Plus, when they did my BCA (I think that's what it is), I've come down 2% in fat...and that makes me feel good. I've lost over 18 inches...5 from my waist, over 5 from my hips. Just this week, I lost 1.75 inches in each thigh!

So, I'm sorry for my "slow and steady" comment. It honestly was in reference to "slow and steady wins the race"...meaning, if I just keep going and stay on plan, I will get to my goal. It's not going to happen overnight. I still have a ways to go...but I WILL get there.
I was told that losing more inches than pounds means more fat burned and muscle saved, so way to go!!

I am on my 13th week. The first 12 total is 30 pounds and 24 inches, which I am very amazed with. I think last 10 will probably be hard work.
