The Amazing Adventures of Diet Girl

I recently came across this blog The Amazing Adventures of Diet Girl and it has inspired me to be more open and honest about my weight loss struggles and how far I have actually come in this weight loss challenge.

This girl reminded me of me as I was reading her story. I could relate to so much about what she says. She has lost a total of 79.6 kilos (175.5 pounds) Her before and after pictures are amazing.

So this is what I am going to do. I am not going to hide behind my weight watchers meetings and only tell them what is bothering me or what is holding me back I am going to tell every one of you as well. Maybe if I write it all down and do my weekly weigh ins on here then this will also help me to lose weight.

Right now I only share my weight loss results with weight watchers and YDU but now I'm going to share them on my blog as well. That means the losses and the gains.

That's very brave!

I'm impressed.

You don't look that big for 327 pounds. I mean not that I know much about weight. I guess if I had to guess your weight, I'd probably say 200.

I guess I have no idea about weight and body size.

I suppose I just imagined 300 pounds being HUGE. And you don't look huge to me.

I'm sure it also depends on height. I'd be HUGE at 327 pounds.

You're da bomb and I am so glad I get to hang out with you. You're real, you're the shit.

And you're one brave girl in a foreign land.

I agree, very brave! DAMN you do not look as big as your weight would indicate you to be. I'll be honest, when I found your blog I thought YAY someone who can maybe relate! When saw how much weight you had to lose I was surprised because it was more than I would need to lose (but not by much, believe me).

Then saw your pics and thought, huh? She wants to lose all that weight, does she want to weigh 70 lbs or something???

If I had to guess how much you weighed in your before photo I would have said maybe about 240 lbs or something.

Are you tremendously tall or something? I'm 5'3 so I have a LOT of weight packed onto a really small frame. Sometimes I swear I feel as wide as I am high.

Oh and btw, I'm so jealous that you can have that much weight to lose and still have a neck. On those days I just mentioned, I also feel like my cheeks go straight down to my shoulders. ugh!
