Brick ScaryAnn1 Working my way up to TDEE
I'm kind of kicking myself in the behind for not starting to keep track of measurements from the get go, but I really didn't think it was going to work for me. After all, nothing else had.     But here I am almost a year into eating more and I have no idea what my measurements were last August when I started other than I was wearing a size 24 stretch jeans that were getting tight and I weighted 305 pounds. I am now wearing size 22 stretch jeans that I need a belt to hold up!    

I started keeping track of measurements on April 25th of this year.
This is today's update on MFP

Weight = 284.8
Down- .6 pounds

Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR) = 1890
Daily calories to maintain weight (TDEE) = 2363
Average calories = 1926

Weight - April 286 pounds / Today 284.8 pounds -1.2 pounds
Calf- April 20.5 inches / Today 19.25 inches - 1.25 inches
Thigh- April 30 inches / Today 28 inches - 2 inches
Hips - April 58 inches /Today 56.25 inches - 1.75 inches
Abdomen - April 51 inches / Today 49 inches - 2 inches
Waist - April 48 inches / Today 46 inches - 2 inches
Forearm - April 13 inches / Today 12. 25 inches - .75 inches

I wasn't going to put any measurements here because I was so embarrassed by them, but I just realized that instead of being embarrassed I should be proud instead. So here they are.

Do you ever wake up and just feel smaller, this was how I felt yesterday, that was why I wanted to update today instead of tomorrow. Look what a month can do!

Wow, way to go! What amazing progress! And definitely no reason to feel embarrassed to post - these forums are for us to use!

One thing you might want to consider is starting a journal of your own in the Personal Journals section. That way all of your updates will be in the same thread, and it gives you a great way to look back and (easily) track your progress. We will see your updates as you post them there. Can't wait to hear more about your progress!
