I finally found a private moment to update those measurements. I always complain that my hips don't seem to shrink much, but wow ... those little bits, lost here and there, really do add up eventually. I've lost 7" (albeit slowly) from the hips - total - and 8" off my waist.
I'll be back into my normal routine on Wednesday, and am looking forward to visiting and catching up on all the blogs. Thank you to all who've left comments, well wishes and thoughts of support and encouragement!
I gave Anne fair warning that I'll be needing her help in posting an updated photo, when I reach this next goal (10 lbs from now). I so appreciate her expertise ...
I got in some more walking yesterday, but nothing today, unfortunately. I've been playing tourist guide, and today was a lot of driving. For those within driving distance of the NC mountains, the company LOVED the views from atop Chimney Rock. Pretty views from Lake Lure too, looking up the Gorge. I love taking people up there for the first time. Fun reactions!
Today, I had a very strong craving for something sweet ... I mean a STRONG craving .. chocolate would be nice. LOL No, I didn't act on it, but I thought about it mightily for a while there. Sometimes, dieting is not as much fun as other times ... and this is what prompted me to take updated measurements today. Helped to knock that craving right out of my head. I don't want to add ANYTHING back to the hips. LOL
Ah, the guests are walking back inside, so I need to sign off. Just wanted to update those measurements before I forgot (or was lured by thoughts of chocolate). Hey, whatever works, right? :D
