No change again this week….must be “inches month”.  But it doesn’t bother me at all.  I feel great, am not losing hair and seem to have plenty of energy as well.

Weekly weight update:

Starting Weight – 1/6/15: 218

Current Weight – 8/25/15: 170.4

Total Loss –  47.6

Something I’ve always want to do

These are my comfy pj pants…..they basically fall off of me now even with the drawstring tied as tight as it can be.  Guess I could make one leg into a cute maxi skirt? 🙂

Weekly Weigh In

A little more down.  I do seem to be losing a lot of inches lately so that’s good too!

Total Loss –  47.6

One exciting thing that happened….I ordered my Halloween costume in a Large (thinking it might be a little snug) and it was too big…..had to return it for a Medium.  A Medium!!  Cool!

One funny thing….on the way to church on Sunday my mom looked at my hand and said “what’s that bump on your hand?”  She was talking about my wrist bone….apparently it’s “appearing” now.  Not as much fat around it I guess. lol!

Weekly Weigh in – another stall

Another stall has set in….seems to always happen when I get close to another set of numbers – the 160’s!  Photos show me how far I’ve some though and I found a pair of 22/24 pants I once wore….makes me feel good that I’ve come this far.  I would have never done this without the help of my “Sleevie Ray Vaughn”. 🙂

Weekly weight update:

Starting Weight – 1/6/15: 218

Total Loss –  47

Weekly Weigh In/Sugars going back down

No change this week, but I’ll take it!

Weekly weight update:

Starting Weight – 1/6/15: 218

Current Weight – 8/4/15: 171

Total Loss –  47

I’ll know for sure in September when I go back to my GP and my surgeon, but my sugars seem to be going back down.  Maybe I’m learning more of a balance.  My fasting sugar this morning was 113, yesterday it was 106.  Totally in the normal range!  Fasting is usually my highest reading of the day too.
