I just wanted to celebrate with y'all my losing 25 lbs for the first time in my life. I still have 52 to go but I'm well in my way.
I started on January 20 so I just started my 3rd month of healthy eating. I count calories, eliminated sugar and carbs as much as possible, and do a high protein diet (I follow the model of IP but I'm not really doing IP). Additionally I walk, jog for 1 mile on the treadmill occasionally, and do daily squats (I know it sounds random but if you saw how sad my butt looks, you'd know why I do squats hahaha!).
I went from being XL (almost XXL), to L; and in terms of my pants, I went from my last pair of pants being size 16 (fitting loosely), to a 12+. I'm in between sizes with everything.
In any case... I'm feeling very pumped to keep working and keep going. I haven't been this weight since 2007, after I had my first daughter. Phew, it's been a while.
I'm on fire!
