14 years ago, I was in a medical facility preparing for a routine foot surgery. I was weighed just before heading to the operating room and the scale read 199.9. I was 12 years old. I had no idea what that meant at that age, I just knew I was different from my friends. I never saw a number that low again.
Until this morning. I weighed in at 198.8. It’s been a long 14 years. But after 10 months of extremely hard work, both physical and mental, I’ve not only reached that, I’ve beat it.
Hello, onederland. I’ve been waiting a very, very long time to see you again.

This is how my body has changed in 8 months
On the left in 2011, I wore a size xxl shirt and size 16 pants. Fast forward to 2013 and I currently wear a size medium shirt with size 10 pants. I am so much happier and getting healthy certainly played a huge part in that. I am nowhere near where I want to be yet, but I am damn proud of how far I have come sofar! Currently 188 & 5’5.
I know it’s not much and I still have a long way to go - BUT this is two months of an hour of cardio 4-5x’s a week and clean(er) eating. I’m 5’4”.
I now and forever more declare this blog a weight free zone. There will be no more weigh ins. No more scales.
Photos are all you need.
Who CARES if the scales have hardly moved in four months? What does that even MEAN? Nothing!
LOOK AT THE DIFFERENCE. YELLING AT MYSELF WITH CAPITALS. I NEED TO ACTUALLY SEE HOW FAR I’VE COME. JUST LOOK AT IT.
I’m going to focus a shit tonne more on celebrating what I have already done. I’m going to make myself SEE it. More importantly I will BELIEVE it. I struggle with that at the moment. I can’t see the changes in myself. I will work on this. It’s not vain to celebrate your success. If you don’t, who will? The number on the scale does not help me see changes in myself at all. A number on the scale is not my destination. A number on the scale tells me only my relationship with gravity, nothing more, nothing less.
My destination is happy, hot, healthy, badass mothereffing powerlifter.
