While I don’t consider myself to have reached my ultimate goal, one huge milestone for me was my wedding day! Weightloss is something that I’ve struggled with through most of my adult life, so I wanted to share my results.
I started my weightloss journey at 260 lbs. My hips were 52 inches, my waist was 50 inches.
This first picture is me at my first dress shopping experience in July of last year. At this point, I had already lost 25 pounds. My hips were now about 50 inches, my waist was about 26 inches.
This second picture is me on my wedding day, a week and a half ago. I now weight 195 lbs. My hips are 46 inches and my waist is 40 inches.
When you have a lot to lose, it can be incredibly discouraging! I found it a lot more motivating to think about how much weight I had already lost, instead of how much I had to lose. It also helps to think about how you’re improving outside of the scale. Lastly, I found baby steps to be the key! I made small changes to my diet, because I found it a lot more manageable. Oh, and a support system of some sort! I have a great group of people cheering me along the way.
