No, I didn’t fall off the wagon. My clothes are too big! That’s right, folks, I have made major leaps toward my fitness goals. Since it has been so long since I’ve blogged, let me give you a brief outline and update of my journey so far.
The Beginning: When I posted the first blog entry, I weighed 138.8 pounds. While I didn’t look horrible in clothes, I was not at my prime fitness. On good weeks, I exercised 2 times a week. My diet wasn’t horrible, but it was not the best either. I would binge and overeat on occasion and I was constantly struggling with bloating and weight fluctuations.
The Intermission: I started running everyday and eating a lot healthier. At first I didn’t see any results and got frustrated, but then I increased my water intake and lost a few pounds right away. I finally got down to 132. My weight goal was to get under 130 and stay consistently under that point. Those last two pounds were stubborn. I had begun running 2-4 miles, 5 times a week. Even though I had not reached my weight goals, I was feeling so much better and had much more energy.
The Present: For the last two weeks, I have weighed consistently between 126.2 and 126.8. I have not been this skinny since I was a teenager! I was told that I probably wouldn’t fit into my wedding dress after a year of marriage. I guess, they were right, mine is too large! I still have some toning to do, but I am feeling awesome! The best part about this experience is that I’m no longer afraid of food. Before I would eat food that was bad for me and hate myself for it! I have finally found the right balance for my life, my health, and my body. I don’t feel out of control or deprived, I feel in control and empowered! Now, I need to stop here because I really could gush on and on about how great I feel, but I think you get my point.
I will post some more useful blogs soon, but I had to share my excitement a little bit.
Until next time,
~E, a skinny (not so) fat (anymore) girl.
