This might be my first post, but I feel I simply must contribute since this thread was my bedtime reading/motivation for a few weeks. Thank you SO MUCH to all who posted. Seeing progress from the same people throughout the years, especially, reinforces that this is a journey, so I don't need to sweat the daily ups & downs as long as I keep on the journey.
I did a Whole30 with my husband from Dec 27 to Jan 26 & lost 12 lbs. In the 2 months since, I lost 10 more. I'm about 75/25, with minimal exercise recently added in (but definitely more than I used to do): squats, planks, and a bit more walking. Today marks 3 months, so I took pictures wearing the same "goal" dress as on Day 1.
Not a big difference, but I did buy a belt hole maker and have punched in 3 new holes since I started!
