The last 45, which is also known as #thelast45, is my Instagram journey. I will be putting myself out there and being accountable for losing my last 45 pounds on this 212 lb. weight loss journey.
I decided that I needed to be more accountable in this time frame because it would not only help me, but it would help others. I am ready to lose this weight and get on to the maintenance phase of the process.
I realize that I will not be thin by the BMI charts. My goal weight is 175. For me, that’s healthy. I don’t care with the BMI charts say. I don’t believe in them and I don’t put any stock in them. I believe people should pick a weight that feels healthy to them.
I’ve already gained so much by losing this weight. I know I have more to do, but I’m excited to share it with you on Instagram. Follow me @thebariatricbadass. I will post my weigh-ins, my exercise and some of the foods I eat.
I am also looking for support and encouragement from you. This will not be easy, but nothing worthwhile ever is, right?
Feel free to share your goals with me and tell me what you want to achieve. You can do it on Instagram or on my Facebook page. I’m active in both locations and look forward to the interaction with you. I’d love your support and encouragement. It will help push me into achieving what I know is possible.
No person is an island, I’m paraphrasing one of my favorite quotes. In the age of social media, we can share these kinds of journeys with others. I hope my journey inspires you to start your own. I’m happy to help you with yours in any way possible even if it’s only as an inspiration.
Join me for the last 45 and watch me be accountable. I’m ready! Are you?
