I'm not sure when I last posted about my measurements, but I thought I would take them again and see if there were any changes. I only took my measurements once I had stopped losing weight and had been maintaining for a while--around mid December was the last time I took them. These are maintenance changes we are talking about here--so every inch means more muscle and less fat!
Arm--10.5 inches (-1 inch total)
Bust--34.75 inches (-75 inch)
Waist--28.5 inches (-1 inch)
Hips--33.5 inches (-1.5 inch)
Butt--36.5 inches (-5. inch)
Thigh--20 inches (same)
Total loss of inches= 3.75 inches lost
This encourages me because it means that the body continues its changes after we hit our goal weight. I know that these losses are not huge (I did not expect them to be!) but it's only been a little over a month...so there is still room for improvement. Oh, and by the way, I'm not surprised that the thigh measurement didn't budge one bit--they are probably the most in shape part of my body due to many hours on my recumbent bike. I'd really like to see more improvement on my tummy but I know this is a bit of an uphill battle because of my beautiful babies and the subsequent damage to the abdominal muscles. I think I'll through some ball workouts and pilates into the mix and see if that helps.
