My Excitement

Alright so I've been losing weight pretty steadily since February...and by steadily I mean I plateaued when I was dating Brandon because I was eating more calories than I should have been. So really I've been losing weight from February to May then August to October. I started at a really high weight... my peak weight was 240 (oh gosh did I just admit that?!) Even at my highest weight people didn't believe me when I would tell them my weight because I "carried it well." But I've been steadily losing weight and have hit 30 pounds lost! Which is so awesome! I feel awesome. Sad news is I have 50 more pounds to get to my "normal" BMI. When I tell people that they look at me like that isn't even possible but apparently it is.

Yesterday when I hit the 30 pound mark I was thinking "I don't think I've weighed this little since high school." So I did some research and called my doctor from my senior year and asked them my weights and this is what I found.
Feb 2008-209 (What I'm at now!)
April 2008-216
June 2008- 200 (Random spike down...)
June 2009- 226 (hello college depression weight)
Nov 2011-238

I think I weighed 240 pretty steadily throughout 2011 and into 2012. Crazy that I let myself weigh that much. I know in 2010...? I did HCG and I lost a little bit of weight but then it shot back up because I couldn't starve myself. 
I just called my pediatrician from 2001-2008 and asked them my weights but those are in my paper chart so they're going to call me back later. I just want to know when I started in the 200s because I honestly don't remember.Okay they just called and the verdict is moving to Oregon made me fat...

Jan 2002-157 (five months after moving to Bend)
Oct 2002-172.5 (beginning of 7th grade and Dad madness)
May 2006-184 (friends with cars=going out to lunch)
May 2007-202 (I started dating Vince September 2006 and gained 18 pounds... I blame him)

Alright is is me at 240...

This was between 15 pounds lost

15 pounds down. My face already looks thinner right?

23 Pounds down hiking a mountain in Wyoming
28 pounds down

28 Pounds!

I'll have to take a picture tonight!  

I've been in the 200's my adult life. I feel SO awesome for finally getting it in control. As far as health issues I don't think any of them have gotten significantly better since losing the weight but I have a long way to go still. I am so proud of myself. It's been a long time coming and it makes me so happy to realize it's a realistic goal for me. Thank you to my family and friends that have encouraged me. Especially JAMIE for being my competition (even though she didn't really know it)  

This is a picture I just found on my Myspace (say what?!) and it's when I weighed 184
