Well, I have gotten together with a few of my friends and we are having our own "Biggest Loser" competition. We are each putting in $5, then in 3 months, whoever has lost the highest percentage of weight wins all the money. I'm excited to have the extra incentives!
We had our first weigh-in tonight, so I thought I would have my first weigh-in here as well.
Here are the measurements we took (as well as a few others I took myself):
- weight: 181.5 lbs.
- waist: 41 in.
- hips: 46 in.
- bust: 41 in.
- high bust: 39 in.
- neck: 14 in.
- right arm: 14 in.
- right thigh: 28 in.
- right calf: 15 in.
Phew! Probably way more than you ever wanted to know about me, huh?
These are my before pictures:
There are 2 things that I am specifically looking forward to fitting into again. One is a dress that my mom made for me back when I was a senior in high school:
Unfortunately, I don't think the hanger does it justice. When I wear it, it fits me really well and I think it looks pretty good.
The other thing I REALLY want to fit into again is my wedding ring. When I was pregnant with my daughter, my hands swelled up and I couldn't wear my ring, so I wore it on a chain around my neck. Well, it's still hanging on that chain (see my before picture). This is how far I can fit it on:
Sheesh! I think that ring has spent more time around my neck than it has around my finger. But no more! I am going to lose the weight!!!!
What's something you'd like to fit into again?
