Day 1: A New Hope (Updated with waist measurement!!)

Eeek, gotta write fast, I overslept and need to get dressed for church, BUT two things:
  1. It's time to stop calling my lack of weight loss a plateau. My body reset itself, and while I'm glad I kept off 30 pounds, 10 have crept back on. It is time to start again, from a new beginning.
  2. Pretend I wrote this yesterday, on June 1. It will be easier to track my days that way.
SO: Back to logging my food and numbering my days. In addition to tracking my weight, I will also track my waist size, which is currently 40+ inches. (I'll update later; the only thing I have handy to measure it with is a ruler.) I've been told to strive for a waist that is half your height, so mine should measure no more than 34.

(OK, I couldn't resist, I just tried it with the ruler. The ruler says 46 inches. I'll let you know how accurate that is.)

My starting weight: 257. My goal weight: 149. I still want to lose more than a hundred pounds but not quite half myself — so, more doable, right? In theory anyway.

The good news is that I don't eat as much when it's hot. I also don't drink as much wine. The bad news is, I don't feel like moving either. But we'll see how it goes. I plan to make early morning exercise my new best friend.

Church calls. Onward!

44 inches. Hmm.

    That's it! A waist size that's half your height! I now know that I'm not really overweight: I'm just TOO SHORT! I just need to get TALLER... by about a foot.

    1. You = adorable.

      Let's grow together!
