To be honest I was a little nervous about the measurements. I wondered how I would feel if they showed I had not lost any inches…or just a few. I have been working *so* hard I expected huge losses. Let me just say I was *not* disappointed.
I had taken four measurements myself when I first started (within a week of starting anyway). Here are *my* initial measurements:
Arms (biceps) = 18.5″
Thighs = 37″
Calves = 20.5″
Waist = 52″
Of course, when the gym did their measurements they included more:
Bust = 54.5″
Shoulders = 54″
Hips = 58.75″
So, are you ready to see the craziness that is my *recent* measurements? Really?
Biceps = (R 17.75″ / L 16.75″)
Bust = 52.25″
Shoulders = 52.75″
Waist = 41.25″
Hips = 57.5″
Thighs = (R 29″ / L 27.25″)
Calves = 18″
That is a *total* of 40.75″ – which I think is just amazing. Really. I thought I was going to squeak out loud in the middle of the gym.
Additionally, she evaluated how I am doing on the weights:
Leg press = 360 lbs. (10 reps)
Chest press = 170 lbs. (10 reps)
59 crunches in 60 seconds
Flexibility = 4.5″ past my feet
All of these numbers show serious improvement as well, so (needless to say) I am very excited! Of course, tomorrow is weigh day, so at this moment I am a little anxious too. I wonder if I will ever get past that apprehension?
