When I went back to Curves last month, I knew I was basically starting over.
Monday I learned just what “starting over” means. Between my February 23 workout (when I THOUGHT I was starting over but wasn’t really) and today’s workout, I gained 6 inches and 7 pounds (a total of 13 inches/pounds gained).
When I compare my December 11, 2006, stats (before I worked out the first time) with Monday’s, the news isn’t quite as grim.
Dec. 11, 2006/August 11, 2008 (total gained or lost)
Bust: 36.0 in./34.5 in. (-1.5 in.)
Waist: 28.0 in./31.5 in. (+3.5 in.)
Abdomen: 35.0 in./38.0 in. (+3.0 in.)
Hips: 40.50 in./41.0 in. (+0.50 in.)
Thighs: 23.0 in. each/22.0 in. each (-1.0 in. each)
Arms: 11.0 in./11 in. (0 in.)
Weight: 135.0 lb/140.0 lb (+5 lb)
Body Fat% 31.40%/32.90% (+1.5%)
Actually, it’s almost as grim… 6 inches and 5 pounds gained for 11 total inches/pound gained.
I know. I know. Many people would kill to weigh what I do. Blah, blah, blah.
But I’M not used to weighing 140 pounds.
On Friday, I looked at the picture of Ed and me that a fellow Stone Mountain visitor took of us earlier that day. I could see my STOMACH through the shirt, even if you might not.
I HATE that. I don’t mean to sound pitiful, but I wanted to keep it real.
Thank you for listening.
