My name is Alexa, 19 years young and reside in Dallas, TX. So far I've lost 20 lbs since April 20th. I don't have an exact goal weight I just want to be at a healthy weight that I find suitable for my height (5'4.) For years I've struggled with an Eating Disorder that ruined me mentally and physically. It's really hard to talk about it without me getting emotional so posting about it here is a huge deal. I am not dieting for a certain amount of time to just lose weight and then go back to old eating habits. This is a change for a healthy lifestyle for life! And of course weight loss as well. I am ashamed to post how much I actually weigh but once I get to an ideal weight I will tell you guys all the stats + before and after pics ;)
~So tell me your story and weight loss goals if you'd like! I am here for support and advice :) We can all do this together!
"If you weigh yourself every day, you can easily get discouraged during a plateau. But plateaus are IMPORTANT consolidation periods. Even though it may not be showing, a lot of things are going on biochemically inside you that are getting ready for your next big breakthrough. Weighing yourself every day keeps the focus on how quickly you are losing weight. Take the focus off how quickly you are losing weight and focus instead on how effectively you are transforming your body permanently."
