Weigh-in Wednesday and growing thighs?

Starting weight: 176.4 lbs.
Last Two weeks ago weight: 137.4 (major water retention from Christmas food) 
Current weigh:  133.0 
Current loss:  -4.4 
TOTAL LOSS: -43.4 lbs.

I didn't even realize a weigh-in wasn't done last week.  That's what happens when you're sick and your throat feels like a cheese grater was taken to it.

Moving on... this week I'm not surprised about my weigh-in.

A loss when you're on a diet of mostly liquids will result in the scale moving down... and it's most likely not fat but not complaining at all about the loss (YAY!).  I have been back to a normal eating routine for the last 5 days so hoping it's a true loss.  We'll have to see next week.

Yesterday at my PT session, my trainer took my measurements - something we do monthly - so we'd know where I'm starting in the new year:
  • Neck - 13.5"
  • Chest - 36.0"
  • Right bicep - 12.5"
  • Right forearm - 9.75"
  • Waist - 30.75"
  • Navel line - 31.75"
  • Hip - 40.0"
  • Right upper thigh - 23.75"
  • Right calf - 14.0"
See my thigh measurement? It's up from last month (almost an inch more) and he's convinced that the running and my lower body workouts (which consist of heavy barbell squats/deadlifts and plyo work) have to do with it... in other words, muscle!!  He and I are not worried about the gain, in fact I'm thrilled if it is muscle, but I just found it super interesting that it was such a huge difference.  We'll take thigh measurements next week just to compare yesterday's results.

All said and done, lots of work to still do!
