Well when you make proxies you need to include the entire clip from start to finish- otherwise how would timecodes ever match back to the original media? Sounds like you'll be going manual i.e. visually matching up on each cut. Ouch but shouldn't take you more than a day or so.

To be honest- there's really little point in editing proxies in 2010+ if we're not talking scanned 35mm negative or massive uncompressed HD/4K, etc. Not when most in-camera formats are relatively small and a hard drive is just an overnight FedEx away. For next time...
