Judy is now into week 5 of her personal challenge to lose the last of her baby weight and regain a feeling a confidence in her appearance.
I met with Judy on Tuesday morning to go through her new workout (which is pretty intense) and to do measurements with the tape measure, scales and calipers. She has had a rough couple of weeks personally, but despite this has made huge leaps forward, here are her numbers;
tape measure - a total loss of 10.5cm. 6 cm of which were from her waist. I think this is awesome, I am really impressed with this. She has totally lost her muffin top and I could barely pinch her stomach to do the skin fold test.
calipers - I wish we had done this at the beginning of the process as I know there will have been a huge drop in body fat. Her numbers yesterday stood at 21.86%!! again really impressive.
weight - to date Judy has lost 6.5 lbs. She really wants to see big numbers on the scales, where I am more impressed with the previous numbers.

Its interesting that she talks about peeing during particular exercises. Its a common problem for women after child-birth. I have read loads of articles of the subject and the results are always different. Kegels definitely help the problem, but it some cases it appears that stress incontinence is something that can only be fixed by surgery, depending on the severity of the problem. Has anybody else any thoughts on this?
