Day 1: The Ugly Truth
Monday, October 29, 2018
I decided that after the other night, I needed a "reset" for getting my butt in gear with all of this. I had already gone through my trackers and all, but I had not taken any photos and measurements.
So, here they are - the ugly truth:
Starting Weight for 10/29/2018: 264 lbs
Upper Arm: 15"
** Edit: I'll admit that sitting here looking at this photo, I'm quite disgusted with myself. How did I get here? I know that the injury, the treatments, the lack of treatments, and all led to it, but they can also be excuses. But right now, it saddens me that I got here.
My Halloween costume was a recycled costume, and I almost cried putting it on this past Saturday night. I almost could not put it on. The waist was too tight on the drawstring britches.
It's not been that long ago since I was at a healthy weight, and I did it even on medications that were considered to have a side-effect of weight gain. But, I also know that all of this was thanks to a back injury that put me on a long, drawn out, two year journey.
That journey stops today.
A new one starts today.
