25F, 5’9”, HW: 260 SW: 250 CW: 235.6, GW: TBD
Lately realized I may restore all my earlier Lose It! app weight knowledge, going again to the start of 2019. I put collectively a spreadsheet (I’m a nerd, lol) exhibiting the beginning and finish dates of my earlier weight reduction makes an attempt, together with beginning weights and kilos misplaced. I then calculated knowledge equivalent to days per try, physique weight % misplaced, lbs misplaced per week, and so forth. If an try ended earlier than a month, I didn’t calculate a number of the metrics – as somebody who tends to lose 5-ish lbs effortlessly initially of an try (water weight), metrics for brief makes an attempt don’t actually make sense. You’ll be able to see a picture of the file I put collectively right here: https://imgur.com/a/53IPpql
Some issues I realized from this train:
50% of my makes an attempt ended earlier than a month and have been due to this fact fairly insignificant knowledge. 36% ended earlier than 6 weeks, and seven% (just one) try was stored up after 3 months. My report excessive is just 93 days of monitoring weight
My “most profitable” try was within the spring of 2019 the place I misplaced 31 lbs in a interval of 93 days. Nonetheless, this try was plagued with disordered consuming, adverse self picture, and unhealthy psychological well being. This was a really troublesome interval for me and I struggled with my “eating regimen” each single day. I used to be consuming very very low every day energy then binging randomly with mates. Clearly the try was not very profitable as I’ve solely gotten greater and larger since
Over the past 3 years, I’ve misplaced a mixed 181.4 lbs. Serious about this was actually attention-grabbing to me. It exhibits a sample of yo-yo weight-reduction plan, inconsistent effort, and beginning weights that climbed larger and better
The truth that I’ve misplaced 181 lbs on this time interval exhibits that my physique is able to shedding pounds. I CAN do that. It’s not unattainable for me to shed weight, I’m not one of many people who find themselves doing all the things proper however the scale doesn’t budge. I’ve the flexibility to do it, my situation is consistency
The present try I’m engaged on has been 45 days. It has truthfully felt fairly simple. I’m engaged on dropping at a slower fee, becoming regular life actions into my days, becoming “unhealthy” meals into my diets, and dealing on a routine that feels regular, sustainable, and achievable. Realizing that I’m already virtually on the midway level of my earlier “most profitable try” offers me a number of hope – it’s truthfully felt pretty easy. It’s slower, more healthy, features a give attention to remedy and psychological well being, and extra. In that prior “profitable try”, by 45 days I used to be already struggling severely
I now know my greatest set off is consistency and may work by way of methods to fight causes I’ve fallen off up to now
Due to this fact, I really feel like I CAN sustain my present plan and smash my private finest information! I CAN sustain this journey for greater than 93 days, I CAN beat my variety of kilos misplaced and physique weight % misplaced. And as soon as I try this, I can preserve setting new information
Fast be aware: I acknowledge my present fee of dropping 2.25 lbs per week is a bit of excessive – once more I wish to emphasize that I’ve been at this solely 6 weeks and misplaced a excessive quantity of water weight rapidly. Per Completely happy Scale my present fee is constant to sluggish, now could be at about 1.8 lbs/week. My calorie consumption objectives are to lose 1 lb per week, with the aim so as to add to this with further exercise, consuming 0-300 energy beneath my restrict if my starvation is low, and so forth. To date that is working effectively!
Undecided if anybody else will likely be on this publish, however thought fellow data-minded folks might discover this train attention-grabbing!
