Progress report: 3 months in and 20 lbs down!

So, I have a long way left to go, but I thought I'd be brave and show what 3 months of tracking and working out can accomplish.

3 months ago I'd cry when looking in the mirror. I felt helpless, and I was *this* close to ordering some gimmicky crash diet just to finally shift the scale a little. I was 5 months postpartum and hadn't lost more than 2 lbs of the pregnancy weight that was lingering, despite going to the gym 3-5 times a week.

Tracking has changed all of that! I feel like I can accomplish anything if given enough time.



Starting measurements (Nov 12/2012):
Weight - 162
Waist - 34.5
Abdomen - 42
Hips - 45
Thigh - 26.5
Calf - 16.5
Upper Arm - 14
Body Fat percentage - 45.8%
BMI -31.6
Pant size: 14

Most recent progress (Feb 11/13):
Weight: 141.6
Waist: 31.75
Hips: 42.25
Thigh: 24.5
Calf: 15.5
Upper Arm: 13.5
Body Fat percentage: 39.9%
BMI: 27.7
Pant size: 10

So, slowly but surely I'm getting somewhere! And part of believing in myself is not being embarrassed of myself - my body isn't perfect, but it is getting better every day.
