It’s almost 2 am and I was looking through old photos and….wow.
The left was after sophomore year of college where I gained about 25 lbs in a matter of 3 months, due to a combination of factors. The right is this past fall after taking off only 10 lbs of the initial weight gain (although I do suspect more fat loss than this, balanced out by muscle gain).
It’s taken me almost 2 years to lose the weight that I gained in a very short amount of time. All I can say that the experience was often very frustrating but I always tried to keep a positive outlook with my body image.
Whatever your goals are, the best advice I can give is to be patient and preserver.
