Weightloss update in pictures

 
I'm so sorry I don't post as often as I ought to. The thing is, school started and since this is my final semester (if I don't completely fail or something) before I go on to become a bonafide nurse, school is HARD and there is no extra time to spare but I will give it my best try because I do love blogging.
Okay, to my 2 month weight loss/healthy lifestyle review ranging from November 2011 to January 2012. These are the numbers:
    Metrics
    November 2011
    January 2012
    Weight
    180lbs
    173lbs
    Waist
    37” (might have measured too low)
    31”
    Lower Abdomen
    38”
    35”
    Hips
    44.25”
    42.5”
    Thigh (L)
    26”
    24”
    Arm (L)
    13”
    12.5”
    BMI
    29
    27.9
Summary:
Weight loss: 7lbs
Several inches lost
BMI is down
 
So, even though, I am not where I want to be i.e. 1.5lb loss a week, the scale is not the only measurement of success. I feel better, I dropped one clothing size, I look better, I'm happier and I have greater physical abilities. It is all these factors combined that makes a success. Here is to a new month and continued success. Stay tuned for a post on how my 28 days workout challenge worked out and what I plan to do differently in the next month.
How is everyone else doing?

  1. Hi, I discovered your blog and are in the same boat as you. I am also on a weight loss challenge, I am natural trying to grow my fine hair to longer lengths, and also a nursing student!
