Today, I gained another 4 pounds since the last time I weighed myself and I am "officially" in the category of overweight in terms of BMI calculation. Guess what? I don't care. LOL
Here is a photo of me back in 2008 when I weighed somewhere around 150 lbs. You can also see the Psoriasis I had on my face and neck. I wore long sleeve shirts and pants everywhere I went even if it was scorching hot outside. I don't really have a lot of photos because I was so self conscious about my skin I would delete and rip up any that I found.
In 2010, I went vegan. I was told to eat around ~1200 calories and exercise to lose weight. So, I started doing that. In 2013 I was at my lowest weight and while sure I look a lot healthier there I wasn't eating enough. I would literally eat so little and I thought it was normal. The dark circles around my eyes would never go away. I had no muscle definition what so ever. None... lol. This was just before going 80-10-10 and then RT4.
The last photo I took yesterday... I'm almost 150 lbs again. And this "officially" means my BMI is overweight. I seriously think all that was muscle in my legs. The past few weeks I've noticed more shape to my legs. I have a lot of muscles now or definition of them.
I think it's so crazy that I look this different around the same weight. I know I have fat that could go but honestly, I don't even care. I think I look better now.
Anyways, just wanted to share. Don't be afraid of your weight! It's a number!
