Does anyone else ever wish they’d taken their health and weight loss more seriously in the beginning so you’d have been where you are now, much sooner?
It’s just that for so long “Losing Weight” was the biggest goal I had in my life. Now, probably 7 years later, I’m (weight-wise) more or less where I want to be. I feel like if I’d taken it all more seriously, I could’ve been here 5 years ago. Of course I didn’t necessarily go on a diet, so much as I made lifestyle changes over the years.
It might sound twisted but some animal part of me has considered gaining a bunch of weight back just so I can lose it again. That is, I know, a seriously stupid thought, but I really liked having weight loss as a goal. I suppose setting a new fitness goal is important now. I’m nearly where I want to be with my weight, but I’m not in shape by a long shot.
This is my 5 year progress. Was about 260 in the first picture. I’d dropped nearly 30 pounds at that point. I don’t have very many pictures from my heaviest at 295. I’m 205 now; so I’ve lost around 90 pounds. https://i.imgur.com/0Zz9HKJ.jpg
