Photos of progress
I wish I would choose another underwear for this first progress pic bc, this is literally my skin tone. But hello I lose 30 pounds.
I am shocked by this progress and excitement, and I can’t wait to see where I am in another 3 months! Honestly, it was so easy to lose pounds.
(Re) Educating yourself about the realities of obesity, metabolism and cardiovascular diseases, as well as lifestyle based on the whole food plant; NAFLD diagnosis and sleep apnea with early signs of insulin resistance; recognizing that my relationship with fast food was exciting and incredibly unhealthy; critically overestimating the “feminist” discourse around fat, health and food … all this did it without problems, that it was time to make changes and lose weight.
I have one life to live on this timeline, and it was an incredible struggle, but not necessarily.
Mentally, I will fight with my mental illness for life.
But physically? I am lucky that I have a gift CHOICE.
It is my choice to change the way I eat and move, to change my risk factors for disease, to reverse disease. I already have NAFLD and sleep apnea. The conditions associated with my weight may have caused me extreme, disgust from distress and discomfort … but I have the opportunity to change my habits and become healthy again.
If there is ANYTHING that can be considered a privilege of ability, it is. I would be out of my mind, not to do something that will help me and everyone around me, who should support me while I struggle with preventable diseases, just because I want immediate satisfaction of certain products. No thanks. It is not for me to live. This is not life. It is enslaved in food, fleeting pleasure and avoidance of fear and discomfort. No more.
Life is hard, but no one promised me that it would be easy.
