A slap in the face

Weight gain is a progression as is obviously the loss. I have to keep reminding myself of this everytime I get on the scale and don't see any movement. I have been reading a few blogs from people on a weight loss journey and they have photos of themselves and numbers and all that good stuff. I decided to take a trip down memory lane and go back as far as my Facebook photos will allow to see the progression. It was actually pretty disturbing to me to see how I got so big. I like to think I didn't realize it at the time but I think I must have because it was hard to find full body photos of myself from about 2006-2009. Really hard. Everything was waist or chest up and even those were bad. I fluctuate in weight very quickly and that is most likely due to the extreme nature of the dieting I have been doing but just as quickly as I lose those pounds they come right back when I fall off the wagon. I am actually kind of afraid to post what I am about to put here but I know that it will help me keep referring back to this post to keep myself in line.


The first picture I will post is the weight I am actually aiming to get back to. I know it seems ridiculous to hope for your highschool weight but in my senior year I had put on a bit of weight and back then I was traumatized by it but now I think I looked amazing. The last picture is the most recent picture of me in a swimsuit in March of this year.

2003-17 years old


I couldn't find any pictures between 2004 to 2006 but clearly you can see alot changed. I may have been at my heaviest here but I am not sure.


Below(2006)



Below (2007)


At some point between 2007 and 2008 I did actually see a scale and I was 198. Not sure if that was heavier than the year before or not but I did actually start to workout at that point.


Below(2008)
Between 2008-2009 I worked out occasionally but rarely dieted. I mainted about 175-185 during most of that time.


Below (2009)


Still working out but definitely not dieting I was still in the weight range.


Below(early 2010)

In September of 2009 I started Medifast(see this) and when I started I weighed in at 173. After 6 weeks I was down to 143. Thats the picture below(October 2010)

I did great from October to January and then it went downhill


Below (NYE 2011)



I pretty much gave up on dieting and exercise for 2 months and gained almost half the weight I lost back. A couple weeks before Miami I tried Medifast and had to quit because I broke out in hives(*still not sure if that was from the food) so here is me around 155


March 2011

And this is May 2011...back around 150-155 and fighting it. I have a ways to go to get down to 135 and I am hoping this post helps.



This blog is definitely not dedicated to my journey but it is a big part of my life so I am sure there will be more posts and hopefully they will be with some good news and sexy photos!
