3 months on: Woo hoo!
So, here we are. Three months down the line and I have actual results to report! The first measurement is late Dec 10, the second is today.

Weight – 58kg … 55kg
Waist – 30″ … 28″
Hips – 35.5″ … 34.5″
Chest – 34″ … 34″
Arm – 11″ … 10.5″
Thigh – 21″ … 21″
BMI – 22.2 … 21.4
So, as you can imagine, I am jolly happy! That’s a weightloss of about 6.5lbs, which puts me slap bang in the middle of my healthy weight range for my height. A noticeable improvement on my waist, which was one of the most important thing. The inch off my hips shows that my tummy all round has reduced. Best of all, I can now comfortably fit in my size 8 trousers, which was a bit of a struggle all round before.
The weird thing is that my thigh measurement hasn’t reduced. I feel like it should have done, but perhaps it is simply an exchange of fat for muscle (well, not literally) – my legs are deffo firmer, so I’ll live with it!
Going on for the next three months, I want to keep this up. Ideally, I think I’d like to get to around 8.5 stone in weight, so that would give me another 3 or 4 pounds to lose. This is important because I have quite a slight frame, so it’s important I’m slightly at the lower end of my healthy weight range. I would hope that this will give me the pretty much flat stomach I’m after and knock another inch off my thighs maybe. But overall, I want to stay fit and healthy and enjoying my classes and making friends!!
