First big goal almost reached :)
« on: September 06, 2013, 08:56:12 AM »
When I started Paleo a few shorts months ago (Mid-March 2013) I had bought 2 dresses at a close off sale 5$ each for my cousin's wedding. Both of them were really too small one event couldnít zip off to the top on the back! They were my incentive to getting healthier and I have been trying them on throughout my journey consistently seeing my body fitting into these :) What a great feeling when I was able to zip off the smaller one!!!

I did set a specific number of pounds that I wanted to shed before the wedding (I had chosen the wedding date because I leave far from my family and I wanted to surprise them by not telling anything about my new health regimen) the magical number I had in mind was 50 pounds. I was only 4 pounds away on the wedding day.

I must say I was very proud of myself as I was really close to the magical number but also because the smaller dress was now too big and I had to do some alterations on the top part so it could fit properly :) I went from 219 to 173 pounds by eating Paleo, doing the WII active2, 3 times a week in addition a few weeks ago I started jogging also 3 times a week.

Needless to say that the surprise for my family was big and caused a chain reaction. We had all rented rooms at the same hotel, when I came in the hallway in our reserved section my godmother looked at me and said, no way it can't be you, what have you done? Then I saw he doors opening and people coming out of their rooms having the same reaction, it took me forever to actually get to my room and get ready for the wedding. What a boost!!!

On the other side my health in general has improved so much, my thyroid meds have been lowered, my mind is clear, my depression symptoms are long gone and so is my recurrent yeast infection... YAYYYY!!!

Now, I need to set a new goal and a new time frame... I want to challenge myself and then again want to be realistic as I don't want to set myself for failure... Next step is to have my BF% taken so I can base my next goal on this instead of a number on the scale...

Iíll post the new goal to keep myself accountable ;)

Thanks for reading!
