A Look Back Over The Last 6 Months - Wow, What A Change!

Monday, September 27, 2010

I thought it might be a good idea to take a look back at where I started and where I am today.

Weight - 255 lbs March 2010 - 191.8 lbs Sep 2010 - 63.2 lbs Lost In 6 Months

Height 5'5"

BMI - 42.4 March - 39.1 Sep - 3.3 Lower After 6 Months

Body Fat % - 56.1% March - 42.1% Sep - 14% Lower After 6 Months

Bust - 47" March - 43" Sep - 4" Lost in 6 Months

Waist - 45" March - 37" Sep - 8" Lost in 6 Months

Hips - 51" March - 43" Sep - 8" Lost in 6 Months

Thighs - 29" March - 25.25" Sep - 3.75" Lost in 6 Months

Arms - 15.25" March - 12.25" Sep - 3" Lost in 6 Months

Total Inches - 26.75" Lost in 6 Months

Waist to Hip
Ratio - 0.88 March - 0.86 Sep - 0.02 Lower After 6 Months

Wow! I didn't realize how many inches I'd lost until just now and I'm shocked. I knew I had lost 63.2 lbs, but 26.75" inches, now that's amazing. Okay, the weight loss is amazing too. I never take credit for anything, but that changes today because I'm proud of myself for the hard work I've done over the past 6 months. I have 45.8 lbs left to lose and it's so nice that finally the amount to lose is less than what I've lost to date. My daughter is getting married in June 2011, and I want to look great for that day. Now that I've joined Curves and continuing with my daily walking, I know I'll reach my goal by that date. I'm so glad that finally I've gotten control over the weight battle that was mine for the last 8 years. I'm becoming the me I had hidden deep inside for so long, a strong, confident and happy woman.

    63.2 pounds in 6 months is awesome. emoticon I'm a "numbers person", so I find seeing the numbers change, in the right direction, is very motivating. What a pleasant surprise for you to see how high the inches lost was! emoticon You have come a long way in your journey and your positive attitude, and rightful pride in yourself, will help you to achieve your ultimate goal for next June. emoticon
