So it's official. Went to the doctor today because I've been having a lot of random chest pain. He is fairly certain I am not dying, but instead have been having panic attacks. That is way better. And to ADD to that, I got weighed, and I am now officially 160 pounds! Mostly due, after I stopped going on here that much, to the grad student diet while I was visiting my boyfriend.
Starting weight: 206
Weight now: 160
*whips off shades* YEAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHH
Okay, so it's not a huge goal to meet compared to what other people around here have lost, but I feel good about it. It's not even a healthy weight- but it was the weight I thought I could get to way back in the day three years ago, and I kept the goal just to see if I could make it. Now I suppose I'll have to make a new one, but I'm basking in the glory for a while.
Old me! Note that I have approximately no photos of fat me because I did not like them. I believe these photos are of me at 190ish.
In both, I am the one with the short brown hair. Magenta very baggy pants in second, green dress in first.
Anyway, even though I did kind of abandon you guys you really got me on the right track and kept me there, and gave me the advice and encouragement I needed to keep at it, even when I was whiny. So thanks, all of you.
