Well, I learned something very important this week:

I need to wear the same clothes each week to the “weigh-in” at the Jenny Craig Center.   According to my home scale, I lost 2.75 lbs.  According to Jenny Craig scale, I gained 8/10 of a pound.  This week was the first time I’ve worn “work clothes” to the weigh-in.  The previous three weeks, I wore my “work out” clothes which consists of a light weight shirt and warm up pants, those little half socks, and briefs.  My work clothes were heavy cotton “docker” style pants with a built in expando-stretchy thingie that allows the waist of the pants to stretch out an extra four inches, a thick belt, full length socks, cotton polo style shirt briefs.  By my calculations, the work clothes are at least two pounds heavier than my workout clothes.  So…from now on, I’ll take a set of workout clothes with me to work and change before heading over to the Jenny Craig Center.

At home, I weigh once in the morning and once in the evening and then average the two numbers.  I weigh both times in the nude.  The AM weigh-in is after breakfast and after my shower but before I get dressed for the day.  The PM weigh in is after getting home from either work and/or dance practice but before I eat dinner.

Yay Me!!  By the World Championships in Jan 2011, I will definitely be wearing that “skinny shirt”!!!

Here are my numbers for this week:

Ok, I have two weights.  One from Jenny Craig which is with “clothes on” and the second which I do at home which is “clothes off”.  This is done in the privacy of my bathroom with the door locked and with me not looking in the mirror!

Yeppers, I know the thought of me on a scale with no clothes is an image that you’d probably not have wanted to visualize!  Now it is stuck in your head the whole day!    Think of it as “appetite control!”  LOL

The “clothes off” done at home is what I will use as my “official” number.  Drum roll please….

Yay Me!

See ya on the dance floor!

A Man’s Waistline(s)


Once upon a time, I used to have a 28″ waist. Of course that was waaaaaaaay back in my high school days. Now my waistline is considerably larger than 28″ inches. In fact I refuse to divulge it until I’ve lost a few of those inches! So there!

But since we’re talking about waist lines, it is not widely known, but there are actually three waist lines on a man who is out of shape…

A Man's Waistlines ©Waistline No. 1 — Pants size

This is the waist size of the pants which a man wears. However, as anyone who has ever bought pants for their husband, boyfriend or significant other knows, the inches listed on the label bear no relation to what the man’s actual waist size may be, especially if he has *ahem* a “well rounded figure.”

Indeed if he suffers from Dunlap’s Disease, where his belly dun lapped over his pants, the pants size may be significantly smaller than his actual waist.
