Hi guys ^_^
I'm so happy to write this post XD because after about 9 months... I'm finally happy with my weight =DDDD
Let's look at my weight loss progress again shall me? XD
LOL I CRINGE.
This was when I lost about 5 kg (11lb)
I was so frustrated for the longest time... I was at 51kg and unable to breakthrough for about 4 months. No matter how diligent I was with working out, how careful I was with eating healthily, I was at a plateau. My initial goal was just 50kg, so being stuck at 51kg was excruciatingly frustrating.
Somehow I started losing weight after I returned to the US O_o I wasn't even working out (hahah kind of stopped working out since returning to Taiwan for the summer cuz it was SO hot... every time I worked out I felt like I was gonna have a heatstroke), but then I started noticing the the needle on the scale moving to the left XD I realized it was because I was eating much much less than I used to... at that time simply because I didn't feel all that hungry and only ate when I was hungry, and stopped as soon as I felt full.
So being highly encouraged =D I started working out/dieting again, but this time, focusing on dieting instead of working out.
And now I'm 48kg (≧▽≦) (≧▽≦) (≧▽≦) (≧▽≦) (≧▽≦) (≧▽≦) (≧▽≦) (≧▽≦)
Hahahah the scale says 47.5kg... but I consider myself 48kg because that's my normal/consistent weight (how much I weigh during the day/at night... as opposed to how much I weigh in the morning). I'm SO happy now!! I haven't seen myself below 50kg in years!!!!!!!
Honestly this picture doesn't look too different from the one I took in April but I lost about 3kg since (3kg=6.6lb). Not that obvious in pictures but definitely visible in person =D I've had A LOT of my friends coming up to me telling me I've become so thin/skinny XDXDXDXD hahah you can tell I'm totally ecstatic XD what you guys don't know is that the word "thin" or "skinny" has never been said to me my entire life (although right now I still wouldn't call myself skinny haha cuz I'm not). It's true I've never been too big or fat but I've never been the skinny one. My physique is just naturally more plump (that combined with the fact I'm short T^T) and I've always been the one being made fun of at family reunions... like "Been eating well huh?" or "Getting kind of chubby here aren't we?" "Wahh dude what have you been eating in America?!" I know my relatives don't say it in a mean way (it's just the way the Taiwanese culture is... ppl can call you fat without meaning to offend/insult you). So yeah, this is probably the only time in my life I've heard me being described as thin XD Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee *happy dance*
LOL oh gawd. I LE CHUBBY. You guys can tell my face has slimmed down right?!?!! =DDDD
My arms are still fat... but ACTUALLY they are already better than before xD Nothing I can do about my arms it's just the way my body was built *shrugs* chubby arms for life TvT lol!!!
Ladies and gentlemen (?)!! As of this month I finally fit into my smallest jeans from Guess =D HELL YESSSSS *gives self a big pat on the back*
So if you're curious how much weight I've lost since I started trying... I initially weighed about 56kg (123.2lb) (I'm not sure about this number though because I weighed myself last winter break before I went off to Boston... and I might have gained even more after that because I gorged myself like there's no tomorrow while I was there -.-|||), and now I weigh about 48kg (about 105.6lb), so
I lost a total of 8kg (17.6lb)
I'm very happy with my weight now, and I'm not planning to lose more. I'm just gonna try really really REALLY hard to maintain it. Since winter is coming it will be a bit more difficult cuz I always have the urge to stuff my face when it gets cold -.-"
Happy for a slimmer face XD although I still have double chin. Which has vastly improved actually cuz I really don't notice it as much as I used to.
That's all I'm sharing today =D GOOD LUCK to all the ppl who are trying to lose weight!!!!!! DON'T GIVE UP. Stay focused. YOU CAN DO IT. You have to work for it, cuz I definitely worked really hard for my results, but it's well worth it. I feel so much more confident and happy and healthy now =D
If it helps anyone... I was inspired by Julia from MissChievous.
I was amazed by her transformation. I don't know why, but her weight loss experience just spoke to me more than any other weight loss videos out there. I think it's because her results are amazing, but at the same time really believable, if that makes any sense?
Hope you guys have a lovely day! My university was shut down for the day cuz of the hurricane... so I'm wrapping myself comfortably in a blanket now hehehe.
