Alexis' Journey to Self-Love ETA: Measurements!

Posted by   + Show Post

So I've finally gotten fed up enough with being fat and out of shape that I've decided to do something about it. I just turned 25 on the 10th and getting in shape is my present to myself. I am a single mom of an 8 year old and I need to be healthy and in shape not only for me but for him as well. 

I'm tired of letting my weight hold me back and make me think less of myself. I want to be strong, confident and have high self-esteem. For me it's losing the weight which will help me to learn to love me more.

I don't have stats as far as measurements but I'll do those over time eventually. I currently weigh 176 lbs and I am 5'2. My goal weight is 125-130.

I started working out yesterday using a downloaded workout app called WorkOut Trainer and so far it's been amazing!! I worked out yesterday for 30 minutes and was sweating like a stuck pig and my heart was racing but it felt good.

My struggles are: PCOS, IBS, emotional eating and binging. I am working on not eating my emotions and trying to not be as stressed. 


I'll be tracking on here daily and hope that it keeps me motivated!!

 

Took my measurements today (9/15/2013) and they are as follows:

Stomach: 41 inches

Right thigh: 20 inches

Right calf: 13 inches

Left thigh: 19 inches

Left calf: 14 inches

Chest: 44.3 inches

Right arm: 14 inches

Left arm: 14 inches (also I've noticed I have more muscle tone in this arm

I completely binged today. I was so stressed out today and I'm so tired. Hopefully the week gets better!

My day sucked and so I binged like hell. I've been binging for the past 3 days so I don't expect a loss on the scale this weekend although it's only Wednesday. I'm just tired and stressed out. I'm just ready for the weekend. 

Homework is piling up and I'm just tired....

So I stepped on the scale this morning just to see what it said and I was very disappointed in myself. I have got to do better :(

I don't even want to post this but keeping up with my weekly weigh ins, I weighed myself this morning. I GAINED 5 LBS! (I'm at 177.8) Shows you how serious my binging is huh? I am officially putting my scale up and going to try my best to weigh myself once a month. 

I plan on weighing myself on the 15th of every month from now on.
