Back boobs suck.

Okay.
If you've been reading my blog for a while, you'll know i've been unhappy with my weight.
For well.. My entire life.
I was spinning out of control with my eating.
BUT
Finally I got the motivation to buckle down and do it.
Once & for all.
I did the HCG diet.
I know, I know.
GASP.
This diet is so controversial, so by blogging about it i'm sure i'll get a fair amount of crap.
Oh well. I was unhealthy.
When I started HCG 42 days ago I weighed:
184.1 pounds
I am 5'10"
My BP was 138/97 WHOA. 
Measurements:
Hips: 45
Waist: 36
Bust: 42
Arm: 14
Thigh: 27
Okay, I am so embarrassed right now.
Keep in mind 184.1 pounds is not the highest weight I have ever been. That is still about 30 pounds less than the heaviest weight I've been in my life.
Now for the big reveal, you will only get pictures of my back. 
haha
I missed the second week of taking pictures.. Whoops. 
Here are my new stats:
BP: 117/73
Weight: 157.1
Hips: 41
Waist: 29
Bust: 37
Arm: 11
Thigh: 22
I started HCG May 5 and finished June 15th.
In 40 days I lost 27 pounds! Woohoo.
I lost
4 inches off my hips
7 inches off my waist
5 inches off my bust
3 inches off my arm
and 5 inches off my thigh!
If you notice the top half of my body loses weight much more rapidly than the bottom half.
I've got a booty!
But at least I don't have back boobs anymore!
BAHAHA.
Anyways, I am eating no carbs or sugar for the next three weeks.
Tonight I am starting up the shred again.
{who's with me?}
After three weeks I will be going back on weight watchers.
I have been so tired from lack of calories each day.
So blogging has taken the back burner.
Hopefully now that I have more calories in me, I will get my motivation back.
:)
I couldn't be more happy with my results. 
& I only have 13 more pounds till I reach my goal!
{disclaimer: I admit HCG is hard, and probably isn't at all healthy.. BUT either is being overweight}
P.S. This post is so mortifying for me. 
So if I know you in my real life... Please don't mention the fact that you now know my weight, and the circumference of my wider regions. 
Or that you've seen my back in all of it's glory.
Thanks.

Shewearscrazywell said...

Dag nab girl...you look HAWT!!! I think your back looks amazing! Wowie! Yes...the shred..woo hoo! I'm working my way there. Right now I'm doing The Biggest Loser Cardio Max Weight loss and just got the 30 day jump start book and food journal. I am actually adjusting the way I eat and what I eat. I have always eaten to big of portions and the wrong stuff. For the last two weeks, I have been drinking water (no soda), healthy meals that are balanced and in portion, and exercised 6 days a week! :) I feel so much better!!! I already lost 10 lbs. I have ummm...60 to 70 to go. Slowly but surely I will get there. I started at 218, now 207. I am wicked excited to be below 200. Then onward to the 150's...then...maybe even back to the 140's that I used to be in! As long as I'm healthy, toned, and in shape...I'm good. Thank you for all the motivation and help. I heart you and am so happy for you! Hearts, Janna Lynn

yayayayayayay!! that's so amazing! really tough diet though, i'm proud of you for sticking through it! amazing results!!! you look great!

i'm doing the shred too - i tweeted this to you - but i'm alternating it with slogging. i'm dying to see some results though! i don't eat unhealthy but i don't necessarily eat super healthy but i'm on portion control. i feel really tired by the end of the day though. man i wish my back boobs would go away!!! i'm totally jealous! haha my back boobs are honestly what finally gave me the push to get going on losing weight. so freaking disgusting.

anyway, like i said, really proud of ya! you shouldn't be embarrassed at all!!!

With Love, Jamie said...

Wow!!! That's amazing! I'm so happy for you, as long as you are happy & feel good about yourself then that's awesome!
Go you!

Erin Dawn said...

This is pretty inspiring! Your first measurements are basically where I'm at now...I'm dieting and exercising, but progress is sooo slow. Now I'm tempted to give this a whirl!

The Prairie Hen said...

Your honesty is refreshing! I love seeing posts like this!
ps- you look amazing.
pps- how is your pooch? I think about the poor thing all the time. :(

renee kristine said...

Wow you look awesome! Well done!!! It's so hard to lose weight, I'm doing the 30 Day Shred currently, and *trying* to eat smart. It's so hard.

Just scrolled through a few posts ... adorable new babies! And your puppy, how is she? Oh that one made me so sad to read. Hope she's doing fine by now.

Maegan :)

renee kristine said...

oh, and reading more about the diet... i've concluded; i feel like you could have gotten the same results without the hcg, no? i mean, 500 calories a day will make you lose weight... a lot of weight. i guess i'm just confused as to what the hcg does... pharmacist Steve says he's never heard of hcg for weight-loss and called it "questionable"

haha, good thing you know i love you and am not judging you, just giving my input where it's not asked for :)

amyschmamey said...

Wowee you really lost a lot! Good for you!!!!! No judgement here. I just hope you can keep it off. I know you will if you keep at it. I lost 27 lbs by eating all organic foods and making my portions smaller. I'm going to do that again after I have this baby. :). I'm so happy for you!!!

snsnsnsibility said...

congratulations on your progress thus far!!! that is so great!!! And if that diet works for you and gives your body the nutrients it needs to work and to work well, then good for you! keep up the good work!!!

enie meenie said...

Girl you look fabulous! My ass would have took pictures of my back too hahaha :) I am officially encouraged by you- Seriously, fuck back boobs! I am ready to get rid of mine! Thank you for sharing your post :)

Katie said...

I love you for this. You are amazing girl! And I've never actually heard of HCG. I'll probably look it up right now, but I won't judge. I've done some heinous things to lose weight myself.
Me and you weigh about the same right now (I am at 159), and I'm starting the shred tomorrow! I'm going to do a before and after picture, so I'll post some embarrassing pictures of myself in the end of it all.
Your body is BANGIN!

Eva said...

deanna@delirious-rhapsody said...

good for you! you know i'm always going to support anyone on their weight loss journey! i hope you're beginning to feel more like yourself again. i know how it feels to be trapped in your own skin.

Paigeepee. said...

with a chance of said...

You're results are crazy awesome! I, personally, thought you were at a good healthy weight before but it's all about what you feel comfortable with. You're a beautiful tall lady and you still want to look like a woman. I'm so impressed by you. You are definitely going to be an inspiration to help me lost baby weight! ^_~ Keep up the great work. I'm jumping up and down for you!

Chrissy said...

Crystal Arballo said...

I'm interested in this HCG. Does it make you feel like you're nauseous all the time like when you're pregnant? I know HCG is what you test for when you're pregnant?
Eric's Aunt used it and lost quite a bit. Wondering if I shouldn't try it to get back down to where I was.
You look awesome! Super jealous : )

But I respect and admire that you did... Awesomeness! I want to lose some weight too.... Where should I start???!! Probably throwing away the choco chip cookies sitting on my work desk, huh??

Ashley {hudson's happenings} said...

YOU ARE AWESOME! You look amazing and I love your honesty in sharing this struggle with everyone. I am sure this touches so many people in the blogosphere who need advice and motivation! I have the most terrible willpower. I wish that I could be better at watching what I eat.

Amylou said...

Oh and I'm starting up the shred at day 1 again since I wasn't able to do it while I was out of town. So I'm with ya girl!
You my dear are amazing!

Breeanna @ a brilliant melody said...

Those are amazing results in just 42 days! You can tell you were really working hard!

I've stopped weighing myself recently because I've been eating so bad lol

But I'm starting to get motivated again to exercise (doing 30 minutes a night isn't too hard). And I'm lowering my carbs, which is hard.

Congrats on your success! You look great!

posidanielle said...

omgosh doll! that's amazing! Way to go!! Maybe that's what I need to start! I want to lose weight so bad and I had originally lost 30lbs last october but I've gained like half of it back! :( its so hard to stay motivated. I am definitely going to check the hcg diet out.
You look wonderful, love!

I'm so very proud of you for sticking to your word. You truly do inspire and motivate me.

Keep up the good work!

Brissa said...

that is amazing! it's neat to hear a REAL success story instead of the ones they post on their website. this is definitely motivation for me to get my rear in gear!!

wallflower said...

Hey! That's awesome. :) I'm glad you're being motivated into doing something you want to accomplish!

I'm in a different boat, I'm trying to gain weight, and it's actually a lot harder for some people! Wish me luck!!

Hope all is well. :)

renee kristine said...

Mugdha said...

Wow, that is an amazing change! I'm in a phase right now where I'm trying to find the motivation to do something like this. I'm the heaviest I've ever been in my life because of some recent really stressful situations, and this is truly inspiring. Keep doing what you're doing, girl.

PS. following!
