I am a 40 year old single African woman. I live in Quebec City, Canada. I achieved my weight loss goal back in 2009 and I am learning how to maintain my weight and establish what is my ideal weight. I enjoy being active and I love running. I'm training to increase my mileage and speed this year and run a half marathon by August/September
I'm 35, height 5'5.5", weight 238 lbs in March 2014.
Important milestones that I hope to cross.
To reach 224 lbs - that is 16 stone!
To reach 219 lbs - finally be under 100kg!
To reach 214 lbs - that's 10% lost!
To reach 210 lbs - 15 stone!
To reach 202 lbs - that's 15% lost!
To reach 199 lbs - onederland!
To reach 196 lbs - 14 stone.
To reach 190 lbs - that's 20% lost!
To reach 182 lbs - end of obesity, and 13 stone.
To reach 178 lbs - that's 25% lost!
To reach 168 lbs - 12 stone and close to 30% lost!
To reach 154 lbs - 11 stone.
And then: to reach 152lbs - "normal" BMI for 5'5.5" height.
Eventually reach my lowest weight of 138 lbs again (that was me in late 2007/early 2008 - that is middle of "normal" for my height, and means my clothes fit well).
So I've done this before. about 3 years ago I was 210-215lbs.I lost a total of 50lbs. This was amazing. I've built up a lot of self confidence (which was actually one of my goals upon first starting with Peertrainer), I look and feel better. But now that I've been at 170lbs for about 2 years, I am starting to see myself as large again. For a long time my goal has been to be about 150lbs. I want to finally reach that. I deserve it and owe it to myself.
