Almost 15 months out and down 85 lbs.

Aug 15, 2009

Sometimes I'm crazy happy about the weight I've lost but sometimes I'm upset that I'm not at goal yet.  I still have about 20 lbs. to go.  It just seems to me that so many others have already lost all their weight in less time.
Anyway, I try to tell myself that I am lucky because I have good restriction and I can still eat pretty much everything.  I can eat pizza, pasta, rice, salad.  I just have to eat very slowly to avoid a stuck episode and I can only have a small amount for example 1 slice of pizza or a half cup of rice or pasta.  It's taught me to not obsess about food.  I can eat it, I just allow myself small amounts.  I even have dessert a few times a week!

I try to tell myself that I am not deprived and therefore do not have to overdo it when it comes to food.  My diet is so much healthier now and I exercise 5-6 days a week for 1-2 hours.  I feel great and I shouldn't compare my loss to other people.  We are all different.

On the bright side my loss has been slow but I have no excess skin and I am very toned from all the exercise and the weight is still coming off, just at a snails pace approx. 4 lbs. a month but I'll get there with time and effort.

Oh yeah, new haircut for new healthier body.  No need to hide behind hair anymore.  Feels good!
