I can finally say it! GOAL MET!!
One year, 4 months later and i have lost over 140 pounds. I ate healthy and worked out regularly. I didn't use a magic pill or special diet, Just simple calories in calories out. I have a fitbit and used myfitness pal for part of my weight loss. Its a lifestyle change i will stick to the rest of my life.
Many things have changed in my life besides just the weight loss. I feel like a whole new person. I couldn't do simple things like rake leaves or go for a walk for fear of the chub rub. I would literally be in pain. I am happy to say now i run 6 miles every day and don't even feel out of breath. Thats probably the biggest achievement for me… Being free from the prison i was in, Being able to move. I actually love to exercise now.
Going in public is no longer a shameful thing. I used to turn a blind eye to everyone and everything. I think to shield myself from the stares. Now my eyes are starting to open again and sadly people treat me better. The world is cruel, something i didn't truly realize until this journey.
I went from a size 26 to a size 6! 300 lbs to 159. I may lose 5-10 more but for the most part i'm ready to use the winter months to hit the gym and tone up!!
