The Weigh in

Today is my official weigh in day. I weighed in at 227.2. In January 2012, I weighed 213.4, which is a gain of 13.8 lbs. in 2012. Unfortunately, I had already gained some weight at that point. My lowest official weigh in was December 2011 at 201.3 lbs. I am 25.9 lbs. above my lowest weight. I have kept off 61 of 86.7 lbs. lost.

This will be the last time I mention where I was before—until I get there again! I am starting new, like I haven’t lost anything yet.

Right now, I am focusing on eating right and staying within my points. Boot camp starts next week, and I will be more dedicated to exercise with the start of that eight week program.

I am continuing to follow WW because it seems like a program I can stick with. My problem has been sticking with it. I have been lacking the mental piece of the puzzle and I want to do better about that again.

I’m still thinking about what I want to accomplish this year. Do I want to run a 10K? Do I want to just focus on getting the weight off without putting too much pressure on myself with “training”? What is it that I want to accomplish this year? What specific goals do I want to set? Still thinking about it.

I know there are quite a few of us beginning again, or starting new, with this new year. Good luck to all of you, whether you’re just beginning or continuing on! I applaud all of you who had a good year and those of you who maintained. Keep it up!

May 2013 be our year!

  2. I weighed this morning, and it was my heaviest weight ever... to top the heaviest weight ever I saw on Saturday. Blah. Re-losing STINKS, but it must be done to get to a new low. I'm dreading it but looking forward to it all at the same time if that makes any sense...
