I’ve had this blog post ready to go for about a week now. Naturally, I didn’t want to publish until the title became factual, but now I can unequivocally state, I have lost 20 pounds since the beginning of the year.
That might not seem like a huge feat, but when you’re insulin resistant, it can be so incredibly hard to lose weight. Even with diet and exercise, it’s an uphill battle. One “cheat” day can set me back a couple of pounds, which is incredibly unfortunate because sometimes all I want to do is get weird with some buffalo wings. Not drinking has definitely helped with an increase in weight loss over the last three weeks, and I suppose the gym regularity hasn’t hurt either.
The bottom line is, I feel great. And I’m back to my wedding weight!
If you need me tonight, I’ll most likely be celebrating my accomplishment with an ice-cold non-alcoholic beverage while relaxing in my wedding dress. Because I can.
