It has taken me over 2 months to lose a little over 10 pounds and I am thrilled to finally be in the single digits and so close to 199. I posted my last weight progress entry on October 13, 2017 (you can read that here) and I weighed in at 217.8 pounds.
Original weight: 256.6
Current weight: 204.5
Total pounds lost: 52.1
Current Body Fat: 40.5%
Current BMI: 39.5%
These last two months have been a complete struggle! I hit many walls and felt trapped in my own thoughts, shortcomings and failures. I continued to workout with my trainer three days a week but I did not workout on my own or eat properly. I wanted to eat better but I was standing in my own way. I wish I could blame the slow weight loss solely on the holidays but I can’t. I didn’t eat any candy at the end of October, ate only half my plate for Thanksgiving, I did, however, eat enough for three people on Christmas (my mother’s red velvet cakes should be a sin) but I barely ate a thing for the New Year!
Sweets, snacks and NOT getting the proper rest were my downfall. I don’t think I hit a plateau. I just wasn’t properly fueling my body to drop the excess weight. Now that it is 2018, I am back on track and ready to hit my first major weight loss goal of 199 pounds!!!
I have officially lost over 50 pounds and if I can be honest, I am in disbelief. All of my old clothes are hanging off me, working out has become a hobby and my family and friends are really starting to notice the changes in my physical appearance and my new lifestyle. I give God all of the glory for I know it is because of his strength and not my own!
If you have lost weight, let me know how you got there. What advice do you have for someone who has another 50+ pounds to lose?
I hope to hear from you soon. God Bless!
