Figured it’s been a while since I posted a progress pic. I’ve hit a bit of a plateau, which is frustrating. I know 85 pounds is nothing to sneeze at, but my goal is to hit 100 pounds by my 2-year veganniversary which is in July. So only 15 more pounds to go, which shouldn’t be too difficult (key word: shouldn’t) but I, like many others, struggle with the stagnant maintaining weight that often is a result of losing weight. In the beginning the weight comes off super quick, but then your body inevitably adapts and adjusts to your new healthy lifestyle so you have to work even harder to keep losing. But all I have to do is look at pictures like this when I need a little extra motivation :) What are some of your plateau-busters that you can share with me??
Before: July 2013 After: January 2016
It’s seriously so crazy to look back at pictures and see how far I’ve come. Losing the weight has been so much of a mental game for me and I’m really thankful that I was able to kick many of my old habits and realize what’s best for my health. Thank you, as always, for your kind words of support. It means so much to me and I’m very grateful to have such an encouraging community cheering me on! 😁
