Yay! Height would probably be good to add for perspective, so I added it to mine 🙂
Current Weight: 128 lb
Current Height: 5’2″ (1.57 m)
Goal Weight: 118 lb
Goal Date: End of the 2018 year (but will continue this as a therapeutic thing until my wedding)
Weight loss so far: I got down to 123 lb a few months ago and then zooped up to 130 lb 🙁 So I lost 2 lb since 15 days ago, but I’m an emotional eater sometimes and my fiance in Afghanistan so the nerves been tough.
Reason: To lose the weight I gained in college (was 118 lb when I graduated high school)
Program: Sticking to a 1000-calories/day diet, which is actually normal for me in a good mentality – just need to avoid emotional binging. And I’m doing four runs a week.
Eating style: Intermittent fasting (eating from noon to 8 pm only) – with the emotional binging a couple times a week – ugh.
Fav. Healthy Snack: I love celery and peanut butter omg
Favourite Exercise: I actually love running! I do four half-hour runs a week.
Struggled this week with: I binged on chicken nuggets Monday night while crying for my fiance and watching Legally Blonde. Struggle is real.

Post # 15
Current Weight: 155 lb
Current Height: 5’5″
Goal Weight: 135-140 lb
Goal Date: no specific date, just a goal I’d like to reach
Weight loss so far: I’ve been this weight for about a year, after putting on about 10 pounds from our wedding.
Reason: To lose the last few pounds and feel more confident. I reached my goal weight a few years ago, but did it very unhealthily. I’ve been mentally healthy with food and my weight and think it’s finally time to try to get back to that weight the right way.
Program: I tracked calories and macros for years, but have been having success maintaining while eating intuitively. I “treat” myself more than I should, and know that I need to focus more on proteins and veggies. I feel best (and slim down) when I’m on a Whole30-esq plan, but won’t be as strict. I am an avid gym rat. I have only been running (4x a week), but will be shortening my runs and adding in 3 days of strength to start, upping to get back to 5 days of strength again.
Eating style: Intuitive eating, with years of knowlege of what I should be eating to fuel my body.
Fav. Healthy Snack: grapes! I could eat fruit all day.
Favourite Exercise: I have been training for half marathons all year, so I’m going to focus more on weight training again, which I love, and put distance running on the back burner after my race.
Struggled this week with: Period cravings – mac and cheese and desserts. I am strong when things aren’t right in front of me, but D.H. love unhealthy foods and frequently brings them home. Gotta get him on board.
Did awesome this week with: I have gotten all my runs in this week (~25 miles) and had an awesome leg day that has left me sore for three days and counting eek! Very excited to be lifting again.
