As I was scrolling through old photos in my phone, I stumbled upon this photo of myself (left) from January and I almost broke down in tears. That photo documents the largest I have ever been (closer to 200 pounds than I was to 100 pounds). I am so happy that I can look at that photo, now, and know that that's how I looked in the PAST.
It's said that "It takes 4 weeks for you to see your body changing. It takes 8 weeks for your friends and family. It takes 12 weeks for the rest of the world." and that is the absolute truth.
At the end of April, I promised myself that I would stay dedicated for 4 weeks, 4 weeks to eat right, workout, and change a few habits. And if, at the end of the weeks I didn't feel better, look, better, or see any progress I could actively look into Liposuction. I know I know 23 is probably too young for Liposuction but I was that desperate to get those horrid extra pounds off.
It didn't even take a the full 4 weeks for me to see and feel changes. Remember, I'm 5 feet even so ANY weight I loss or gain shows instantly. Two weeks in I felt better, my sleep schedule was on par, my skin cleared up, and my clothes started to feel loose. Four weeks in, all of the changes and new regimens became a habit and I didn't even think about what I was doing.
Now a full 7 months in, I am so happy with my loss of 25 pounds and nearly 15 inches. I still have roughly 30 more pounds to loss but I'm so happy with my progress thus far. I'll definitely keep you all updated on my progress and time passes :-)
I will post a full detailed blog tomorrow on my weight loss regimen and what has worked for me.
