Have you missed me? I’ve been so busy, I’ve hardly had a second to think! It’s been a weird couple of weeks on WW for me, because I’ve been doing the T-Tapp Boot Camp, and she doesn’t recommend that you diet during that. So, I’ve eaten whatever and haven’t counted points. It’s been weird. I have gained weight, but she also says that will happen- between 5-7 pounds of muscle the first 2 weeks. I’m not concerned. Know why? Because she tells you to take measurements and focus on the inches lost instead of the scale. And, while I’m watching the scale…… go up…. I’m focused on the inches, and I also went down a size this week in my jeans------ TO A SIZE 12!!!! Yeah… Speaking of focusing on the inches, I measure again tomorrow, but the first week (which was actually only 4 days because I didn’t measure until 3 days in) I lost a total of 8 1/2 inches! Curious where they came from?
|Area to Measure||Starting Measurement||Week |
|Up Thigh -R||28||28||-|
|Up Thigh –L||28||28||-|
|Low Thigh -R||21||21||-|
|Low Thigh –L||21.5||21||.5|
|Calves – L||17||16||1|
|Upper Arm R||14.5||13||1.5|
|Upper Arm L||14.5||14||.5|
I’m eager to measure again tomorrow! I finish up the boot camp Wednesday (missed a day this weekend because I was sick) and then I move to every other day on the work out. It will actually be weird to not do it everyday! I mean, really, it’s only 15 minutes, so it isn’t really a big deal to do I’ll also resume counting points on Thursday, having finished the boot camp. I’m staying focused on the inches right now, so I’m not real concerned with the scale…. I do, however, believe that I still need to watch what I eat, because I know I am a person who responds negatively to too much sugar/starch and who has some problems with mindless and/or emotional eating. I need to deal with this as well as getting my body in healthy shape.
