Six Years Ago

A little over six years ago I got married. I just happened to pick up my wedding album today and look at some pictures. The day I got married I weighed 155lbs. Today I weigh somewhere around 236lbs. It wasn't easy for me to get to 155. I remember starting weight watchers at 186lbs (a weight I would kill for today). I struggled with my hunger and desire to eat but pushed through and made it down to 138lbs, as I tried to maintain I slowly creeped back up. I was happy with my weight on my wedding day. I think I look healthy and happy.
155 didn't stay around long. I slowly creaped back up to 186, then on to 195. I stayed around that for a while but was always on some diet. Now all I want is to be healthy and maintain a good weight. Ideally I would like to be 135, a weight I haven't been since I was 16, and I was only there for a very brief time. I am 5'4" and can hold a little more weight, but I would also like some wiggle room. I would like to be +5/-5 within 135, but if I never make it past 155, I would be happy.

You looked beautiful on your wedding day! I was around 180lbs on my wedding day and would kill to get back to that weight again - my goal is 155 - how funny is that?

I think your wedding day weight looks healthy on you. I have changed my goal weight a few times, you have your whole healthy lifetime to decide

You look great at your wedding weight! I still don't know my goal either - but my weight history sounds like yours...135 as a teenager, around 160 at my wedding, and had surgery at 234. I think I would be happy somewhere around 150-160.

I am 5'4" too, but always weigh more than I look because of my big stocky body type!

Your wedding pictures are lovely and you and I have alot in common: I also weighed just around 155 on my wedding day and would be happy to get down to that weight-- even though I'm aiming for a 132-138 kind of range in the long run.
(I am also 5'4!)
Your blog is great-- I will keep reading... you're doing wonderfully.
