At My Lowest....(weight that is!!!!)

Sunday, April 29, 2012

Last night, as motivation to continue my weight loss, as well as in preparation for an upcoming vacation, I bought a two-piece bikini. I haven't worn a two piece bathing suit since I was like 6 lol. Then, today, I weighed in at my lowest in my adult life (163.8). I wore a size 18-20 from about 6th grade until 11th grade. In high school, I was always around 200-210 lbs. At the end of my 11th grade year, I lost about 20 pounds during a summer program and kept it off during senior year (I wore XL's (16-18s) during that time, even though I wore a size 14 dress to the prom). Then I gained like 40 pounds during college. I weighed between 215 and 225 from then on out and was 222 when I started Spark. When I did my first major weight lost change through SparkPeople, my goal was 165...and I fluctuated between 164-165 for a long time. Last year, I let some old habits come back and had gotten all the way up to 174 as recently as January 2012. I've been slowly getting on track...and cut out sodas for Lent in February. Since Easter, I've been working very diligently to track my food and to exercise. I'm soooo pleased with the results.

    emoticon I am currently where you USED to be. Keep up the excellent work. You are a motivation to me to keep pushing myself. I lost about a yr ago & I have slowly gained all but about 6lbs back. So I too am back trying to get control again.

emoticon I don't know if I ever was in a bikini, but just being able to get into a swim suit WITHOUT shorts would be sweet enough!!!

Blessing to you on your journey emoticon
