Measurements from start of the fast

Okay so I bit the bullet and took measurements....resisting the urge to throw up or punch myself in the face (I have serious body issues I'm working on) I decided to come here and write them down instead, knowing that if I stick to the fast for 40 days I will hopefully see these numbers change, and my body will become what I want it to be. I have to say, it is actually quite freeing to finally know just how bad things are...it feels like I'm really taking a step in the right direction and I feel some control. I plan to take measurements every week and hopefully they will go down by the end :) here they are:
Waist: 32 inches 81.3 cm
Hips (like actual hips, above butt- I guess more like stomach): 38.5 inches 97.8 cm
Thigh (upper/at biggest part): 25 inches 63.5 cm
Arm: 12.5 inches 31.8 cm
Neck: 13.5 inches 34.3 cm
I am 5'9 and have a naturally "bigger boned" body (and no, that is not just a euphemism or excuse for "fat," I just am a bigger build)
For fun I went and looked up body measurements of different celebrities (how would they know, right? ha) to get an idea of what size it is that looks so good- the average waist size I saw was about 24-25...seriously!?!?!?! I'm shooting for more like 27 at my ideal.
We shall see, we shall see. Hopefully this works and I feel and look better in the end! So far today I've had about 4 cups of juice. I have a WICKED headache right now and don't know if it's from the fast. I don't think it is, I think it's just from having to do lots of reading for school. I can already foresee that I am going to want to take lots of naps during this...
