You can’t put your lowest weight on your resume (CV). It’s kind of silly, but it’s so true! Your lowest adult weight is not an achievement and frankly no one other than you cares about it. That number speaks nothing to your knowledge, skills, or abilities. It says nothing about what kind of person you are, what interests you, and where you see yourself in the future. Remember this when you start thinking about how your weight wasn’t “that low” or when you’re still holding out hope that you’ll one day reach that goal number and THEN you can finally recover. Just like that job you had in high school, bump your lowest weight from your symbolic resume and replace it with all the wonderful things you’ve done since then.
