Get out that measuring tape...

Unless you are new, you know I have been stuck in a plateau. Since February, I have lost 10 lbs. That's not much my friends. But I realized the other day that I haven't taken my measurements in a while, so I thought I would do that. I dug up my starting measurements to compare :D

Starting 9/2012

Arms: 16in
Hips: 59.5in
Bust: 51in
Waist: 47in
Thigh: 30in
Dress size: 24

Now 6/2013

Arms: 13.5in
Hips: 53in
Bust: 46in
Waist: 41in
Thigh: 25.5in

Total lost:

Arm: -2.5in
Hips: -6.5in
Bust: -5in
Waist: -6in
Thigh: -4.5in.

So while I haven't seen a great improvement on the scale, I have lost 24.5 inches. That is two feet. Two whole feet gone from my body. THAT is insane. The scale doesn't tell the whole story. Take your measurements.

The reason I even took out the measuring tape is because I ordered some shorts online from Old Navy and I wanted to make sure they were gonna fit. They should be here today so I can't wait to wear them and take pictures :D

  4. That is awesome! The measuring tape always tells the true story. The scale lies from time to time. Good for you!

  5. Wow!! Way to go! I am sooo guilty of not doing measurements. I did measurements when I started the 24 Day Challenge, but since I really only "made it" to Day 13 or something like that, I never took measurements at the end. I may take my measurements again at the end of July after I finish C25k!

  6. Wow amazing!! I've always cared less about the scale than how I felt/looked in my clothes

  7. THATS SO AWESOME! One of my regrets with my journey, is that I never took any measurements!!!

  8. That's wonderful, Jess!!!! Great job and yes, that stinking scale is not the be all end all! So proud of you!

  9. awesome results! You've inspired me to break out a measuring tape also. I've been traking everything else religiously but I've never taken any measurements. Thanks for the reminder!

  10. That's amazing result I am definitely going to be getting my tape measure out!

  11. That's some major inchage!!! I would love that much off my hips!!!

  12. 2 whole feet! That's AMAZING! Now did you measure yourself before and after the AdvoCare Cleanse? I found I lost A LOT of inches on it.
