Well, here goes nothing! When I first decided to make a lifestyle change and get healthier, I took my measurements. I was astonished to find out I was almost as big around as I was tall. I am not very tall, only 5'4.5". At that time weighed 270 lbs, hips were-62" and waist(after I found it) was- 49". Well today I measured myself again, and I weigh 252.5, hips are-56.5" and waist is 44.5", so I guess I really can see a difference. No one here is going to scold or belittle you for giving your measurements, but if you are not comfortable giving them out, Don't! It is up to you!

Red face Ok... here we go...

Thanks for taking the first brave step Wanttolosealot!!

I guess I will go next. So here we go:

Neck 14
Shoulders 47
Bicep 15
Forearm 11
Chest (with bra) 46
Waist 37 1/2
Hips 48 1/2
Thigh 29 (yeah, that's one)
Calf 16
All the way around 54

This is a far cry from that cute 36-26-36 body I used to have as a young teenager.

These numbers are going to go DOWN DOWN DOWN!!

I have to get rid of these humungous breasts!! (sorry dh)

hips - 43ish
waist - 39ish

Ellis girl, you are just too funny...haven't gotten to the gym yet...
I still have Friday and Saturday...today I'm too busy with work, no time to get there...meeting at 9:00am and clients until 9:00pm...tired just thinking about it.

They'll measure me there and I'll may or may not report in depending on my whim at the moment

Ellis, where are you and where is that tape measure...I never mailed you the kitchen pictures but I will get them in an envelope and post them this weekend and if you need a tape measure let me know, I'll throw one of those in too......

Love, Soozie

Hey Ellis - just get a piece of string or ribbon and a yardstick or metal tape measure.
Need more instructions?
Love
MotheRuth

And I'll post mine later today - along with an encouraging idea.

Oh my. That never occurred to me. Thank you MotherRuth. I suppose my mind is on higher things.

Now, does anyone have a piece of string?

Whose idea WAS this, anyhow?!

...it must be beside my sewing machine...
