Goal! - Never thought I'd see the day when I could say I lost 57+ lbs!

Honestly, I don't even know what to say. I never ever thought I'd get here... I've been dreaming of this moment since I was... 10 years old? Maybe 9? Well, I'm no longer the "chubby one" :) At some point, I'm sure I hit 200 lbs but I never wanted to record it.

Starting weight: 197 lbs
Goal weight: 140 lbs

From my earliest memories, I was always the overweight one. From my photos, I just look like a normal round-faced, rosy-cheeked baby but, actually, that was the beginning of my long struggle with my weight. We moved to Canada when I was 11. I was already too foreign, unfashionable and, on top of that, really fat. My doctor told my mother that compared to the weight of other girls my age, my BMI was in the 97th percentile. I always felt like an outcast in school and although high school was a little better, I still felt so unattractive next to all the other waif-like girls there. I thought if I lost weight, I would be really beautiful and cool and everyone would love me. Typical, right?

The lowest I remember my weight was 165 lbs and that was after working my butt off in 11th grade. After graduation, the freshmen pounds piled on and, even though I made a ton of friends, I was always the bigger one. I isolated myself and never bothered interacting with other people outside my social group because I assumed that no one would want to talk to me because of my weight. Although I was pretty good at faking it (I spent all my money on my hair, nails and clothes), I never felt good enough. I had always tried dieting- from LA Weight Loss to obsessive workout DVDs. I did it all. Nothing worked.

In the summer of 2009, I weighed 197 lbs. I was sickened by myself. My docto told me that I had a hormone problem and said needed to lose weight. In the winter, I took a semester off school to travel. When I came home, I had dropped down 178 lbs unintentionally. My weight loss had begun. From there on, it's been a slow journey. I plateaued every 5-10 lbs and it's tough. I spent too much time worrying about the number on the scale and I knew that I needed to stop. But I never realized that the hardest part of losing weight would be gaining acceptance with your body. Looking in the mirror, I still can't see a big difference. I get complimented and I usually feel quite 'normal' but the problem lies in the years that my self-esteem took a beating.

Sure, the weight loss has helped but self-love seems to be a bigger struggle. I know that the fact I lost weight so slowly helped me become more comfortable with my body but sometimes I still feel like an alien. I can only hope that eventually I'll come to a place where I'm happy with myself inside and out. But for now, I'm definitely grateful that I managed to come as far as I did.

Anyway, thanks for listening. Unfortunately, I used to shy away from photos (still do actually lol) so I don't have any full length shots of when I was bigger but I've tried to get some together for you guys so here are my photos from the largest to the skinniest I've ever been in my life! :)

And if anyone is interested in the graph where I lose the bulk of the weight.....

http://i1207.photobucket.com/albums/bb465/imperialistic88/Chart.jpg?t=1296192036

How did I do it?
Calorie-counting at times but mostly watching what I ate and small portions. 1800 calories is the absolute maximum that I need. Snacking is also very important (healthy snacking: fruit, fruit, fruit! I love that stuff!) and I gave up soda (even diet soda). Instead, I drink lots and lots of tea. Not only is it a hunger suppressant, it tastes lovely and it's great with a book!
I also eat out a lot so I make sure I have my order ready before I leave the house so I'm not tempted by fast food options.
As for working out, I go through phases depending on how busy my life is. I usually stick to running, dancing and yoga though.
I've dropped from 135 to 125 lbs in the past two months and that's due to eating a salad before every meal. It's just lettuce, carrots and cucumbers with whatever dressing I feel like having (right now, my personal fave is low-cal thousand island mmmm so good). I'll eat a little bit of whatever everyone else is eating after that. Lots of water is also consumed during meals.
I've banned chocolates and desserts from my life (gawd, I love my chocolate). That means I can only eat that stuff when I'm out and I have to be very choosy. I don't deny myself anything though. If I want cake, I'll have a sliver of a slice and enjoy it while I eat slowly.
Also, when I reached around 150 lbs, I started eating organic and non-processed foods if only because I was scared about what my uber-skinny, west-coast zen friends were telling me. It did pay off though. Not only did I lose weight, I started feeling healthier. Like I said before, rely on fruit! Fruit, almond milk and tea are making my life right now. I can't wait till summer when all my favorites come into season again.

Thanks for all your support guys and I can't wait to congratulate you when you all reach your goals!

@luckymommy: I think it kick started with a visit to my home country last fall. I was eating better during the summer but I left for three months and when I got back I was high 170's. Maybe because I was too excited and too busy doing stuff to eat :D
I also found out that I had PCOS last summer and was put on birth control which may have helped (or hindered, not sure). It was supposed to give me a proper cycle (regulate my hormones?) but it could be all psychological for all I know.
Other than that, it was just eating right and exercising- I gave up my obsession with chocolate :( I had bought a treadmill in 2008 and I finally started using it. Started doing yoga too.

@astrophe: Gawd, those plateaus were killing me. They still are. I was at 140 for a day on New Years and then I bounced back up to 143. I didn't want to declare the goal until I actually did it.

Thanks everyone!!! But seriously, I'm living proof that if I can do it. You can do it (I never thought I'd be able to do it). We're all only a few months away from our goals!

you look amazing! I hear you on those plateaus. I've had a couple here and there and almost wanted to cry cause I was doing so good. Since I'm nursing my 7 month old now I can't really do much but just keep doing what I"m doing and the weight eventually starts going down again but I hate those 2-3 week stalls.

Oct 10 to jan 11 there is sudden drop of weight. What did you do special in those two and half months?

imperialistic
09-23-2011, 04:12 AM
caramelkitty, I just checked out your progress pics. They're really inspiring too. You look excellent!
puneri, I'll be honest, I'm not sure at all. When I checked my journal, there aren't any food entries from all of October-February but I believe I was very active on the treadmill from September to October (I was trying to lose weight for Halloween). I hit 150 right around Halloween. I was extremely unhealthy in November because had a lot of exams and essays due- which is why there's a plateau.
But really, I've learned to make my peace with the fact that sometimes I won't be able to explain why my weight fluctuates. If you take a look at my chart from the last six months, you'll see me go from 138 to 137 to 139 to 142. I was 141 in August but over the last few weeks, I've dropped down to 134.8 lbs with little effort on my own part.

Whenever I'm in the car or walking in the mall or a restaurant etc I'm always looking in the mirror surveying my body and I always get sad to see how big I look. I think I'm more critical and consider myself bigger than I actually am. I'm trying hard to change my mindframe and when my negative thoughts start I shut them up and point out my attributes. Like you said self-love is a process and a long one. Thanks for sharing and the motivation that you've given me to keep pressing on :)

Heya imperialistic! Wow you look AMAZING I'm so inspired. I love going through photos of before and after. Soso amazing to see.
We have/had(for you) the same goals!
I'm 196 try to get to 140 literally a one pound difference in goal.
Seeing you, although you are taller than I am, and knowing we have the exact same goal shows me what I can achieve. And how I may look like. This is so great to see I love it! I'm so very happy for you, I hope you have a happy healthy rest of your life. Best of luck for everything!!!

Thank you so much guys. Your replies inspire me as well xx
I know we can all do this so stay strong :)

mimizlb123: Just keep on trucking, body image will be a life long struggly (for most of us). The important thing is to keep a positive attitude so you can keep yourself sane when you do happen to glance in a mirror. Especially in the beginning.

CICI13: I have no idea what I could've done. I'm guessing the yoga? Unfortunately, a lot of this is down to genetics so we'll all have different results depending on our genes, environment, age, history etc

You look AMAZING!! I used to participate in negative self-talk, but realized it was really sabotaging me and my chances of being successful, so I started writing affirmations and it's definitely helped! I love your transformation photos! Great job!!
