Weight Chart

My relationship with food is changing. I’m no longer monitoring my weight like I was, so the chart below is out of date as regards both my weight and my attitude. I’m keeping it around, though, because I no longer see that previous effort as a failure. I couldn’t have gotten to where I am without going through that last attempt at doing it all on my own, so what you see below was part of my journey.

Weight Chart

In 2007 I was in much the same shape as I am now: losing weight after finally waking up to how out of shape I’d gotten. I was utterly grokking the new Doctor Who at the time; I never would have thought it possible, but in a single season Christopher Eccleston had carved out a place in my heart that was equal to Tom Baker’s. So I took his skinny awesomeness and made that my goal: “When I get down to weight, I’m going to buy myself a leather jacket and look awesome like Christopher Eccleston.”

Sigh. What a mess I’ve been. I hadn’t edited the Excel file containing this chart in nearly three years. Well, I’m editing it now. And I will get that leather jacket. I’ll never possess the surfeit of uglypretty that Eccleston oozes so effortlessly, but I will get that leather jacket.

Come back often to see that red line drop.

    If you are the red line, who has the totally even blue line?

    That’s my goal: 188. Chris Eccleston is there waiting for me at the finish.

    Thanks Dawn!

    Having CE in his Dr. Who rig waiting for me would be a pretty strong motivator!

    *sigh* I can dream…

  7. Dawn Says:

    You’re doing so well. Awesome!

  8. Ranta Says:

    You’re down about 20 lbs. Holy shit. Go you!

      22. Yeah, I feel like I’m flying down a luge right now. I’m fully expecting to hit a plateau within a few pounds, but I’m ready to bust through it.

    Bust through it like a MOFO. I wish I had your self-discipline.

    I went to Crunch last Saturday for a free personal training session and fitness assessment. My body fat was assessed (by both calipers and one of those electrical current thingies) at a bit over 31% . Apparently, 31% body fat, for a woman my age, weight, and height, is one percentage point short of obese.

    (I think the people who establish these standards are fucking morons.)

    And we wonder why there are so many people with body image issues in this country.

    Anyway, I salute you, young Jedi. MOFO!

    Thanks! And I think that when you get in line for self-discipline you need to specify that you want it *all the time*, not just in fits and spurts like me. 🙂

    Uh… Calipers???
