my "ideal" weight

Sunday, September 13, 2009

It was about a year ago that I went to the dietician regarding some stomach problems I was having, seeking help going gluten-free. It was that visit that I "found out" that my ideal weight was 140, 66 lbs less than what I weighed. Strange thing was that the nutritionist didn't even talk to me about weight at all. My doctor hadn't said anything for years. I wonder if they just give up talking to people about it? Anyway, when I got my clinic notes the dietician had wrote in there that my ideal weight would be 140. When I read it I guess I just decided "well, I should get there then". Sometimes it is a simple thing that makes you take the big plunge!

This week I hit my "ideal" weight. I have reset my goal to be a bit lower, since there are still some jiggly bits that I would like to trim down. Therefore I am not "done". I had lost down close to my ideal about 8 years ago and afterwards proclaimed myself done and proceeded to gain back the 30 I had lost plus 20 or so more over the years. So now I understand I will never be "done". The change in exercise and eating habits is not something I can just toss aside when I hit a goal. I have to keep it up, just constantly modifying them depending if I am trying to get more fit, lose more weight, or just maintain a healthy body.

I hope I always keep in mind now my "ideal" weight. I don't want to have to be reminded again, or worse, be so far away from it the medical professionals won't even mention it to me.
