I had my BF take these yesterday, and they turned out a lot better than the first ones... I think we finally got the hang of the whole phone-pic-taking thing. lol Again, sorry for the poor quality of the "before" pics, but even I can see a definite difference! I had to buy new undies 'cuz the old ones just don't fit or look right anymore. :P lol Here they are:
Measurements 02/28/09 ... 04/18/09 (inches)
Chest: 40.5 ... 37.9
Waist: 35.0 ... 31.0
Hips: 39.1 ... 36.1
Thigh: 23.5 ... 22.1
Calf: 14.8 ... 14.2
Bicep: 11.0 ... 10.5
Yes! Yes! YES! I lost over 12 inches this round, a whopping THIRD of which was from my waist! :D :D :D
OK, back to reality. ;) I'm up a couple of pounds today... very likely holding water from the fudge sundae BF brought me yesterday. X( I'm tired of telling him to stop bringing me sweet treats, and I feel like a real meanie telling my daughter she can't stop for ice cream. I don't know if he's trying to make me happy or make me gain weight back because of an insecurity issue or if he truly just doesn't think about it, since he's been lean his whole life. Any way you look at it, it's up to me to say no.
I will try for a steak day today. The egg day didn't happen on Friday, so I think a correction day will work to get me back within range.
Dusty Rose - I really do love the HTA community. They're great people! The site is also undergoing a lot of construction right now, so please don't give up. You do have to post a certain number of times before joining the Boot Camp group... Biz is the Boss over there, so if you want to - she'd be the one to go to with questions. Otherwise, if it's something specific, I'd be happy to help!
