This week when I posted my 50 Pounds Gone Again update pictures, I started to wonder how my body measurements have changed over the past year since my last photos. Fourteen months ago, I weighed 243 pounds. I gained a few pounds between then and last January before starting to lose again, but the net difference in the photos is 15 pounds. So what about measurements and size? Well, I measured today and compared the numbers now (228) to the numbers then (243). Along with those 15 pounds, I've lost
1/4" off my neck
1" off each ankle
1/2" off each calf
3/4" off each thigh
1" off each upper arm
1.25" off my bust
3.75" off my hips
and 4" off my waist!
That's pretty good progress! No wonder I feel better and fit into my clothes better.
I'm pleased with how things are going, even if slowly. Now to get those next ten pounds off!
I am 38 years old, female, a degree-holding stay-at-home-mom, and I weigh 278 pounds. I have been obese for ten years now. Time to get out of this fat prison I have made for myself.
--This is the original introduction I wrote when I first started this blog in 2007. I leave it as a reminder to myself of where I came from. Currently, I am 46 years old and weigh significantly less...see the blog for details. I lost 103 pounds, then had a partial regain, and am once again working at weight loss and better health.
