Weightloss CHECK IN : dont give up

Cut down gradually, I reckon. Flavoured sparkling water is good and I came across a nice calorie free kombucha that I like of an evening. What is it that you’re mainly eating?

171lb this morning. I’m within touching distance of the “healthy weight” bmi zone. I’m always at the higher end of these things as I have quite a large build so I’m already happy with that weight.

Get yourself a gastritis, that cured me from my sugar- and salty snacks addiction.
Just joking :wink:
I sometimes still crave all the bad stuff but substitute it. For the sweet tooth: all kinds of berries and very dark chocolate, Joghurt with erythritol.
From time to time it has to be the real bad stuff and that’s okay. Don’t go to zero sugar too fast or you’ll crave it insanely.

68,2 kg and my belly size went down to 90 cm :boom::heavy_heart_exclamation:
I started with almost 74 kg and almost 98/99 cm.

Edit: I was curious when it clicked and I really started changing my diet: October 6th :muscle:
Only diet change, not really much sports.
When my tight back and neck are fixed I can start with workouts. Who knows what I’m able to if I don’t stop :star_struck:

Wanted to share something if thats okay :slight_smile: i was surprisingly shocked to see this today. I have always struggled with my weight in some form. I was a thin child, overweight adolescent. Got into drugs at 15. Became extremely thin and unhealthy. Seriously attempted help for drug addiction at 21. Gained 100lbs in 1 year due to substituting addictions from drugs to food. Lost 80lbs of that in a healthy way. Relapsed at 3 years clean and became overly thin yet again. At 31 i got pregnant, had a healthy pregnancy without drugs/alcohol. Gained some weight tho. Son was diagnosed with his brian tumor at age 2 and i gained a TON of weight. Turned to food to cope. I went to my heaviest at 275lb. I have never ever been that unhealthy and my body hurt. Id have dreams of having a heart attack and not being around for my son who needs me. I have been on a health journey for awhile now. I workout 5x a week (3 days with weight and 2 days cardio) and stick to a calorie deficit. I recently added 16/8 Intermittent Fasting. But as of today i am 228lbs. In this photo is a before and after. And the before pic wasnt even my heaviest :frowning: Im embarassed to show this bcuz i am saddened at how far I let myself go. I have always been a gym finatic and for the most part quite thin. But life got in the way. My priorities where my son and his diagnosis (as it should be). But now that hes doing much better, i am able to focus on a me just a bit. Heres a before and after. The after is me today :slight_smile: im shocked at the progress and it really motivates me to keep going.

So proud of you Dana! There is nothing here to be embarrassed by. All I see is a resilient human that life kept trying to drag down but that keeps getting up and fighting! :muscle:t3: :muscle:t3: you’re one tough cookie and I’m glad to see your progress. I hope you can feel that pride in yourself as well. :yellow_heart::yellow_heart:

I think I gained a good 2 kg in the last month. Started the gym, but, I’ve been so occupied lately that I just couldn’t organize myself. And I’m already lousy when it comes to organizing. Not when I or - in the last five years- my son and I go traveling. There I’m super organized :laughing:
But I think I’m getting back on track.
