I have been noticing that my weight loss had seemingly slowed, but today I had a happy surprise. I’ve lost about six inches of bust! I’ve been wondering why I’ve had absolutely ZERO back problems recently. I am so happy! My doctor said that if I didn’t lose weight up there along with the rest of my body, I’d need surgery, but now it looks like I might not need anything done!
Also, I only have about 50 pounds left to go I think. I haven’t formerly weighed myself, but I have dropped a little more than 4 pant sizes since June! I went from being almost a 24 to a 16! I am so freaking happy. My back is flattening out, which means the fat is dropping a bit to my belly, but with a little extra work on that target area, I should be able to reach my ultimate goal weight by the end of the summer, I’m hoping.
Guys, never give up on yourselves. It took me almost 6 years to fully commit to losing weight and getting in shape. I have even faltered a bit this year since starting my routines and lifestyle habits. These aren’t small changes like sticking to a new flavour gum or not paying for coffee in the mornings. Losing weight and/or getting in shape is a full blown lifestyle change. It’s freaking hard, but every step is worth the work. I’m sorry for my lack of activity lately, but I had been feeling down over not seeing the results I wanted, but after today, I realised that the results we want aren’t always what we get at first, but it should fuel us to push even harder to obtain them. <3
I will be taking some photos of myself soon for updates, but I leave this super long catch-up session with a photo of a woman to whom I look for inspiration when I feel like giving up. Dale Evans!
