This is crazy. 53 lbs since 8/26/12

I'm 5'5
SW 242 8/26
CW 189 12/29

Oh man oh man. You can really do anything you put your mind to.
What did I do? I stop letting other people tell me what I could and couldn't do. I moved away from home at 20 with some courage and a prayer. Got out of a abusive relationship, and really began to love myself. The most important thing I did was built a relationship with God and change me completely.

August 26- Sept 26 I did 30 Day Shred and lost 21 lbs.
September 26- Nov 26 I ran on the treadmill. 3.5-4.0 mph for an hour every weekday. Weekends I did nothing lol.
Nov 26- to now.... Lol idk! I was 202 Nov 26. 197 on Dec 2nd, my 21st bday! ;) Now I'm 189. I seriously just said holy ****.

I went Vegetarian up until my birthday smh lol but I'm starting again for 2013.
Haven't had a soda in four months, fried foods, I've prob had 7 small bags of Cheetos or Doritos since 8/26. Hey that's good for me lol. No juice. Only water. Only water. Only water. I drink a gallon per day. Fish, Shrimp wild caught. Egg whites, nature valley bars, basically only healthy stuff. No meat! No eating out! Unless its TOM lol and I'm craving pizza. Maybe I did it 3x. OMG no fast food! Did I say only water? I keep around 1200 calories per day. And I've been to Roscoes twice. Lol beast.

I am now happy. No more suicidal thoughts. I found my purpose and I'm pursuing it now. Striving to be that Proverbs 31 woman.
My GW is 140 lbs but y'all know I'm getting to 128 right lol? I've been fat all my life and its disgusting. My grandma used to tell me when I was little that I was fat and ugly... Sent her a picture of me last week and she called me crying asking for forgiveness.

Man.., y'all can all do this. I went from loving other people too much... Wait wtf am I really writing this?!!!!!
Lol tears. I LOVE MFP Forreal!

    You've done an amazing job turning your life around, getting rid of the negative and bringing so much positivity into your world, you deserve to be proud of your achievements and happy in your life, and having seen your pictures I have to say that even if you were overweight as a child there's no way you were ugly, you are beautiful, you have learned so much in your young life about how cruel and ignorant some people can be, just think of what a great role model you could be for young girls who are experiencing the same attitudes you faced and hating themselves because of it and not believing they are worthy of a better life. This is just the beginning for you :flowerforyou:

    Be proud of yourself not just for the weight loss and dedication, but for getting yourself out of an abusive relationship and realizing that you are WORTH more than that... your story brought tears to my eyes... Keep up the positive attitude and the possibilities are endless :)

    What a wonderful thing you have done! Most importantly you have been given a gift from God and it's good that you are thankful for His blessings. Continue to work hard and be thankful and realize that God loves you just the way you are and he wants you to be succesful in all you do. Remember God's word says "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me", and you are showing that is true!
