A Year of Difference

oneyear2016-2017Back in April 2016, I felt great. I had lost over 120 lbs, and I was well on my way to my penultimate goal of 175 lbs and my final goal of 165 lbs. At the time, I remember feeling very thin as compared to what I used to be. I took a silly picture, and I remember seeing it and thinking, “My gosh, look how thin I am!”

Fast forward to April 2017 and I happened to take the same photo making the same face, only this time, I was at my final goal of 165 lbs. It’s amazing what a difference that last 30 lbs of weight loss made.

Now, I’m at around 162 lbs, and I’m not sure where my weight loss will end, but I find myself getting leaner all the time. Aside from eating clean, I run every other day which is having a big effect on my overall health.

Stick with it. The payoff is worth the discipline you have to use to get there.

  1. Good for you! Perseverance is everything. It’s what got me through my Ph.D. And it’s what keeps you in the top 5% of weight loss maintainers. Thank you for being such a hard-working, tenacious role model for us all. Truly motivating!
