Day 4: Weight and Measurements

I probably should have done this on day 1, but I don’t always have time to stop and measure the circumference of various body parts for the sake of record keeping. However, I do want to keep score of the changes in my body and I want something measurable to validate all the efforts I am putting into my Keto diet. I had initially weighed myself on day 1 and I weighed in at 188.6 lbs (first thing in the morning). Today, it the mid afternoon, I weighed 185.2 lbs. That’s a 3.4 lbs drop!

Yes I know! Most of this is water weight as I was not yet in ketosis. Although tonight I know I am in ketosis. For starters it’s 10:15 pm and I am WIDE awake. I usually zonk out at 9-ish. I also have Keto breath (yuck and yay all at once). And I’m not hungry. Really and seriously, not hungry. I skipped lunch all together today. Not because I was trying to or because I wanted to, but because the urge to eat didn’t hit me at all today. I made myself have dinner to be sure I don’t go too long through the night without food. I am all for intermittent fasting, but I’m used to 16 hours, not more. I am not quite ready to deviate from that too much.

Now for the big moment. My before measurements:

  • Weight: 185.2 lbs
  • Body Fat: 39.8%
  • Neck: 14″
  • Chest (Under the arms and above the breasts): 41.5″
  • Bust (the nipple line): 43″
  • Waist (the natural waist line): 38″
  • Abdomen (halfway between the navel and pubic bone): 41″
  • Hips (the widest part): 46.5″
  • Right Thigh (largest part) : 26.5″
  • Left Thigh (largest part): 26.25″
  • Right Calf (largest part): 16.5″
  • Left Calft (largest part): 16.75″
  • Right Arm (around mid biceps): 12″
  • Left Arm (around mid biceps): 12.25″

There you have it! The starting reference. Can’t wait to see how it changes and how quickly too. I will do my best to get some before pictures taken tomorrow.

May Baydoun did all the “right” things and followed all the “right” steps. But she knew deep down that there was more to life than getting an education, getting married, having children... There had to be more than just the cards you are dealt. Watching her children play, she overheard her daughter saying “... just like mommy”. The sudden realization that her children, her daughters especially, would grow up to be just like mommy frightened her deeply. She was the role model of what a woman can be in this life and at that time, May wasn’t satisfied with who she was nor what she stood for. She was nothing more than her mother had shown her to be... A woman in her thirties, married with young children putting her dreams and ambitions on a permanent hold to raise a family. In that moment, she fully understood that she could not expect her children to become more or better than she was willing to be herself. It was a harsh reality check; and in that moment, she made the decision she would become the best version of herself she could be because she HAD to be the best possible role model for her children. That powerful decision, her awakening, meant that she could no longer accept the average life she had led up until that point. She set out on a wild journey of deep self-discovery. Not only of who she was, but who she wanted to be and how to become that woman who had that life. Along the way, she made the discovery of the law of attraction and suddenly her whole life made sense. The good luck... The bad luck... The past decade of her life. It all made sense. She had created it all. And if she could create it, then she could dis-create it and re-create something new. She began testing the theory and in no time was proven right. Fully trusting the Universe, she allowed herself to be led on the journey. She has had the beautiful blessing of learning from so many great thought leaders and piecing together the many pieces of life’s intriguing puzzle. Over a decade later, she has discovered her life purpose, and is living it fully. Now that the student has become a master, she teaches others the principles that have led to her radical life transformation and how they too can leverage (or hack) the Universe to get anything they want... without breaking any of the laws!
