Feeling really down about seeing no or little progress and just wanting to quit and sleep all day long. Also feeling jittery since college starts on June 9 and I feel that my weight/looks will just scare people off and make them not want to talk to me or something.
So I was fixing my photos and found a picture of me at my starting weight (170lbs) and I even remember thinking about being afraid of not changing and seeing no progress. But here I am, 9 months later! Even though there were times I gave up (and still do feel like not going to the gym/wanting to binge), I just feel glad I had the motivation to get up and keep moving forward. I still want to lose another 25lbs, just to reach my ugw and finally be in the healthy weight section. I don’t want to end up very prone to asthma and be diagnosed as diabetic, overweight or have heart problems later on in life.
It takes time, vegetables/fruits, and a lot of motivation. But in the end, it’s so worth it.
I’m 5”3 and my left photo I was 170lbs; now I’m 145lbs. 🙂
