The lighting really is the best in the bathroom, sorry. Also, this is my "I've been in this bathroom too damn long" face hahaha. I hate taking selfies. Anyhow, I have an update of sorts... Last year, I weighed 216 pounds when starting T. I was floored when I got my blood work results back and saw that I wasn't even close to diabetic. I wish I could say that inspired me to take better care of myself. But instead, I took that information and did very bad things. I pretty much had given myself permission to just eat whatever crap whenever I wanted. For a myriad of reasons (wanting to get in better shape for whenever top surgery happens, always feeling sluggish, plus a cute guy [I know]), I decided to start making some changes. Years back, I weighed close to 270. I was scared of getting there again.
I started slowly, checking the sugar content of nearly everything I ate. I ditched soda and fruit juice, favoring water, black coffee (which I love), and unsweetened tea (which I never liked but now having the sweetened version is weird). I thought since that went well, I would try the myfitnesspal app. It just went from there. Small, consistent changes is key for me. Today, I weigh 195 pounds. For the first time in over 10 years, I am under 200 pounds. Just under, but hey I'll take it. Just gotta keep going now.
