kissing you is the
most beautiful thing to do;
my favourite way of
passing time is laying
by your side
counting breaths and
tracing your sides
with my fingertips
letting my lips
wander around your
ribs and touching you
constantly to make sure
you’re not just my imagination.
Starting weight in picture 183 pounds August 22,2013
Current Weight 157 Pounds (In Picture 158ish)
I have always been a bit bigger, all through my school years and even in college, and I never really cared, most of the time I embraced it. And then one night out with friends we took this picture. Granted we always took pictures and posted them everywhere, and I was never embarrassed or anything. I was all dolled up and feeling good and then I saw the picture the next day. I was just really surprised. I didn’t realize where I was at.
That week I bought a scale and started my diet. I went from eating drive thru everyday, (two taco bell burritos , a couple mc chickens from mc donalds, plus cheese fries!) To counting my calories for 1000-1200 each day. I never knew how much I was eating, or even that one burrito was 500 calories, like HOLY COW .
I was losing weight so quickly and grew obsessed with the scale, and in October I pretty much stayed at 160-163. So I got my first ever gym membership. Focusing 30 minutes on the bike finishing 11 miles at first. Then jogging/ walking a mile in 14 minutes plus enough hill walking for 15-20. Then at least 10 minutes on the elliptical.
So after everything that is said and done I can:
- Run a mile in 11 minutes
- Bike 13 miles one level three in 30 minutes
Such a huge difference that I can feel!
Altogether Right now I have lost 26 pounds in almost four months. have gone from:
- size 14 in jeans to 9/10 (AND FOR THE FIRST TIME THEY AREN’T TIGHT IN THE THIGHS)
- Bra size 38c/d ro 36 C (So much easier to find my size now)
- Shirts from XL/L to MEDIUMS!
- Pants from XL/L TO MEDIUMS!
Eating healthier and working out a bit more I feel so much better, both mentally and physically.
This site has inspired me so much, when ever I am not feeling so good about my progress, I look here to remind myself its not just about the number, but how my body has changed for the better too.
I am almost halfway there to my goal and I couldn’t be any more thrilled!
July 18: 167 lbs (first picture)
August 18: 158 lbs (second picture)
Sept 4: 155 lbs (third picture)
I hit my first goal of losing 20lbs (heaviest weight was at 175 lbs around March) and couldn’t wait two more weeks to take another progress picture. Its crazy how much a three pound difference looks on me, especially in my legs, between the second and third picture. I ran 62 miles in the month of august and fell in love with running.
I am beyond motivated and so excited to see how far I can push myself to becoming a better me!
This is a four month progress. (the very first four months of my weight loss journey) I don’t remember how much I weighed at that time (left pic), probably around 130.
I cut out sodas and junk food, started to eat as healthy and clean as possible and I exercised as much as I could (I was doing the Insanity program at that time.) I didn’t have a gym membership then and still don’t have one now, I exercise at home or sometimes go outside for a run. You don’t need to go to the gym to achieve extreme results.
It wasn’t easy at first, but it’s SO worth it!
