Gulp…Results

This morning, I had my assessment, and I have some great results that I promised to share…

You’ll see that I’m not publishing a link to this post on Twitter or Facebook. This is only for the record and for you die-hard followers.

I’m excited about the results, but I still have a long way to go. And although I’m taking steps to improve my health, I’m a little embarrassed at the “before” statistics.

All “before” stats were taken on 9/7/10 and “after” ones were taken this morning, 11/30/10. So without further ado:

Weight
Before: 229 lbs. (groan!)
After: 203 lbs.
Change: -26 lbs.

Waist
Before: 43 inches (ugh!)
After: 39 inches
Change: -4 inches

Hip
Before: 51 inches (baby got back!)
After: 49 inches
Change: -2 inches

Body Fat %
Before: 47.9
After: 44.8
Change: -3.1%

Body Mass Index
Before: 40.6
After: 36
Change: -4.6

Resting Heart Rate
Before: 96
After: 70
Change: -26 beats per minute

Blood Pressure
Before: 133/87
After: 120/85 (At doc’s office later in the day, it was actually 112/70)
Change: Lower!

VO2
(The maximum capacity of an individual’s body to transport and use oxygen during incremental exercise, which reflects the physical fitness of the individual.)
Before: 15.5
After: 35.5
Change: +20
Note: This is probably the one I am most proud of!
