Progress

I didn’t take my measurements before I started my fitness routine, but decided I would start now, because my goal is to lose many more inches.
I know at one point, in the not so distant past, my clothes were two sizes bigger than the clothes I buy now, my hips AND waist were larger than 50 inches and the scale at the doctor’s office had to be set to 250 for my weight.
Now, I’m almost out of plus size clothes (not quite, but almost, and I cannot wait)! The scale still has to be at 200, but not as near the high end.

Measurements:
Hips – 48.5 inches
Waist – 45 inches
Chest – 40 inches
Bust – 48 inches
Thighs (both) – 27.5 inches
Arm (right) – 15.5 inches
Arm (left) – 17.5 inches
Weight:
233 pounds

I’m actually very surprised my thighs are the same size, though I don’t know why considering they get equal work in the gym.
My arms are lopsided, and visibly so if you’re really looking. I had a hand injury that kept me from really working my left arm for about three and a half months. Thanks to my friend Ashley, that injury didn’t keep me out if the gym (if I’d been going it alone, I would’ve wimped out). I continued cardio workouts as usual, since I didn’t tend to need the hand for that, and modified my weight-lifting to be one-handed. So, my right arm is months further along than the poor left! I’m a lefty, so I feel the left should be skinnier and I assume they’ll even out at some point – until then I’ll get plenty of amusement at their differences.
