Day 28

My grand totals after 4 weeks are….(drumroll please)….

6.6 lbs lost

13.25″ lost

I want that lb number to be lower, but I just can’t be upset with 13.25″ lost.  And for those of you wondering what exactly am I measuring?  My neck, shoulders, chest, both biceps, both forearms, waist, hips, both thighs, and both calves.  I chose these because sometimes my right side is a little larger than my left side, so I figured I should measure both.  Also, these are the measurements taken when I worked out at a private gym.  So I have measurements dating back to 2006 to compare to.

I just pulled that notebook out.  I worked out with a trainer several times a week from April 2005 – August 2006.  At the end of that period of time, I was the smallest I had ever been in my adult life.  I just compared my last entry in that notebook to this week’s measurements.  I am only 1.4 lbs more today BUT….(another drumroll please)….I am a total of 4.5″ SMALLER today!!!  So in my opinion, I have better results after ONE MONTH of slow carb eating and 2-3 Bar Method classes/week than I did after more than a YEAR of training (weights/cardio…even a sprint triathlon) and counting calories.

I think that spells S-U-C-C-E-S-S!!!
