OMG!! I can’t believe I’ve just taken my measurements!! What I believe even less, is that I’m posting them here. But, as with the rest of my story, I am going to be totally honest. I can’t begin to accept myself and the facts if I don’t face them.

I (stupidly) didn’t take my measurements when I started ‘getting it off’. But at that point, I really couldn’t face measurements. It was bad enough facing what the scales were telling me. But, 3 stone lighter (I wish to god I’d taken those measurements!) I have now faced the demon that is secondary in scare factor to the scales.. the measuring tape!

So here they are in their full, horrible, massive glory:

  • Neck: 16″
  • Bust: 50″
  • Waist: 47 1/2″
  • Hips: 54″
  • Thigh (the fattest part): 27 1/2″
  • Upper arm: 14 1/2″

At least that’s the last time I’ll see those measurements on the tape measure 🙂
