Well, I'm finally back down to my 2009 weight!

Friday, May 03, 2013

In the summer of 2009 I had been on a steady course of losing weight and getting more healthy. I had gone from 256 to 172 and If, at that time you would have told me that I was going to be there only for a fleeting moment and that it would take me 4 years before I would be back into the 170's, I would have laughed. I remember feeling pretty cocky and sure that I "had a handle" on my weight problems. I did get down to 172 before thinking that "maybe I didn't need my tops weight loss support group after all" and quit the group before gaining 20 1/2 lbs in one and a half months.. and going on to go up to 205 before I gained control and slowly started to lose again. Four years later, here I am 15 1/2 lbs from my goal, but, not feeling so cocky and realising this is a struggle for life, and I know I need my support group, both here and at my tops group in order to get help when I am having rough food days.

    I doubt I will ever be able to maintain my weight unless I track my food and exercise every day. It is a small price to pay to feel healthy.
