100 lb. Club - Not exercising? I'll show you why you SHOULD

02-03-2009, 11:59 PM
The first time I lost weight, I exercised while losing:
Right arm: 14.5" to 13 inches
Waist: 43" inches to 42 inches
Hips: 59" to 56"
Right thigh: 32" to 30"

Total: 7.5 inches lost

This time, I haven't yet:
Right arm: 15" to 14.9"
Waist: 39.5" to 40"
Hips: 57" to 55"
Right thigh: 30.5" to 29.8

Total: 3ish inches lost (I don't feel like doing the specific math)

Both were in one month. I feel like it proves how important exercising is. Also, it's odd how most of my beginning measurements are close the same at different weights yet I could still wear some of my thinner close I wore at 214.

Thanks for posting this. It helped motivate me to start exercising. I already know how important exercising is, but this is good proof. :)

i didn't measure when i started but i wish i HAD! but i think what's even more satisfying for me is that i can SEE certain body parts shrinking! :lol:

^that. i was totally wishing that i had taken beginning measurements. i have not lost weight in almost 2 weeks, but sincerely feel that i am loosing inches by working out every day.

Bah humbug!! I don't believe it for a minute (just kidding)! I've yet to start exercising...I've increased my activity level but haven't called it "exercise". Very motivating post!

Very interesting stats...I was not going to start out exercising but I think I will now. I am trying the LA Weightloss Diet.
