How I Lost Over 125 Pounds Forever~Sky Taylor

August - The Year of the Final Diet
August 17th - my birthday. And what a gift that I'd given myself. At 138 pounds, I'd ditched about 85 pounds in about 8 months.
That equals about eight and a half pounds per month of true body fat that I lost.
2 Pounds Per Week, About Average Amount for Weight Loss
But even amid all my starvation, I had only managed losing a little over 2 pounds per week, on average.
This goes to show that it's best to lose weight using non-starvation methods. Knowing what I know now, I would have determined the amount of daily calories that my healthy recommended weight required.

And then down, down, down, down - blam - 9 pounds almost all at once! The weight scales now read 129 pounds and I was smiling from ear to ear.
And that little black swimsuit was fitting rather nicely now.

Better yet - I had knees! I had a collar bone! I had a neck! I even had smaller breasts!
And my meals had gotten a bit healthier, as I'd decided I'd made my body pay long enough.
I remember my dear mother popping in one Saturday afternoon and how impressed she was with my rosemary and lemon pepper salmon steak. Love her I do - but no one was getting this delectable dish, not even my Mommy.
And now, we move forward to the final page of my weight loss success story. Don't you just love a happy ending? Continue
