I have been using my fitness pal for a long time, but I was always really bad at updating my weight on it. I would be cognizant of my weight loss, but forgot you could change it on the app (haha). Well I had been telling people I was about 80 pounds down in total, when I decided to go ahead and update my weight for once. I looked at the heaviest weight that I had logged and I was surprised at the number. I didn't remember it being that high.
My heaviest weight was last recorded at almost 230 lbs. I thought I had began my journey around 220 and it didn't sink in until I logged my current weight and saw the little congratulations of my weight loss. I was in shock. It said I had lost a total of 93 pounds.
Which makes sense (I am 134 at the moment), but since I lost the weight slowly and steadily, I don't think it had hit me yet just how much I have lost.
So, that's my little piece of "success", gained mainly through portion size control, calorie counting, and discovering I REALLY love to lift weights.
I hope everyone is having a fantastic week and that they also find ways to move their bodies in a way that brings them joy, and continue to eat in ways that sustain and fuel them to live their best lives.
