I didn’t lose 225 pounds.
I lost one pound 225 times.
Weight loss is like life: your results will be dictated entirely on your daily habits. In other words, who you are is entirely based on what you do. Wars are won through winning individual battles. There will be small losses along the way: setbacks, mistakes, scale anomalies, plateaus, holidays, breakups and more. I experienced all of this and more.
What is important is the direction you persist in facing. All you really need to do is lose one pound a few times, right?
