Owning the Numbers

This is the hard post to write because it is about putting the numbers out there for the world to see and owning it.  It isn’t just going to be a number on the scale anymore… it will be real.  I did this to myself and I own it.  While the number embarrasses me now, I know I have to start somewhere, and that number is 246.3 lbs (Aug 10).  I am only 5’1″ so that is way too much weight to be carrying around on my short frame.

That is not my heaviest weight though.  I reached my heaviest weight back in June when I weighed in at 247.7 pounds.  So at least I am headed in the right direction!

I weigh in every Monday morning when I wake up and try to stay off the scales during the week.  At the end of week 1, I weighed in 243.6 lbs (Aug 20).  So still headed in the right direction!

But the embarrassing numbers do not end there.  My bust-waist-hips measurements are 48″-49″-55″.  I only measure on the first day of each month so no update to add yet.  This is the first time in my life my waist is bigger than my bust… and I do not like it!  Not one single tiny bit.

Whew!  Now to hit the [PUBLISH] button…
