|At 309 lbs, I was not too interested in getting in front of any cameras.|
Anytime my photo was taken, the results were very painful to look at.
I am camera-shy no more. I am proud of my accomplishment. The day that I get down to 219 will be the first time that I have been there since the mid 1980's. That was 30 years ago! Around that time, approximately 1985, I was actually down to 199 lbs (for about five minutes) This time, my goal is to get to 195 lbs and stay there. Even after losing 75 lbs since December 24, 2014 - I still have nearly 40 lbs to go. I am on my way - nothing will stop me.
On Saturday when I weighed myself, I admit I was disappointed that my weight loss was only 2 lbs for the week. It makes me nervous when I have eaten so little and only two pounds were shed. I know that there are other factors at work. I think that each week my body is desperately trying to hold onto its fat cells as much as possible as the caloric intake is still so low. However, when I review the chart of my progress over the last three months - I must also admit that my results have been in practically a straight line downward. I have only weighed myself once per week over these past three months. So, I never had the unfortunate situation where I have seen my weight bounce up a pound or two from one day to the other. I know that this can happen - but I have negated it from happening by weighing myself only once every seven days. I take much joy in reviewing this ski slope chart of my success.
