Update: I don't know if I measured incorrectly the first time or if this whole eating right and exercising thing is actually working, but my waist is now coming in at a 35.
As promised, here are the numbers I'm working with. (And actually...my waist measurement HAS gone down since I started a month ago. In fact, there is now actually a difference between my waist and hip measurement. As friends and family can attest, even when I was thin, I never really had a dip in my waist; I just went straight down. So the fact that there's a differential actually thrills me. I keep putting my hand on my side and feeling that inner curvature.)
Okay, enough stalling.
Waist: 36 (and remember, that's actually smaller than it was. It used to be, like, 105)
My main concern and focus, obviously, is that middle number.
So there we go. I'm putting them out there for the world to see. Be kind.
We'll see how much we can get those numbers to change in the next few months.
