Dot, you're a darling!

Here's my stats, these are from today. I've been measuring since June 6th, so I'll post the inch differences too.

Neck: 15.5"
Upper arm: 17.5"
Chest: 41.5" (-2.5" overall)
Waist: 42" (-2.25" overall)
Hip: 47"
Butt: 47"
Thigh: 44" (heels together, both thighs measured)

No excuse for those kind of numbers. >:-0

But, good news! My weight was down 2.8lbs from last week, so at least I'm losing, however slowly.

I usually set unattainable goals for myself and then feel bummed when i don't reach them. So, following tradition, my goal is to weigh 199lbs by Aug. 31.

I came across your blog when I noticed you had started following mine (awesome!) and I am REALLY enjoying yours. I read all your posts and you seem like you are pretty much in the same boat as I am. I love this community because it is so relieving to find others out there going through the same shit that you are :)

Awe you are so sweet hun! ; )
See! That wasn't so bad about posting the stats! Now you will really be able to notice the difference because you have something to go off of!
I never thought about measuring my thighs that way! You are a genius! Next week I'll do mine that way too
: D
You should be so proud of yourself for losing nearly 3 lbs this week!
199 might not be so unattainable, it depends on where you're starting from. 10-15 lbs a month is totally doable for myself, and I know some people who have faster metabolisms and lose even more.
When you feel ready, let me know if you want to fast and I will totally be your fasting buddy!
Stay strong <3

Thanks sadhana! I haven't quite "devoured" your posts yet, but I will!

Dot - Thanks for your comments, as usual.
