Talking Past the halfway point! Finally in ONEderland!

I think it's time I posted in this mini-goals section! I've been trying to get rid of this weight since January and I've finally past the halfway point to goal! I'm down 46 pounds with 43 to go! I've also made it to ONEderland which I havn't seen since 2003! WOOHOO!!! I've been overweight my whole life, I mean even as a toddler, a teenager, and an adult I've always been overweight or obese. Last time I lost some of my weight I only got to 177, still overweight. That's the smallest I've ever been in my adult life so I don't really know what normal will look like on me but I can't wait to find out!

I started in January taking Alli which did help me a lot getting started but I didn't like the idea of having to keep taking pills everyday so I stopped after a few weeks. Then in February I started the C25k program which I loved and I've been running ever since! In May or June I started taking yoga classes at my gym and now I'm completely obsessed with it! I just started weight training this past week so hopefully when I reach my final goal I'll have nice muscles to go with my new body!

As for my eating, well, it wasn't great until July 5th when I went vegan! I feel so much better now! Other then that I havn't been following a specific diet, I don't count calories, carbs, grams, points, nothing. I just try to eat healthy and watch my portions.

As happy as I am with the weight I've lost I'm much more happy with the fact that I'm learning how to listen to what my body needs and doesn't need. I feel calmer most of the time and more energetic when I need to be. My blood pressure has come down to 100/66 when it used to be like 129/96. I rest when I need to rest, I play when I need to play, and I work hard when I need to. I'm just in general a happier person!

Sorry for the long post I'm just so excited with all these changes that I needed to share! Hey if my mini-goal post is this long imagine my final goal post lmao!!! Thanks for reading!
