Ive told this story a few times but I have a yoyo history with weight.  I was 150 for a long while but was considered sort of chunky in middle school funny thing is I didn’t know that til I lost weight somehow in high school, and everyone said yea you used to be chunky but you look so great now.  Um thanks.  For a long time in my head I considered that weight loss magic but really it was because of my extra curricular activities which all involved a lot of exercise.

After high school I gained a lot of weight and eventually balloned up to 167 pounds.  I was really upset with myself and put my foot down went to a nutrionist to learn how to eat healthy with resulted in my becoming a vegetarian, I also booked a Spring Break trip in the hopes that I would be thin by then.  It worked and I got down to 153 and looked soo good!  I even lost some more weight later (magic again I thought lol) and fit into a size 6.  I told my friends  because I was excited and they were all like omg your too skinny.  The size 6 lasted for one summer I got too relaxed in my eating and wasn’t walking as much as I was when I was on campus.

My last year in school I gained weight, when I noticed I was 10 pounds heavier I was really upset that I had undone what I had and bought a dress for graduation as a motivator to lose weight, instead I gained 2 more dress sizes and my weight balloned up to the 170s.   At that point I just sort of gave up with it and told myself I was meant to be heavy.  I bought a new wadrobe and remained like that until I didn’t fit into my new “fat” clothes and had to go out shopping for an even bigger size.  I was really upset and decided to step on a scale to see how bad it had become.  Well it was bad, I was 180 pounds.  I just stared at it in disbelief, then I thought okay so what are you going to do?  Let yourself get as heavy as Fiance who is almost a whole foot taller than you?  I mulled it over and tried to figure out what my options were.  In the end I decided to join the gym that was 5 minutes from my house.  I lost 13 pounds but then I hurt my hip and didn’t work out for months while I healed.  I was bummed but I didn’t give up.  By the time I started going back to the gym I had gained back 10 pounds.  

This time I started the weight loss slowly and made the whole thing a real routine so that when the weight goes away I wont stop doing what I am doing and itll all come back.  I let myself eat what I want and I work out.  I lose .5 to a pound every week and I really don’t mind.  There were some weeks I lost nothing and I was fine with that.  This time I really wanted to understand what it took to remain at the lower weight after a loss.  I’ve done a great job because I have been losing steadily and maintaining through the weeks I got ill.  I am a little more confident that I will be able to keep the weight off this time.  It’s actually the one thing I’ve been able to control and have been enthusiastic about this whole time I have been unemployed and dealing with being sick.  I am currently somewhere in the mid 160s which is a vast improvement over the 180 I was in January.  Everyday counts an I do my best to ensure I am sticking to a routine that I can sustain for the rest of my life.  Don’t give up!  Admitting to yourself this happend and figuring out why is all part of the journey!

@MrsDPal811:  My exes mother used to tell her very young daughter that she was fat and needed to be on a diet.  I wanted to slap her.  Its sad when these things happen. I hope you are able to resolve some things for yourself. 

I don’t have many friends either and I don’t think I could handle talking to the ones I do have about things like this!

I lost 25kg. I’m not at my lightest but I’m pretty fit and motivated. I originally lost it all using a shake diet (which taught me to eat more than 3 vegies) called Tony Ferguson. I then gained 10kg on their maintenece program as it reintroduced carbs. I then switched to Weight Watchers and have been a lifetime Member since April 2010. My Goal weight is 52kg and I’m only 155cm or 5foot 1.  I’m comfortable being around 50-51kg. I eat well, I make all my own sauces, I eat 2 – 3 pieces of fruit a day, I mainly try to eat as clean as I can. I do about 10km walking in my job – I’m a high school teacher, it’s rare I sit down during a class. I mountain climb. mountain bike (cross country), run and do a daily workout from Jillian Michaels DVD or Zuzana Light on Youtube. I used to do Bodyrock but I’m not a fan anymore.

Before: around 75kg if not more.

I joined Tumblr because they have a great weight loss/fitness community and it provided me the motivation I needed to keep going on there. My followers made me feel held accountable for working out and eating healthy each day. It gets easier the longer you stick with it. Just remember how amazing you feel when you make healthy choices and try to keep with it.

I keep a fitness journal (personally, I like the Moleskin ones) and I write down everything I eat. I also write down what times I’m hungry and when it’s just a craving, I write myself daily, weekly and monthly goals, I have pages for motivation and inspiration, and I track my exercise too. It’s been helpful for me, and really makes me think about my food intake and physical output. 

So far, I’ve gone from 183.3 lbs to 171.8, and I’m having trouble breaking through the 170 area, but now I can look back and see where I’m going wrong, and how I can amp things up. It’s a good way to stay accountable to yourself and look introspectively theoughout your weight loss journey.

@MrsDPal811:  Thanks, it’s been hard work but it has paid off.

 

Drink lots of water is my tip for losing weight! Calories in = calories out.

Its ok! Focus on the present. Don’t beat yourself up for the past. You’ve already made good choices and that is who are you now. You can do this!

@MrsDPal811:  If you still want something carbonated, drink soda water. It’s calorie free and really refreshing, especially if you’re not a fan of still water.
