Starting weight 372 lbs. on 12/5/11 I'm in week 13
last weeks weight 324.6
This weeks weight 321.2!!!!
Loss of 3.4 lbs for the week Total loss of 51!
I am SO HAPPY that weight came off! Whew! I'm happy with this loss. I know that it didn't come on overnight, so it won't leave overnight. I have to keep telling myself that me being heavy was over 25 years in the making so taking 2 years to take it off is really no big deal. But over 50lbs! I'm now over a 1/4 of the way of where I want to be eventually. I don't know where I want to end up. Is that strange? I don't know how much I want to weigh. I told my Dr. it wasn't about a number, it was more of a feeling. But now I wonder if I'm concentrating to much on numbers. I just want to feel good, I want to fly without being anxious about fitting in the seat. I want to ride amusement park rides with my kids. I want to snow ski again. Where is that? I don't think I would be comfortable being a size 6 or 8. I think I'm more of a size 12 girl. Maybe even a 14. How do we know where we want to stop? How did you know where you want to be? Or when you got there? Has anyone ever said, "I want to be 160 lbs" but then you get to 180 and then say, oh, that's enough. I think I look fine. Is that a cop out? Do I need to push myself to a certain weight? I'm I cutting myself short? I keep hearing that at my height an "ideal" weight is 129. Wow, that number freaks me out! That's 243 lbs I'd have to of lost! I don't think I want to do that, not can't but want. I do know that I am going to celebrate all of my losses. I have set it so that for every 25lbs I get a new charm for my bracelet. So I'm going shopping today to add to it! Have a great day all!
