Not a thin girl……Yet

The story of how a not so thin girl goes from 260 to 130 pounds!

Day 33: 52 to Brand New 09/02/2009

Finally an update about my weight and my progress!! Whoo this has been the month to end all months. I’ve been thrown curve balls left and right. You know that saying, “if it’s not one thing, then it’s the other”? Well if it’s not one thing, it’s about 3 more things that will try to throw you off track and send you heading in the opposite direction. My favorite quote, “Ever forward”! That’s what I’m trying to do, keep moving forward, getting up and keeping it moving. So I took my measurement and weight about 3 days ago but I am just getting around to posting it. For those that don’t know 52 to brand new is my challenge just to track how long it takes me to loose my last 52 pounds. So here is the information:

Day 33:

Highest weight: 260

Current Weight: 175

Pounds lost during 52 to brand new: 7

Total pounds lost: 85

Current measurements:

Waist: 34.5 (1 inch difference)

Muffin top waist: 39 (.5 inch difference)

Thighs: 25 (1.6 difference)

Arms: 13 (.7 difference)

hips:  40 (3 inch difference)

Under breast : 32 (1 inch difference)

Chest : 35 (same)

Neck : 13 (1 inch difference)

Total inches lost during 52 to brand new: 8.8

Highest BMI: 43.3 Obese class 3, Morbid Obese

52 to brand new start BMI: 30.3, Obese class 1

Current BMI: 29.1, Over weight

Reflections for month: Didn’t really work out like I should have, even before the emergency surgery. Right now I am on restriction for about 2 more weeks. I’m not supposed to do strenuous movements or lift over 10 pounds. My Doctor told me to remember that I have had major abdominal surgery. My diet has also been hit and miss. I was doing good food wise before a lot of the drama. However for the last 2 weeks of this month it’s been pretty hit and miss. Having two servings of ice cream a day is not good for you even if it is diet ice cream (during the first 2 weeks). So even though I lost 7 pounds this month, it could have been much better with more exercise and a better diet. Some high notes are that I wore my first pair of size 10 pants to clinical, with a white shirt tucked in! I can’t even remember the last time I have been this small so that was encouraging. I really really really need to get back to exercising. My stomach which looked pretty big before, looks even worse now. I’m sure that is due to the surgery and now infected sutures post surgery. But if you have visited my sparkpage and seen my stomach shots, just image a body looking even more crazily proportioned. I’ve lost the most inches on my hips this month.  I can’t wait to really start losing my tummy! After surgery I was joking with my doctor. I asked her why when she was in there removing a base ball sized cyst did she not just go ahead and give me a tummy tuck. That would have been nice. So my new goals for the next 30 days:

Eat better (more veggies)

Get at least 8hrs of sleep

Slowly get back into working out

Hopefully start dropping some inches on my stomach!

Day 1:
It’s official today marks the day I finally reached 182 pounds. Depending on  who you are you might be thinking, “wow girl lay off the cheeseburgers!”, or “I hate you, you skinny b*tch”. But regardless  this is coming from a girl that thought she would never weigh anything below 200 pounds. From here on out I’m going to keep track of the days it takes me to loose my last 52 pounds. I will weigh in each week, and do monthly measurements. I’m calling it 52 to Brand New.  I’m been in search of Ms New Me for a while now. I’m not sure how long it will take me, but I guess I will find out. I don’t even want to put a time frame up because it could lead to disappointment, which turns into  feeling like a huge failure. In the last 7 months I have lost 55 pounds. So maybe that’s how long it will take going forth. I’m not really sure because my desire to workout has went from about 75% to a good 10%, and that’s being generous. I’m not even going to lie and say today I’m going to work out. Because in all honesty I am not. I think I’ll spend the rest of the night watching old t.v. shows on Hulu. Right now I’m watching my way through The Outer Limits. Yeah I may not be a thin girl, but I’m somewhat of a geek. Today my diet has been horrendous if not nonexistent. It’s not even what you may be thinking. I have not been snacking, and I don’t have said cheeseburger in hand. I haven’t eaten much of anything all day. Don’t worry I’m not on a 2 calorie diet or some other crazy nonsense. It’s just that my fridge is pretty bare of healthy items, unless you count condiments and processed cheese slices.  I currently have 2 tubs of ice cream. One is of cookies and cream, the other banana split, which both fall under the milk group, and possibly the fruit group. But I doubt that counts as healthy. There is also ice cream cake in the freezer. So if I wanted I could load up on sugar,  I could but then my next post would be about how I was gaining weight and not losing it. Tomorrow is Friday, and thank goodness a pay day! So I will be going shopping then. Now for my official weigh in for my 52 to Brand New:
