Chalean Extreme - Burn Phase Results

As I mentioned in a previous post I am doing ChaLean Extreme to try to help me get into shape more. I have really enjoyed doing ChaLean, moreso than any other exercise videos I have ever done! Can definitely see myself sticking with her for a long time :)

Stats when I started Chalean Extreme Burn Phase...and...after completing the Burn Phase

Weight 156.4 pounds......155.6 pounds...... -0.8 pounds
Body Fat: 37.3%......36.8%...... -0.5%

Chest: 34 inches......33.5 inches...... -0.5 inches
Bust: 42 inches......41.75 inches...... -0.25 inches
Natural Waist: 34.5 inches......34 inches...... -0.5 inches
Belly Button: 38 inches......37.5...... -0.5 inches

Total inches of change: 5.25 inches

Not a whole lot of change, but it is some. I will admit, I had hoped for a little more, but hey I will certainly take any I can get :) And I can tell I am stronger and clothes that didn't fit are now fitting and/or clothes are fitting better than they had! Note: I have lost more inches in places since starting to exercise a little more and watching my food intake, these measurements are only reflecting during the Burn Phase of ChaLean.

My weight has been up and down during this whole time, so trying to eat some more calories each day since I'm exercising more than I had been.

Now, I will admit, I do have some trouble measuring myself. I have scoliosis in my lower back (around a 40-42 degree curve) and it causes my right hip to be an inch higher than my left hip, so I have to watch where I put the measuring tape and on my right side it tends to be in a higher place than on my left when measuring my natural waist and belly button areas. My left leg tends to run bigger than my right leg.


Where I measure for certain measurements...
Chest: under the breasts
Natural Waist: where I bend when I bend to the right and to the left sides
Belly Button: around the belly button area, but the tape measure above my hip bones
Midway: the biggest part between my hips and belly button
Hips: the biggest part around that area
Upper Arms: the biggest part
Forearm: slightly below my elbows
Thighs: where they are the biggest
Knees: right above the knee bone

Saturday starts the Push Phase, so excited to see some more results! :)
