I wanted to create a page called “Week 0” to document my weight and measurements before I officially began this journey.
Saturday, October 12th was my initial weigh in at.. 237.4 pounds.
This weight was a wake up call for me, because earlier this year I was close to being under 200 pounds.
At 5’7, my current BMI is 37.2 which puts me in the obesity category.
While it is easy to look back and wonder how I got to this point, I have to accept where I am currently and graciously move ahead and on my journey.
In addition to the number on the scale, I wanted to capture some measurements in these areas:
Waist: 39.5 in
Hips: 44.5 in
Thighs: 29 in
Calves: 18.5 in
Upper arm: 16 in
Measurement Updates will happen every month, while weight updates will happen every week!
As I move forward I have to say something..
I AM SO EXCITED.
At the end of the day, I love who I am. I have a long climb ahead, but with positive thinking, organization and support from friends, family, and my readers, there’s nothing I can’t do.
See you next week!
