Tale of the Tape

Now that I've managed to reach another mile marker on my journey. I decided to move off the scale this time and check the measuring device so many diet and exercise gurus claim is the most important. So, here it is...

The Tale-Tale-Tale of the Tape-Tape-Tape...
 (Imagine, like I do, trumpets and a booming voice with lots of reverb heralding this announcement.)

My Body Measurements from Start 1/6/12 to Current 11/12/12 - Gulp!

Waist from 50" to 39.5"
What?!? I've lost a total of 10.5 inches off my waist! I bought a new belt when I hit size 18 a few months ago. As of today, I need to either add another hole or buy a smaller belt.

Hips 52" to 44.5"
Total loss of 7.5 inches. Oh, yeah! It's time for some new jeans, too. Size 14!!!

Chest 53" to 42.5"
This one's a bit sad, especially for my hubby, but at least the girls won't bounce as much when I work out. Hey, maybe I can even workout without a bra! Ugh... nope. I tried that last night. Ouch!

Neck 17" to 14.5"
Still not a pencil neck, but at least I have one less chin.

And finally, this... this is what my doctor was amped about the last time I saw her.

Are you ready?

BMI 46.8 to 32
I am leaving obese and approaching the overweight category on the body mass indicator chart. I can't wait to be overweight!!!! Um, wait...
