On September 1st, I became a new person. I became a person that cared about herself enough to try to be healthy. I become a person with the will to achieve healthy. I became a person who took responsibility and control when it came to my own health and nutrition.
When I stepped on the scale September 1st, I weighed 384.4. Not my highest weight but I'd lost 5.6 lbs since the end of June without putting any real effort into it. Today, 28 weeks and a day later, I stepped on the scale for my official weekly weigh in. 284.4. Exactly 100 lbs in 197 days. That averages out to just about 1/2 a pound a day.
I know pride isnt's always a good thing but today I'm ok with saying I'm proud of myself. It's been challenging. There have been sacrifices. It's required a lot of determination and will power where before I just didn't have it. But the reward is I'm well on my way to being a much healthier person.
