I had a few WOOHOO moments this week.

First was on Wednesday - it was my first month weigh and measure day at Curves. Get this.... I LOST A TOTAL OF 16.5 INCHES in one months time!!! I knew I had been losing inches as I moved down to a very comfortable size 8 jeans... but this was amazing! Only lost 4 lbs of scale weight... but check this out!

Bust -0.5 inches
Waist -2.25 ""
Abdomen -4.50 "" :earseek:
Hips -1.75 ""
Thighs -8.50 "" :earseek: :earseek: :bounce: :Pinkbounc
Arms +1.0 "" (getting really muscular arms!)
Weight -4.0 lbs
Body Fat -2.40 %

So that is pretty good and made my week... but then today another "woohoo" moment occurred!!

I was getting dressed for work. Casual Friday - put on my slim size 8 khaki pants, a black t-shirt, black leather loafers, and went to get my slim black leather belt to finish the outfit off... and when I put it on... it had more than 5 inches of "extra" even with it on the very last hole! It was too much to even consider adding some holes with a hole punch! :teeth:

Losing slow is not bad guys! It's about getting smaller and feeling good! :)

What wonderful results you have had. That's a very impressive reduction of inches, Laura.

I believe that you have inspired me to start weight training as well as the WATP. Thank you!

Congratulations on losing so many inches, too :)

WOW thats awesome! I am soo happy for you! But may I have a moment of complete and utter envy - SIZE 8 SLIM JEANS:earseek:
Know matter how much weight I will lose I will NEVER be a size 8 slim - my large hips will not let that happen!;)

:teeth: Thanks everyone for the encouragement. I am down a pound and a 1/2 this morning too! This really HAS been a good week! :)

I love my low carb life! Wish I had known about this from age 14 when I began my struggles with my weight.
