So when I started this, I said I would do it for a month and see how it went. Overall, I am SO pleased! Before I get into the details, here’s the Bottom Line:

Weight, 08/01/2011: Very Large
Weight, 09/01/2011: Very Large – 14 pounds

Waist Measurement, 08/01/2011: Immense
Waist Measuremen, 09/01/2011t: Immense – 2 inches

BMI, 08/01/2011: Astronomical
BMI, 09/01/2011: Astronomical – 2.3

Lean Mass, 08/01/2011: Not nearly enough
Lean Mass, 09/01/2011: Not nearly enough + 2.6 pounds

Which means that (in theory) I have actually lost 16.6 pounds of fat and gained 2.6 pounds of muscle.

I have also gotten stronger, slept more, and developed an appreciation for dark chocolate. In addition, my blood pressure has gone down. And I have cooked more in the last month than I had in the three months previous.

…And I lost a dress size.

I think I’ll go another month!

Thanks, everyone for your support. I’ll try to put more food and less talk on here this month!
