I also took took measurements...
Arms: 19 1/2(R) 19(L)
Thighs: 33(R) 33 1/2(L)
Calves: 20 1/2(R) 20 1/4(L)
Upper Waist (smallest): 52 1/2
Lower Waist (at belly button): 65
Symphysis to Sternum: 32
Some of those measurements are the largest I've seen. I'm going to try to not be too hard on myself. The good thing is, in a month when I remeasure myself, it will feel really good to see the changes. My measuring tape is only 60 inches long so I hope in the next month or two I can measure without having to figure out where the end of the tape is to measure the extra space.
My Body By Vi stuff came today! I'm still waiting for a blender but I should have it the beginning of next week.
I ordered the most basic package. It comes with one bag of the shake mix and a few flavor mix in's.
It also comes with this challenge bracelet. You can move the little tab along as you lose weight. Plus I figure it serves as a visual reminder of my goals.
I'm excited to start! I plan on having one shake a day. I'm bringing in my knowledge from Take Shape For Life and will have 5 small "meals" and a lean and green. One of my small meals throughout the day will be one of these shakes. I also have been eating the Special K Protein bars and drinking the Slim Fast shakes. The nutritional facts on them were comparable to a TSFL meal. I'm still breastfeeding so I want to make sure my diet is well rounded so I'll have fruit, cheese, oatmeal and other things that I feel appropriate. I'm not following a specific plan but putting together what I think will work for me. After following TSFL and losing weight... then regaining weight... I decided I definitely need to do something that I could easily follow long term.
