I’m down to 226 lbs!!

That means I finally hit my first goal weight! (227 lbs)
I don’t know why the weight keeps coming off.. I haven’t been eating that great or exercising at all.. lol
But I guess I eat a lot of fruit now.. so maybe that’s what’s making the difference?

Guess who’s down to 228 Lbs?

Me!
I don’t really have any recent full body photos, but here’s a photo of me at my highschool reunion! My face looks a lot fatter than it is though.. and this photo really doesn’t do me much justice in the waist department.. but oh well. Here you go.
(By the way, just a reminder, my starting weight was 242.. and this is the first time in months that I’ve been under 230!)



Only 1 lb left to go before I reach my first goal weight!
Then only 28 lbs to go before I get under 200 for the first time in YEARS!

I haven’t been updating, because I haven’t been doing much in the way of dieting or exercising.. but I think I’ve lost a few inches, so I thought I’d show you.
Just to refresh your memory as to how I looked when I started this blog, here’s my before picture again (black undies).. that was me around 242 lbs.
The second photo (grey undies), is me now (around 233 lbs). I have only lost a total of 12 lbs, and I did gain a few of those lbs back before I took the new pics.. but I’ve lost inches for some reason. Could be that I am losing fat but gaining muscle.
I did get back on my hormones (the surplus of estrogen was contributing to my weight gain) and my meds and everything.. and I’ve been taking a multivitamin, and vitamin D supplement.. and eating a shit tonne of protein (and having protein shakes quite often, as per my dietician’s request).
Do you notice much of a difference?

I lost a total of 12 lbs since March 22nd, but I’ve plateaued

.. Mostly due to the fact that my food problem got in the way again. Trying to lose weight with compulsive over eating disorder is proving to be quite challenging..
The diet pills kill my appetite for the most part.. and that’s great.. but they also give me panic attacks and make me grind my jaw uncontrollably. I’ve decided I’m going to abstain from taking them until I get rid of most of the major stressors in my life, then go back to taking them. They’re great if I don’t have any stress in my life.. but not so great if I have a lot going on.. like breakups.. and failing school.. and possibly being bipolar. All 3 of those things happened / are happening right now.. and taking the pills just amplifies the depression and anxiety.. so it’s not good for me right now. I need to try and be zen for a while.
In the meantime.. I’m going to have to figure out how to stop eating this garbage I’ve been eating..
I was doing so good for so long.. but then I failed school and got dumped at the same time.. and I turned to food for comfort. It’s the only thing that made me feel better. It’s the only comfort I have in my life right now.. so things are just really hard.
I haven’t given up on losing weight. I’ve just hit a point in my weight loss journey where my mental health has become more important. I need to do what makes me happy right now. Not that anything really makes me happy.. but.. you know what I’m saying.
I have nothing in my life that gives me joy anymore.. so I can’t deprive myself of the one thing that makes things feel even just a little bit better.
That’s not to say I’m eating like 5,000 calories a day. I’m somewhat staying within the caloric amount I’d need to stay in to maintain my weight..
It’s just that I’m not eating the healthiest foods right now. But I think I’m at peace with that, and I don’t hate my body too much at the moment.

Thanks to those of you who are still following me.

10.5 lbs lost

Starting weight: 242 lbs
Current weight: 231.5 lbs

Not long til I hit my first goal weight.. and 66.5 lbs to go til I reach my ultimate goal weight.

I’m not actually sure how the weight keeps coming off of me though.. I haven’t been eating very healthy this past week, and I haven’t really been exercising at all..
But every time I weigh myself, the number is less and less. It’s so weird..

Weight loss tip:

Replace donuts, pastries, and baked goods with sweet succulent fruits!
I’ve been doing this for almost two weeks now, and my cravings for baked goods are starting to go away!
Fruit can be just as delicious, and it’s SO much healthier for you!
I’ve lost 6 lbs in 2 weeks, mostly because I replaced all those sweets with fruits!
