It’s been 2 years now since I made the decision to change my lifestyle. I’ve had my ups and downs, some trial and error. Though I never stopped putting in effort.
Admittedly, I am not where I thought would be two years later. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing. I am in a place where I am content and I remain positive. I appreciate myself. I’m active and in the best shape I have ever been. No, I never reached 125 lbs. I figured that weightloss would be linear, and my progress would continue at a constant rate… and I was wrong. I gained weight, lost it, gained some back again. I’m back into the 160s, which is the weight I started at. I’m happy with where I am and how far I’ve came. I never stopped doing and I never gave up even when I didn’t see myself losing weight. I still remained motivated and kicked every day in the face. I still do now.
The other day I felt like I hadn’t changed at all, that I was still the same size as before. But that isn’t true. I’m actually an entirely different person than I was 2 years ago. Mentally and physically. I’ve made so much progress, I’ve transformed myself in so many ways. I’m proud of that. Even if I have not reached my “goal”, even though I did gain weight.. I still made a complete change in order to better myself. and that is something I am proud of no matter what size I am. 😌
Thank you for posting! It reminds me not to rely on my scale, you look amazing!
Yep, it’s important to realize that body composition matters. :) At 160 lbs and 5’5” I am considered overweight. So, yeah, there is more to it than just weight!
The day after having 2500 calories including pizza and chocolate.
And that’s why you need to stop worrying so much about too many calories and unhealthy food once in a while.
