My Rants/Thoughts
  1. push yourself to get up before the rest of the world - start with 7am, then 6am, then 5:30am. go to the nearest hill with a big coat and a scarf and watch the sun rise.

    2. push yourself to fall asleep earlier - start with 11pm, then 10pm, then 9pm. wake up in the morning feeling re-energized and comfortable.

    3. erase processed food from your diet. start with no lollies, chips, biscuits, then erase pasta, rice, cereal, then bread. use the rule that if a child couldn’t identify what was in it, you don’t eat it.

    4. get into the habit of cooking yourself a beautiful breakfast. fry tomatoes and mushrooms in real butter and garlic, fry an egg, slice up a fresh avocado and squirt way too much lemon on it. sit and eat it and do nothing else.

    5. stretch. start by reaching for the sky as hard as you can, then trying to touch your toes. roll your head. stretch your fingers. stretch everything.

    6. buy a 1L water bottle. start with pushing yourself to drink the whole thing in a day, then try drinking it twice.

    7. buy a beautiful diary and a beautiful black pen. write down everything you do, including dinner dates, appointments, assignments, coffees, what you need to do that day. no detail is too small.

    8. strip your bed of your sheets and empty your underwear draw into the washing machine. put a massive scoop of scented fabric softener in there and wash. make your bed in full.

    9. organise your room. fold all your clothes (and bag what you don’t want), clean your mirror, your laptop, vacuum the floor. light a beautiful candle.

    10. have a luxurious shower with your favourite music playing. wash your hair, scrub your body, brush your teeth. lather your whole body in moisturiser, get familiar with the part between your toes, your inner thighs, the back of your neck.

    11. push yourself to go for a walk. take your headphones, go to the beach and walk. smile at strangers walking the other way and be surprised how many smile back. bring your dog and observe the dog’s behaviour. realise you can learn from your dog.

    12. message old friends with personal jokes. reminisce. suggest a catch up soon, even if you don’t follow through. push yourself to follow through.

    14. think long and hard about what interests you. crime? sex? boarding school? long-forgotten romance etiquette? find a book about it and read it. there is a book about literally everything.

    15. become the person you would ideally fall in love with. let cars merge into your lane when driving. pay double for parking tickets and leave a second one in the machine. stick your tongue out at babies. compliment people on their cute clothes. challenge yourself to not ridicule anyone for a whole day. then two. then a week. walk with a straight posture. look people in the eye. ask people about their story. talk to acquaintances so they become friends.

    16. lie in the sunshine. daydream about the life you would lead if failure wasn’t a thing. open your eyes. take small steps to make it happen for you.

I’ve submitted before but this is just a reminder to keep going. This was 5 months of work…I’ve maintained for the last 6+ months but haven’t really gained/lost so much.
But I’m ready again, seeing the difference that I have already done makes me ready for the rest of the changes that can happen!
I’m 5’9 for reference. Highest weight in the picture was probably around 250lbs, and the during is around the 185lb range

copious-vitality:

So I was discouraged for awhile. I had lost 80 pounds a week ago and had been at a plateau for about a month. I couldn’t understand why I wasn’t losing weight. Then I realized that I eased back on my diet a little to where I was eating maybe one bad item in one meal a day. I’m not mad at myself for doing this, because I was still living healthy and the reason I did it was because I’ve grown so comfortable with my body and my life that I didn’t really care that my progress had slowed. Then, I started to feel fat in a negative way again. I was feeling unhappier than I was at my heaviest. I was feeling down on myself and didn’t feel beautiful. So one day, April 18th, I woke up and got strict again and lost 5 more pounds in that first week. I started writing everything that I ate  down and learned to say no again to the things that weren’t goo for me. Then today, ten days after picking it back up full force, I decided to take a picture like I did when I first started. When I looked at the picture on my phone I felt like a cow. “I should be 170 pounds by now!!!” I thought, and started to feel the discouragement set in again. Then, I thought, “Maybe I should just compare it to an older picture anyway, just cause.”. I can’t tell you how much I am in shock over this before and after. I am so proud of this and the fact that I have made so much progress, even through hardships and falling off the wagon a couple times. I thought I ought to share this with everybody because I honestly haven’t had too many pictures of my body up since my computer broke. Well, here you go. 85 pounds down and I feel on top of the world. :)

Ugh, story of my life!
