<-- This is how many remember me. From what people tell me now, I look like a whole different person.
I have been looking through old pictures lately. I don't even recognize myself in some of them! In some ways I really do feel like a different person. I have changed so much in the past year it is unreal! I never thought I would ever get to this point, let alone maintain my weight after being 100 pounds down. Granted I did have my ups and downs but I have always gotten myself back on track. As this year is coming to an end I look back and smile. We always focus on our failures more than we do our accomplishments (at least I do) and I need to remember to not be so hard on myself. A negative attitude has never gotten anyone anywhere. From what I have accomplished; I feel healthier, happier & a better person because of it. I also feel more womanly & like I have an identity. When I was 338 pounds I had no idea who I was, or what I wanted in life. Losing my weight has completely changed things for the better. I will NEVER regret the decision that I made to start this process because it has been the best gift I could have ever given myself. Not to mention I probably gained 10 years of my life back! In situations like mine, you can reverse the clock and ultimately change your future.
I am still working to get to my ultimate goal weight. Now that I have gotten myself back on track with things, I am ready! I had went through a little slump but now I am back on the move and have put myself back into the mindset that I need to be in. I shed off what I had gained so it should be nothing but results from here on out!
I am finally noticing major hair growth! I started applying coconut oil about a month ago to the ends of my hair when I'm in the shower. I am so happy because I am trying to grow my hair out for my wedding this upcoming June!
My name is Marilyn and I am 27 years old. I have been overweight for most of my life and on May 1st, 2012 I weighed in at 338 pounds. This blog is about my weight-loss journey.
