Height: 5'11"

I hit my goal weight today! :^) Thought I'd share because seeing other people's stories has inspired me, and it's nice to know people are on similar journeys.

I’ve been watching my macros, and sticking to 1350kcal/day the first 2 months, then I went down to 1200kcal/day for 2 months. I am now slowly increasing the calories until I figure out how many calories work for maintaining my weight. I don’t do any cardio or exercise, but I do walk a lot and average 12000 steps/day.

Words cannot describe how much better I feel today than I did in the first picture! It really was just a matter of changing habits for me. I'd gone down a spiral of binge-eating almost daily, and was basically addicted to sugar. Within 2 months of logging everything I eat and sticking to my calorie-limit, my cravings completely disappeared. I really didn't expect to feel so satisfied whilst controlling what I eat. So worth it! :^)

Good luck to everyone starting! <3

    I was going to post earlier that your set of 5 pics are very inspirational, especially for those who aren't seeing a difference in the early days of weight loss, but was too into lazing in the sun with a cold beer.

    I should have.

    I have already linked to this post in a thread where someone was feeling a little discouraged by visible results, I hope you don't mind.

    Cheers, h.

    Hey! Thank you! And that's totally cool, I'm happy for my progress to be shared if it gives people the motivation they need to continue (:

    Forcing myself to take pictures every few weeks has really helped me continue. Even the 2nd picture was a shock when I compared it to the first! I never would have seen the difference otherwise.

    Seriously - this should be a sticky! No fads, no magic pills, no messing, just plain old sticking to calories in/calories out.

    That is how it's done, missus. Fantastic job! :)
