A Year Later: A Few of My Before and Now #s

Thursday, August 19, 2010

Well, for the past year I've been keeping track of my measurements on a monthly basis. Here are my before and after numbers thus far (most recent measurement was on 8/12/10):

Bust:
Before - 48"
Now - 41 1/2"

Chest:
Before - 38 1/4"
Now - 34 1/2"

Waist:
Before - 39"
Now - 33"

Hips:
Before - 46 1/2"
Now - 41"

Midway (widest area between waist and hips)
Before - 48 1/2"
Now - 42 1/2"

Thighs:
Before: 29 1/2"
Now - 25.5"

When I first started I had no clue as to HOW or WHERE to measure. This is the site I ended up using to help me: www.ivillage.com/how-do-

    Karen - you can totally do the measurements on your own if you don't feel comfortable with someone else helping you emoticon
