Weights And Ages At Those Weights

Sunday, July 21, 2013

Most of these weights were taken in school during health exams in P.E.

5- Starting getting fat. No known weight.

6 - When I started noticing I was bigger than everyone else. (My son is going to be 6 in about 6 days, and I'm so thankful that he is always one of the smallest of his peers. I always make sure he is age, weight, and height proportionate and have taught him to like healthy food. He also loves to exercise. I even got him a boxing bag+ gloves, a soccer ball, and little 1 lb weights. He likes to do yoga sometimes, and he does fitness dvds with me (or by himself if I'm being lazy or already worked out that day). Being overweight or obese runs in my family and I vowed to not let my kid go through that.) No known weight for myself at this age.

9 or 10? - not sure how old I was, but it's around there. I was 135. My brother who is about to enter 4th grade, is about 70 - 80 lbs. That sounds a teeny bit big, but he's not actually fat at all. He's kind of tall and is built like a basketball player.

12- around 145 lbs (had lost a lot of weight right before this weighing, though I'm not sure how much bigger I was, due to an eating disorder)

13 - 202 lbs. This is my post pregnancy weight. (rape and all that depressing crap... don't ask or comment about this please....)

15 - 9th Grade- 225 lbs. Me and my twin sister were the same weight up until a bit after this. We started moving around a lot.. Change and the presence of other people, let alone new people, stress me out to the point of I-want-to-die depression.. I also have paranoia issues, which doesn't help.

17- 274 lbs. I was in my first attempt at weight loss here. I got down to about 220 lbs in 3 months or so.

Okay, my heighest weight is at 19. I was 322. At 18 I moved around a lot again. My family was briefly in a homeless shelter and I hated life. This caused depression and another suicide attempt (first one at 14), which put me on psych meds again, which caused my weight to balloon.

Currently still 19. I weigh about 301 as of my last official weigh in.

So, I just wanted to write this down because I always see people say "I'm lighter than I was in highschool" or "I'm lighter than I was when I was ___ years old!" So, I know I may forget how old I was at certain weights by time I hit goal. I barely remember as it is. I like to compare things, so I definitely want to be able to say I weigh less than I did in 3rd or 4th grade. 120 is my UGW (ultimate goal weight).

    I am very proud of your statements and the candor of your report. You can do it. When I joined spark the same time you did with this class- I went way overboard and got burned out. maybe that is what motivates you-if that works do it.

This time however I am focusing more and going at a normal balanced pace, so far I feel comfortable.
you are motivating thanks. emoticon

    I wrote down a list of things that were physically impossible unless I lost weight. Little things like crossing my legs, the hole my wristwatch strap was on, walking up steps etc, for much the same reason. Things move so gradually that we forget where we came from. I hope you see great things as you lose the weight, and hopefully gain in confidence.

    I was 77 pounds some time in 4th grade. i'm a girl and I wasn't fat at all so I think your brother is in the normal range.

You have had a lot of struggles and things to overcome you can do this too!
