My last meeting was 5/10/06 and my weight was 220.6 lb.

Tonight (12/28/06) I weighed in at 252.6 lb. I gained 32 lb in 7 months. Granted, part of that time I was dealing with various issues, running up to Albany for my aunt, that sort of thing.

Time to get back on track.

Someone on the Weight Watchers board just asked: I am wondering..Why am I really overweight? Why has this been a battle since high school? Besides the fact that I just cant focus and dont exercise, is there a deeper reason? Does anyone know what their issue is and how do you think you can overcome that?

Here's my response:

Genetics (including a dose of hypothyroidism) didn't help, so I realize I'm not going to be a size 2 even if I didn't have an ounce of fat. I just have to work at getting as healthy as possible.

Lack of activity didn't help, so I have to haul my lazy behind to the gym and other activities.

Not thinking about *what* I was is eating didn't help, so I have to watch what I eat and how much of it. (grant you, it also means at times I decide to get the fillet mignon, baked potato, and dessert... but that is a decision I now make with more of a clue).

Not thinking about *why* I was eating didn't help, so I have to ask myself if I'm really hungry or if something else is going on.

Believing one is just fat and ugly and that's that didn't help, so I have to have discussions with those personal demons and sometimes get validation from outside sources (but I know it's hard to listen to them at times too).

I just checked and my last catch up was in January!

Ok...

At my lowest I was at 212.6 lbs (-60.2 lbs total). If I can keep this trend then I'll match that and surpass it soon.

So I can see more of the change of Early Before, to Before, to After. I look more like I did in 1998 now than I did back in 2003, so I'm not sure, but I think I gained a good deal of weight after college (maybe about 40 lbs).

I put all the pics in my Random Pics gallery.

Some highlights:
1998- I'm about 250 lbs here.
1999 (with short hair)
2000?
Purpura and I 2001
2002
2003- this is a picture that I have in print at my desk. I have to be up to about 260 or 270 lbs.

I have to find pics from 2004. I know that [livejournal.com profile] marnen has one from a week or two after I started WW (and had lost only 10 lbs, so down to about 260 lbs), but I have to find it to upload it.

2005

and the most recent in that gallery (1/2006) (although my most recent posted pic is this one in another gallery).

At my last update (12/22/05), I was 212.6.
On 12/29/05, I was at 216.4 (up 3.8, but considering it was after Xmas/Chanukah/Yule, isn't all that bad).

Last night (after 2 weeks of not weighing in), I was at 215.6, which is down .8 lb.

Not bad for not tracking, Godiva chocolate, and a salt craving from hell.

I also went bra shopping. My boobs have gotten smaller! I was a 42 D/DD, and now I'm a 40 C. I was a 38 C for a while (and insisted that I was still one until [livejournal.com profile] chickipu_no_oni smacked me upside the head and had me try different bra sizes).

I've been managing to hit the gym at least twice a week, and usually 3, and sometimes 4 times a week. Tuesdays is my main night, where I go to a cardio-kickboxing class (low impact for me), then the Group Power strength training class. I think I can discern a small shaping difference in my upper arms, but I'm not completely sure.

I've started tracking again. I wasn't sure if I'd get to the gym this weekend (I'm going up to Albany for Friday and Saturday and Sunday I have a Rebekahs initiation down here) so I went last night.

My Last Weigh In was a cause of some emotional concern for me (although I knew where it came from...), because I let the numbers get me down...

but "This too shall pass"

my WI this past Thursday gave me other news... I had made up the 4.4 I gained and added another pound for a 5.4 loss and put me back over the 60 pound loss mark (60.2 lb to be exact).

I hit the gym last night, and tonight my plan is to go to both a Cardio-Kickboxing class and the Group Power weight training class.
