5 months

I am still amazed at how my body and mind has changed in 5 months. I feel so different, physically and mentally. I am so glad that I started this journey 5 months ago! I actually feel like I CAN beat this weight problem I have. Before when I started diets, I was not all the way in it like I should have been. I was doing it for the purpose of a physical change. When I began this journey, my main focus was to better my health. The scariest thing I was facing 5 months ago was the possibility of Type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, and infertility due to PCOS. I know that I am not out of the woods yet but I feel like I am taking control of my health and getting as far away as possible from these awful diseases. I know that I will always suffer from PCOS since there is no cure for it but my hope is that I can lessen the side effects and fight infertility. Who knows what will come about from my weightloss journey but my hope is that there will be a LOT of positives. :)

I am very proud to say that I did hit my 50 pounds lost by my 25th birthday last Monday. I have been fighting nasty allergies the last few weeks and haven't been able to go to the gym in almost 3 weeks! I was planning to start going again this weekend and then I had a strange allergic reaction to something and was covered in hives. I am not sure what my allergic reaction was from but I did a lot of reading and I honestly think it might be coming from stress. Since I have been using exercise as my stress relief, I haven't had any relief in 3 weeks. I think that the hives may have come from pent up stress. Who knows but that is my theory. :)

I am looking forward to my 6 month mark next month! It honestly feels like yesterday that I started my weightloss journey but then again it feels like I have been doing it forever. Thank you for joining me on my journey!
