My six-month bandiversary came and went on Thursday without me even noticing. I'm chalking it up to a crazy time of year. As each month has passed since my surgery, I have logged measurements of my body to see how it is changing in relation to my weight loss.
Six months ago I weighed 297.7 lbs. I was wearing size 24 jeans and 3X shirts. I was huge and miserable.
Today, six months and two days later, I weight 229 lbs. I wear a size 16 or 18 size jeans and XL shirts. I am still huge, but not miserable. I'm hopeful and excited and motivated.
And, in case you're curious...
I've lost 1 inch in my neck.
1.5 inches in my upper arms
4.5 inches in my mid thighs
3 inches in my mid-calves
6 inches around my waist
6.5 inches around my hips
6 inches in my bust (*gulp*)
...for a grant total of 28.5 inches lost in six months!!
