Yesterday I capped off my personal-best 2-mile time (28.29 minutes) with a second visit to the back room of the gym where they do your measurements. I didn't actually have them measure me again, because eww - I didn't even want to touch or smell myself at that point, but I wanted to do the little video game where you squeeze the machine and it tells you your body fat percent. It's still high - well above obese high - but it is 4.7 percentage points lower than it was when I started.
Also, I asked them last week for a copy of my original measurements form and never got around to taking comparison measurements. But I happen to have a tape measure here, so let's see where we are:
Chest (assuming that was an above-the-boob measurement): -3"
Thigh: no G.D. change!
Body Fat Percentage: -4.7
Well, I guess the thigh and bicep measurements explain why I'm still for the most part fitting in my existing clothes. Still, even if I'm only 15 pounds lighter (ok, 13.5 - I ate A LOT last weekend with Jackie) I'm still really happy with most of these numbers.
...aaaaand I see where I need to work. I don't understand how running 6 or more miles every week could not shrink my thighs, but I'll be looking for something that will!
