I realized today that I weigh less right now than I did when I got married, which is kind of cool, since I celebrated my 12th anniversary this year. Is it weird that I remember how much I weighed when I got married? I also remember how much I weighed at other points in my life, and thought it would be interesting to write them down and see how my weight has changed over the years.
125 lbs September 1993 – high school graduation (for some reason our school used to have the ceremony in September)
118 lbs May 1994 – I met my husband
135 lbs February 1997 – on vacation in Barbados
152 lbs May 1998 – I got married
171 lbs January 2001 – walked the Disney Marathon with Joints in Motion
188 lbs November 2002 – my heaviest ever (not counting pregnancy weight)
163 lbs February 2003 – on vacation in South Africa
164 lbs July 2003 – pre-pregnancy weight
215 lbs April 2004 – my most pregnant
159 lbs May 2008 – before vacation in Italy
163 lbs September 2008 – at the start of my first year of Dentistry
180 lbs May 2009 – after gaining weight my first year of dental school
170 lbs September 2009 – at the start of my second year of Dentistry, when I first started working out with my trainer
168 lbs December 2009 – just before Christmas, when I started working with my nutritionist
148 1/2 lbs August 11, 2010 – Sorry, I don’t have a picture from today, but to the left is one from a couple of months ago. I’ve lost another 5 lbs or so since then.
My target is 130 lbs, which is sort of arbitrary, but puts me into a so-called healthy weight range for my height (5’3″). I’m thinking it will take me another 18 weeks (1 lb per week) at least to get to this number, and I’m good with that. At least now I feel like I have the habits to get me there: healthy eating and working out regularly.
Do you remember your weight at any particular point in time? Do you remember your highest/lowest? Or do you avoid the scale and go by how you feel and how your clothes fit?
22k tomorrow afternoon. Wow, have I ever come a long way from running 2 minutes at a time!
P.S. I can’t believe I’m putting my weight out there on the internet. Feeling bold – haha!
