Weight Loss Progress
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

In 1999, I lost 70 pounds. By November 29, 2009 I had gained back the 70 pounds I lost in 1999 along with a 55 pound bonus. Most of my major weight losses have been in years ending in 9. I hope to repeat this history of successful weight losses during 2009 / 2010. I am determined to loose 10+ pounds by the end of 2009, and an additional 140 pounds or so by the end of 2011.

The last two weeks have not been good from a weight perspective. After loosing only 2 pounds in the first two weeks since starting my weight loss, my weight loss for the third, and fourth weeks was zero. Unfortunately, the pitiful result is I only lost 2 pounds between July 1, 2009, and July 29, 2009. This performance, or more accurately lack of performance, is totally unacceptable. I should have lost at least 10 pounds, not 2. In the past, this lack of progress would have caused me to give up, but not this time. For many reasons, (quality of life, minimizing age related health problems) I have to loose a minimum of 120 pounds. I will accomplish the 120 pound loss by the end of 2010.

Although I felt very positive about starting my weight loss on July 1, 2009, I am disappointed that I only lost 2 pounds by July 15, 2009. I did loose 5 pounds in the first week, but as usual, I gained 3 pounds back the second week. In the past, I would have given up, and just continued with my usual, "anti-weight loss" eating habits. Not this time - I will not allow myself to fail again, I will loose 100+ pounds. I must loose substantial weight for both my overall quality of life, and my overall health. I am in my 60's when health issues can be common; all those extra pounds I am now carrying will just compound the normal age related health problems many experience. I know I will falter in the future, and have some bad days from an eating perspective, but I will succeed in my goal of loosing over 100 pounds. I know it will not be easy; however, I will succeed. It may take longer than I like, but I will loose the 100+ pounds I need to loose for many reasons.

I am embarrassed to say that today I am 116 pounds heavier than I was in August 1999 when I went on vacation. This amount of weight gain is absolutely ridiculous as well as unhealthy. I have finally had it, and am starting a major weight loss today with a goal of loosing 140 pounds or so by the end of 2010 with a minimum of 50 of those pounds gone by the end of 2009. I will not allow the failures of past weight loss tries to deter me in loosing the desired weight - my quality of life, and overall health require a sustained, permanent weight loss.
