Change takes time - Weight loss included
In January 2013, I was down to 198 pounds – a weight I hadn’t seen since around junior high school.

I’ve lost over 100 pounds since 2007. Wow. That’s seven years ago – as I’m writing this in 2014. Change takes time.

But between 2001 and 2007 I’ve gained 60 pounds or so. That took some time, too. Change takes time and that’s true for the positive and the negative. Looking back today I wouldn’t have guessed that it took me six years to gain all that weight. It seemed like it was just there one day.

Then I lost a bunch of weight to around 219 or so. I think that took three months. Honestly, though, I’m sure it took much longer. I really don’t know.

I gained some weight again and was at around 268 in September 2011. Again, change takes time and the pounds kept creeping on.

I lost weight all the way down to the mid-190s by the end of 2012 and then gained 20 pounds or so back. Currently, in May 2014 I’m at around 218, but it felt like I just gained this back in the last couple of weeks. It’s so hard to keep track when we don’t document it.

Good thing that this time around the weight gain was documented in the My Fitness Pal app. I knew that it took me over 12 months to gain these 20 pounds. Change takes time, I know … but it’s again time to start losing some of those 20 pounds.

Making that change once again, I’m sure will take time.
