Excessive weight loss

My health and weight loss journal

After more than eight years I've finally reached the weight - give or take a pound or two - that I was before I got married and had three more children. (My oldest daughter was about 10 when I got married.) I'm pretty pleased with my progress; starting out January 2008 at 199 pounds and now I'm at about 156ish. Around the weight I was when I met my soon-to-be ex.

Now this is the part that gets a little Off My Chest-ish:

I heard through the proverbial grapevine that someone said, "She's lost an excessive amount of weight." Are you kidding me?

I get back to a healthy weight for my height and I'm even criticized about that. Some people really need to mind their own business and get a life! They also - take note if you're reading this (you know who you are) - need to keep my name outta their mouth. I'm sure I can sue for defamation of character or something like that. Huff.

Okay, sorry, back to what I was saying...

So, I'm proud of myself (even though I wouldn't mind losing about five more pounds) and think I look much better than I did a year or so ago. I was looking at some pictures and I was a little chubby. This weight is healthier and I hope I can keep it off. Maintaining weight, I have discovered, is a lifestyle but - luckily - it's one I enjoy.

I'll have to track down the picture I saw to share with you at another time, my youngest child is screaming for my attention and I have to get everyone in the bed. To make up for my photo neglect, check out some of my older health and weight loss journals... there are a few that have pictures. :)
