Day 358 - One year Assessment (WITH PHOTOS)
Wednesday, June 12, 2013
I know it's a week early; but, today I got my one year assessment results from the weight loss study.
I haven't talked about it a lot lately so some of you may have no idea what I'm talking about. A year ago I joined a two year study following the impacts and results of technology on young adults abilities to achieve and maintain weight loss. I started the study at 220lbs after managing to lose ten pounds on my own in the six months prior. On the day of my assessment I weighed in a 217lbs.
Why are these numbers important?
Because I am so proud of how far I've come.
The inside of MEEE!!!!!
So, I know, these aren't the photos you were expecting.
That's what the inside of me looks like at 217lbs vs 195 vs 185lbs.
I know, it's not that discernable. Let me give you some numbers that will mean something.
Size 18/20, Size 16/18, and size 12/14.
I've lost 33lbs - and 30lbs of that was fat, 3lbs were muscle. I have gone from my tissue being 48% fat to 40%. I'm making progress. Good Progress.
I'm feeling so very, very inspired.
Of course, there's no telling what these numbers are from my highest - but, these numbers n their face are amazing.
I just had to toot my own horn today, sparklers.
