Update On My Weight-Loss | No comments:

Hey guys! So I haven't blogged about fitness in a while so I thought I'd give you guys an update on my weight-loss. It's been a couple months since I've posted my last weight-loss post which you can still read here. I've still been going strong and working out frequently along with eating healthy and I've lost another 13 pounds making it 23 pounds in total that I've lost!

I typically don't look at the scale often and since I lift weights and muscle weighs more than fat, I try to only weigh myself once or twice a month. The quickest way I can tell if I lost weight is when I notice that my clothes start looking a little looser or I'm down another belt size. This past week, I was trying on my summer clothes from last year and I noticed that this skirt that I wore to DC was so loose on me! I was shocked! It's so strange how day to day you think you look the same and then you try on something old and you realize how much weight you've really lost! 

I still can't believe that I even have the determination to keep going with this, I never would've thought I would be able to stick to a healthy routine for a year now. I just feel so proud of myself! I actually like myself now and not just cause I lost weight but because I know I've worked hard to become who I am. Fitness teaches you a lot of things but most of all it teaches you to respect your body. I know that I'm not perfect and certainly don't look perfect, but I can honestly look in the mirror and say that I'm content with the way I look. I hope one day we can all get to that point in our lives where we can say that to ourselves. That's what really made this fitness journey worth it: to watch myself improve into a better version of me both mentally and physically.

Until next time lovelies,

-Ruya
