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
Neck: 16"
Bust: 52"
Chest: 45"
Waist: 47"
Hips: 48"
Thigh: 29"
Calf: 17"
Upper Arm: 15"
Height: 5'8"

** 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.
