My weight-loss journey...
When I started my weight loss journey I had so many obstacles’ to overcome. I have two daughters who really needed a mother who could keep up with them. I weighed in at 300 pounds, and I thought the scales were lying. I swayed side-to-side on the scales hoping it had to be wrong; they weren’t. I have been over weight most of my life and this journey I have taken many times before, but for me this is the last time I will walk this path. This path is not an easy path for anyone who is overweight, or trying to lose weight. You hear the snickers when you sit down at a restaurant to eat, you hear the people saying ummm, she should not be eating that, but you think who are they to judge, they do not know you, you will never see them again, and life goes on for you. I was tired of being that person; I was tired of being made fun of. My daughter wanted to go to the water park for her birthday last year, I couldn’t go. I could not go into a water park in a swimsuit, was she crazy? I have battled this weight loss dieting roller coaster of HELL for 13months and counting now, and the result is worth it for me. This year on June 17th I will go to the water park for the first time in my life… Yes ladies, I have never gone to a water park out of fear of what others may think. I ask, is this how I want to live my life? No… I will live my life from now on, and not miss out on things. The journey has brought me to a weight loss of 135 pounds down now, and I have 40 pounds left in this journey to go. I exercise everyday, which includes walking, weightlifting and stepping. I love working out, and bought my first workout outfit ever last month. I am a medium now, I can’t believe it, I have not seen a medium since, OH good God, maybe elementary school lol. If there is any advice I can give to another, its keep trying, find your path, find your way, don’t do it because of looks, and do it for your health that is how my journey began. I know it’s a rough journey, I have cried, I have sweat, and I will continue to do this for the rest of my life, but my kids have a mom that can keep up with them now. They are proud of me, and that is the best feeling in the world.
This was me when I started and what I look like today, still going.
My weight loss journey started with the Suzanne Summers diet.
