S/C/G: 141.8/136.6/110?

Height: 5'4

Default Inches

How many inches do y'all usually lose in a month? I lost 4.75 inches in a month which I'm proud of-but I didn't lose most of it where I wanted to. I wanted to lose in my arms and around my stomach in the belly button area. But, I lost in my butt and thighs. Do you think it has to do with your body shape? I know I'm pear shaped. I've just been working so hard on my belly. Anywho-how many inches do y'all usually lose?

There's not much you can do about where you lose from. In general, it comes off first where it went on last.

First mini-goal: 5% - 209 - Met 04/29/11
Second mini-goal: 10% - 198 - Met 6/27/11
Third mini-goal: 15% - 187

I think it's hard to say how many one loses in a month since people measure differently and also do different numbers of measurements. I can say that I am losing most around my waist which is nice since that is a place fat is less healthy to carry. I've been losing around an 1.5" a month there. (Though I should add, I'm not losing very quickly. About 6 lbs a month.)

I'm not sure how many I lose on average in a month but you can see in my signature how many I've roughly lost since the beginning of my journey (I might have been bigger, I didn't start taking measurements right away).

BTW, where I lose measurements is totally random. I started off as a banana shape and now I'm pretty solidly a pear. I've been at my goal weight before in my life and I was an hourglass then so I'm guess my butt/thighs is next to go? Although I have PLENTY to lose in my belly still!!!

If you're an hourglass, your butt/thighs should be even with your bustline, my guess is you'll even up there first, till you're about 40-34-40/41 before you start losing in another area.

I was an hourglass until my hips disappeared. And then slowly the bust caught up to the hips. I'm currently 38-29-36 and I haven't lost any off my waist for two months
