I did it! I REALLY did it! My first, long-haul goal has been reached. It's been 7 month and 3 days for me to lose 45 kgs, or 100 US lbs.
I set out to do this in a year, and I am already done. Wow. Honestly, I was not sure I would be able to do it when I started, but having such great tools from Fatsecret, using the website and the phone app really helped me keep track of things, and of course the unending support of my beautiful with helped me immensely. I could not have done this without her. My friends have been SO supportive also, hearing me yacking on and on about weigh loss for what must have seemed forever. Thanks for all the "likes" on Facebook and all the positive comments, both online and in "real life".
Now, I am off to phase two: Lose another 10 kgs, to get under 100 kgs. I think that's where I comfortably see myself, but I won't know until I'm there. We'll see.
Today, I will hang with my brother, we're doing campfire and hot dogs.
I included a couple of before and after photos in this post.
The first picture is taken one year ago, at my brother's house, ALSO doing hotdogs.
The "after" picture is taken this morning.
Indeed, life is good.

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.
