My name is Laurie. I'm 34 and I live in a suburb of Houston, TX. My life isn't super exciting or ultra dramatic, but I love it! My blogs are just a peek into my life as I know it. I'm quite random and have an opinion on everything, but I love everyone's aspect on things, even if I disagree. The world would be quite boring if not! :-)


Updates: Measurements!

No - that's definitely not my tummy in the pic above... if it were, you would have known a long time ago!! haha

I have one big regret - that is not taking my measurements pre-op. I didn't want to know at that time, but oh I wish I knew now!! I am still really bad about taking my measurements, but I did it tonight.

So, here is my progress from tracking on Sparkpeople:
My measurements in January 2008:

Weight: 249 lbs

Right Thigh: 29 inches

Right Arm: 16.5 Inches

Waist: 40 inches

Hips: 52.5 inches

Neck: (yeah, SP has you measure this! hah) 13.5 Inches

And now, April 28, 2009 - 15 months later

Weight: 158 pounds

Right Thigh: 21.5 Inches

Right Arm: 12 inches

Waist: 31 Inches

Hips: 39.5 Inches

Neck: 12.25 Inches

Not bad, eh? I'm thrilled that my arms are smaller than my neck.. haha I think that's how things are supposed to be, right? My arms are still my sore spot, as they keep waving long after I stopped moving them.. but, I am seeing improvements, so I will try not to complain too much!

Well, I am off to the gym for Day 1 of my 30 Day challenge mentioned earlier!!

Isn't it funny... how much we didn't want to know "Before" ...

In creating my blog, I searched for DAYS for pre op pictures of me. The truth was, that I didn't have many, because I never wanted to see my fat in photos.

You are beautiful! You should be proud!!!

I hate doing measurement but for the new weight loss challenge that I am entering and also helping out with, we do measurements weekly. Looking from your numbers, very impressive, great job!
