Did my title make you think I was pregnant? HA! I figured it might for some of you, but nope!
Last Friday I celebrated 9 months of my weight loss journey! I lost 2.8 over the last month bringing my total weight loss to 53.9 pounds! I must admit, I was a little bummed at only a 2.8 loss but my Dr. was quick to snap me into place. She told me that I'm not going to lose 6-9 lbs a month anymore like I was. I've been doing this 9 months, I'm not carrying around as much weight as I was so I'm not burning as many calories during the day either. It makes sense, I just really wanted to get under 200 lbs at this appointment, and I weighed in at 200.8. Only .8 away...I was so close! But, I did everything I could. I had a great month and felt good about my food choices and exercise. I've gotten really tuned into my body and eating when I'm hungry, finding something else to do when I'm not but "think" I want to be eating. Even small progress is progress right?
I thought I'd share my "before" picture once again & then let you see the picture from last Friday. I'm pretty happy at how far I've come, I've got a long way to go yet but no rest for the weary!!
