My Starting Measurements

Deb (blog: Shedding My Fatsuit) gave me this idea - posting my measurements! I thought that was a brilliant idea, because often the scale doesn't move, but the inches do. So, while Deb still hasn't drummed up the nerve to go for a swim in public (I'm SO there with you, Deb!!!), she had all the bravery in the world to post those measurements. Here are mine:

Neck: 18.5"

Chest: 53"

Waist: 50"

Hips: 58.5"

BMI: 49.5

The truth can be very harsh, my friend. I may not think I look 307 lbs when I look in the mirror, but these measurements, and the camera (see my profile picture), don't lie.

Thanks to Deb, working hard down there in Texas, for posting her measurements. It inspired me to do the same, and I think - as the weight comes off - I'll be so glad I did !!! Hugs, Deb.



  1. Hi there, other Ann!
    It will be fun to read all about it!
    I'll be rooting for you!

  2. Thanks, Anne H. !! I stopped by your blog and loved the photos. I got quite the giggle from them. It sounds like you are doing very well. Good job on staying away from the monster drinks! (My nemesis is McD's Mocha Frappe.) Keep up the good work ...

  3. Thanks - we are all learning and therefore all in this together!
    Onward and downward!

  4. Oh, I am SO going to use that ... "Onward and downward!" That is a wonderful catch-phrase. I hope the headaches have subsided. It can take the body a few days to adjust to a more decaf sort of life.
