Happy First Anniversary to my changed life!
It seems like such a long time ago and also just like yesterday.
This time last year, I started out tracking my food, working out an exercise plan and writing about my journey to lose weight. I was excited and scared but I was determined!
Taking a long view of my first year*
Starting weight 3 January 2011: 140.9 kg (310 lbs)
Today’s weight 3 January 2012: 99.7 kg (218.5 lbs)
Total weight lost: 41.6 kg (91.5 lbs)
% starting weight lost: 29.5%
Measurements January 2011: Bust 130cm, Waist 137 cm, Hips 141 cm
Measurements January 2012: Bust 108cm, Waist 109 cm, Hips 121 cm
It was such a big year. I still have a long way to go but I am over half way to my goal weight. I am a smaller size now then when I left school in 1992. Things have certainly changed for the better around here 🙂 And I have really enjoyed writing about it and will continue to do so.
Here is to the second year, continued health, strength and improved fitness.
* My lowest weight was 95kg at the beginning of December. December was a bad month for me – there was alot of stress and I ate to cope. So, I am back up a little. But I stayed under 100kg and I am happy about that. Now is not the time to fret about the gain. I can learn from the poor stress management but it is time to look forward.
