Curves and measurements

So, here we are 4 weeks into my 9 week challenge to myself to lose 9 kgs, and I hit my heaviest weight yet. Over the last two weeks I have slipped on the eating big time. I actually hit 130 kgs on Friday, and it scared me senseless. 

So, on Friday I started doing something that both is exhausting but invigorating all at the same time.....back to Curves it is for me. The only work out that I truly enjoy.
I was shocked to see in just over a year of not going, that my measurements were all so much higher, and I have alot of work to do.....just to get back to where I was a year ago, let alone where I was at my lowest.

Taking it very much 1 day at a time.......this is not a race, but if I just go each day and do my 30 mins, I am adding in some vital exercise, coupled with following a good post op eating plan, will help me get back down to where I should be!!!!

I am going to put my measurements below to show you the comparison from July 2011 to now.......the only one I am not sure was right was my arms.....I think they under measured back in July 2011, with the loose skin it can be hard to measure it properly.

 So as you can see I am not a happy camper and I will be going to curves 4-5 days a week as well as riding my bike at least 1-2 time per week.  I also have to just get over myself and eat what I plan. So today I am going back to eating the small can of tuna on two corn thins, with a piece of fruit. It is boring, but hell, I need to get myself back on track and I have to remember I should be eating for fuel not for enjoyment. !!!!!!!!!

 I have also included a new shot of my blood tests. Even with the new drugs things are not going in the right direction. So will be discussion again with specialist. He mentioned that if this didn't work he would have to refer me to a specialist in Auckland. Just click on the picture to make it easier to read.
