Hit My Goal Weight!!!! Wow

Friday, April 09, 2010

Well as of this morning. I currently weigh 160lbs. I can honestly say the last 10lbs have been the hardest, I hit a plateau for almost a year in fact. So I am thrilled with all the progress over the last few months. I can see my body changing, getting stronger, getting muscle lines I didn't have before. When I went clothes shopping for spring/summer I fit in size 8 shorts/capris in every store. I don't know why but for some reason getting to that single digit was a goal for me. So I've lost 180lbs and 91.5 inches from the places I measure. My BMI (even though I know it really isn't that accurate of a measurement went from 50.2 to now being 23.6. And I dropped from a 26/28 to a size 8.


Beginning stats Current Stats
Chest 49 36
Stomach 45 32.5
Abdomen 58.5 36
Hips 60 40
Thighs 26.5 19.25
Arms 15.5 11
Weight 340 160

I am thrilled with all my progress. This has been an amazing journey that I never in a million years thought it would end up where it did. If you have known me here on spark for awhile then you know my beginning goal was not to be 160 in the beginning. In fact it was to be able to wear a size 18 so I could fit in normal clothes. Then it dropped to being 199, I just wanted to see that 1 on the scale. Then it became to get to a normal BMI. Then it changed to 160lbs. So in my normal pattern, here we go for another goal, to hit 155. So if you see my ticker change in the next few weeks, that is why. I still think my body is capable of changing and I'd like to let it see this through to the end.


*** I'm 5'9 btw for those that were wondering, I've gotten a few spark mails asking.

    Outstanding! What an amazing accomplishment. I have really been struggling this past week, and this was just the boost I needed. To remember that yes this can be done! The fact that you were able to wait through a one year plateau shows such perseverance! And makes me realize I need to quit whining when I have a one-3 month plateau. Thank you!

    Congrats! With less than 10 lbs to go to reach my goal, I too am finding it the most difficult part of this whole process. But, I'm never giving up, no matter how long it takes. I'm already preparing my mind for maintenance and all that entails. I know how easy it would be to slip right back into old habits and become complacent, and I'm not willing to do that. It's going to take DAILY decision-making and perseverance. Not for a minute do I think I'll ever be "safe" from my food addictions...all I can do is control them day by day.

    Congratulations and thanks for being such an inspiration to all of us sparkers!

I was wondering if you changed things up - food or exercise-wise - to break through your plateau, or did you just keep on keeping on?

Good luck reaching your next goal!
