I would be lying if I said I wasn’t disappointed with the numbers this month.  It is one of those months that I have to look at the cumulative results and be pleased with what I have done “thus far.”  I mean, I lost less than three inches since the last measurements post.  BUT, I’ve carved off nearly forty inches since I started tracking inches in March.  I lost only three pounds in the last month, BUT I’ve lost 57 pounds in seven months. 

Did you notice that my BFI dropped below 30?  Hello!  That measurement makes me want to dance.  Seriously, dance!

Of course, I won’t be dancing with my bum knee right now, but I have been LONGING for the day that my body fat percentage dropped below 30!  Remember, in April in my Mamavation post, I mentioned that my BFI was 38% on March 22nd? SAY WHAT? Indeed, in four months, I lost 8.2% of body FAT! 

That does my heart good.  Literally.

So, while I am mildly disappointed with my monthly totals, I am positively thrilled with the cumulative numbers!  And, August can be a better month!
