Curves update

Good news and bad news.

The bad news: according to an older woman I was stretching out with, I need to get a new sports bra. I am entirely too young, she says, to be "bouncing that much." (My apologies to my male readers... and to some of the female ones.) I honestly believe she was trying to be helpful, but it really took the wind out of my sails, after my good news... Which brings us to...

The good news: Today was my 100th workout. For this accomplishment, I received a lovely Curves key chain -- complete with itty-bitty flashlight. I also was weighed and measured today for the first time since mid-August. (I took a break from monthly weigh- and measure ins and concentrated on just doing the workouts for a few months.) Since December 11, 2006, I've lost a total of 11.25 inches. My weight is the same as it was when I started. (It's gone up and down a bit, but for now...)

My stats (12/11/06, 11/10/07, amount lost/gained):

Bust: 36.0 in. 33.0 in. -3.0 in.
Waist: 28.0 in. 26.25 in. -1.75 in.
Abdomen: 35.0 in. 36.0 in. +1.0 in.
Hips: 40.50 in. 40.0 in. -0.50 in.
Thighs: 23.0 in. 21.0 in. -4.0 in. (two inches per arm)
Arms: 11.0 in. 9.5 in. -3.0 in. (1.5 inches per arm)
Weight: 135.0 lb 135.0 lb -0.0 lb
Body Fat% 31.40% 31.30% -0.10%

So I'll try to focus on the positive. 11.25 inches is a LOT. And think how much worse the bouncing would be if I still had the extra 3 inches in my bust. :)

Exactly why was she watching you bounce? Seriously. You're bouncing is your business. Or something.

Congrats on the inches!

Thanks, Sarah.

I think what bothered me most is that I'm not supposed to have to worry about things like that at all-girls Curves. You know?
