Lost 2.75 inches total for the month. Bummer. I feel like I worked way harder this month on form and did more difficult and longer workouts. Granted, I didn't eat as clean as I would've liked, and I feel like I'm retaining water. Anyway, that brings my total inches lost thus far to 29.25. Here's some pics.
And some side-by-sides from December to now: You can click to enlarge.
Here's where the inches have melted away:
Arms: .75 in each
Pecs: 2 in
Bust: 2 in
Ribs: 2 in
Waist: 2 in
Abs: 1.75 in
Hips: 3.25 in
Upper Thighs: 1.50 in ea
Lower Thighs: 1.50 in ea
Calves: .25 in ea
Discouraged, but not giving up. I'd love to see more loss in my abs, thighs and arms at this point. Most of the loss is in my upper body, and that doesn't translate to smaller pant sizes. In three months I've only gone down about a size and a half in pants. Tops are looser, except in my arms. So I haven't really bought any smaller clothes yet. I still feel tired a lot even with the inch loss and increased stamina during workouts. My doctor's appointment is scheduled for mid-April, and I'll be interested to know what the numbers say.
Thanks for your support. A hard day. Maybe I'll go to measuring and taking pics every two months....
