Day #1: Heavier than I Thought


I set my alarms (yes, I have multiple alarms) to wake up for yoga this morning at 5:30am. Once again I slept through them. Something’s got to give. I’ll try to get out of work in time to make it to the night class today, and take it from there.

Weighing in was sure an eye-opener, though! I’m 164.2 lbs – the heaviest I can recall ever being. It makes sense, since I feel heavier. Things are jiggling that never jiggled before. My neck feels loser, my arms feel heavier and more awkward, and even though I fit in the same size I’ve been wearing since college, it’s not a sexy look anymore. I’m a little closer to a sausage effect. Thank god for spandex, or I’d have to shell out for new fat clothes. Sorry, but that ain’t happening. Time to get down to business.

My measurements (which I’ll do on Fridays to keep things simple) are:

  • Thigh: 23.5″
  • Hips: 40″
  • Waist: 29″
  • Chest: 37.5″ (which is weird, since I wear a 34″ bra – which I was measured professionally for)
  • Biceps: 12″
  • Calves: 14.5″
  • Ankles: 7.5″ (they look swollen to me, so I want to keep track)

For breakfast I’m drinking a GNC Lean Shake, made with ice and water, no extra calories. It’s time to wrap this up – got to head out to the chiropractor to have my hips adjusted again. It’s great having very minimal back pain now, after years of serious pain. I should really feel guilty for not making the most of this opportunity to be active and whole again.

Here we go!
