If you only used one save state slot throughout the entirety of your playthrough and you didn’t save in-game at all, then your progress is gone.

Save states are meant to be used within single gaming sessions only, as they are a lot more unstable and prone to data loss than normal in-game save files. Therefore, you should rely on in-game save files to save your progress.
