(Aside: I always spelled that word wrong in first grade and got kept in from recess to learn it correctly. To this day I always feel like I'm spelling it wrong!)
Lately I have been bringing tupperware with me everywhere, eating approximately a ton of vegetables, weighing myself on the regular and taking plenty of progress photos.
I haven't been really loud about it, but I have lost over 20 pounds in the past couple of months.
Well, I finally started addressing my hypothyroidism appropriately.
I noticed that despite 100% adherence to a pretty decent deficit (-2500 calories per week), I lost about 3 pounds from January 1st to April. I had some lab work done, got a new prescription and hey, look, now my body is behaving itself. (If anyone has any personal questions about this, please contact me! SquatLikeALady@gmail.com!)
Ever since I started lifting over two years ago, I have wanted to do two things:
Get really, really strong and compete in a powerlifting meet, and compete in a figure show.
I haven't talked much about the second goal because I thought with my lame-ass metabolism courtesy of my stupid eating disorder (seriously kids, don't try that crud at home), I would never be able to get down to 15% bodyfat.
I think I can do it.
(My tummy holds all my fat! Seriously - I've lost more fat from my arms than I have from my stomach! :P It's coming off though. I know it is.)
So here I am. 14 weeks and 5 days out. And then participating in a powerlifting meet a month later.
