Weight - 12st 2lbs - A loss of 1/2lb since last week making 6 1/2lbs loss total.
Body fat - 38% - Another 1% down making 2% loss total.
Another 1in lost over chest, waist and hips making 4in lost in total.
Now for talking some sense into myself.
Only losing 1/2lb isn't so bad really seeing as TOM is here for a visit.
Losing another 1% from body fat is marvellous. Probably even more important than losing weight is getting that number lower.
The inch loss is really good too. For the only time I have been combining regular exercise with healthier eating and it is clearly working.
As it has been a month I have also measured bicep, thigh and calf. I have only measured on the left side for these. I have to say, Jillian Michaels has certainly come up with an effective workout in 30 day shred. I have been doing that for just over 2 weeks now.
Left bicep - 12 7/8in - loss of 3/8in.
Left thigh - 23 7/8in - loss of 1in. I am particularly chuffed with this.
Left calf - 15 3/8in - loss of 3/8in.
As I say I am really pleased with the loss from my thighs. My legs are the part of my body that I really don't like. They are short and stumpy. I can't do anything about the length ,short of medieval stretching instruments (and I'm not that desperate) but I can make them smaller. I live in jeans. In the last 10 years I have worn a dress twice, my wedding day and my brothers wedding day. I don't do skirts and dresses but maybe, just maybe by the time Jillian has finished with me I might feel more comfortable about doing so.
The motivation side of things is a little lacking. I am having to try really hard to remind myself why I am making the changes I have and to stick with it. It's very up and down at the moment. I don't know if it is because of TOM or if it's something else. I am going to stick with this though. Like I say in my about me box 'I am in charge', hormones aren't going to derail me. I really want to see the back of 12st anything. It doesn't suit me! :oD
