1 year EM2WL progress with pics
It will be 1 year in 4 days that I started my EM2WL (Eat More to Weigh Less) weight loss journey. I was 191 pounds (5'1) I am now 155 lbs so I still have about 25 or so pounds to go but I will get there and I wont be starving myself to get there. Even though a year ago I thought I would be further down on the scale than I am now I am amazed at the results I have had and my body has changed in so many ways. I was in a size 18 jeans now I am wearing 12's and they are not tight. Ive gone from a 44 DD bra to a 34 DD. I feel amazing, I have some good self esteem. I have learned enormous amounts about food and nutrition and how to eat to fuel my body instead of the old tried and true starve yourself methods everyone has been tricked into believing by the diet products industry. I have gotten here by eating between 1800 -2000 calories everyday. I have a bad knee injury so I don't get alot of exercise aside from my daily routine. I cant lift weights (even though I want to more than anything ) Due to a bladder sling surgery I had a few years back. But I have still been able to make amazing progress just eating good food and not dropping my calories below my BMR. I have eaten like crazy at holidays and special occasions and I don't worry about those things anymore. EM2WL saved me. I couldn't imagine being happier than I am today. Thank you to all my friends who have supported me along the way! And thank you most of all to Kiki & Lucia !

LOVE this Tonya!!! lovestruck

You have done so well, even despite of your limitations! I'm so proud of you big grin

I just think of how many people would have quit by now, because of not seeing "quick enough" results, only to end back at square one. But because of your patience, you are still seeing progress! It's a lifestyle, baby. You are working it! applause

I hope you'll consider what Lucia mentioned. There are so many that would be inspired by your progress!!
