Here are the stats:
Current Weight: 144 lb
Highest Weight: 217 lb
Lowest Weight: I have no idea really. I was always big, until now.
Goal Weight: 140 lbs
I started this journey at 217 pounds and wearing a size 20. I'm now 144 pounds and wearing a size 8.
Here's a post from my personal LJ about How I Did It. I wrote this in January of this year--after I'd been at it for one year, so I've lost a bit more since then, but not a whole lot. The really funny (ironic?) thing is that I didn't start out doing it on purpose. My intent was never to lose weight, just to be more healthy. The weight thing came along with it, and when I realized how good I felt and how much better I was starting to look, I jumped right on the bandwagon and never went back.
I underwent a lifestyle change. I still eat in this "new" way, and I always will, and I'm still with the three times a week gym visits for cardio and weight training.
I've got "issues", but mostly they are psychological. In my mind I still see the 200+ pound, size 20 person, and that leads to some pitfalls here and there. Luckily I have an amazing fiancé to help me remember that I'm not that person anymore, and I usually get over whatever it is and move on.
Anyway, that's it for my introduction.
Hi guys! :D
