daily weight tracking – one year later

I’ve been weighing myself every morning (give or take) for a year, so it seemed like a good time to look at the results:

Here’s the graph:

Overall, I lost ~11 pounds in 2009. Optimistically, that’s around a pound a month, which is nothing spectacular but not bad considering I wasn’t on any diet in particular. Also, the overall trend was downward and I never got even close to my original weight.

Pessimistically, one pound a month is pretty darn low, and I seemed to stall out around September/October, and I’m not at my goal weight of 180, which is really above where I should be, according to BMI. And yeah, I know BMI is kinda arbitrary, but I’m not sure how else to find a healthy target weight.

Hopefully resetting the graph will help me focus on getting down to 180 and beyond!

  1. I’ve always heard that slow and steady is the best way to lose weight; apparently it is much easier to maintain that way. *shrug* I think you’re doing fine!


  2. I agree with cifarelli. And, it’s not surprising that you stall out around Oct-Dec. That’s winter and holidays. Lots of travel, holiday food, too cold to exercise outside, etc. I bet come spring you’ll be back on the lb a month train.


  3. BMI is fairly arbitrary, but it’s pretty good to ballpark around. Just don’t treat it like gospel and you’ll be fine. And agreed that 1 lb/month is good! Especially because you have kept it off. (Also I kinda love the chart.)
