Weight Loss Progress Report

I am sorry to say that my last weight loss progress report to all of you was back in July. The reason for this is simple: I hit a mean, nasty, and ornery weight loss plateau, that I just couldn't seem to shake. Finally however, I was able to overcome it and get back on track once again. My goal weight is 190 lbs. so, I seem to be getting nearer yet, somehow it seems farther away than ever. I know you’re busy so, here are the results.

  • Beginning weight on 6 August 2007: 298 pounds (as confirmed by my doctor)

  • Beginning hip measurement:48 inches

  • Beginning waist measurement: 56 inches

    • Weight on 27 July 2008: 232 lbs.

    • Hip measurement: 39 inches

    • Waist measurement: 44 inches

      • Weight on 25 March 2009: 215 lbs.

      • Hip Measurement: 38 inches

      • Waist measurement: 41 3/4 inches

      • Total weight loss: 83 lbs.

I really don't see myself losing any more than maybe one or two more inches around my hips, but I do know that I have at least another five or six inches or more, that I can lose around my waist. As for any fat on my legs, arms, or back, that has been pretty much eliminated and replaced with muscle. Once I ever reach the 200 lb. mark, I am going to break down and reward myself with a Chicago Connection Pizza. After that, it will be back to work.


  1. You've lost weight, so keep at it.

  2. Linda: Thank you, I plan on it. I don't want to go back to the way I was.

  3. Wonderful results! I hope you get to enjoy that pizza by summer!

  4. BeadedTail: Thank you, I hope I can, too. I'm tired of just dreaming about them. Pretty weird, huh:)

  5. Congratulations! You certainly made a lot of progress. I think the inches is the best indicator, more than weight. Now it's time for putting up a before and after picture, eh?

  6. Congrats! You are doing a great job. I now feel even more guilty about the Hostess Cupcake that I just ate. I really need to get myself working out before summer. It is coming fast.

  7. You have done an amazing job. Wow, you should be so proud of yourself.
    I've lost a ton of weight (well, okay just 100 pounds) and it takes a while for that fat to go away even after the weight is gone. Took lots of exercise and go ahead and eat the pizza if that's what you desire.
    Anyway, congratulations.

  8. Karen, author of "My Funny Dad, Harry": Thank you! The inches do tell the actual tale and I'm very glad that I was able to get some baseline measurements just after I started. As for the pictures, I didn't take a before shot...just too scary to look at:)

    Melissa Erickson: Thank you, it's hard work, but I feel so much better about myself. Hostess Cupcake, Yum! Frozen and dipped in milk, even better;)

    Mountain Woman: 100 pounds is FANTASTIC!! Congratulations to you! I have been dreaming of that pizza for almost 2 years now. Drool, drool:-)
