Great Results!

6 Aug

Had my measurements taken this morning and was really shocked (and pleasantly surprised) at the results!

I lost:

1.5cm from the chest;

.5cm from the hips;

1cm from the mid thigh; AND

a whopping 3cm from around the navel!

3cm! Dairy FTW!  I seriously think consuming more dairy has made such a difference as my loss has been a bit slow lately.  So go out now and stock up your fridge with lots of skim milk, low-fat cheese and low-fat yoghurt! Right now!  Quick, summer is coming!  Quiiiiiccccckkk!

I don’t USUALLY like to reveal my exact figures and numbers but thought I would share them with you today as I’m feeling proud as a peacock right now.  They’re VERY proud, you know.  You would be too if you had those mega awesome coloured feathers hanging off your butt!

*Measurements in centimeters

I’m losing on average 1kg a month and I’m happy with that.  That’s a good sustainable loss for the long-term.

Have a great weekend everyone!  Here’s some happy beats to get you ready for 2 days of non-working bliss!

    Awesome awesome results.
    You’ve given me new found motivation!
    I expected the weight to drop off with all the stuff I have been getting into, however it’s slow by steady, and I’ll get there in the end.
    Just got to stay positive and your blog is helping me do it!

      That is so good to hear Jodie! Keep at it – it might be slow but the end result is so worth it!

    I am so glad that I am doing this. Its nice to have people that are doing the same things, and understand that its not easy.

    • Amanda August 23, 2010 at 5:17 pm #

      No – it’s not easy. But it is the best thing you will ever do for yourself so it makes it all worth it. The highs, the lows, the plateaus, it’s all so that we can get closer to living a happy and healthy life for the rest of our lives. 🙂
