I have successfully acquired the 5-year medical weight history required by my insurance company. I wasn’t sure this would be possible: see, I never go to the doctor. So a consistent 5-year record is almost unbelievable.Here are some stats:

2002, age 20: weight = 242, bmi = 41.5

2003 age 21: weight = 265, bmi = 45.5

2004 age 22: weight = 313, bmi = 53.7 (I remember this day. I had no idea I weighed over 300 pounds. I cried like a lunatic at the doctor’s office).

2005: no records. I hope this isn’t a problem!

2006 age 24: weight = 344, bmi = 59.0

And here I am today, age 25: weight = 347, bmi = 59.6

And of course, being the numbers girl that I am, I wanted to calculate just how, over the last 5 years, I’ve managed to gain approximately 35 pounds per year. The sad news, my friends, is that this equals a mere 300 excess calories each day. Do you know how easy it is to overindulge by 300 calories??

This really helps me to put every single freakin’ morsel into perspective.
