LTD - 30 lbs which is GOAL!
Today was going to be goal no matter what, but I did officially reach it! My biggest NSV to match was having excellent results from my physical, with normal cholesterol levels (my cholesterol was borderline high at my highest weight). More than the number on the scale, the improvement in my health has been my biggest delight and victory.
I wanted to thank our entire team for your support through my journey! January 2021 will be my 2 year anniversary with this team. I was injured much of 2019 and was sidelined from weight loss, until @sleepymom5 helped pull me back in (thank you!) The pandemic resulted in another setback, but I refocused and recommitted in the spring. I also wanted to thank @hope002 for sharing so openly about her experience with IF, and answering my many questions. IF became a very important tool in my journey, and it led me to read and follow Toronto’s own, Dr. Jason Fung, who wrote the Obesity Code.@1theresamcvean and @minstrelofsarcasm, thank you so much for your leadership! I would like to move to cheer squad for December, and am thinking about moving over to the maintenance zone after that, where I still check in weekly here.
I have discovered that the journey never really ends, and I need to stay focused to maintain. I will be setting some new fitness and maintenance goals over the next few weeks and through 2021.
I am really not great with photo tracking and before/after photos. I did make one though. I was saying to Pam that I have mixed feelings about before/after photos, because I feel like I am saying that my old self was lacking somehow. I have rediscovered self-love and respect on this journey, and know that my past self was doing a great job through stressful times, and doing the best that she could with the knowledge that she had. So I am posting that photo, and a photo of me in my goal reward jacket (a Canada Goose bomber).
I will continue checking in, especially with the upcoming holidays. Thanks again everyone!
