LilySlim - Weight loss

This Might Be It

I may be done here.

I've been the same weight within five pounds or so for seventeen months. I run anywhere from 171 to 185, depending on if I let carbs get the best of me, averaging around 178 most days. At 5'10" and with dense bones, it's a good weight for me. I wear a size 14.Things  have changed in so many ways:

  • Getting divorced. It will be final January 27, 2017, provided there are no hitches.
  • I went back to college, am working on an MA in English / Creative Writing. Had a 4.0 last semester.
  • I have my own apartment (yay!)
  • I have friends. A lot of friends.
  • I have worked part time, both editing and doing grocery store food sampling gigs
  • I'm dating (Yeah, I know!)
  • I workout nearly every day. I'm a walking fool--in the city or on the treadmill at the university gym. I love it. It helps a lot with stress and anger. The feeling I get when I walk out of there sweaty and sore is so awesome.
  • I'm healthy. Healthy!
Here's a couple of recent pictures:




I'm happy. This is the happiest time of my life in....years. Maybe...EVER. I am totally, authentically, 100% me, and living my life the way I want to live it, for once.

Life is good.

I don't know if I'll be back here. In the meantime, take what you need and leave the rest.

Wishing you only good things.

  2. You look really good, glad to see the update. Keep up with the gym; wish I had never stopped. Starting again is tres daunting even if I had time/energy. Hell, I barely have the energy to blog again.
    All the best!

    1. Hey MB,

      I found you in my spam folder. :-) How the hell are you? What is going on with you? How is your baby? Shoot me an email; I hope you're well.

      Thanks for the kind words. I look in the mirror and think...who the heck is that? LOL

      Cheers,

      Julie
