Weigh-in Wednesdays: 130.8

Starting weight: 176.4
Last week weight: 132.2
Current weight: 130.8
Current loss: -1.4
TOTAL LOSS: -45.6

Ummmm...... YEAH  BABY!

Just a super short and quick post cause I finally FINALLY broke the 45lbs.-loss mark... I've been waiting for almost a year for it but I finally did it.  The journey's been tough... real tough... and I'm not even close to being done.  Last week someone asked me what my goal weight was and although I don't have a certain number I want to reach, I've always had my long-term goal set at 120.

Don't worry, this isn't hitting an anorexic state.  Think about it for a bit.
I'm only 5'0".
When I last had my body fat % measured (end of April) I was 138 lbs. and 32% body fat.

32% body fat = 44 lbs. of fat + 94 lbs. of muscle
(correct me if I'm wrong)

So ultimately 32% body fat = still really fat.  So aiming for 120 at my height is still kinda far away from being my "ideal" healthy weight, but 120 is the number I would totally be happy to see...

WooooHoooo! Rock it!

Let's hear it for the short chicks! ;)

120 is totally doable and not at all too small for a 5'nothin chick like you...and ME.

Chris said...

Way to go Annie. And here you were worrying about a couple of slip ups! You still lost the weight - congrats!

You ROCK!!! You totally inspire me. I have been at it for about 7 weeks of excersise right now and I have only lost a couple of pounds, but I am going to stick with it:) Reading your blog has really helped me:)

I enjoy reading your blog! You're such an inspiration! Keep it up, girl! Congratulations on your accomplishments!
(Don't worry too much about body fat vs. muscle. Enjoy how good you're feeling now that you're 45 lbs. lighter! Isn't it amazing?)

Yay! That is so awesome! Such a good reminder that it's not how fast we lose it. . .it's that we are losing it! If I'm 45 pounds lighter this time next year, how fabulous that will be! :)

Congrats on your loss and for reaching that 45lb loss goal!

Your long term goal of 120 sounds very reasonable and attainable for your height.

Keep up the good work!

" ...and I'm not even close to being done."

We're NEVER done, even when you hit that 120 lb mark. This is what stops soooo many - focusing too hard on an illusionary "finish line."

If we concentrate on making this a total life and mindset change, every day will always be about one step, PERIOD!

It will also take so much pressure off.

Love your journey and passion!

Laurie said...

Woohoo! Way to break through! So excited for you!

Deb said...

Excellent work. You deserve to do the happy dance.

Katie J said...

Awesome Annie! I know how frustrated you have been hovering near that goal so I am SO glad you were able to reach it.

Susan said...

Way to go!!!
Your goal is right in line with your height... according to a couple of different websites I looked at, the healthy range (depending on frame size) is 102-128.
You should be so proud of yourself, that's a great accomplishment! Keep up the good work and you'll be there before you know it!

ANNIE! You lost some more! Do you know how hard it is to lose a whole bunch (still talking about those 3 lbs last week) to not gain it right back... of course you know how hard it is. That's a huge accomplishment, congratulations!!!

KEEP GOING GIRL! Don't give up, don't get down, be happy ;)
