This is my weight loss progression so far from behind! In January 2013 I weighed 75kg (~165lbs) and dropped down to about 60kg (~132lbs) by September 2013 just by watching what I ate and walking more and working more. Fast foward to June 2014 and I’m now about 62kg (~136lbs).
I’ve had issues with my weight since I was about ten years old. Since then I’ve been through a rollercoaster of starving, binging, purging, diet pills, just not caring and eating crap, eating well and exercising, then overexercising, only to repeat the cycle over and over. Eight years later the unhealthy habits never got me anything except a very negative body image that fed into my depression and social anxiety which I struggled with for a long time. By the end of high school in 2012 I decided to start respecting my body by kicking all those nasty habits and adopting a vegan lifestyle.
I’m almost 19 now and my mindset has completely changed. I’m a much more confident and positive person and I’ve felt my desire to be skinny change into my desire to be healthy and strong. I always felt my best in those brief periods when I would do what’s best for my body by eating well and exercising without taking it to the extreme.
So now it’s finally time to get my ass into shape and lose those last 10kg or so and get some muscle! I decided making a tumblr would help for the community and motivation. I’m new so if you wanna check out my blog and motivate each other then hit me up! :)
