want to post some stats that made me very happy and grateful this morning.

So my buckling down, earnest attempt at being a better person and living a healthier life for me began on October 13th of last year.  That's when all of this serious exercise/tracking stuff began, and I really felt that for in the first time in my life that I "got it".  For the most part I've been faithful about tracking my weight and measurements in a little notebook every week, although it's been awhile since I have done measurements.  Since the Ultimate Yogi stuff should help me tone up and lose some inches, I wanted fresh measurements so that I could compare them down the road.  I took measurements this morning and then started flipping through my notebook, and as I flipped I realized that I've come a long way.

How long you ask?  Since October 13th, 2014, I have lost 25.4 pounds, which is pretty awesome but I already knew since I record my weight weekly.  But here is the kicker, I did all the math on how many inches I've lost, and I have lost 24.5 inches total from the parts that I regularly measure.  (waist, hips, bust, upper arms, upper thighs).  I couldn't get over it, it's like, I've lost over two feet of ME.  To me it's almost more impressive than the weight and does more for my self esteem.

It's been a long road and there have been days this year that I've been pretty down, but this really boosted my spirits this morning.  That is all!

  1. That is fantastic! I need to do a serious set of measurements. In the past, I haven't seen much difference in measurements and get discouraged about doing them.

  2. Yay! Congrats! I just got caught up on all of your posts since the Great Gallivant of April. It sounds like it was amazing. Now that I'm starting to heal, I want to do All Of The Things but walking to work this morning kicked my butt. I may have to explore some yin yoga that doesn't involve the abs.
