I finally did it.

I've been fat all my life, obese since my tweens. I passed 300 pounds in my early teens and haven't seen the other side of it since. I've been trying so hard to get the weight off my whole life, but I didn't know what I was doing; I bought into all the misinformation, all of the fads. When those diets inevitably failed, I felt like I would be stuck forever in a body I hated and felt miserable in.

I've been on my current journey since late December. Calories in, calories out + keto. This time I started at 370 pounds and projections had my big 1 year goal of getting under 300 happening some time in early January.

I'm ahead of schedule. I'm at 299.4!!!

That number which has dogged me my whole adult life is gone, and I'm never going back. I'm going to make it all the way this time, I know it.

    Before I started on myfitnesspal, I used a keto calculator to get my TDEE and macros, and on it was a projections forecast. I hadn't paid it much heed but I seemed to be going at around the same pace it suggested, though I managed to pull ahead of it, as it were.

    Amazing what can happen in a year, huh? You are proof that the time will pass regardless of what we do. So if we can get up each day and do our best to stick to a plan, results will follow. PLEASE post in a year (or sooner!) on this thread. I love to see those continuing success stories. And you are a success!! :)
