New Level of Weight Loss

December 3, 2021

In the Winter of 2012, I stepped on the scale at my pain physician’s office, CPM Scarborough and was flabbergasted when the number came up. 303.6. I was absolutely horrified.

From there I started to eat less and to get moving more and slowly over the years, the weight has slowly and consistently, bar some plateaus, come off..

While my regular pain physician is no longer in that office, I do, in the winter, see her colleague in that Scarborough location This Wednesday I stepped on that same scale that years ago said 303.6.

It read 189.2.

Do you know what that means? As it is the same scale, it means I have lost 114½ pounds so far.

Do you know what else that means? I’m at high school weight. No just able to fit in high school clothes, but the actual numbers?! I’ve not been this light since I graduated highschool. At the end of Grade 13 I was 191lb. So I am about the same weight I was in my highschool graduations pictures .

I’m the same weight, give or take, in these 2 pictures..

Non-Scale Victories

July 9, 2020

All these tags are from my clothing.. A size 4X is a 26/28. This is what I wore at my highest weight. I am now in a size 16, a L/XL!! That’s a huge drop.

The last I wore this fanny pack was two years ago at The Phoenix. So, today I put it on and for it to fit, I had to SHORTEN it, but a whopping SEVEN Inches. So, in 2 years, I’ve lost 7 inches of my waist..

I only have one question here – Where in God’s name did my second chin go?!? 😉

So I shaved my Leggs the other day. That, in & of itself, is pretty impressive. But that’s not the victory, although that is one.. But I looked, actually looked at my Leggs, my calves for the first time in a *long* time, like really looked. I I was impressed & happy with what I saw. A visibly smaller leg than what I recall and toning, definition! Whoo hooo!!

A final one. I stopped by my sister’s place some weeks back to pick up the dog. When I walked in the door, wearing summercsummer that actually fit me.. My 19 yo niece looks at me and says.. “Have you lost weight?” She’s never seen me at this weight before, none or the niece’s & nephews have. Not have many of my friends. Obviously my friends from highschool, yeah, but they aren’t high in number.. cuz I’m at the weight I was when I was in college.
