Will You Weigh In?

Healthy living is not just about numbers, but let’s face it.  When you have as much weight to lose as I do, the numbers matter.  No, they’re not everything, but they do matter (at least to me.)

It’s easy to get bogged down by our imperfections and how far we have to go, but let’s put that aside today and have some fun.  If you’re reading this and you’re comfortable sharing, then please share with us today…

How much weight have you lost?

 

I’ve lost over 100 so far, and I’ve added  to that number since I started counting calories almost two months ago.  I’ll weigh-in tonight and tally my numbers along with yours, then I’ll share the total in an upcoming post.  And if you want to expound on your weight-loss and how it has affected your life, then go for it!  I’d love to hear that too.

Some of us have a long way to go, but today let’s focus on how far we’ve come.

    I’ve only lost 22 since January, but I’m down three sizes and now realize I was feeding myself so guys wouldn’t think about me sexually. Now I know that every pound I gained was more power the person who hurt me as a teen had over me. I’m claiming my life back.

      My goal weight is 170ish. I’m only 5’2 and I realize that is still considered obese on the BMI chart but at 198 I’m wearing a size 16/18. I just want to feel healthy and normal. Good luck with tour personal struggles, folks! 🙂

    Started at 283, currently 169, so right around 114lbs…still feels like a lifetime to go, but I think for my height, another 40lbs should do it.

    I’m down a “whopping” 28.6 since October… I had two major backslides in there were I basically gained back almost everything I lost. Ugh. Hoping to make 30 pounds by the end of the month.

    This is my second go round- I lost 64 pounds before and then just quit paying attention and gained it all back. Not doing that again this time! I’ve got about 70 pounds more to lose. I say about because I’m not positive what the scale will say when I decide I’m pleased with my body and fitness.

    Only 12 pounds…but weight loss really isn’t my goal. It will be a byproduct of training. The “goal” is to run in the Tower of Terror 10 mile run as well as the Disney Wine and Dine half marathon. By that time, I should have lost another 20 pounds to get me around 208.

    I started at 243 and I’m down…75 pounds! While I know that’s “my” number…it doesn’t feel real to me sometimes. This is the lowest I’ve ever weighed in my adult life. It’s all very surreal. Right now I don’t have a goal weight, but I need to lose 100 to put me in a healthy weight range, so I’m going to get there and see how I feel 🙂

    Hey Kenlie,
    I don’t respond much, I just sit quietly and read your posts but this one I am actually very very proud of so I will post 🙂 in the summer of 2009 I took my then 11 year old daughter to the fair and when she asked, me to go on the ferris wheel with her they could BARELY close the bar in front of me. I knew if I even gained another 5 pounds I wouldnt’ fit anymore, and i was NOT missing out on cool kid stuff with my daughter so I got healthy. I didn’t diet or join a gym, I started eating healthy, walking, using my eliptical. That day on the Ferris wheel was 330lbs. Now, I am 190 lbs, So I have lost 140 lbs. The ideal weight for my height is between 160 and 180 (I’m 5’11). I wants to be 165 eventually. I still have 25 more pounds to go. 165 would be exactly HALF of what I was before 🙂

      Wendy, is it possible the 3 miles 5 times a week is helping you build muscle? Don’t be discouraged by the scale. Just keep working at diet, exercise and lifestyle changes. It might also be worth a doctor check up to make sure nothing else is going on. Good luck on your journey.

          Don’t measure every week, then. I started doing it once a month. I was pleased to learn I’d worked off 0.1% of my body fat. It’s a teeny tiny amount, but at least it’s going down.

          It’s important to remember that none of us are overweight because we love and value ourselves. Feeding the scale monster just gives us more reasons to beat ourselves up. Try not to let yourself become discouraged. Just work one day at a time – it’s the most I can deal with, anyway. Today I’ll do this and this for myself, and I won’t beat myself up for what isn’t done. There’s just no point in that, and it ends up doing us more damage. Nevermind about yesterday, nevermind about tomorrow, nevermind about the 100lbs I need to lose…. just work on today, whatever day that is. Email me if you want some extra support 🙂

            tabby you have no idea how much i needed your comments! i have had the worest damn day. i went to walmart and was strolling through books and saw bob harper’s newest one. well flipping through i see this statement about even if you walk (i believe it said ) four hours a day your only burning the calories amount of a small order of fries….likebarely four hundred calories! what a punch in the face!
            then a while later in another section of the store some lady literally rammed me with her cart. i gasped and jerked around and she made the comment if i wasnt so fat she could have gotten around me.
            i just …..well i feel so humilated and ashamed and just like why bother?
            i know this wasn’t a result of loving myself. i know it is more than just a over night deal……but somedays are just q monster

        Wendy, I’m sorry about the insensitive person in Walmart. The thing about walking off a small serving of fries is that you’re still walking off something! And then, don’t eat the fries. 😉 Easier said than done. When I weighed 367 I found writing down every single thing I put in my mouth, including vitamins, liquids etc helped me to be accountable to myself. It also helped to write down how I felt after eating – be it immediately or a couple of hours later. Did I feel tired? Did I have a headache? I found that when I weighed my biggest there was a disconnect between my brain and my body. I didn’t want to know how I felt, but my body was telling me all the time – “you have a headache because you ate too much fat and your liver is struggling to process it”; “you have a headache because you are allergic to some of those ingredients”; “you are tired because you are allergic to those ingredients”; “you have painful PMS symptoms because you’re not eating enough leafy green vegetables!”, etc.

        It takes a while to break the addictive qualities of eating too much fat, salt and sugar, but once you do you feel so much better. At least, I did. And once you put some distance between yourself and your last serving of fast food, the next time you eat it, you can taste the chemicals/processedness of it. Keep walking, write down all the food you eat (for yourself, not for other people) and think about what you’re eating as you eat it. How does it taste? How does it make you feel? What else is going on while you’re eating? Maybe this is too much to take in, but it’s all worth thinking about. Possibly you’ll be able to integrate these things as you progress.

        But don’t quit walking because Bob Harper says it only works off a few calories. It also speeds up your metabolism and blood circulation, moves out swelling and strengthens your heart. The more you do it, the more you will want to do it, even if you don’t feel that yet. Don’t believe what a stranger says about you. You know you. This is worth doing because your life has value and will be too short if you don’t make the effort to get up and walk every day. Believe me, I know where you’re coming from. I’m here for you.

I love exercise, but the food part is harder for me. I don’t care for fast food, but I do like junk food..and remembering how it makes me feel makes it so much less appealing.

    I initially lost 140 pounds, I started at 290 and right about the time I started law school I was down to 150. I was content at 150 and began to fall off the wagon, I have put on a taken off the same 20 pounds for the past year. I easily gain weight and I can easily take it off again. I’m happy with myself but I would really like to get down to my goal weight of 135. I still work out almost everyday but I have fallen back in love with the foods that I didn’t allow myself to have for so long. I’m working on being better about moderation and allowing myself things sometimes and not being completely restrictive. I tend to binge if I allow myself an off day.

    Well, my weight went down and i changed a lot of stuff (food and exercise) and then I started building muscle in and my weight went back up – so I’ve lost around 40 lbs of fat and gained about 15 in muscle. Who knows. I hope one day the muscle will edge out the fat. I still have a lot of weight to lose – 100lbs or so, but I’ve lost two dress sizes since Jan 2010.

    I don’t have a scale here since moving to Rwanda, but last I checked back in March it was 70 pounds, and I know I’m lighter now than I was then because of how my clothes are fitting. Just installed a climbing hang board above my bathroom door and will be at 20 chin ups within the year, so these days I’m making an effort in strength and conditioning to get the “V” shape I’ve always wanted! 🙂

    My highest “recorded” weight was 422 in August of 2010. (My weight when I moved here in 2003 was 343 so I feel like I am peeling back decades of damage (and binge eating) with every pound I drop!)

    At the moment I am down 71. (351) I was down in the 40’s but life has been stressful! I am 5″8 and a size 26 in jeans. I feel like I am regrouping enough to get back on it, plus I have a tendon injury, so I have not been in the gym as much as I’d like – I am walking a lot.

    It’s hard, but I try to remind myself that every pound I keep off is a win … and not gaining is a win. The 10 pounds I’ve picked up since January are so lame … but I have to get back up and fight.

    I traveled on United Airlines this weekend and it was not “fun”, but it was totally doable. (The regular plane (2 seats on one side and 3 on the other) was cool and my seat-belt buckled without and extender and a shared a seat with some guy with no issue and arm-rests down!)

    Everyone was really nice to me so awesome.

    Most of the way I had a single seat on those tiny express commuter jets (where you *have to* check your small rolly-bag at the gate) … with solid arm-rests that don’t move at all and considerably smaller seats than the other plane… and I fit!) Yay!

    The best thing about my loss so far … regaining my mobility! I love it. I was at a point where rock star parking was not good enough. Where simply walking 5 feet to a door was painful and I avoiding walking in groups for fear of being embarrassed for being so slow and having to stop all the time or pouring sweat.

    I’ve spent a long time being fat … today I actually had a moment that I was grateful for being fat. I think it’s actually made me a better person. I am so much more understanding with other people and powerful for having to work through this.

    My goal is to be around 200/220 pounds – this was my weight from around 13-21. At the time in my head I felt like I did at my heaviest.

    I really appreciate that old body and realize how really OK I felt once I hit 220. Anything under that is frosting! I just want to love my body and make it last.

    My dad just turned 87! I feel like that’s also given me an appreciation of what it takes to get a human body to 87.

    Of course I want to look cute still … but cute is changing for me and I want to be strong more than I care about being cute. All the people in my life now think I am cute now, so I should too.

    XOXO,
    Nina

      wow Nina, i just came back to read the comments from yesterday and you sound like an amazingly strong woman. Thanks for sharing your story. When I was at my heaviest I was in a size 24 jeans (only one size smaller than you) and now, 2 or 3years later (I don’t remember when I started) I am in a size 14. With your passion Nina I know you will do this 🙂 Chin up girl!

        Woot! That is awesome. Yes I would totally love to get to be anywhere from a 12-18. At this point I just don’t want to be limited. I don’t want to starve either. I want to be healthy and happy and get to a place where I never feel that food is evil. I had an almost life-long binge-eating disorder … I’ve only been in recovery since around 2010 … something just clicked. I still sometimes relapse … but it’s more like a handful of times a year vs every meal was the last binge. I still sometimes make “bad” choices with my meals, but I don’t binge – so I try to be kind to myself. It’s a process for sure.

      Wow, Nina. More power to you. You ARE a strong woman. Strong can be attractive, too! 🙂 Apart from anything else, it means you have more depth and life experience. Keep up the good work and don’t beat yourself up when you have “bad” days. Just keep moving forward. You’re an inspiration to me.

    well i have not lost as much as everyone else but i am on my way
    in february i was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes and i am learning
    why i was so ravenously hungry over the last several years, what foods to and not to go near. i know they say you can pretty much eat anything just portion it out and swap carbs (which i still have so much to learn about)
    but for me i need to just stay away from certain things.
    so far for me i have 11 pounds gone …so many more to go….
    hey this would make a great blog post on my blog…hmm
    happy , healthy eating everyone!

      Hi Mary,

      If i can make a recommendation, get hold of a copy of How to Prevent and Treat Diabetes with Natural Medicine by Drs Michael Murray and Michael Lyons. It’s a great reference and really helpful and easy to read. Eleven pounds is a fantastic beginning. Keep it up!

    I’m down 25 lbs. It has taken me 2 years to lose this amount because I keep sabotaging myself. I let the stresses in my life bring me back to old bad eating habits.

    I still have another 75 lbs to go to reach my ideal weight.

    I reached my goal of losing 101 pounds last September and have since regained 30 of those hard to lose pounds back. I’m fighting to get control and get back to my goal weight. It is a never ending battle and as hard as it is to lose it is even harder to maintain. I’m not giving up or giving in and will continue to fight for my heath. Rock on!

    I’ve lost 180! Very happy about that and very happy with my current weight and I would eventually like to lose another 40 pounds (I started at just over 400). But I’m learning to let things happen as they happen rather than trying to push super hard to reach my goal and then stopping to let it all come back. Which is what has always happened to me in the past.

    Since last July I’ve lost 54 lbs. I had hit my all time high and my health was starting to really take a beating. In January I was diagnosed with Type II Diabetes. I’m learning this whole new way of life and since I still have a child at home-I’m never going back because I need to be around to raise him!

    I’m now a 26 pant, with some 24s depending on the store. I am going to be SO freakin’ happy when I get to be a 24 and can shop in stores like Macys. I’m 5’6″

    46lbs down since March 3rd. For my first goal I have 54 lbs till I reach 100lbs gone. After that I hope to drop another 40.

    When the goal seems so far away…I always weigh myself and remind myself of how far I’ve come AND I come here and read each and every post and comment. This is my lifeline.

    Wow, all these great weight loss successes are so inspiring. You guys rock! May 1st, I started counting my calories and tracking every.single.bite. So far, so good. Today is Day 26 of eating 1600 calories or less with no slip ups. I’ve lost 15 lbs so far, but still have close to 235 more pounds to go. I’m on my way.
