View Full Version : Under the 220 mark!

I began my journey on July 7th at 240 pounds. I just returned from San Diego with my boyfriend and I began to look through our vacation photos. I realized, I was big. I was not happy being me. I thought of myself as a lot smaller, and I knew this because of how tight my clothes fit on me. It was obvious in the photos.

I told my boyfriend that our lives had to change. Both of us had gained together about 80 pounds since we began dating, each of us gaining our fair share of that, over the course of about a year and a half.

I have been eating better, which includes practicing moderation and portion control. I have also begun weight training and cardio training over the last few weeks. I go to the gym three times a week and have hired a personal trainer whom I see once a week.

Yesterday, I stepped on the scale, to find myself weighing at 218! I couldnt believe it! I fell below the 220 mark. It feels wonderful :) I feel better too. No more heart burn. No more bloaty feelings. I don't feel awful about myself anymore. I feel wonderful! This is just a small step towards a happier me. :)

My goal is 140 or best offer. By this I mean, If I love the way I look and Im toned and healthy at a higher weight, then I will call it.
