It’s been a long time since I last did an update on my weight loss, and I’ve got very good news on it. I started last August when I weighed 225 pounds, now eight months later I’ve reached my goal of 170 pounds! (For people who use kilograms, that’s 102 kg to 77 kg)
I’ve never been this thin in my adult life, and sadly I don’t think I’ve been 170 since elementary school. It’s amazing to think of carrying around 55 more pounds, that’s like having a huge dumbbell strapped to your stomach. I’ve gone from wearing size XL to Small! I never thought I’d be able to wear a small anything in my life.
I’m pretty much done losing weight at this point, although I wouldn’t mind losing a few more pounds. However, this doesn’t mean I’m going back to junk food and never going back to the gym. I’m still going to watch my calories, but now eat enough to maintain my weight, and I’ll still be hitting the gym so I can stay fit.
Maybe at some point I can put together a guide to help other people who are trying to lose weight. It’s not easy, but it’s certainly possible. I’d also be happy to answer any questions about losing weight if you have any.
Anyway, after two-thirds of a year, I’m so glad I decided to stick with it to the end. Hopefully I never go back to the old me.
