Yesterday, hubby commented that I was looking thinner. Now, that in itself is a serious NSV. He is honest to a fault and even has used the three letter f-word when I have been ten pounds lighter.
But, I looked at myself nekkid in the full length mirror, and I agreed. From the side, it's still a bit thick, but from the front, it looks like my waistline is making a come back.
So, I pull out the tape measure which I have not used for months, and see a number which is lower than the number I seem to remember, do some math to calculate my waist-to-hip raitio (insert drumroll...)
(insert fanfare!) A healthy waist-to-hip ratio (less than .80)!!!!
I have weighed as little as 129 (even a bit less) in recent years, but my waist to hip ratio was stuck in the unhealthy range. I figured it was genetics and/or age and it just wouldn't budge.
The difference this time is a combination of low carb eating and more time spent walking (I have a "walking desk" which for me is just a plank on a treadmill, and I am walking right now).
Anyway, thought I'd share the news and let those of you with surly waistlines know that there is hope!
