No April Foolin' -- Marvelous Melting Woman

It's "Measuring Up or Down Day" -- the first of the month -- and I was excited to see bigger differences this time -- and that's no April Fools joke. Haven't been losing pounds the past two or three weeks or so, but I've been losing inches like crazy.

I especially love that I've lost 5.5 inches off my rather round backside and 4 inches off my waist. My Size 18 jeans are getting too loose now -- hooray!

Jan. 20, 2012 (The first time I measured after my Dec. 27, 2011, gastric sleeve surgery.)
Bust w/bra: 43"
Waist: 43" (makes me wonder if I'm a tree trunk ... I think getting a waist back will be sublime!)
Hips: 50.5"
Neck: 16.25"
Upper right arm: 16"
Thigh: 30.25"
Right Calf: 17.75"

I remember back in the days when I had a 25-inch waist and 35-inch hips. Of course, that was in my 20s and the old lean-and-mean beauty pageant days. I have to wonder if I really want to have a 25-inch waist again. Heck, that's smaller than my thigh is right now. Kind of amazing to think about how small 25 inches is.

I was about to report on how well the MyPlate app was working on my iPhone and then parts of it stopped working: the food and exercise lists won't access and it won't let me re-sync with the server. It will let me add foods, but I'd better know the calorie count, etc., or too bad.

I've e-mailed LiveStrong about it and hopefully it will get fixed soon. I do like the app and I'm not sorry (yet) that I paid $2.99 for it. We'll see.
