Goals & Progress
My original methods for weight loss included strict calorie counting (between 1500 – 1800 per day) and generally making my lifestyle (that of a junk food eating couch potato) healthier. Since losing my original 60 pounds but then unfortunately gaining almost all of it back, sigh, I’m going back to my weight loss roots. Calorie counting, increased activity, whole foods. For those of you who are interested in how I did lose the original weight, I detail my weight loss method and tips in the Weight Loss 101 section of the blog!
If you read this page back when this blog was created, you would have seen that I posted a specific goal weight of 165 pounds. Since then, I’ve come to realize that this entire journey isn’t about a specific number, but about me living healthy and free from my toxic relationship to food. That being said, I do still think that 165 is a good general point to aim for, but I am not 100% dead set on it. As long as I can say that I’m happy and healthy, I know that I’ll be in the right place.
Allright, so to get myself into the right mindset of posting pictures as things develop, here are a few starters. I do have my official “Before” photos (in an embarrassing bikini and everything!) as well, but here are a few fully-clothed ones for posterity’s sake.
