I measured myself 2 weeks ago, and I have lost inches! That sure takes off some of my worry of gaining weight by working out:
Waist: now 28, lost 1 inch
Hips: 38.5, lost .5 inches
Bust: 32.5, lost .5 inches (THAT'S not where I need to lose inches!)
Arms: 11.5, lost .5 inches
Thighs: 11.5, lost .5 inches
I have lost a total of 3 inches all over my body! My dress size is still a 4, but my size 2 goal is in sight!
