    New Measurements

    Took pix and measurements today for progress tracking.

    Still dont like my pix....sigh. When I look in the mirror I like what I see and I can see muscle definition and that Ive lost - when I look at my pix - bleah.

    Anyway - lets focus on the positives shall we?

    Since my last measurements and pix in Jan. 2012, I upped my bodyweight workouts to 3x a week and interval training to 2x a week.

    Todays measurements show:

    I gained .5 in in bicep
    Lost 2" in waist
    Lost 1.5" in hip

    Nice Shanster! Sometimes it feels good to put a number on your progress.
    Regarding pictures- it's all in the lighting and the camera angle! A camera tilted just wrong can really make a great body look unbalanced. Don't let it get to you! You're doing awesome.
    You don't have to be sick to get better.

    Nice Job Shanster!

    I'm due to take measurements too, just got over TOM so any residual bloating is gone Although monthly bloating is MUCH less since primal - love it.

    thanks guys! I appreciate the support! funny how once you reach your goal weight - Im under my goal of 160 - low was 157 but havent weighed cuz now I am focused on strength and gains. New things take on meaning that I never thought muscle def - who woulda thought Id have any? or measurements or strength gains in my workout... made an appt for the Dr for my first cholesterol/blood pull since starting primal - going to discuss fractioned test for different types of LDL

    this is a pretty kick ass journey!

    congrats shanster - I am convinced I could look like a supermodel and still be displeased with my pictures.

    There's something to be said about camera angles I guess. I totally love what I see staring back in the mirror and video is actually pretty great too. darn camera!
