I won the compulsive overeating but I'm still figting with depression. This blog is my helpful fellow on the road to the healthy life, chiefly mental.
start weight: 191 lbs (obesity)
weight now: 175 lbs (overweight)
14.5 lbs to a healthy weight (according to BMI)
I actually haven't my UGW. Just want to be happy and healthly :)
this hit me like a load of fucking bricks.
It takes a lot of courage to post this, but a few months ago I posted a before and during and got a ton of feedback, I got to help a lot of people, and it really helped me keep my mind on track. So I’m doing it again. (Please excuse me acting like a 7 year old trying on my grandmas glasses in the before photo) the pictures on the left were taken in December. I fell back into a depression and gained a lot of weight, I also had a medical issue that was making me gain weight on top of it. I was in a very dark, sad place. The pictures on the right were take yesterday. I don’t weigh myself because that’s not what it’s about, it’s about health, happiness, and finding myself and learning to be comfortable with who I am. I do know there is at least a 70 pound difference so far since I’ve gone to the doctor. I eat healthy 80% of the time. I do home workouts and go for long power walks 5 days a week. Its not a diet, diets dont work. Its a life style change, its a new way of living. Its one of the hardest journeys I have ever been on but it was one of the best things I could have ever done for myself. All the pain, control, sweat, tears is so worth becoming the best, healthiest version of yourself. It’s barely a physical journey, but mainly a mental, emotional, and spiritual one. I’m not where I want to be yet, but I know 150% I will get there and I’m damn proud of where I’m at. One of the things that pushes me everyday is a quote that goes something like this “the time is going to pass whether you make the best of it or not.” If anyone wants any advice or questions please feel free to message me!
