Beginning of the Journey

The Reddit user, a 24 year old female, started her weight loss journey at a weight of 173.9 lbs. After two months of consistent effort, she successfully lost 16.2 lbs and weighed in at 157.7 lbs.

The Struggle

While the user was able to keep motivated during the first month of her journey, the second month was a bit tougher. She felt as though her body wasn't changing, even though her weight was decreasing. She pressed on, however, and remained committed to her goals.

The Methods

The user did not disclose exactly how she lost the weight, but mentioned that she focused on making small, sustainable changes to her lifestyle. She emphasized the importance of finding what works for you as an individual, and not trying to follow a one-size-fits-all approach to weight loss.

The Importance of Perseverance

The Reddit user's journey serves as a reminder that weight loss is not always a linear process. Some weeks, the scale may not move at all, while other weeks may see significant progress. It is important to remember that slow progress is still progress, and to keep pushing through even during the tough times.

The Takeaway

The Reddit user's weight loss journey is both inspiring and relatable. Her emphasis on finding sustainable methods and persevering through slow progress can serve as motivation for anyone on their own weight loss journey. Remember to focus on what works for you and to keep pushing forward, even when it feels tough!
