I know it's been a while since my last post, but I've been super busy with school. Anyway, here are my stats, as usual:
I'm at 190 now :) Only 40 more lbs til I reach my goal of 150. I hit a plateau for about a week, but I think it was because it was "that time of the month" (I know, overshare) and it was Mardi Gras. I'm back on track now, though, and it feels good.
The only bad thing is that I'm losing clothes. I've had to retire 3 pairs of jeans (I really liked them!) and a few shirts. But on the other hand, i'm getting some new clothes that fit me now, when they didn't before, so that's cool. Also, I was walking out of the gym yesterday and ran into a friend, and the first thing she said after saying Hey was You're looking so good! And when I went to visit my parents I got a compliment, too. At first I was wearing a jacket, but when I took it off and had a fitted Tshirt on my dad was like "Wow you really have lost weight... how much?" I told him About 20-25 lbs, and he was shocked.
So, that was a lot of bragging, I know. But I have gotten some useful information. The biggest thing I've learned so far is that you have to be in the right mindset before you can successfully do this (lost weight). You have to be healthy on the inside before you can work on the outside. It's like, before you go and get a new paint job on your car, you should probably fix the engine first, because that's more important.
Good luck to all who are reading this and going through the same thing, and I'll try to update soon. Hopefully I'll be in the 180s soon! I'm so damn close!
