This is me at my highest weight: 80kg in 05/2017, since then I’ve lost about 7kg on my own and now I’ve gotten some support to try to lose some more of this weight. I’ll try to find a more recent picture soon. When I saw this picture I was shocked. I knew I was overweight, but this was bigger than I ever was. But like everyone knows. Losing weight is hard. And I’ve been struggling a lot. A lot of yo-yo and failing. #beforeweightloss#weightlossjourney#shocked#motivation
