Weight is a very sensitive subject, especially with women. However, I must share some private things and get things out there. Since not too many people read my blog, I figure I can drop info here...
*deep breath* Here we go.....
In January of 2010, when I started PT school, I toggled around the line of 400 pounds. It was the highest I'd ever been in life.
Right before I gave birth to Pooka, I was about 360 pounds. I was about 290 before I got pregnant. Yep! Gained 70 pounds!
I managed to get down to about 312 around the time I broke up with Pooka's dad, I was hitting the trails faithfully, and couldn't afford to really eat much of anything (another blog in and of itself), but I gained it all back, plus some, when I was done mourning the relationship and my financial status improved.
When I graduated high school I was between 250-260. I remember when I was dating Pooka's father I specifically told him, "If I ever got up to 300, slap me!" I was pregnant when that happened so he didn't follow through, LOL! (Not that he would have if I wasn't, he isn't the violent type)
My highest weight to date on July 19th 2014 is below *sigh*
September 2, 2014. The day I already blogged about. I weighed in at 433.3 pounds!
ANYWAYSSSSSSSS.....I have been getting my weight and pressure right since September 2nd using the old fashion eat right and exercise method. (I know, super slow and boring) I have also been keeping a food log which I knew from past experiences worked for me.
So let's fast forward to today. At my main PT job, the scales go up to 400 pounds. So I could never weight myself at that gig. I have been doing well since September and today when I walked past the room with a scale, I said to myself..."Oh F it, see what happens." I saw this.....
OMG!!!!! Did numbers actually show up on the scale at work? Am I really under 400 pounds? AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH! I am sooooo excited!!!!!!!
Yes, I realize I have a long way to go, but this is so encouraging to my soul! That is 37.8 pounds down from my highest weight ever! It may not seem like a lot, but seeing those numbers mean the world to me. It's like I am a human, not a piece of freight material that requires a special scale to be weighed!
Today is a good day! I knew this time would be different. I could feel it! Down in my gut I know that I will go all the way. I will not share what my long term goal weight is right now. Just know that it's gonna take me awhile to get there!
This is it! No more yo yo'ing! No more 400+ pounds.....ever.....EVER again! I have officially dropped out of the 4 dollar club for good! I am claiming that! Amen!
I just had to get that out my system, and I am not sharing numbers on FB nor telling the people around me where I started or how much I have lost until I reach a certain number :)
I can't wait until the day I can post up my transformation video! *cheese*
Now back to your regularly scheduled program!
