Week 238

2.4lb gain

I have now returned to 14 stone - a place I haven't been since early April 2006.

I would weep, but there are other things I am weeping harder for these days. And the emotional distress never made weight control easier.

I'd decided that if I hit this mark again I would return to wearing 36" waist jeans.

On the one hand it's an obvious sign of defeat, but damn, they're so much more comfortable than the 34s

Starting Weight: 19st 9lb - 275lbs
Current Weight: 14st - 196lbs
Body fat: 27.8%
Total Weight Loss: 79lbs

Ouch. Sorry.

I hope whatever is upsetting your world resolves itself quickly, if possible, and that you have the strength to see it through.

Thanks :)

That's a pisser.

You must be tall if you can weigh 196 in 36 inch jeans. Either that or you only breathe at night.

Sorry to read you're having a tough time Kim, hope all is well with you and yours. And don't be too hard on yourself over a bit of a gain, you'll turn it around when you're in the right frame of mind again.

Don - I'm only just a shade over 5'6", but most of my height in in my body. If my legs were proportionate I'd be over 6 feet tall.

Because we carry more weight in our torso's than legs, I don't actually look as heavy as someone else my height and weight.

FMC - I keep thinking we're just at that point, and then something else happens :(

Maintaining is SO hard, especially if you are dealing with other, hard-to-cope with matters. You've had a lot on your mind and health issues that aren't easy to resolve. I'm not making excuses for you, but it is easy to understand how a little creep up in weight could happen.

It is just a reminder that some of us will have to pay attention for the rest of our lives. I'm in that category... sounds like you are too.

Sayre - my wife and I were talking about this the other night - it's a lifelong thing - we will never reach a weight and then be able to forget about it.

This blog is currently week 238. It won't stop.

Kim, it's good that even in rough times you keep posting, to be at your highest weight in 3 years must scare you, it should, but you can turn this back around

Kim Ayres said...

TTM - the number of times I've felt like not posting over the past few months has been huge. However, I've said to other people along the way I've always felt posting in the rough times is even more important than posting in the good. So I have to follow my own advice...
