I posted this in my journal today and decided to share it with the rest of the FS community that needs a good chuckle.. Smile

My FS journey, as told by dogs:


Before I started counting my calories with FS, I just ate mindlessly, and for awhile, it didn't impact me.. People would bring goodies into work and I would be like:





And I would also just eat all the time when I was bored:





then all of a sudden I realized that all the new pants I was buying were 2 sizes bigger than ones that I had been wearing most of my adult life....





When I first realized I needed to drop some poundage and get rid of the love handles that were plaguing my wardrobe choices, I was pretty stunned... You mean I can't have all the treats at work?!??





After I got over the sadness of missing out on gorging myself on cupcakes and bars and boozing it up all weekend long, and I thought I could only eat salads, I got a little crabby...





But then I realized, hey!! I can exercise too and that will give me a caloric deficit!!





Then Ryan came along and warned me about what could happen while I'm running....





But I just pushed past that fear and tracked my calories and exercised and then I just watched the scale drop!! And I was like, Oh yeah.. that's right... work it... oh yeah...




But what I also realized is that maintenance is TOUGH. And when I try to just wing it on my own, sometimes this happens:





So I love having my buddies here to keep me in check and tell me to step away from the cheetos and M&M's.. Smile





Thanks buddies!!! Smile

I went from morbidly obese to being the owner of TABDIG - a weight loss coaching service that helps people worldwide losing weight. It's been an amazing journey. From October 4th 2010 to April 3rd 2012 I lost half my body weight - 80 kilos/170 lbs. Since then, I have had two cosmetic surgeries to remove excess skin. I have now quadrupled my strength, gained several kilos in muscle mass, and today I focus on building muscle, optimizing my diet, living healthy and helping people to reach the very same goals. I am stronger, healthier, thinner, happier! If you feel that you need help losing weight, don't hesitate to send me an inbox message.
