Weigh-In Wednesday

So... this week was a little disappointing to me. Not only did I not lose any weight... but I gained .4 pounds. (less than half a pound I know but I want the scale to go DOWN... not up!)

So starting weight: 230.4
Last week: 226
Today: 226.4
But I'm not totally discouraged because my measurements all showed improvement!!

Last week: 
Arms: 14.5
Thighs: 26.5
Hips: 40
Waist: 34

Arms: 13.5 (-1)
Thighs: 25 (-1.5)
Bust: 37 ( -2.5)
Hips: 37.5 (-2.5)
Waist: 32 (-2)
That's a grand total loss of :
9.5 Inches off my total body!! I checked and double checked all of these measurements because I couldn't believe it. 
But I can definitely feel and see a difference! 

That just goes to show you that the scale is a liar. 
I personally would much rather have a difference in inches rather than pounds!
Here's what I did this past week:
I took last Wednesday off
Thursday: Hot Yoga immediately followed by RPM
Friday: Body Pump in the morning
Saturday: Body Pump in the morning
Sunday: ran 6 miles outside 
Monday: Hot Yoga in the morning and Body pump at night
Tuesday: RPM
Wednesday: Body Pump in the morning

I stayed under my 1700 calories for all days except Saturday... Saturday I royally blew it. That's why I got my butt up and rain 6 miles the next day! 

Hard work pays off people! Keep it up and the scale WILL reflect the hard work!  

Here's to hoping that next week the scale will drop!

Be sure to Link up with Erin and Alex.

  6. Good job girl! I need to measure myself too. I just dread those numbers more than I dread the scale!

    1. you do! I would have been so discouraged if I hadn't of taken my inches! 9.5 inches is a lot! last week I lost 4.4 pounds but only 3.5 inches so I'd rather lose more inches than weight :)

  7. Congrats on losing inches. Its so interesting to compare our measurements. I am 5ft4in and weigh 160. My thighs are 21 in, but my stomache is 33 and hips are 40.
