Track book of a fat girl

just looking to be healthy

I'm starting p90x3

I thought about deleting old entries, but I'm using them to inspire me to stick with this. I've got a great coach and a great fitness group that is always just a post away for support. If you've followed any of my old posts you'll see that I was on track for gastric bypass surgery in 2011. I chickened out and decided not to do it.

HW 300lbs
 Looks like my lowest weight was 240 in 2007.
Bust 48
Waist 45.5
Hips 60
Neck 18.5
Upper Arms 15R 15.3L
Thighs 29R 28L

I'm choosing not to weigh myself at this time. I don't want the number to discourage me. Though I've horribly failed the fit test I'm going to adapt the classic workout to fit what I can do.

January 11th, 2011

CW: 293
SW: 283.5 (April 2007)
LW: 247 (Oct 2007 after coming back from camp)

So I'm 10 lbs heaver today than I was three years ago. I'm now on track to have gastric surgery, I've got everything in order except that I can't eat meat right now. I experience a lot of pain in my stomach when I eat meat. I have an endoscopy coming up in a few days and hopefully they can learn what is wrong with me and it won't bar me from having my surgery. I need to stop making excuses about my exercise routine and start getting up and DOING something. The doctor says they'd be happy with WiiFit just so long as I'm DOING something.

April 14th!

Today, according to WiiFit I'm ~282lbs with a BMI down to 47.09!! I'm rather excited.

I didn't start the slimquik that I bought. I am going to wait a little and see what progress I can make on my own.

April 9th...

A month to the day since I posted and what can I say... Other than I'm still having trouble getting my portion size under control I feel good. I haven't measured my self on the scale since then and I don't want to speculate on what progress I'm making (or not making) till I get some numbers. Dave is going to help me get some measurements which I need for this dress fitting for Fee's wedding.

I'm scared. Scared that I'll start going for these doctors appointments and they'll say I can't have the bypass or the banding for some reason. Maybe it's because I don't exercise enough, or I can't get on the portion bandwagon fast enough... I'm paranoid I know but I feel so trapped, and like this is my last chance to make this work.

I'm starting SlimQuick tomorrow going to try it out for seven days and see how I feel.

I totally forgot to test my glucose today.

On a happier note, Orson weighs 19.6lbs! Whoo! Tomorrow is one week with us!

So Yesterday

After writing in here I took a 45 minute walk with Orson. I'm going to get a pedometer so I can keep track of how many steps I do with him every day. We didn't get to take a walk today (someone decided to not wash her socks this week...) so we sat outside in my slippers and worked on his commands. Tomorrow I'm going to take him a new route and see if the old abandoned park is thawed out so I can work on commands with him and not have the cats distracting him.

I did it... I am back up to 290lbs. I spent two days hating my self. I haven't altered my diet much-- if anything it's gotten better not worse, we don't have as much pizza, we have more veggies and salad in the house... I realized what I was lacking was movement. I go to school, I go to work-- and I sit on my XL ass and watch television and play on the computer for hours at a time. That's it. Since I had to give up my YMCA membership I have not had the motivation to go swimming, or even play my Wii fit which has been sitting on the shelf gathering dust.

What coincided with this discovery? We adopted a puppy.  Yup a 3 (?) month old black lab (?). Orson is wonderful, he's energetic and keeps me on my toes. I've been trying to walk him at least once a day with success so far. I have all these plans in my head that I would love to do with him like eventually jog with him! Go to the beach with him! Get us agility certified!

I want to do something absolutely awesome with this dog. I want to change lives with this dog.

I'm back under 270!

I am... and I feel so good. I've been monitoring my glucose... not something I'm thrilled about because the test strips cost $109 for 100 strips. I've also invested in light yogurts, Jell-o and Jell-o brand pudding snacks. Oh, can't forget the cheese sticks. I feel like I'm adjusting my pants more often with some pairs, and have no choice but to don a belt with others. Little Victories feel good.

It's been over a year since my A1C showed that something was seriously wrong with my sugar. I'm still sad that my old doctors couldn't have diagnosed this when I was younger... and that i was not "allowed" to start Metformin for my PCOS when I was 15.

All these little things that could have made such a big difference in my weight and sugar problems now, and as we've previously established I'm lazy... I'm lazy and unmotivated even though I have to see the Medical Alert tag on my wrist every day, even though I can't sit down at a lecture desk at school and not feel like the 10,000lb girl...

I get motivated in spurts, Habits never truly seem to stick. I plugged in my Wii today and Wii Fit told me it had been 80 days since my last work out. Good news is my BMI since then went down, and I lost .2 lbs... in 80 days. There is so much that I say I want to do... and then I just, don't.

So... long story short I'm back up to 272lbs. Someone beet me with a stick! beet me until I look like a very shapely but not fat girl.
