Lost 150 lbs to Start Enjoying My Youth
I was a depressed college student diagnosed with sleep apnea and chronic back pain when I decided if I wanted my life to change I would have to get off my butt and make some big changes and fight for the life I wanted. That was 2.5 years ago when I weighed 320lbs. Now @ 165, I am ALOT happier & most importantly healthier than I once was. I still have 30 lbs I want to lose to reach my ideal weight of 135 but I know I can do it because even though Ive had so many bad days/setbacks I want it so ...

I still have 30 lbs I want to lose to reach my ideal weight of 135 but I know I can do it because even though Ive had so many bad days/setbacks I want it so bad that no matter how long it takes me I will see that number on the scale.
Some things about my weightloss:
-I have binge eating disorder so thats why its taking me longer than most to get the weight off. I lose gain lose gain the same 5 lbs a lot of times.
-I still HATE exercising and do the minimal I have to.
- I do have excess skin but my arms and legs dont look that awful, its my stomach that makes me look larger than i am unfortunately.
Things I can do now that I couldn't do before:
-Fit into class desks/Airplane seat/Amusement park rides comfortably
-Shop in regular stores like American Eagle/ Forever 21
-Fit into size 9 shoe (I was a wide 10 sometimes 11)
-Walk miles at a brisk pace without feeling like im going to die lol
-Feel comfortable wearing mini skirts/shorts in public
-Attend social gatherings with confidence and not feel embarrassed by my weight

To become the best me physically & mentally possible by working hard and not giving up!
There are no magic pills!
My plan when I first started out and for a year and a half:
-Counted my calories/Calorie Cycling
-3-5 HRs of cardio a week
-Measured every portion using a food scale/measuring cups
-Drink 6-8 cups of water
About 1 year ago I started eating Low Carb my way though:
- 30-100 netcarbs a day, 1300-1700 calories per day. Higher calorie and carb counts for exercise days.
- 1.5 -3 hours of cardio a week
-Drink 6-8 cups of water a day
-multi vitamin, magnesium supplements, biotin
-Yerba Mate tea (Got off coffee!)
KEEP MOTIVATED: Have a reward system and find an event to lose weight for (wedding, graduation, birthday etc.)
I'm obsessed with South Korean dramas/cinema & KPOP=)
I love pink!
