100+ lbs lost in less than 10 months- One day at a time!
I can't believe I've made it this far in this short amount of time, but somehow I have, and although I still have quite the journey ahead of me, I look forward to all the non-scale victories to come, because I tell you what, It's been one right after another! :) I've lost 106 lbs since mid January and it feels great. There have been many challenges and I'm sure there always will be but I'm doing ok and learning that slipping up happens and it's not the end of the world and learning to love myself in a way I never have before. I finally feel like I can do anything I put my mind too, and grown to learn to know that there's just things in life you can't control and to just enjoy the simple things in life, and look at the positives, because they're everywhere- but you don't see them when you're bitter or angry abut something- I never again want to be in such a negative place as I once was at 345 lbs. I'm about 8/9 lbs away from my first www.myfitnesspal.com goal of 230 lbs and that's crazy insane to me! I'm going to reevaluate what weight I want to be soon and I'm having a hard time figuring this out because I don't want to be skinny, I want curves, but I want to be fit. Everyone asks me, what's your secret and no one seems to believe me when I say just a healthy diet and exercise, but the main part is just learning to love ourselves, and realizing we're human and make mistakes and to just keep on going on with it. Motivation is hard to keep going but it's so worth it I can't stop trying to make progress. A couple weeks ago was my Brother's birthday party at an indoor rock climbing place. I tried 3 different walls and was able to get halfway up one of them... in a few months I wan to go back and try again, I'm determined to get over my anxiety and make it up that wall!! lol Here are a few before pictures, a few recent and current as well... seriously- If I can do this, anyone can.... you just have to learn to love yourself first and foremost and remember that you have 2 choices, progress or excuses! :)
