When Is Weighing 300 Pounds A GOOD Thing?

Filed under: Low-carb Tips — @ September 6, 2006

What do you think about weighing 300 pounds? Well, depending on your perspective, that can either be a good thing or a bad thing.

When I weighed over 400 pounds, the thought of weighing 300 pounds was a VERY good thing that I desperately wanted. However, now it’s two years later and I weigh 230 pounds, so that same weight of 300 pounds would be awful because it would mean a 70-pound weight gain!

Oh, how our perspective can change over time!

The lesson here is to always be aware that your weight loss perspective will be determined by where you are at the present time. If you weigh 350 pounds, then getting down to 250 is a great goal for you. But then if you reach 250, try to allow your perspective to change and contemplate losing maybe another 50 pounds to get down to 200 pounds.

This is exactly what happened to me a couple of months ago. When I lost my 180 pounds in 2004 to get down to 230 pounds, the thrill of reaching this goal was enough to make me become complacent in my weight loss and to keep that same perspective I had about my weight when I weighed 410 pounds. The only problem is I’m NOT 410 pounds anymore.
