I have lost 7 years of weight!
Thursday, February 18, 2010
I weighed this week. I now weigh what I weighed while I was engaged to Ian in 2003 - about 6 pounds less than I weighed when we got married.
At my age (55) the scale is not moving too quickly. To keep a positive outlook. I have determined that I should measure my weight in years rather than in pounds. So my next goal is going to be a hard one. I gained alot of weight from September 2002 when I weighed 240 to April 2003 when I weighed 285. (Yes, I really gained 45 pounds in a 8 month period).
So, my next goal is to get down to my September, 2002 weight. I am hoping to lose that 8 months worth of weight in approximately 8 months. The goal after that is to get to my pregnancy weight (1982!) of 210 pounds - so the next goal will be to lose 20 years of weight.
So, this is not a perfect measurement. Sometimes I gained weight really quickly. Sometimes I would gain/lose/gain/lose/gain/lose ... for years at a time staying in that 210 to 280 pound strata. It will be interesting to see where it goes from here.
