Anonymous asked: My deepest congrats on being able to fit into your dream dress! That's an awesome incentive and an awesome achieved goal! I was wondering how you lost the weight? I'm currently trying to do the same, and I just can't seem to make progress. Would you mind giving some tips if possible? Thank you in advance and I hope you have a lovely day! <3
thank you so very much! (: it was a very wonderful, satisfying feeling. i originally bought the dress back in October. got it home, tried it on in excitement.. only to be unable to zip it up.
i would absolutely love to give you tips! :) basically, my biggest changes from October to now have been consistently eating better. i struggle with depression and my go-to comfort is junk food. it’s a difficult cycle to break. for me, feeling awful leads to eating awful, to which i gain weight, and then feel awful about myself, making my depression that much worse. i don’t know if you struggle with depression as i do, but just know that i know it’s so very difficult to pull yourself out of a difficult cycle, or changing your habits. but i know you can do it, and continue to make progress. it’s always so discouraging if you’ve hit a plateau or can’t seem to get the results you’d like to see.
we had a long winter here in Massachusetts, and my favorite exercise is running outside. unfortunately i used weather as an excuse to not exercise as much as i should have, but now with spring finally here, i feel much more energized and the ice has melted away! my best method for loosing weight (for me) has been running a few miles every day, crunches (~100 or so a day), only drinking water or green tea (and having a cheat day here and there), and eating as healthy as possible (lots of fruits, veggies, fish). when i did this just about every day for a summer, i was down to 115!! for reference, my highest weight was around 150 this winter. 115 was the healthiest weight i have ever been (i’ve been lower before due to sickness).
i hope this helps — sorry that it’s long winded and kinda all over the place. i believe in you, and i hope you reach the goals you want to reach!! :) <3
