I’ve been on this particular journey to recoverying from compulsive overeating since March of this year. I’ve made significant changes in my eating lifestyle and have cut out foods that are not good for me and that cause a reaction of wanting more (and more and more and more…). I am still getting my energy back after carrying around an extra 150+ lbs from my "normal" weight for my height and what I used to weigh in my adult life (until my 30’s).
Although I still have along way to go emotionally and physically to be where I hope to be–when I get there, hopefully I’ll know ;o)–I wanted to share my journey so far with pictures of what I looked like when I started and what I look like now at 55 lbs down.
I know that it’s not a HUGE difference, but this is the least I’ve weighed since my father passed away over 8 years ago! And it’s easier and easier to move this body around in the world and fit into spaces that are meant for "normal" people.
