144.8lb → 119.2lb
start: --> 144.8+ lb (10/09/09) but I started caring in November
current (lowest): 123.9 123.7 123.3 122.4 121.8 121.0 (07/13/10) 120.6 (07/15/10) 119.2 (sometime in August)
goal: 117 (or lower) (SUMMER) oops.


STATS;
name: Jessica
gender: female
age: 17
height: 5'3" (160cm)
weight: 119.2 lb (54.18 kg)

I've always been overweight. I've always been the fattest one out of all my friends-- which I made okay to myself because I was taller than everyone else. but it was so embarrassing. embarrassing when my mom made the costumes for my dance class using me as the model and everyone's skirts were way too big. embarrassing when a girl noticed we had the same pants and hers were loose, and mine were tight. but I never had the motivation to lose weight
my weight loss stories are embarrassing. having my mom have to bribe me to lose weight-- "if you get down to 130 pounds, I'll get you this" and after getting that after a few MONTHS, "we can get a cat after 125 pounds"-- then completely stopping, gaining all the weight back + more


I actually lied. I never felt embarrassed or thought I was THAT fat. (those stories are true though) I thought I was average, despite my weight. I thought I looked okay, etc. etc. because my face is (apparently) small, so (according to my mom), no matter how much I gain, I'll still look presentable. which was why I had so many failed diet attempts, because I didn't feel that I needed to (in fact I thought that extra weight was because I had lots of muscle mass. hah).
however a year ago, I took a blood test (for my physical for volleyball). When I got the results back, I found out that my cholesterol was 100 points(??) higher (if I'm wrong, whatever, it basically meant that I was unhealthy) than it's supposed to be, yet my glucose level was abnormally low. (which is odd considering the fatness I had was because I eat too much candy/sweets) I didn't think it was legit, but I got worried about my health for the first time, and took action.


I have no regrets from getting that scary blood test back P:


I'm sick and tired of attempted and failed attempts to get healthy. so I figure if I publicize this, and have people expecting something out of me, I'll get more motivation to lose weight.

it's also kinda late to start this journal now because I already lost more than half my goal, but the last 10 pounds are always the hardest, so I'm gonna need a little more motivation.

routine:
food
*no more candy (or cutting to a minimal)
*not eating 7 large meals
*cutting down to normal portions
*if I'm not hungry... DON'T EAT.
*etc.

exercise
*running 3.5 miles (30 minutes) every other day
*8 min ab everyday
*biking to and fro school (not really that much, it's only <strike>1 mile</strike> 2 miles in total) (I actually calculated because I added in running to school as part of my running routine, it's farther than I thought :x)
*track season-- sprinting, endurance, pole vaulting, ab workouts, stretching
*NEW! Insanity on given days-- except rest days on Saturday
*(plan to, haven't done yet) running route (measures out to be 4.92 miles according to mapquest) on Saturdays

food: I already had a ^ food part, but it wasn't detailed ;x there are a few foods that I completely eliminated from my diet, because of high fat content + ..if you think about it, the amount of grossness in it is really disgusting.
I no longer eat:
-(pork) dumplings (as in, the ones with meat. I eat those dumplings with the same filling as jiu cai he zhis though. basically leek, some noodle and egg)
-hot dogs (haven't had them since like. November? ToT)
-noodles (or limit to 1 meal of noodles a day, and once every few weeks)
-ice cream (or very limited. like once every 2+ months)
-TBC..




pictures: (uhhhhhhh. hahahah)

before: (I don't have any body pictures of right before I dieted, and only some from 2 years ago, when I was 130+. I was always in baggy clothes) went flipping through my facebook and found a few. added a few comments
delete1.jpgdelete4.jpg
delete3.jpgdelete6.jpgdelete5.jpg

(lookit that tummy!)


around 10~15 pounds into the diet: (those jeans I'm wearing-- they were skiiiin tight on me in the summer, and it was difficult to button. this picture was taken at night (yes, so after eating), and before I did my tummy workout, nor was it flexed)
23011.jpg23012.jpg


20 pounds lost:
imhungry002.jpgimhungry004.jpg
imhungry003.jpgshirt002.jpg
stomc002.jpg (I took that just now because I realized I have something to compare to :x)
(I love that middle right picture, it shows my shoulderblades frhgohfw hahahaha. before you prolly couldn't even see them, or they had like a 2 inch thick layer of fat on them)

now:
they're kinda part nudie so I feel embarrassed so I'm leaving links '-'
click with caution!!
front side

mmm ....
I'm very pasty... mm.. bean paste..

future:
) ( body.
HAHAHHA. TBA :(



[P.S. I actually had all the intention of making this thread real pretty with colours and fonts (you can tell with the very beginning) but I'm obviously not organized or decorative enough]

    weight:
    it's recommended that you weigh yourself once every other week to avoid discouragement when you gain or don't lose due to fluctuation, but I'm the type that gets fired up when I gain a lot ("THEN I HAVE TO WORK HARDER TODAY") or when I lose ("LET'S KEEP GOING"), so I check everyday (and write it on my calendar, but here, I'm gonna start from today only--)

    measurements:
    I only measure once a month, on the third (or 4th) Sunday of each month. I measure my arms, thighs, calves, waist and hips. I'll provide measurements from start to current (because it's not as tedious as it would be to type out all my weights)

    Wow congrats for your weight loss!

    I have a few questions...
    Can you give us an example of how your meals were like on an ordinary day?
    and also, what was your pant sizes before and after the weight loss?

    Reward yourself and get your mom to take you shopping so you can get an outfit or two that flaunt the change in you image Then work toward your goal for a new shopping spree and throw out the really baggy loose clothing.

    You know what im talking about - the clothes that hide you or detract from you by being abstract or clashing against your body image

    I'd love to have parents that bribed me with pets and stuff!! image More incentive~ I'd take advantage!! image

    Good work - keep it up!

    summer coming up should be MOTIVATION<3 (like that quote I jacked. I heard it in school and thought it applied to this really well ;D)
    my mom's goal for me was actually 125 pounds, but I'm not that satisfied with my body right now, so I'm continuing ;x

    and also, what was your pant sizes before and after the weight loss?

    ummmmm. normal days, I'm unable to do that 6 meal a day thing because I get home at roughly 5pm, and I'm not allowed to eat when I feel like it in school (or the teachers confiscate it and eat it in your face). my school sucks
    breakfast-- sandwich, baozi or mantou (with meat inside)
    lunch-- rice, meat/fishie, veggies (basically leftovers from the night before)
    dinner-- rice, meat/fishie, veggies (recently I'm taking out the rice or cutting it to minimal)
    after-dinner (occasional)-- cereal+milk, fruits or ..well I used to have rice cakes, but I finished them all, so not anymore

    pant sizes...
    well. I wore guy jeans (remember?), so I was a 32 before (it was loose, but still..)
    and now I'm like. depending on the brand, I can be a 7, 9 or 11. it's strange. girl pants are weird.

    yeah, honestly I can't do any of those diets, like I'm mentally unable to do them. I need to have food in my system. I'm prolly the type that would rather run 3 miles everyday than cut out my meat (..which I do do.)
    thank you!

    I actually don't wear them (tank tops) yet >_< at least, not in public. that tank pictures are either at home, after I took off my tshirt to exercise, or right after I showered, I needed a shirt to put on to take the pictures (the thing where I'm sitting outside was for the scarves :x)
    I wanna be able to though!

    um yeah. I realize this post is kinda unnecessary because there's no real update. I'll try to keep it to like one every 1 or 2 weeks.
    update: I'm suppressing my hunger for food in my mouth (yes, I like to munch even if I'm not hungry.) and running fast.

    threads like this keep me strong!

    you're really inspiring. I started at 145 last july, and i'm currently 133~135. you're measurements from December are my current measurements now!! (i'm 5'5). I my ultimate goal is also 117, but I would love so much to be 123 by June. I've wanted this for sooo long, and I've maintained 135 for nearly 2 months now. but that's just not good enough for me anymore.

    let's work hard!!
