Wow! I can’t believe I have finished yet another month on my weight loss. I am so excited to be down a total of 47.4 pounds. When I started this journey I had no idea how hard it would be nor if I would last more than a month. Here I am at an eight month update and still going strong. I have to admit I haven’t lost as much as I had wanted to as my goal was to lose 75 pounds over 9 months. I still have a month to go, but I don’t see that I will reach my goal, but that is okay. I will not let that get me down, instead I will glory in what I have accomplished and keep going and fighting until I reach that goal.
A couple weeks ago I pulled out my wedding dress from 2014 and was happy to see that it doesn’t fit anymore. Well at least not like it did the day I got married. It’s TOO BIG now. Go me!!!
I am in my last month of the program with only about 3 weeks left. I’m anxious to see how many inches I have lost, which I know has to be a lot because everything I was wearing when I started this program is now too big and has either been given away or thrown out. About a month ago I bought two pair of shorts and they are too big now as well. There so baggy in the butt it looks like I have a wad of something in there that shouldn’t be, but it’s just the fabric bunched up.
Once I’m through with the program I’ll post a before and after photo. If your on the fence about changing your lifestyle and learning to eat healthy and get the extra weight off, go for it. Don’t hold back. Your health is too important not to take care of yourself.
In addition to taking care of my health I have decided to take care of my mind and by doing so I have started therapy to determine how to deal with some of the issues in my life and the traumas that I have sustained over the years. This year is all about taking care of myself for a change.
