My weight journey from 5th grade 1980 to August 2020 – the last 40 years

Tuesday, August 25, 2020

I started working on a document for my files, and then I realized it would make a good blog so here it is, with list of dates and weights seriously condensed (there are 406 entries on my personal list). After March 15th 2006 these weights are from Spark People. Before then are they from charts I kept on my website that I no longer have. The notes and information are lifted directly from personal document.
………………………………………………………..

I can remember in 5th grade when I moved schools, The class had all weighed in the month before and it was on a big chart on the wall, I was happy I did not have to do that because the teachers weight was 133 and I weighed 135. I can remember in 8th grade, my mother said I was fat and made me weigh, I weighed 207 pounds, that was the first time I ever weighed over 200 pounds. I can remember weighing 250 when I worked in sign shop in 1993 because another lady that worked there got on the freight scale and was 255 I remember thinking she was 5 pounds heaver, but she was 7 inches taller! Then I can remember weighing 270 in 1995 when a friend of mine and I went on a diet together (did not last but 2 or 3 days), we weighed in on day 1 and I was 270. Lastly I remember when I went over 300 pounds for the first time before my friend moved away, she wanted to weigh at my house (she did not have a scale). This was 1998. My scale maxed out, it went to 300 and could not weigh me. It just got worse from there and I only honestly started trying to lose weight when I joined Tops in January of 2001. I only joined because my Daddy begged me to, he thought I was going to die. All the rest of my weights are in the list.
