I'm so excited I have finally began sharing on BlogHer, and I thought my first post should share where it all started.
"I weigh how much? Are you #%*& serious?"
I thought that’s what I would screech at Dr V during my weigh in. Although, I believe I could have be forgiven if an expletive had escaped my lips. However, you will all be pleased to know it didn’t.
As I walked over to the scales I was wondering if they would start flashing an error message and moaning in agony. I breathed a quiet sigh of relief when they didn’t.
Without further ado, here are my statistics as of 10 December 2012:
- Height 172 cms
- BMI 54.4 (Body mass index)
- Weight 160.09 kilos
- Chest 144cm
- Waist 138cm
- Hips 160cm
Now to wait for blood tests results to make sure my cholesterol level is acceptable, and check if diabetes has reared it’s ugly head - the results will be revealed next Wednesday. Stay tuned.
Dr V was perturbed more by the fact that I had put on 18 kilos since the beginning of August. Bloody hell!
Even I was a little surprised about that. I know there is no excuse – BUT – over the past few months I know I’ve taken comfort in food. I know, I know, we all have stress in our lives. I’m not going to try and justify it.
Though I will tell you I know why I did it. Isn’t that part of the journey of recognizing the triggers, and then deflecting them?
Just do something.
So I got moving; I played 30 minutes of WII tennis, 15 minutes of exercise bike. Please don’t suggest I use WII Fit. I can’t. Want to know why? The ‘WII fit board’ says I’m too fat. Go figure.
It doesn’t matter if you have 50 or 5 kilos to lose; it’s all relative. Share your experience and help inspire others.
