starting weight- 230
last week- 157
current- 156

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.

    Raise the roof for the hour glass figures.....personally I know lots of men who prefer hour glass of stick have done great! Would you want to do it all over again if a magic wand would make you skinny at the end.

    Hourglass is good! I am struggling, too. My goal is 175, but for the past 2 weeks, my body has gone resistant to change. I am shaking up the intake somewhat and refocusing on some exercise, but figured my body will tell me where it should be. Hang in there. We can do it! We have come so far!

    Skinny is not necessarily healthy. I think the progress you've made has extended your life signficantly. Congratulate yourself. And there's nothing wrong with a few curves emoticon
