Holy moly. Honestly I never ever thought this all would happen.
I'm not really active on here... I check in every once in a while but it's probably been almost a year since I last showed up.
But, here I am again! And I made it under 200 pounds. I have no idea how that happened.
Okay, I guess I do. I started working out regularly for the first time in my entire life. I focus more on exercise because I'm so busy that it's often difficult for me to focus as much on calorie intake as I need to.
I lost pretty consistently over the summer and since going back to school it's trailed off a little bit, but I haven't gained. I lost about 15 pounds this summer and another 10 or so since I got back to school in august.
Also, so far I've gone from a size 18 in jeans to a size 14... and I actually squeezed into a 12 the other day! And I'm about a 12 now in tops, too. Ahhh!
Here are my lovely
photos from a year and a half ago, at my highest weight (246
And, here I am now! These pictures are all me between 198-202
ish. I'm busy, I don't have a lot of time for photos!
Yes, I have a little bit of a lazy eye going, but I would like to point out that I HAVE COLLARBONES. WTF? Where did those come from? I have never ever ever in my life seen my collarbones. Ever.
And finally, this is a picture from a few days ago. I don't think I really realized until now how much weight I've lost in my face.
I've never considered myself attractive whatsoever. I avoid mirrors like the plague. I hate hate HATE seeing candid photos of myself because I always have a double chin and just look so fat
all the time. But... that's getting better. In fact, I actually really like that picture!
So this semester's finals are almost over and I'm so close to winter break! I have a whole month off from school and I plan on losing 10 pounds over break.
ALSO, I'm about two weeks away from my 21st birthday. So excited! I'm even more excited because I know that by 22 I'll be at my goal weight.
Thanks so much to everyone for all the encouragement and inspiration I get every time I pop back in here! You all are awesome. And seriously, if I can somehow manage to lose almost 50 pounds... then literally absolutely ANYBODY can. I have pretty much the worst self control in the history of mankind.
