I know I know it’s been forever since I shared my weight loss progress! Don’t worry it’s not because I’m not progressing. My life has just been so turned upside down and crazy I have not had much time to sit and type and believe me I miss it very much! Talking with you feels therapeutic.
Let’s get down to business! How much progress have I made?!?!?!?!?
A freaking lot!
As many of you know I have a nifty little chart I made in Microsoft Word that I update each month. Some months I cried when I updated it and saw no progress and other months I did a happy dance when I saw a good amount of weight loss.
Here is a screen shot of part of my chart
My goal since I started was to just be more healthy and not focus so much on the numbers but I can’t help being a visual person. Tracking my measurements has helped me see on paper the difference in my body. Yeah, my clothes were fitting better but I see myself every single day of my life. Seeing a difference in me in much harder and the numbers helped me believe people when they said I looked different.
The only number goal I have had since day one is to have a BMI in the normal range. For women the ideal BMI is 18-24.9. I started with a BMI in the 40′s! I’m getting close now with a BMI of 28. Part of me does wonder if I should be happier with a slightly higher BMI since I am only 4’9″ and I really feel like my height skews the BMI a little but for now I’m still aiming for 24.
So there you have it my numbers out there for everyone to see!
58 lbs less of me to squeeze into pants, hide under baggy clothes, and camouflage under layers.
