42 pounds gone!
Sunday, January 08, 2017
As of this morning I have lost 42 pounds. Why did I wait until 42 pounds to blog about my weight loss, instead of at 40 pounds? I will tell you why.
In 2011 I lost almost 60 pounds. I went from 247 to 188. I ended up gaining all that weight back, plus 40 more. That's right. I gained 100 pounds. So, I am currently one pound lighter than my 2011 starting weight. I can't tell you how excited I am to have lost those 40 additional pounds. Not only do I feel better physically, but mentally too. Now I can focus on losing the 60 pounds I had originally lost.
This past year I was diagnosed with Hashimoto's Disease and Fibromyalgia. Once I was diagnosed, I did a lot of research. I learned a lot about how my eating effects me physically and mentally. Now that I am eating healthy, I have less anxiety, more energy, and I sleep so much better. I feel like I'm finally in a place where I have all the tools I need to finally get to a healthy weight and stay there.
