The total weight loss of 40kg is not a new stat – I hit that milestone a little while ago, back in Round 2 this year, and have maintained that loss.
What is new is that I added up the total centimetres lost from my chest, waist, hips and thighs since my first measure up in Week 1 of Round 2 on 20 June 2010.
I have lost 163cm in total!!
163cm less of me!
163cm is almost my height (I am 173cm)!
163cm is taller than my mum!
163cm is 5’4′ in the old scale!
To break it down: I have lost 26cm from my chest, a whopping 42cm from my waist, 23cm from my hips and 16cm from each thigh!!
In this last round, which has been one of ups & downs and much less training than planned I still managed to lose centimetres: a total of 14cm lost in those areas PLUS I gained 2.5cm on each bicep in just the final 4 weeks! (Wish I had been measure them from the start).
Phenomenal stuff. 12WBT ROCKS!!
My waist is now under 80cm – an important marker for risk of heart disease and diabetes.
My waist to hip ratio is now in the healthy range which relates to reduced heart disease & diabetes and increased fertility.
To give the percentages:
- I have lost 40kg which is 36.5% of my starting weight.
- I have lost 27% in terms of my total measurements
- My chest is 21% smaller
- My waist is 36% smaller
- My hips are 19% smaller
- My thighs are 23% smaller
Now there is a whole lot more extraordinary packed into a body less than two-thirds the size I was before!
More awesome per kilo! More awesome per square centimetre!! HAHA!
Starting from where I started, I cannot say strongly enough that if I can achieve this, anyone can.
So – what are you waiting for?
