Weight Loss Journey

As many know, I have been working for a year now to lose some weight. And I am happy to say this time it actually worked. Now I know people are not supposed to boast or be prideful but I am very proud of the progress I have made. I decided to do a little before and after. The first picture is my school picture from last September. I also included underneath it all of my measurements (before measurement/current measurement). Then obviously, the second one is my current school picture taken this September. There is quit a difference. It has been a lot of hard work and lots of discipline but it has all been worth it. I am much healthier and feel so much better about myself. My goal is 130 and although I am still 6 pounds away from that I feel very accomplished!!!

Weight : 180 / 136.5

Neck: 13 in. / 12 in.

Shoulders: 44 in. / 37 in.

Chest: 41.5 in. / 36 in

Upper Arms: 12.5 in. / 10.5 in.

Waist: 38.5 in / 34.5 in.

Hips: 44.5 in. / 36.5 in.

Thighs: 25.5 in. / 20.75 in.

Calf muscle: 16 / 14 in.

Pant size: 14 / 8-9
That is a total weight loss of 43.5 lbs. and 34.25 in. off my entire body. I continue to work on my health each day. Hopefully I will eventually reach that 130 goal.
