A new beginning...
Wednesday, January 14, 2009
Well I never thought i would be comfortable blogging but I guess its time to start what we have been talking about and getting out of our comfort zone. So here goes:
The past year has been a learning experience for me, I finally figured out that i have to learn to forgive me. In the past when i have lost weight, the first time i fall off the wagon i just gave up and went right back to the old habits that got me fat in the first place. Now i know that I'm human just like everyone else and i wont be perfect but i will continue to make healthier choices in everything that i do. Healthier food choices, healthier exercise habits and healthier relationship choices.
I have lost a total of 75 pounds since i seriously starting shedding my excess weight in January of 2008. I feel so much better, have so much more energy and can even play with my kids again. I am even starting to realize that i can be proud of what i have done and with hard work and dedication i can finally reach my weight loss goals this year. I AM SO WORTH THIS EFFORT.
I am posting my measurements for today, knowing that everyone will see them and make me even more accountable for myself in this journey.
1/14/09 : Right Upper Arm: 12 1/2"
Left Upper Arm: 12 1/2"
Bust: 42 1/4"

I have lost a total of roughly 44 inches. There are some measurements that i take now that i didn't when i first started this journey.
