After having pretty good success with losing weight in April, I went back to my old eating habits and gained much of it back.
On August 9th, I decided to start really working on my weight again. I had been feeling tired and out of shape and unhealthy. I was up 14 lbs from the weight I was when we moved to TN and 27 lbs from the weight where I feel good about myself.
I’ve worked really hard and been able to stick with it for a little over 4 weeks now and have lost 9.8 lbs. Of course, the weeks where I had the biggest loss were the first two weeks. It’s slowed considerably since to about 1 lb a week. I have about 17 lbs to go.
Here are my “before” and “during” photos.
These are not the best photos, but they will do :-). The first one was around the time I started and the second one was taken August 26 (two weeks ago). I’m down a few more pounds since, but I don’t have a new photo right now. I can feel and see a difference. Some of the picture difference is due to the fact that in the second photo, I’m actually wearing a more fitted t-shirt. It is nice to see a distinction between my chest and my stomach in the photos.
I would love to be at my goal weight by New Year’s. I’m not sure how realistic that is with the holidays in there. I feel motivated though.
