You never really know how far you have come until you look back. Today I started to look for my measurements and I found my measurements around the time I started Spark People. It was my starting measurements for Making The Cut by Jillian Michaels. I looked at them and then looked at my measurements from September 2010 and it made me realize that while my body is not perfect (thanks to two pregnancies...one being twins) that I have really moved my body a long way. Even though I might not ever see abs through the stretched skin I should be truly proud of where I am at and how far I have come!
Starting Weight Spark People 134 now it is 115

That is a drop of 3 in BMI.
That is 27.25 inches lost.
I keep rechecking because it seems too much (there is no way that I lost 7 inches around my belly button???) but I have rechecked several times and it looks right. HOLY COW!
