I realized something pretty significant a few moments ago: as of yesterday, I’ve officially lost more than 90 lbs since high school.
At my peak, I weighed in around 214 lbs at the end of junior year.
I was large. I was exhausted. I was not comfortable in my own skin.
It dawned on me today that yesterday’s weigh in (under 124) meant that I had officially crossed the 90 lbs marker.
Am I doing the math right? Have I really lost the body weight of a 13 year old? Wow.
I never imagined it possible to be this weight. I never imagined wearing clothing from the mall or not being stared at by people as I ate. It really seems to be sinking in today how far I’ve come.
I’m not normally one to take bathing suit shots (not a fan of my stomach due to the excess skin), but I wanted to at least take a moment to commemorate this milestone in my journey of weight loss, fitness, and overall good health.
I feel strong. Proud. Accomplished.
Today is a good day.
Bon appetit, my friends!
