Weekly Weigh In

Once again, no change this week (but no gain either!)

No change today….

Weekly weight update:

Starting Weight – 1/6/15: 218

Current Weight – 9/29/15: 167

Total Loss –  51

This puts things into perspective for me this morning though.  Lets me see how far I’ve come!  Size 18 to size 10!  At my highest weight I was wearing a size 22, but don’t have any of those jeans anymore.

Started Therapy last week for my shoulder….apparently I have a frozen shoulder.  I think the stretches are helping my range of motion but I’ll be happy when I can pick up weights again and get back to work on the bat wings! 🙂

keep on

Weekly Weigh In

Lost a little bit more as of today!

Weekly weight update:

Starting Weight – 1/6/15: 218

Current Weight – 9/15/15: 167

Total Loss –  51

Saw my surgeon last week and my GP this morning and both are very happy with my progress.  My BMI has dropped to 27 and I hope to get out of the “overweight” category in the next few months.  I asked my GP to find my highest recorded weight in her records and it was 251 in 2005.  So from my highest weight I’ve now lost 84 pounds!!

Boyfriend Jeans

Never thought I’d be able to wear a cute pair of boyfriend jeans, but yesterday I got a size 30 (AKA size 10!!!!) pair of Levis boyfriend jeans!  Size 10 and they zipped up and I can sit in them! (have them on today)  Thank you so much, Sleevie Ray Vaughan!

Weekly Weigh In – Saw Dr. Taylor this afternoon

Finally hit the 50 pounds lost mark!

Weekly weight update:

Starting Weight – 1/6/15: 218

Current Weight – 9/8/15: 167.4

Total Loss –  50.6

Was so excited to step on the scale this morning (I weigh first thing in the morning – with nothing on) and see 167.4!  I knew that I had my appointment with Dr. Taylor this afternoon so was hoping it wouldn’t be too much higher with my clothes on in the afternoon but it was exactly 168 on his scale so I was happy!  🙂  My A1C went back down to 6.3….still needs to go down a bit but it was improved from last time.  All my other numbers were great…..vitamins etc…  He was quite happy and in turn, so was I!
