Well friends, we are now officially OVER HALFWAY through this challenge!! It's time for some data to mark the progress made thus far. I took measurements on my first day of the challenge, and on day 10. Check the stats!!!
Weight 225.0 lbs. 215.4 lbs.
R. Arm 15.5 in. 15.0 in.
Chest 45.5 in. 44.0 in.
Waist 43.0 in. 43.0 in.
Hips 46.75 in. 44.5 in.
Butt 49.25 in. 49 in.
R. Thigh 26.5 in. 26 in.
R. Calf 18.7 in. 18.5 in.
In 10 days, I've lost 9.6 pounds and 5.2 inches! That seems insane to me. If I had known that this kind of diet would do that, I would have done this a long time ago. My only disappointment is that I haven't lost any inches in my waist. I hope this is "user error" - I'm not a professional at measuring or anything. But nonetheless, I have lost almost everywhere else. I can't focus on the negative when so much positive is going on! All I can do is keep working and trust that my hard work will pay off eventually.
I didn't get to the gym today, but I did walk to and from the bus to get to work. And I took my usual lunchtime walk. You do what you can each day!
