The Quarterly "Still Fat and Hating It" Post

There is something about Easter that always makes me ready for another round in the boxing ring with my weight. Perhaps it is the two dozen hardboiled dyed eggs that are stinking up the fridge (so tasty though, and healthy if you don't eat the yoke). Perhaps it is the crap load of sugar and candy I managed to consume this weekend despite the fact I am not a child. I spent twenty minutes last night attempting to floss, brush and powerwash as much of said sugar out from between my teeth.

Stress and winter have both been fun little factors, as they always are, in the tango I dance with my weight. Where I should have been using the treadmill as a coping mechanism, I turned to my fingernails instead and while I can at least say I haven't reached my top weight again, I'm am closer to it then I would like to be.

The Biggest Loser competition is still going strong at work. Well, it was originally supposed to be Jan 8 - Mar 8, then it got bumped to May 8 and now we are all admitting that we need more time, so the deadline has been postponed to July. But I know that by that point, I will be much further down the scale. I've done it before and I can do it again.

So it all starts today. The water. The regimented walking and points and being on board with it all. I have too many cute clothes for summer that I want to fit into. And a 10 year reunion I want to attend being as healthy as I can be.

Yes, the weekly photos will start again, though I won't be posting all of them. Just monthly comparisons. I need all the motivation I can get. So here are the disgustingly true numbers. Current weight= 176.5 Current BMI= 28. My goal weight is 140 and my goal BMI is between 20-25

My measurements as of 4/13/2009

Bust - 43 1/2 inches
Chest - 36
Waist - 41 1/2
Hips - 41 1/2
Thighs - 24
Arms - 13
Neck - 15

Now I know I cannot be the only one out there who is feeling bigger than they want to be. So who's going to join me and make 2009 the year we finally cut the weight for good? I'm doing it, regardless, but it would be great to have support. As the weather gets nicer, maybe have a walking buddy or two?

Who's with me? Who wants to get skinny and hot and sassy for summer??


  1. here here I am still fat and hating it too.. actually like most days I was thinking about it today. But we say this alot.. we need a support group

  2. Me, me, me! I started WW again 6 weeks ago and had lost 9lbs (without much exercise) and fell off the wagon this weekend. Afraid to weigh in on Wed. :(

  3. GOD, YES! Aside from pregnancy, i'm almost to my top weight ever. I hated being there before, and I hate it now. I'm not a dieter, but i'm trying to be better about my food and drink choices. It helped...for a few pounds. Now I need to get on the eliptical and walk...and crunch my abs back into some sort of shape after baby. I'd like to be back at my wedding weight. Which was just my weight. I didn't diet myself to get there, it's just what my (properly thyroid medicated) body wanted to be at. I have 20 lbs to lose.
