What can you do for your body in 30 days?

Day Two: Measurements and Motivation

OK, so I’ve admitted I weigh 220 pounds. But what do those 220 pounds mean for me? I pulled out my tape measure so I’ll have something besides a scale tracking my progress, and here’s what it said:

Fell in the Mud

Good 'Ol Ouiatenon Mud.

Waist: 40″
Hips: 48″
Bust: 45″
Thigh: 31″
Bicep: 15″

They say “Clothes make the man,” or woman in this case, but do you really want to go clothes shopping and stare at yourself in that little, ill-lit mirror as you try to find SOMETHING that will make you feel good? In the summer of 2006, when I was a size 5, that was easy. Not so now.

My clothing size is about 1X right now, or 16W – 18W, but I haven’t gone shopping lately and plus sizes don’t fit me well. They hang all wrong on my pear-shaped body. I have a feeling that, if I keep walking, my clothes will start to fit better even if the scale hasn’t budged.
