My Chunky Journey

VSG Surgery on September 7th, 2016

Officially on a new journey!


If I am really going to do this.  Like really do this (and I totally am).  Then I need to be 100% honest with myself and everyone else.  That is why I decided to post my stats and pictures as I move along this weight loss journey of bullshit.  As I like to call it.

So it all started at the end of January 2011 a few days after I got home from work in Hawaii.  I went to my first weight watchers meeting and realized I was the heaviest I have ever 15lbs.

The Beginning
January 24,2011
Weight: 314.8lbs
BMI: 49.3

I look like a big tomato.
This is where the name Beautiful Chunk came from.
Because I think I'm the cutest fat chick you will ever see!  :)
But this is a really ugly pic..

I like to think of that day as the day that changed my life forever.  No more excuses.  No more "but I'm still athletic and healthy!" No more giving up.

From time to time I will update this page with recent pictures and my stats so that we can see my journey towards beautiful with less chunk.

August 15, 2011
Weight: 272.4lbs
