One year ago today I hit my “goal weight” and in the one year of maintaining my weightloss I’ve continued to make progress both mentally and physically.
Left: running 4-6x a week, minimal weight training (really just weight machines), still counting calories, eating 1700-1800 calories a day
Right: lifting 5-6x a week, cardio on the elliptical when the mood strikes, no longer counting calories but easily eating 2000+ a day
I’m 130 in both pictures, but my weight hasn’t been completely static, it fluctuates daily (like everyones does), and the couple of times I weighed myself during the winter I was about 135. Now I know it’s not a huge physical difference, I didn’t do any sort of proper bulk/cut, which I may do this year, but the freedom and peace of mind that has come with no longer tracking and counting everything I eat is more progress than I could have ever hoped for.
Also let this be proof that lifting weights will not make you bulky ladies!
Yes. If you think it is an eating disorder type of things and not just feeling sick after some bad food, you need to tell someone. As long as your dad is someone you think will be understanding and get her the help she needs then your dad should know. If not, talk to someone like a school counselor or another adult who can talk to her. Eating disorders develop so quickly, don’t wait to get her help. She will thank you in the future.
Good luck xox
YES.YES.YES. People need to realise this
This belongs more on Facebook than it does on tumblr.
i think you’re missing out on some of tumblr then… but it should be on facebook too, it should be on every social media site!
