So I just commented to another posted and realized I have been on program for over 3 years. WOW. I started WW October 5, 2005 at 256.4 It's funny how I can remember the exact date and weight.
I got to my lowest weight around April 2007 which was 149.8 Then I platued around 152 for a few months.
It took me around 16 months to loose 100 lbs.
Anyway, now it's going on TWO years since I saw that lowest number. In a way I feel ashamed I didn't get to my goal. Sure, I COULD HAVE but I didn't.
The plateau really hit me hard. I remember getting back up to 160. Then I slowly crept back up to 174! The past 6-8 months I've been stuck between 167 and 170.
I have 30 lbs left to lose to get to my goal of 140. I WILL DO IT in 2009. I'd like to do it by the later part of summer but as long as I do it this year I will be happy.
I just feel like it's time.
I feel motivated doing Couch to 5k now. It's a fun and motivating work out and really gets you sweating.
I also just started using e-tools to journal and I really like it. It's making me accountable for things I wasn't counting. For instance the baby carrots I took to work today would have been written down as 0 and e-tools made it .5 a point. The same with my cheerios. I would have put 2 and e-tools said nope! 2.5! Those little things add up ya know!
Anyhow, I just felt a burst of new excitement I haven't felt in a while and wanted to most.
I can't wait to finally be at goal. I also plan on working for WW when I do. Not sure about a leader but at least help do weigh-ins on the weekend! :)
For reference since a lot of people ask I started WW when I was 20. I am 23 now and I am about 5'6". My current weight is 170.
