I was weighing in at 147 pounds. I was hiding my body, pretty sad and depressed. I was inactive and overeating. I am thankful I DID get over my fear of the scale and get on it last September and saw the damage I have done over the year. 15 pounds gained over the previous spring and summer.
Today, I am weighing in at 124.6.
Over 22 pounds gone, and I have been maintaining in this range for over a month now. Feeling pretty proud. I am not hiding my body now, I am neither sad nor depressed. I am active and eating clean. What a change!
About 15% of my body weight gone.
It hasn't been easy, exactly. Though I love eating paleo and love being active, it is a struggle to do what I know is right for me. I occasionally do not do what is right for me. But that is a small percentage of the time! I want my body to be healthy and strong. I want it to be fit and active. I want to go through life with energy and passion.
I won't let weight drag me down, not now or ever again.
