5lbs and 4.25 inches total lost in 4 weeks!!!
WHR: Waist(28.25) divided by Hips(38) = 0.787096774 TODAYS: 0.743421053 YAY I am movin on down! My goal still remains to get as close as possible to .70
I am inching close to having the IDEAL 10 inch difference between hips and waist! Mine is now 9.75" so only a quarter inch to go:)
Waist to Height Ratio is ideally less than .50. Mine wass: 0.46 bleh TODAYS:
0.434615385 My goal here still remains to get as close to .40 as possible, but already, this is the average olympic swimmers ratio so hey, thats something to be proud of! I am so very happy with myself for at least keeping at target with workouts.
I admit this week has been the hardest yet. The physical activity is the easy part. Hunger kills though and I blew it like BIGTIME several days this week. Its amazing how little 1500-1600 calories is each day(my goal calories). I am VERY active though on top of working out doing interval/strength training 4-5 days a week for 20-30 minutes at a time and abs EVERY single day. I walk, take the kids to the park, grocery shop and clean with a baby in the Moby many hours every day, Christmas shop, and although your jaw will probably drop that I managed to lose 2 lbs this week, keep in mind the activity. My big goal this week: STOP eating so much. Although "most" things that go in my mouth are realllly healthy, its still remains too much!
12/4- 1880 cals
12/5- 1505 cals

12/8- 2855 cals OOPS! :) lol just bein honest here
12/9- 1695 cals

So hindsight is 2020 and coincidently that is exactly what my average daily calories were ;O lol yipes~ If only I had kept my calorie count down, imagine what I would have lost this week? Oh well baby steps and at least the scale is moving in the right direction along with inches which are shrinking quick! To be honest, I am a healthy weight according to any Dr or BMI chart, however, we all have a size or weight that feels best to us. I prefer 124-127 usually, but for now I am just working more on getting my waist down to be a nice hourglass and I have no idea how low I will have to get my weight to get a really good WHR. I don't think I could or would want to get below 120, but you never know.....I just have to see how I look as I drop more lbs. I have weighed as lil as 112 after my first baby(on accident..just too busy to eat), but everyone was trying to feed me and telling me I looked sick soooo we will see.
