Total Weight Loss

Saturday Scale Says

This morning the scale read 168, up .6 from yesterday.  My body is establishing a pattern of jumping up on Saturday mornings.  I thought maybe it was just keeping me humble knowing that I post my weight for the world to see each Saturday.  I'm beginning to wonder if I should cut back on that last chance workout (always looking for an excuse not to exercise!) and eat a little more.  Maybe I'm not giving my body enough to work with on Fridays.  It is something to ponder.

As promised here are a few of the stats since day 1, March 11, 2009:
  • Start weight - 254.4, current weight 168, total loss 86.4
  • Start bust - 50, current 40, loss 10 inches
  • Start waist - 47, current 32, loss 15 inches (more than a foot!)
  • Start hips - 53.5, current 43, loss 10.5
I also measured my arms & legs.  Overall I've lost 50.5 inches.  Go me!

The hard part begins now.  This is always a difficult transition for me.  I go from very strict parameters, which admittedly are driving me nuts, to a little more freedom.  It is somehow hard for me to allow more foods to be legitimate, and larger portions acceptable without making all food in all portions OK.  I know I have to stop vilifying certain foods, because by making them taboo, when I do eat them I feel like a failure.

This is something I'm going to have to explore more in depth later.  The flu/bronchitis/whatever has finally caught up to me.  I need to go hold the couch down for a little while.


  1. Way to go. At least the flu will keep from going crazy on the new diet. Nice NSV with the inches. I wonder if you could buy 50.5 in of fabric and make a new dress :) HAHA.

  2. You are doing so great my friend. Keep it up!!
