I needed to update my page really bad. I'll try to keep this short and sweet...My name is Nefertete, but I go by Nefe for short and I'm 21 years old and a sophomore in college. First things first I have been with sparkpeople for about 3 years now, even though I joined in 07.. I wasnt really an active member. I'll admit I never really knew what it was about back then. Until one day I saw this youtube video of a girl that lost alot of weight from Sparkpeople and it hit close to home with me. I remember after seeing that video I broke down and cried because I realized she was the exact age as me and I thought to myself" if she can work that hard to lose weight.. why cant I?". All she did was cut back her eating and exercised that was it. No diet pills, no starving her self until she was anorexic. Nothing but the good old fashion way. I spent so much time doubting myself believing that I couldnt lose any weight when I never really gave it my all and tried. Yeah sure I went on every diet in the book like slim fast, atkins, zone diet etc. but, I never really just tried it the old fashion way, Just diet and exercise. I'll never forget the day when I saw that video and decided that I was going to change my life for the better. Slowy I started exersing. Taking jogs at night around the neighborhood. Getting up really early to workout on demand and cutting back on my eating of coarse. Since then it was history. I took off a semester from college and dedicated all my time and commintment into losing this weight. That was the best desicion of my life. Thanks to spark I have lost 82lbs even though my intial goal was to lose 120lbs within 3 years. I am very proud of myself! Never in my wildest dreams I thought that I could lose weight and 82 at that was just awesome. Of coarse I fell off the wagon a few times but the key was to get back on and keep trying, and I did I didnt let anyone tell me diffrent. NO more excuses, NO more doubting myself, No more wishful thinking. I was determined to lose this way no matter what! I went from a unhealthy 18 year old that was 300lbs and a size 22 to 218lbs and a size 14. Which is the biggest accomplishment in my whole 21 years of life. I find myself being so much happier than I was 3 years ago. My confidence and self esteem sky rocketed. I can hold my head up proud now. Before I never thought I was beautiful or attractive but I know I was I just couldnt see it yet.. Now I know that my inside matches my outside and I know that I'm beautiful no matter what size I am.. I remember thinking I cant even get a boyfriend because I'm so fat and ugly but I know that wasnt true but at the time I didnt believe that. Now not to sound arrogant lol but I can get any guy I want because I'm more happier and content with myself and its funny because I do have a bf now and I tell him that all the time lol.. Also I can go in a store without the sales person looking at me crazy like '' What is she doing in here, she know she cant fit these clothes". I'm in a better place now and nothing is going to stop me. I'm the happiest girl right now! I honestly feel like I'm on a high and life is good... I'm still trying to get to my GW one day at a time and at the end of the day I know slow and steady always wins the race. I thank all my spark family because without them I know I could not do this alone. I'm never going stop I'm going to keep pushing through until I cant anymore and I know thats not going to happen anytime soon :). I see so many inspirational pages on SPARK that gives me so much motivation because I know I have it in me to do whatever I put my mind to. So I hope that I can inspire at least one person on here just like someone inspired me :) WE CAN DO THIS!!
