I went back and revisited my food/weight loss diary from 2 years ago.  In December 2010(the last recorded measurements) I had the following figures:
date – weight in kgs – bust – waist – hips – upper arm – thigh – base of neck – calf (measurements in cms)
05/12/2010 – 121 kgs – 145 – 130 – 145 – 43 – 71.5 – 47 – 39
01/01/2012 – 112 kgs – 131 – 119 – 136 – 39 – 68.5 – 43 – 39.5
So I have lost 9 kgs and 44.5cm!  I’m really pleased with the loss of 4cm from the upper arms – I am working hard on them to try and muscle the flabby old things!  I don’t mind the calf measurement increasing, I’m doing so much kicking at the pool I reckon they’d have to!
And I have dropped a dress size since the August restart (120kgs), plus I can now walk upstairs like a normal person instead of clutching the hand rail for grim death and gasping my way up!  And my BP this morning was 124/80 pulse 68 – I’m very happy with those numbers.
