75 pounds...Yeah Baby!
Today was the day...oh yes it was. Today I reached my interim weight loss goal...75 pounds. I started this journey on February 6th of this year, and I have dropped that much weight. And I can't say how many inches because I only started keeping track of that a month or so ago (sorry that I didn't in the beginning). I lost the last 25 pounds since May 14th. Now, if you read my blog you will know that I am losing weight by eating whole, healthy foods and lost of exercise. Nothing else. No meds...no surgeries...no quick fixes. I decided to only eat good foods...lots of fruits and veggies. Barely anything processed. And it has been surprisingly easy. I don't count calories or fat grams. I eat what I want and when I want. But I actually don't have any cravings for junk and my appetite has dropped significantly. I actually have to make sure that I eat enough food, because my appetite has changed. I occasionally have a treat, but it is rare. I no longer reward myself with food and I do not eat emotionally. It has been a huge transition for me.
