For clarity, I’ve never been obese and whilst I definitely started down this road with some weight loss in mind, it was largely just to be healthier in general.
I became a rather sad couch potato over the last 2-3 years. When I started out 2 months or so ago, I was undoubtedly in the worst shape of my life; far heavier than I’ve ever been, flabby, shapeless, tired, stressed… the list goes on. I was getting winded just getting dressed or taking a shower and as much as that shocked me, it also fed into the old loop of self loathing and it took a bit for me to finally say not only “I need to change”, but “I can change”.
To date, I’ve lost around 4.5 inches off my waistline. I don’t weigh still, so can’t comment on that side of things!
But the biggest change I’ve noticed is in my actual body shape. My muscle definition now is just… wow. I didn’t know this was possible for me xD Even when I was fitter than in my couch potato stage and was working out at least some, active every day, I didn’t look like this. I have curves! Healthy, firm, curves
I might even get my legs out in public one of these days
And yes, there’s the improved mood and energy levels. There’s a distinct lack of multiple chins, and I’m pretty sure I look younger already… certainly feel it.
The only thing that won’t eff off is the mahoosive suitcases under my eyes, which is a bit odd considering how well rested I feel but eh, win some lose some I guess!
All in all, a very happy bunny
