I measured again and I'm back down to what I originally wrote down for my waist.....so I don't think I gained inches I think I read the tape measure wrong.
So I've lost 16 pounds. I went to the gym twice this week. rode my pedals the rest of the week.
I did the weight machines at the gym. My wrists hurt so bad I thought I would die! My shoulders are hurting less, so I think the tendonitis is getting better.
Now that I don't have to readjust my pattern, I will cut it out today and see how it fits. Pictures will be coming.......
