Sometimes I forget where I started (PICS)

Sometimes I forget where I started bc I’m too focused on where I want to be. I started at 245 with a goal weight of 145. The lowest I made it was 165, which felt really great to me. So great that I relaxed a bit, lost focus and gained back some weight-made it all the way back to 195. I’m currently at 177/178 and trying again to get back down. I’m not sure if I want to get all the way down to 145 on my frame. 165 was good for me but I may try for 155. I got married last month to the love of my life weighing the same I do now and still felt beautiful. Some days I feel like I’m not making any progress but I came across some old pictures today and it reminded me of how far I’ve come

    Congratulations (on the weight loss and marriage)!!! You are absolutely gorgeous and I envy your curves! That is a beautiful wedding dress!

    I think it’s great to re-evaluate once you get to 165 and see how you feel. I’ve been my current weight now a couple different times in my life and each time has looked completely different because my body composition was different. You have definitely come a long way and have much to be proud of!

    You look so gorgeous in that wedding picture, not that you weren't beautiful before.

    I have had the same experience though. It is easy to get so wrapped up in the end goal that you forget to look at where you're at. I myself was getting discouraged that I'm neither looking nor feeling as good as I did the last time I lost weight, but I have had to remind myself that my health was worse when i started this diet and I am older now than I was then. I also had to remind myself that even though it isn't the progress I wanted to have seen, it is still a huge improvement over what I was before i started my diet and that those things will come in time if I just keep working at it.

    I'm so glad you have found perspective to see past the daily grind and love yourself and taste the fruits your hard work so far.
