Starting at 279 Pounds, Abby Dropped 55 Pounds – Proof That Weight Watchers Works! | Holistic Rehab

It was a photo that did it for Abby. Seeing the picture on the left from her best friend's wedding, she says, "All I could think about was my arm!! I am so damn critical of myself. Ugh. That night was so much fun, but I couldn't enjoy it all because my weight held me back." Shopping for that dress, she felt self-conscious anyway, but then not liking how she looked in it was part of the motivation that Abby needed to start taking better care of herself and to begin her weight-loss journey.

With a starting weight of 279.6 pounds in December of 2016, with the help of Weight Watchers, Abby is now 224 pounds - down 55.6 pounds total! She says, "Flash forward to today, I totally see a difference in my arm! And my waist for sure. . . Today, I'm weighing in at 224 and couldn't be happier with myself ❤️." Her goal weight is 141 pounds and aside from following Weight Watchers, she also feels grateful for the support and encouragement from other inspiring Instagram accounts - she says "I ain't stopping now."

Aside from the physical changes, Abby also feels better emotionally, saying, "When I started this journey, I was still stuck in 'I hate my body' mode. I honestly didn't ever think I would get over it. I am not there yet, but I love myself a little more each day."

Learning to be comfortable in your skin takes time, especially when you have a history of negative body image. Abby says, "I am slowly learning that I need to fix my mind just as much as I need to lose weight." Start giving yourself compliments, start celebrating your successes, no matter how small, and start showing yourself the love you so freely give to others.

2014 ?? 2017 ✌? • • Inspired by @daisyisathome to make a new side by side! The left is the VERY first 'before' picture I have ever taken. I had just split up with my ex and didn't have the greatest mindset on life. I decided to make a change and start losing weight. I lost about 50-60lbs and completely changed my life. Fast forward, I met my fiancé, fell in love and slowly but surely, gained back all the weight I lost plus about 15lbs. Now, I am down 53lbs and couldn't be happier with myself. This journey has taught me so many things. I refuse to let food control my life. Thanks to a few amazing motivational IG ladies, @doctorofacertainsize @morewineplease_ww @losingtheweight_gainingmylife @aubreystrawb_rny and many more, I have been able to stay on track and keep going throughout all of the slip ups I have made. Following their journeys and seeing that everyone is human and makes mistakes has been so beneficial to my weight loss. Thank you to everyone for so much support and love. I ain't stopping now!! ❤️ • • #ww #weightwatchers #weightwatchersworks #weightwatchersjourney #weightwatchersfooddiary #weightwatcherscommunity #weightwatcherstherightchoice #smartpoints #smartpointsfam #smartpointsww #smartpointsplan #smartpointssystem #weightloss #weightlossjourney #weightlossdiary #weightlossjournal #health #healthy #healthychoices #healthylifestyle #workout #workoutdaily #workoutlife #workoutflow #fooddiary #igothis #motivation #happiness #chunkybutfunky
