Weight-Loss Timeline

Here is a graph of my progress since I started working toward a healthy lifestyle. Like everyone I’ve had my up’s and down’s. I’ve divided the below timeline into entries with notes as to what happened where. I’ve also added my long term and short term goals along with the date’s when I’d like to achieve them.

Each entry below contains the date of the entry and some statistics for that entry. The left number is my weight on that date and the right number is my waist measurement on that date. If you have any questions about the information feel free to drop a line. I love to answer questions and help people with health & fitness.

I took some time to turn my progress up to the end of May 2011 into a real graph to visualize my journey in a more traditional line graph.

My 200 Pounds Weight Loss Journey Chart

As you can see I’ve failed a few times, but I keep getting up and starting again. I don’t want to be fat and overweight forever, that isn’t the person I want to be.

    I just have to give it to you! You’ve come a long way and I only hope one day I can do so as well. Congrats on the milestones you have achieved!

    • Sean Willson / Aug 28 2011

      Thank you very much … while I’m not yet done I have come a long way.

    Wow! Great, great job! It’s nice to see that despite setbacks and periods of inactivity, you were still able to push through. Very inspiring.
    I’ve recently hit my all-time goal of losing 50 lbs. I thought THAT was impressive, but I can see now that I’m just a pipsqueak compared to you. I don’t need to lose any more, though. I’m happy with my weight.

    Keep it up! I support your journey.

  4. Gilly / Feb 7 2012

    What an excellent journey! I love that you never give up no matter the bumps and hurdles! What an inspiration you are…Oh and by the way your kids are adorable! Congratulations on your next steps and your new arrival!

  5. Graham / Mar 29 2012

    Only found your site while googling for reviews on Cycle Helmets. Your weightloss/fitness improvement is amazing. So many people make excuses you have put in a long hard effort to achieve such great results.good Luck for the future.

  6. Leslie / Apr 16 2012

    Your perseverence is very inspiring. Thank you for logging all the ups and downs. Just want to send you a word of encouragement. I hope you have a buddy to stand with you and pray for you! A person standing alone can be attacked and defeated, but two can stand back-to-back and conquer. Three are even better, for a triple-braided cord is not easily broken. Ecc 4:12 Many blessings on your journey!

  7. Beth / Apr 20 2012

    Found your site looking up Lose It Badges – love that list, thanks!

    I have to say, I’ve tried blogging about my weight loss before but every time I fell off the wagon I felt like I had to redo my site and start over. Seeing all your stops and starts along the way are so much more motivational! How awesome to see that just because you stop your plan for a few months and gain some of your hard earned losses back, it doesn’t mean you have to give up. Thanks for sharing all the ups and downs of your journey!

  8. Leah / May 8 2012

    Everyone has already commented anything I could say to you. You’re awesome man! YOU CAN DO IT!

  9. Carbi / Jun 18 2012

    I commend you for your goal on staying fit and losing that excess weight. I know what your going thru, I am 62 and because of the weight product I am able to maintain my health and weight. Many folks tell me (I hope that it’s not just being nice to me) but they tell me I don’t look my age. It’s all due to my meal replacement shake I take every morning. I hope that you too will try this shake an notice the change in your overall health….good luck and keep up the goal and don’t give up….

    Cheers

  10. Cindy / Jun 27 2012

    Thank you for sharing! I can see myself in your journal. You gain weight at the same times I do! Those holidays are a bummer when it comes to trying to eat right. I can see there are times where you got off plan but you always came back. Thank you for sharing your struggles and accomplishments. It inspires me to persevere like you did, even through the low times! :) You are truly a great role model for your precious children.

  11. Mary / Jul 11 2012

    You have definitely come a long way Sean and am sure you will hit your September 2012 goal! Very inspirational; we all face setbacks but keep at it! :)

    Mary

  12. Kim D. / Jul 31 2012

    I also found your site looking up Lose It badges and I have to say, you are so inspirational!! Keep up the fantastic work!!!

  13. Kristine / Aug 5 2012

    I was searching for Nike+ apps reviews and found your site. It’s great to see that you are staying on the road to better health, which honestly is a never ending journey. You are proof that “it can be done” to those that have so many excuses for why they can’t do it.

  14. john / Jan 6 2013

    Great long-term trend, here’s to a successful 2013!

  15. L Cheng / Jun 2 2013

    Great graph and chart, helps those trying to lose weight to know that its a constant and lifelong commitment.

    Sharing this with my friends!

  16. Ameen Kamadia / Aug 7 2013

    Thank you for sharing.
    It gives inspiration to see a normal person stick to his goals and accomplish them. Too much of the Biggest Lower crap on TV promises quick results. You are the real deal.

    Your family must be so proud of you!

  17. Arné / Aug 14 2013

    Wow, admiration to you for getting back on the horse, amazing 11 year progress.

    Thanks for sharing this with all.

  18. Christine / Aug 25 2013

    Bravo! Such an amazing journey and you are a fantastic person for sharing it. Your story will help me a great deal as I am embarking on my own weight loss trip. Thanks much.

  19. David / Dec 4 2013

    Keep it up! You can do it!
