I've been keeping a chart of my weight loss every week for the past 19 weeks. Some weeks I did well, some- I tanked. Well, Since I'm starting the new diet- see latest post yesterday-I decided to go ahead and measure a week early. I had set it up for measuring every 20 weeks. Yes, I have short term and long term and even LONGER Term goals.
So this is week 19 of the 60 weeks I gave myself to lose this weight.
This is my weight and measure chart....as you can see it has LOTS of ups and downs on it. My Report Card. I most certainly am NOT an honor roll student by any stretch of the imagination.
But I want you to look at the measurement part. That's 4 months work. I measured myself for the first time on the last day of February 2016. The weekend after my 56th Birthday.
I started out at my heaviest of 286 lbs.(Not in Feb- this has been a several year journey.) Well, that was the highest weight I saw on the scale. I know for a fact I had lost about 20 lbs and a couple of pant sizes at that point already so my heaviest weight was just over 300 lbs. Scary stuff.
So in the last four months I have lost:
1 inch in neck
Arms remain the same( booooo!!!!!) :(
6 inches in waist!!!!
3 inches in hips
1.5 inches in thighs
.5 inch in calves
So everything I've been doing is working- even if I dont see the changes in my body myself.
I still see a fat girl in the mirror.....but the day WILL come when I see myself as I want to.
I'll continue to weigh every Saturday Morning and record the results.
And I will be measuring on the first Saturday of every month now.
Let's see if we can get this on a Fast(er) Track!!!
