Oh my god guys.
It has officially been a month since I joined the gym. At my weigh-in this morning I weighed 214.0lb even! That’s 8lbs down since I joined the gym, and 19.6lbs since I started my journey!! In around two months! I am FREAKING OUT I am so happy!! (Plus I’ve gained lots of muscle in my thighs & triceps, so imagine how much weight I could’ve potentially lost of I wasn’t strength training either!)
Y’all. I just went and told my mother and I was just so happy and she was so happy for me. I weighed around 215 or so in the beginning of my senior year of high school. In January of that year–so it was still my junior year–I was around 179. In April I was in a really bad car accident and was on bed rest for four months and on lots of medicine that made my appetite insanely large. So for four months of not moving except to go to the bathroom, and eating more than I usually was, I gained the 35lbs right there. And then over the next year and a half I gained an extra 15, probs just from binge eating and lack of exercise. So now I am down to what I was after my car accident. And that’s a huge step for me!
Y’all, this is great. I am so so so ecstatic! :)
