starting weight- 230
last week- 157
it has been a year, march 1st, that i started my weight loss journey!
-74lbs total and -29 inches.
hips -12 inches
thighs -9 inches
waist -8 inches
i seem to be floating between 157 and 156 for the past month, it is driving me nuts! i would really love to hit the 145ish mark, but i am not sure my body will get there.
i am extremely proud of the weight loss i have achieved, but when i look at myself i don't feel "finished" yet. i still see my old body with all the curves i don't want.
i need to try to embrace the fact that no matter how much weight i lose, the shape of my body is going to remain the same. i will always have an hourglass shape. i thought after losing 75lbs, i would be skinny, but i still have a long way to go to get there, mentally.
hopefully it'll click soon, and i won't have the need to be discontent with what i have accomplished, and learn to start loving it and be proud, even if i stop losing weight. i didn't realize how much of a mentally emotional journey this would be, apart from the physical aspect. EVERYTHING needs to transform, not just the body, to start to see things differently.
