Default This time last year

This time last year I was wearing a size 22/24 and eating a family sized bag of cheetos or plain potato chips with ice cream. I would eat until I got tired. I was looking forward to going to visit family but now looking forward to seeing anyone because of all the weight I had gained. I wasn't thinking about working out and made all kinds of excuses as to why I couldn't go to the free gym where I work.

This time this year...I've been counting calories since Jan 3, 2010 and now I'm down to a size 14 working hard to get to a size 12. I workout at the Free Gym almost everyday. I have a treadmill at home that I get on almost everyday. I do ab workouts and workout videos. I know more about what my body likes and dislikes for health. I realized the 44 C bra I was wearing last year is too big. I have an entire new wardrobe of clothes. I have a different way of looking at life. I'm waiting to see my results from my physical that I had back on October 29. I'm looking forward to a GREAT 2011 for my physical, spiritual and emotional self, my family and career.

What about you? Where were you this time last year and where are you now?

Last year at this time I weighed 270 pounds & was a size 22W/24W in pants and a 2X in tops.

Now, I weigh 217 and am wearing a 16W pants (sometimes a reg 16!) and can wear most XL tops!

Last year, I was feeding my body a ton of GARBAGE and not exercising. This year, I am feeding my body much healthier food and exercising 4-5 days a week at a minimum!

My weight loss my not be the quickest---I was hoping to lose 71 pounds this year, but it's been consistent. I also have a plan I can live with for the rest of my life.

wow..Thanksgiving of last year. I was right at 200 pounds. Perhaps a bit more, I honestly did not have the guts to step onto the scale until I was 3 weeks into my changes, and the scale at that point showed 197. In November of last year I had not made my changes yet, but it was fast approaching that critical moment. I know I was in pain when I got out of bed. Just stepping onto the floor first thing in the morning made my feet ache. My hips were constantly causing me pain and I did not have a single pair of pants that did not have an elastic band, and about 80% of the time I just wore sweat pants. I did not care about my appearance, and spent most of my time just sitting on my ....

I cant even list all the changes. There are too many. But..well, GO ME! And GO ALL OF YOU!! I had not actually thought of it in terms of where I was a year ago, but now that I have..Its liberating.

My loss hasn't been as fast as some of yours. I took a three-month maintenance break (really a gain-five-pounds break, oops) earlier this year. And, my plan is a little more forgiving than some - it turns out (so far) that sustainability for me includes not having to adhere perfectly to a strict plan all the time, as long as I can live with the loss being a little slower.

So, exactly year ago I was already a couple months into my plan. And since then, I've lost about 40 pounds. Again, not the dramatic totals some of you show, but I have no complaints. It actually adds up to just about 5 pounds loss per month, when I am on plan, and I'm pretty happy with that. I still have a ways to go, but I'm fully okay with it taking me another year or year and a half to get to goal - whatever that may be!

Last year I was fluctuating between 285 and 295 and worried about knees, blood pressure and diabetes but ignoring any thought of doing anyting about them.

I was pretty much ignoring my life. Now I have at least opened my eyes, am down to about 260-265 and I am taking steps to be really healthy.

Hopefully, I will have some cool pics in a couple of months to share!

This time last year I was a UK size 18, working on a MA dissertation, and eating myself into a whole at 214lbs. Today, I'm a UK size 12/14, an increasingly more comfortable weight of 178lbs and moving to NZ in 1 month. What a year!

I basically took all of the summer off as a maintenance break, but now am back into things again, and feeling great. What a year!

It was last November that I noticed I was constantly thirsty and needing to pee all the time. Testing revealed that yes, I was pre-diabetic. I struggled to get onto the right plan, and have lost slowly, but in a way I can sustain. My blood sugars are stable, I have lost 18 pounds and gone from a tight size 14 to a looser size 12. In some ways I haven't achieved all that I wanted, but the achievements are there. If I hadn't got started, I would be heavier than ever and likely needing insulin. This year's goals will include more exercise and to continue the diet and meditation plans I have been working on, and working music back into my life. This is "my" new years, and it was a great time to make resolutions too.
Great thread, and congrats to everyone for their great achievements.

This time last year I was so lonely, and felt so horrible about myself. I was 250lbs. In December I started counting calories and exercising. The weight started flying off at first. I lost 55lbs by June. However, I then started to get off plan. At first, it was just one cheat day a week. Then I was totally off plan until October 24th. Now, I have been back on plan, and I am at 204. I am glad I did not get back to 250, and I am almost back in onederland. I never want to be that big again. It has been a good year for me! I am definitely learning to be healthier and to keep trying.
