I’m not going to lie, I really hesitated to post this but I wanted to show everyone how I keep motivated. My 20th post had to be a special one.
4 months ago I was diagnosed with type two diabetes, weighing 115.6kg (255 lbs) – a BMI of 40 (my god, that means I was morbidly obese!)
Today I weigh in at 91.6kg (202 lbs) – almost four stone lighter and feeling a lot healthier for it. I’m still, unfortunately, obese technically, but I am 5.5kg (12 lbs) away from being just plain overweight.
I know not many people pride themselves on being overweight, but if I could get out of the obese category and into the overweight category in the near future I would be delighted. I can’t remember the last time I wasn’t considered obese.
My then and now photos are how I keep motivated. I have to say I’m not too sure of the difference other than the fact that I know my face is a lot slimmer, but I’m looking forward to noticing the difference in my appearance myself. The strange thing is that I haven’t noticed yet – when I look in the mirror I’m not too sure I can see a difference which is why these photos remind me it’s doing something.
Keep going everyone, even if you’re sure it’s not making a difference. It is, it’s just takes time to see it.
(And please – no hate on the photos).
