I started actively trying to lose weight the 2nd week of June this year, and have been fairly successful. I do not own a scale, and I only measure myself every once in awhile because I always fear I am doing it incorrectly. However, by the fit of my clothes (I need new pants and a button up shirt as they all hang off haha) and comments by a few people, I know this has been working. I have a very difficult time seeing my body for how it actually is, though. Its great to know that this has been a HEALTHY little milestone.
Anyways, my 21st birthday is coming up, and I need to amp up the transformation! I know I haven't been consuming enough calories some days, so the first step is to get in 1200 a day. I'm already exercising almost every day. Perhaps longer? Harder? Any tips on how to light a fire under your weight loss? haha I used to just restrict severely when I was young and foolish. I am doing this the healthy way, as a lifestyle change, and to get my issues with eating under control. So, if there's anyone who has any ideas or suggestions for me to help me really feel great by the 12th of August for my big day, please feel free to drop them by!
