The Scariest Post Ever Made – #WAMJourney

SO here, it is, the post I’ve been dreading…It’s sad, and most of all embarrassing to put out on the internet what I weigh, what my measurements are, and how awful I look.  It’s embarrassing to admit how FAT and horrid looking I am.  I hate it, but I’m changing it!

I am COMMITTED and DETERMINED to reach my goals. If you haven’t already read about my story, see last week’s post here.

This past week, my trainer wanted me to measure. We’re on a schedule of Measure Week, Weigh Week, Measure Week. So, Saturday I got hubby to measure me, that means this coming Saturday will be weigh in day. I also got him to take a few photos of me. Which ugh, is going to be so hard to post, but I have to….

I have been doing my 2x a week boot camps, 2x a week training session at the gym, and then 1x a week with hubby at the gym just doing my own thing without my trainer. Soon, I’ll be adding in a Saturday boot camp with my trainer, so it will be a steady 6x a week working out with 1 rest day. I am LOVING this new schedule that I have, and although I have days that I wake up and don’t want to work out, I’m still doing it. Once I get there, start doing it, I’m so glad that I did.

The thing I need to work on more, is my water consumption, and my nutrition, which is something I’ll be working on this week with my trainer.

On that note, here we go…. Photos….These were taken 6/18/16…….Excuse the morning face, hair and no makeup. I seriously did this before I got dressed, or took a shower….


Measurements….Taken 6/18/16
Waist – 50.5”
Hips – 57.0”
Thighs – 29.0”
Calves – 18.5”
Neck – 16.5”
Chest – 48.0”
Biceps – 18.0”
Biceps Flexed – 19.0”
Forearms – 12.0”

The last time I weighed myself was May 26th 2016, my weight was…….241.5lbs. *Sad Face*  Since I started my Toujeo Insulin and some of my other medications, I’ve gained over 10lbs since I started them.  My goal is to get off of them completely.  I also have to find a new doctor, someone who will listen better.  I’d rather NOT be on medications that keep me gaining weight, it’s kind of counter productive to being a type 2 diabetic!

So, there you have it…..My most embarrassing post I’ve made in the past 9 years of blogging. The thing that drives me to post it though, is the progress posts I’ll be able to make after this, the hard work, the dedication and the changes I make will make this post all worth it!

Oh, and my motivation for this week…..One of my favorite WWE Women’s Superstars on the cover of Muscle & Fitness Her with some of her workouts… Picked it up on the day it was released! Goal, to be able to do her workouts soon….


Now, to finish writing this post, and to actually hit publish…..Here I go……..

    Way to go Gina!! It is very hard to just weigh yourself and take your measurements but posting it makes it VERY real and holds you accountable.
    That’s something I did as well. Before having my surgery I posted my before surgery weight on Facebook and on the Bariatric group page I’m on; out there for all to see. I didn’t want to hide from it anymore (not that I was fooling anyone 🙂 ) and I wanted a reminder for myself of where I started.
    I can very happily say that since my surgery on Oct 28, 2015 and a starting weight of 421.8 lbs, I have lost 139.6 lbs.
    It is a huge accomplishment for me but I’m not done yet and I’m still working my butt off (literally)
