Measurments and Movies

I took my 5th set of measurements tonight, I try to do them every 4-6 weeks. They moved so much faster in the beginning then now :( Here are my first ones taken on 7/25 vs. today's:

Bust: 49.5 vs. 45= 4.5
Waist: 46.5 vs. 42=4.5
Hips: 55.0 vs. 45.5=
Neck: 15.5 vs. 13.5=2
Bicep: 16.5 vs. 14.5=2
Thigh: 26.5 vs. 25=1.5

All of my measurements counting both sides of my body equals -28 total inches. Not too shabby! How crazy is it think I have eliminated over 2 feet of excess inches from my body!!

On a different note have you guys seen the movie Julie & Julia? It's a true story about a woman who is bored with her life and decides to start a blog and cook her way through Julia Child's cookbook and document all her trials and tribulations through her blog. It was really cool to watch because she would talk about how many followers her blog had, and some of her blogger friends would send her different goodies in the mail. It made me smile because it reminded me of all of us!


  1. Ummm...I saw Julie and Julia the week after my surgery!!!! Imagine watching THAT movie on an all liquid diet. TORTURE!! I loved it though. Great measurements lady!!

  2. Awesome!!!

    Do measurements my way and you get even more inches off - I measure below the bust (like where your bra band is) and the tummy (about 2 inches below belly button). I was surprised to see how much I lost in that bra-band area. I like to think its a back fat measurement!

    I need to see Julie and Julia!

  3. Oh well done on the measurement losses. Do you know thats the one thing I DIDN'T do when banded - what a nutcase. So I have no idea how mine are.. but I'm smaller I know that much lol. Congrats on your great losses so far!!!
