Weight loss progress photo!

Alright, I know I said I wouldn’t upload one until I lost 20 pounds, but I can see a pretty big difference now and I want to share it with you all.

I’ve lost a total of 16.3 pounds (7.4kg). It took me 8 weeks to get to where I am now. And no, I didn’t try any fad diets or skinny teas. What I did was change my lifestyle and kept track of what I ate everyday (I used an app called myfitnesspal). Basically, I now eat healthy foods and a lot of protein. I also drink a lot of water per day and try to go for uphill walks at least 3 days a week.

As you can see in the photos, the majority of the weight has come off my lower back and legs. When standing front on I cant see a huge difference compared to what I can see side on, but soon enough the weight will come off my belly too. Also the shorts in the picture are now two sizes too big!

My posture has also improved since losing weight, I stand up straighter, and get way less back pain. I also have a lot of energy. I went from being tired and lazy all the time, to waking up energized and not being able to sleep past 8am!

Proud to say that I’ll never go back to the person I was in the before picture. :)

I forgot to add that I do have treats, it’s not strictly healthy foods. I live by the 80/20 rule, so basically if I eat well 80% of the time, I can have 20% treat foods. Say for example, I ate really well for the last 3 days; so I’m eating lasagna for breakfast today. As long as the food still fits into my daily calorie allowance (which is around 1600) then I’ll have it. Some days I use up to 300 calories on chocolate. It’s best not to deprive your body from the foods you enjoy, if you do then there’s a higher chance you’ll give up.

adorability:

I love when you become so close with someone that you can see parts of each other in one another and you begin to say the same things and steal lines from one another and have a similar sense of humor and can exchange an inside joke with just a glance you don’t even have to talk because you have such a strong connection with them and you can sit in comfortable silence but also talk for hours it’s really hard to find that kind of compatibility
