Thank you for this thread.
I haven't lost a pound in 3 months and I'm struggling with bingeing. I feel so beat down.
I could really use the reminder that I have accomplished a lot.
-I've lost 68 lbs.
-I've lost 22 inches from my hips, waist and chest.
-I've gone from a size 24 to a 14.
-I've lost a whole shoe size. ( That was a loss I didn't expect. )
-My BMI has gone from 43.4 to 32.7.
- My cholesterol has gone from 267 to 167 without the help of meds. My BP was 140/90. It now averages 125/70. My resting heart rate is in the 40 to 50 range. I don't know what my blood sugar is now, but it must have improved because my PCOS has improved. I've had a period every month for the last 8 months.
- When I started walking, I couldn't go 10 ft. before my legs hurt and I was sucking wind. Plantar fasciitis made every step excruciating. Now I can proudly say that I've RUN 5 miles without stopping and have run a mile in 9 minutes and 53 seconds.
