Lordy,,,, I dont know whats overcome me but I'm going to post my weight and measurments.. Yikes,, there is a knot in my stomach as I type this! But I'm hoping it will help keep me accountable and after all its just a number,, It doesnt define who I am. Here goes nothing. I will list my starting numbers and my current ones
Jan 2012 weight-246
May 2 2012 weight 215.2
I would also like to add that at my very biggest I was 300 pounds!!! This was a few years back before I lost weight the first time around. I lost 118 then. My lowest weight I have ever been in my adult life is 183 pounds. Then I got pregnant with Emma and let myself have all the foods I had deprived myself of while I was dieting and gained way to much weight with my pregnancy and just never got it back off. :(
I didnt exercise that time around either. This time is different,, my whole outlook on losing the weight is diffrent and I'm exercising at least 5 days a week so I think my outcome will be different... at least the way my body looks.. I should be more toned with the working out. My original goal this time was 175 which is still at the high end of my "healthy weight range" according to the charts. I've changed that and would really like to get down to 160 if I can.. Actually 150 but I just dont see that happening. Honestly we will just see what I look like and feel like at that time. I want to be able to maintain my weight without starving myself so I guess time will tell. 160 still sounds heavy to me but looking at pic of me at 183 I really didnt look bad! I am 5'10 so take that into consideration too.
Now for some measurements I wish we would have done these at the beginning but we didnt take them until a few weeks ago so the numbers I'm posting are only a 2 week progress
Waist 40.5 ...........38
Rt arm 12.5...........12
Lt arm 12.5 12
Rt leg 26 ............25
Lt leg 27.............26
Yes I realize that my legs are a inch different..lol,,, No clue whats up with that!
So there you have it.. Now if I can get the courage to click post you will all see these numbers. The only reason I'm doing this is because I know they will go down.
And just for fun Here is a pic of me and the family at Christmas time
