A new challenge for me

Standard

Ok I am about to start on a new challenge for me. For long time I have been overweight, not obese but overweight. I will be honest I am about 35 pounds overweight. If you go by the recommended weight for my height…I’m about 45 pounds overweight. I am saying 35 pounds because I cannot see myself at 140 pounds anymore but I’ll cross that bridge when I lose the 35 🙂 I know it didn’t happen overnight and I know it’s not going to come off overnight. So in order to do this I am giving myself 1 yr. I know that sounds ridiculous. Most people want it of in a lot less than that. I figure since this did not happen overnight I’m not going to expect myself to lose it overnight. I have got to a point where if I don’t do something I know I will be somewhere I don’t want to be. I don’t want to be that person in 10 years that has to have cholesterol, blood pressure, diabetic or any other medications that follow becoming obese. I know not all obese people have these issues but I know a lot do. I am almost 40 yrs old and I have to make a change. That’s what I am doing now!

So to kick this off I am going to be completely honest and bare all of my measurements to all of my followers and anyone else that sees this. I hope I have your support my friends because I am sure I will need it.

This is for week 1 (measurements taken on 7/14/2015):

My age: 37 (almost 38)

My height: 5′ 7″

My weight: 186.4 lbs

My bust: 42 in

My waist: 37 in

My hips: 43 in

Now that it seems I have bared all I can, I mean really I don’t think I can more than this (at least legally 😛 ), I will update this every week with my new measurements. It will be updated regardless if I have lost anything or not. This is my new journey and I will do this…for myself!

    Good luck, and good for you for being honest about this. I’m in a similar situation, and I actually feel pretty healthy so I don’t worry too much about it, but my vanity doesn’t like it 😦 It’s frustrating- for me it’s been a matter of aging and metabolism slowing down (I’m 47), and me not being willing to work harder at staying slim.

    • Thank you so much for the support!! It can be frustrating and like you I am fairly healthy but I know if I don’t do it now it just gets more difficult to do it.
