    You look amazing! Just amazing! I wish for you much love and happiness and peace with yourself. I can tell it's been a rough road at times. Great job doing the hard work on the mental part of this journey as well :) You are loved, beautiful and enough exactly as you are <3

    Oh wow. Seeing your pictures and hearing about your journey was a joy for me. You are an inspiration and should be proud. I keep struggling and sometimes wonder if I'll ever be successful... Reading posts such as yours really helps me know it is possible. Thank you for sharing.

    Brilliant transformation! Your post is very inspiring. Many of us are so concentrated on the weight loss alone while placing the mind/body/spirit balance second. Your post inspires us all to remember to create balance in our lives to live our best life. Weight loss is only one component; you've shown us the way to balance. Thank you.

    Can I ask how long you were doing those macros in the journey? It is close to what I am doing now. Did you focus on calories, too, with it and if yes, can you share the range along the way? Thank you...

    Thank you for sharing. I am just now getting a handle on all the negativity surrounding body image and associations with food. I am 50. I am so proud of you for tackling this issue and not carrying it around. I had a bulemic mother and a pedophile father, so lots of issues.

    It is wonderful that you are sharing so you can inspire others. And it is awesome that you are looking at successes of your body as an instrument rather than just an ornament.

    I've been doing these macros for about 6 months, now. Before that, I was on a higher cut with a different nutritionist, at 115c, 40f, and 130p, but was ravenous every day and woke up teary and just... I hated it. I couldn't do it anymore. I didn't want to be hungry and miserable. So I went with a more realistic nutritionist. My changes are slow and slight, but still happening. My calories have been around 1400-1500 so still in a deficit. I haven't lost pounds in about five weeks, though.

    My nutritionist says I've put a lot of stress and change on my body in the past few years (gaining weight, losing weight, etc) and she wants to give it a rest to reset and acclimate--a more positive look at a "plateau," you could say.

    Since I'm in a body recomposition journey, it's hard to stay positive because I don't see changes on the scale, anymore. Progress now is more mental and very slight improvements are now only apparent over time. I'll be here for a few weeks until my nutritionist decides it would be okay to go on a small cut again, but I know she will never put me under 130c, 48f, and 110p.

    Thank you for your response. You are doing so well!! I find myself teary eyed with the approach you had, too, as I did that, as well.. I am still needing to change something. I may up the calories again. My road has been hard, a bit different, but hard too. I appreciate your input and hardwork. It gives me hope that I can get there. You have found some good people to work with. I have to find some again, too. GREAT JOB!!! YOU ARE WORTH IT AND MORE!! It sounds like you will achieve what you want!!!

    It's hard to experience such a change and not see a huge change every day--and just learn to be okay, finally, with what's in the mirror.

    This! You are SO right and this is SO true! My stats are very similar to yours so I love that you wrote this! We know we are changing and sometimes forget to give ourselves credit because we don't see the huge change every day. But it is drastic, and we did put in the work and we deserve to look in the mirror, take that mirror selfie and feel like a million bucks! You're beautiful and you are an inspiration!

    I need to get down to 140-150 lbs. i am 43 yrs old, 5ft 7 inches, started at 203 lbs and down to 186 in almost 5 months. I do stregth training 1-2 days/week, walk 4.63 miles 2-3 days/week. Clean eatg has really helped me and for me its a lifestyle change so I dont want to do anythg drastic that I cant keep up with. I follow 80 grams of Protein, 50-60g of carbs, rest is fat and stay within 1300 cals or so. I used to do 1500 cals with 120-130 gm of protein, 100 gm of carbs but did not lose wt. it would goup and down and was frustrating!
    do you think I’m eating too less and wt loss will stop? Would really like to hear from folks who have been there, done this successfully and continuing to see progress. I also have hypothyroidism thats under control based on medication. Have had it for 25 years.
