As I mentioned in my previous post, I am slowly working on updating this site. My weight loss progress page is definitely one of the pages that I have to update. I was at my lowest weight in December of 2012. After the New Year, I gained a good amount of weight back and you can see the difference if you look at my pictures throughout last year. Poor meal planning, lack of workouts, and going through a difficult phase during the first half of the year contributed to my weight gain. Every week I would try to get back on track and I would end up failing towards the end of it. I tried and tried every week and managed to gain more weight. Even thought I would fail each week, I never gave up. I knew if I kept trying that it would eventually stick. I would find my way again. I have come too far and have lost so much weight to give up. My efforts finally stuck in September 2013. Since then, I have lost the weight I gained back throughout the year and a little bit more. I am currently at my lowest weight, I have lost a total of 69 pounds, I have lost 5 pants sizes, and I can wear smaller shirts. However with my Birthday and the Holidays, it was tough once again because I was extremely busy with work and everything else. I was lucky that I only gained a pound within that month and I was able to lose it.
It’s a new year and I should not be ashamed of sharing what my actual weight is. I am so proud of what I have accomplished so far and it does not matter how long it will take me to lose this weight. What matters is that I have not given up because I know I will get there. I was at my heaviest at 240 pounds at the end of 2010. I was in between a large to an extra large for shirts and I believe the biggest pants size I wore was a 16. Today, I am at 171 pounds and I can fit into a size 6:)
