measurements

It’s Monday, and because I love alliteration, I figured Major Measurements were perfect for a Monday. As I mentioned in yesterday’s post, I have been really remiss in taking measurements.  In fact, the last records I have of any measurements at all are from two years ago, in March 2012.  Back at that time, I was still on my quest to lose the pre-op weight loss requirement, and I was struggling with it.  So much so that after looking back at the posts on this blog from March 2012, I can see that I wasn’t really weighing in at all.  There is one weigh-in post from the beginning of the month, and it said that I weighed 297.  So, while these numbers aren’t from my very highest weight of 315, which I bounced up to in late 2012, they’re probably pretty close.

Admittedly, after losing over 120 pounds (-122.4 as of this morning!) since the first set of measurements were taken, I was going to see big changes in the numbers, but it is really astounding when I see it in black and white.

In total, I’ve lost 48 1/2 inches from around my body!!  That’s four feet!!! I’m really excited with all of these changes, but especially the changes in my bust, waist, hips, and thighs.

From here on out I’m going to take measurements once a month, on the 20th. I had my VSG surgery on May 20th, so celebrating progress like this on the 20th of each month seems like a perfect thing to do. I’ve also decided to start taking progress photos in my sports bra and running pants, because that will really help to show the changes in my body. This is a major step for me, taking pictures in so little clothing.  But I guess that’s all part of this journey, right?
