I’ve been reluctant to share my journey this year, however I’ve been told some see it as inspirational. Many find the reasons a thing can’t be done, I choose to find the reasons and ways a thing can be done. And. Then. Do. It. As I get older, I become quieter and let the results speak for themselves.
How did I lose over 75 pounds this year? I ate less food.
Want more details? I worked with a nutritionist who is also a personal trainer and followed her advice.
This next part is where the pushback usually begins when I share. I didn’t exercise. I allowed my body time to rest and heal. I ate less food. I ate vegetables, fruits, whole grains, legumes, mushrooms, nuts, seeds, herbs, and spices in infinite tasty combinations.
My way isn’t the only way, but it worked for me. My guess is that it would work for most anyone with strong enough reasons to pull them forward through the tough moments.
In total, I’ve lost over 135 pounds from my highest weight. I’m not sure what’s next yet for me. I’m still working that out. I feel like I could write a book from all of the lessons I’ve learned through this year’s weight loss journey and ones from the past.
Before figuring out what’s next, I think I need to take the win and celebrate it. Which brings me to a question, how do you celebrate big accomplishments?
