I’ve lost 47 lbs!
I feel so much healthier, but know that I still have quite a way to go before I reach my goal weight (115). When I started this, I used to get really upset at how excruciatingly slow my weight loss was going—sometimes even gaining back a pound or two once in a while. Now I’ve just accepted that it will take time and I have to be patient. It’s not like I gained all of this weight overnight—it took years of abusing myself with food—so I shouldn’t expect my body makeover be easy or quick. The great thing about losing weight slowly is that I don’t have any stretch marks of loose skin, which is something that I kind of dreaded (but was willing to accept in trade for a healthier body).
My unofficial goal is to get to -53 lbs by the time I hit my one year anniversary at the end of October.
