While my 2016 was like most people’s, I do have to say I’ve done at least one thing I am very proud of. Over the course of this year I lost 60+ pounds just by doing a better job being active and monitoring what I put inside my body. Not only do I feel healthier, I feel more confident. I always promised and told myself I would lose weight and 2016 was the year I decided to take that step.
I was about 130/135 lbs before, and about 111 after. These two months were definitely a lot of hard work but it’s beyond worth it- I have never been happier or more confident in my body :) Update: If you want to lose weight, you need to change your mindset. Don’t focus on the pounds lost, focus on the strength and health gained.
So I appreciate that my after photo is cropped at the side so it’s more difficult to see progress. However, mega progress in just wearing a swimsuit and short shorts and feeling comfortable! Let alone then being able to share a photo of me looking like that on the Internet!!! Whoop whoop.
Trying to pump myself up for the inevitable gain I’ll see on the scales tonight, but I went on holiday and it was great and I had lovely food, and even if I’ve undone a few pounds, I haven’t undone the whole 3 stone. So I still deserve to be please with myself :)
