Alright, so I've been hesitant on posting this, but honestly I'm beyond proud of myself. Anyone who knows me knows I've always struggled with my weight pretty much my whole life. I've been called fat by doctors, exes, old friends, even some family. I have two autoimmune diseases which makes it even more difficult to not just lose the weight, but keep it off.
The left was taken at the beginning of this year, maybe in February. The right was taken just a few days ago. In total, I've lost between 40 and 50 lbs. I went from a size 12 to a size 6.
This journey was not exactly intentional. I didnt do any excessive exercise nor did I stick to a special diet. My job has me on my feet, constantly walking or even running back and forth. I've been more considerate in what I eat and I quit alcohol entirely. For the first time in my life, though, I'm finally at a healthy weight.
You dont need hardcore discipline, you dont need to starve yourself, sometimes all it takes is a small extra step in your everyday life. Sure, my results weren't quick, but I still made it and I'm still proud of myself for it. This is a goal I promised myself years ago.
