Today marks a pretty big day for me. I have officially seen a number on the scale that is less than 200 lbs. I know what you are thinking… That doesn’t mean I am actually less than 200 because weight fluctuates constantly, but today I actually stepped on the scale and saw a number that starts with a 1. It has been years since this was the case.
I still have a long way to go to meet my goals but it feels good to have real progress. I started at 232 lbs. I moved down to around 210-215 for a year (I got lax in my keto) and now I have hit a new milestone!
I have an insane amount of energy, my clothes are starting to fit and I can run a relatively smooth mile. There is still a long way to go and I am still above where a healthy person of my body type and height should be, bit this is real progress!
It takes a lifestyle change not just a gym trip no and again and the occasional salad. It isn’t easy but it feels good and is worth the effort.
My advice is to not have exceptions to your rules. “Oh I haven’t seen these people in awhile so I will indulge because we are having a good time” or “well its the holidays” are things that kill all progress because they halt the lifestyle change. If you make excuses and exceptions you will always find “special occasions”. Make a plan and stick to it. It works!
I feel proud and hopeful and thought I should share!
