One week ago, average weight for the week - 142.4
Today, average weight for the week - 142.1
I lost 0.3 pounds this past week.

Today is my weekly measuring day.  In the past 7 days, my measurements stayed the same.

To get back to my smallest size on June 13, 2010, I need to lose:

1/4" from my bust
3/4" from my waist
1" from my navel
1/2" from my hips

Here is what I have lost so far, since starting to lose weight in February 2009:

Neck - 13.75" to 12.5" - down 1.25"
Bicep - 11.75" to 11" - down 0.75"
Forearm - 9" - no change
Bust - 38.25" to 35.75" - down 2.5"
Midriff - 32.25" to 29.5" - down 2.75"
Waist - 31.5" to 29.5" - down 2"
Navel - 38.25" to 33" - down 5.25"
Hips - 42" to 38.75" - down 3.25"
Thigh - 24.5" to 22" - down 2.5"
Calf - 14.5" to 13.5" - down 1"

My goal is to weigh 130 pounds with 25% body fat.  In order to meet that goal, I need to lose around 19 pounds of fat and gain around 10 pounds of muscle.


  1. Rebecca I just wanted to say Thank You for being such an inspiration to me especially regarding weight loss and hormonal imbalance. I have been on my journey since Jan 2010 @ 170lbs and now I am 143 lbs. I can't tell you how frustrating it was not losing in the beginning -- but I stuck it out and followed your plan in the New Atkins book and slowly but surely I started to lose. My goal is 125 - 130lbs. Thanks so much for sharing your story!

    Take Care,


  2. Thanks, Tina! It is very frustrating when you "do" everything right and still can't really lose weight due to hormonal issues. I have been on this plateau for over a year now. It gets old. But I am better than I was before, and eating healthier, and I refuse to surrender. Keep up the good fight yourself!


  3. Hi Rebecca!

    I just found your blog via Jimmy Moore. I am 57 and began my LC healthy journey February 2009 weighing in at 181 lbs. I am 57, 5'4" and down from a starting weight of 181 to 137. I fluctuate up and down within a two - three pound range. This year has been between 136 and 139. Last year it was 137 - 140. My goal for this year is to get to a range of 134 - 137. It IS a very slow, but worthwhile, process. The benefits are too much to give up on.

    Thanks for keeping up this wonderful site!


  4. Hi, Sue! I'm glad you found the blog helpful, and your results are great! A lot better than mine! LOL! Keep up the good work!
