New Me! Wednesday Weigh-in Week 1!


I hope the new year has started off wonderfully for all of my lovely readers.
So far, 2011 hasn't been too bad for us, although we didn't win the three hundred fifty-something million last night in the Mega Million lottery...boy would that have started our year off with a bang! 

Anyhow....New Year....NEW ME!

I am overweight. No, I am OBESE. Ugh. It's true.

My current BMI is 35.5... any thing over 30 is considered obese. :(

THAT is why I need to change me.

And so begins my Wednesday Weigh-Ins.

Over the course of the next year I plan on losing at least 60lbs. That is a little more than 1lb a week, and seems very attainable to me. I will mostly be dieting, but I hope to find some exercises that I can do at home for the winter and I plan on walking when it is warmer.

Okay....so here goes the embarrassment. Here is me as of today:



Here is what the scale says today:

  

227lbs.


And here are my current measurements:

Neck- 14"
Arms: L-14" R-14"
Chest- 50"
Waist- 45"
Hips- 51"
Thighs- L- 27" R- 28"

Sigh.....lots of work to do!

I will post my measurements and pictures the first week of every month, and weights every Wednesday. I would love for some of my readers to follow my journey and maybe even join in!

You can do it! Due to a recent diagnosis of type 2 diabetes, I'm right there with you with NO choices or excuses because my life depends on it. That's a motivator :)
