Weigh in Week 52

One year.

No matter what the scale said today this was the truth:  I have weighed in weekly each week.  Every week, at Weight Watchers.  I could not always stay for the meeting, occasionally it was at a meeting that was not my normal one, sometimes I was sick, often I was grouchy, but I weighed in every week for a year.

What this says to me, far more than the weight that I have lost, is that I am determined to see this through to the end.  I am committed to making this work.  And coming off the holiday gain I had a good week.  It was not a perfect week, but it was a week where I kept at it even when I made a bad choice.  And you know what?  It showed on the scale (shocking I know!)

-8.2 Pounds

76.8 lbs Lost to Date

It isn’t a bad total for a year of work is it?  The truth is, I wanted it to be more at a year, but how can I complain about having lost over 75 pounds?  Today is a day for acknowledging just how far I have come.  I have a new community of support around my weight loss.  Between Mr. Goat and I we have lost 240 lbs this year.  My family is healthier.  I make better choices, even when I am making “bad” choices.  I am stronger.  I can run a mile.  I can run a 5k.  I have seen my commitment through every week for a year.

And case in point, my morning, aside from my weigh in, was truly awful.  If anything could go wrong it did and I was grouchy.  Really grouchy.  Eat-everything-in-sight grouchy.  But I couldn’t grab lunch until after 1pm.  So at 12:15 I tweeted my community on twitter.feelings

Over the course of the next hour a dozen tweets of encouragement came in and reminded me that eating is not a solution to my feelings.  When the time came to make my choices for lunch I made good ones – low fat turkey wrap, fruit and a side salad.  And a large iced coffee as a “treat.”  I stayed in my points, I made a good choice and I feel better now than I did this morning.  That is something I would not have done a year ago.

Sometimes the fact that I am busy changing is scary.  There is a lot of “newness” to figure out. Some of it is good – smaller clothes.  Some of it is hard – portion control.    But each part of it is worthwhile.   One year has brought amazing progress for me, and I can’t wait to see what the next year brings.  Can you even imagine the possibilities?

  1. Time flies when you are having fun!

    You are having fun .. right? 🙂

  2. Kristy Vesh says:

    Yay for you! I had my 52 week, or one year mark last week. We joined the YMCA and I can successfully say that I worked out for an entire year straight.

  3. I think I met you once @ a Sunday school thing. I recall thinking highly of the way you were then. Now I am in total awe.

  4. Your son is SO cute!

  5. Congrats on the major loss, and also on your victory of not eating your feelings on that crappy morning.

    P.S. Your son is super adorable!

  6. Great job and dedication. Commitment is often the hardest part after the newness wears off & life gets in the way. Keep it up!

  7. You are doing fabulous! A work in progress…aren’t we all!! I really enjoy reading your motivating posts. It still amazes me that you are able to lose so much in a week…that is really really amazing!!

  8. Your perseverance is admirable and just plain awesome. Happy 52 weeks! <3

  9. You are doing awesome. It’s exciting and scary all at once to think about being a new you..I have been going through that.

    Keep up the good work!

  10. Liz, that is a GREAT year’s work! Thanks for sharing the honest details with all of us. I think that, for so many people, the idea that we have to be “perfect” to be successful really gets in the way of *actual* success. The truth is that none of us is perfect — but if you can pick yourself up and keep going after a stumble, you can do some really amazing things. And that’s just what you did — over 75 pounds gone in a year is amazing (and life-changing)! You’ve done great things for yourself and your family this year — and for the many people you have inspired by sharing your journey.

  11. You are such an inspiration (I know I keep saying that, but I can’t help it).

    Thank you for sharing your journey with us!
