Throw Back Thursday!

Throw Back Thursday!

A velvet dress! Boy, that dates me, doesn’t it?

This photo was taken at my Confirmation ceremony (Lutheran, ELCA) back when I was 15 years old.

At this time, I was probably teetering between 180-185 lbs and wearing between a size 18 and a size 20.

I was my heaviest between the ages of 15-17, reaching my max of 214 pounds at the end of my junior year of high school.

I hang on to these photos to remind myself of how far I’ve come and the never-ending journey I am on to be healthy, fit, and happy.

Bon appetit, my friends!

    • I did both! Exercise and 80/20 diet (healthy most of the time, but allowed cheats now and then) and the weight slowly came off. I lost about 20 lbs senior year and then another 10 pounds my first year in college. Since then, I’ve dropped about 5 pounds per year. I’ve held steady at 128-130 for the past year or so.

      • It really sounds like you lost weight in a healthy way. Good job! It’s not easy, I was also pretty podgy as a teenager and overcoming bad habits was challenging. But it’s worth it because after you feel so good and comfortable in your own body.
