12th March - Check In

I thought I would check in this morning. I have been n a plateau lately and I wanted to see if I could use the motivation of checking in to spur me on.

I am loving zumba and its a hard workout - I thought it was just dancing but you can really see what they are getting at...its great so thanks to Tassy for putting us all onto that one :)

Ok heres the last stats:

Check In - 3rd March
Bust: 119cm -11cm
Waist: 116cm -17cm
Hips: 119 1/2cm -17 1/2cm
Upper Arm: 36cm -8cm
Thigh: 63 1/2cm -10 1/2cm
(minus figures are a running total.)

I have also lost 1.1kgs in the last fortnight - making my total 8.1kgs. I have put on some measurement around my thigh and bicep but that would be muscle as I have more defined muscle in that region. I have also lost another 1cm of both my hips and my waist.

Check in - 12th March
Bust: 118cm -12cm
Waist: 114cm -19cm
Hips: 119 cm -18 cm
Upper Arm: 34 1/2cm -9 1/2cm
Thigh: 34 1/2cm -12cm
(minus figures are a running total.)

So in total now I have lost 68.5 cm from around my body - thats 27 inches.

I have also lost another 1.6 kilos which makes my total now 9.7kgs all up. Thats 1st 7.4lbs or 21.4 lbs and thats in 11 1/2 weeks.

My BMI is now 37.4 instead of 40.7. That drops slowly but surely - but its still a drop of 3.3.

I am so happy with all of this and there are so many other benefits that just loosing weight. Every aspect of my life has improved and thats whats important. Mike is also doing so well - he has now lost just over 11kgs! So about 20kgs between us!


  1. hey well done Gilly, I know it is not an easy road to travel but you are really kicking it this time and I wish you all the luck, motivation and strength and self love to keep going.

  2. Woohoo girl. Way to go. Sing with me: "Zumba wakie wakie oh oh oh oh..."
