This is me at 173 lbs. after a 12 lbs weight loss!!! :) July 2010
Shared Food & Fitness Trackers
My name is Katie.. I am a 24 year-old college student. I have decided after so many trials to losing weight through pills, fad diets, and non-fad diets that my life is worth it through a positive lifestyle. I have been eating so junky for about 10 years now, and I regret it because I am currently paying for it.
I have been on Sparkpeople before with failures because of not taking weight loss seriously and keeping it off! This is my mission from now on. I came to realization of my lifestyle change in mid-June 2010 and hopefully it continues on forever. I just came today from vacation where I only gained 1 lbs., which proved to me that I can stay in my lifestyle where ever I choose to go. I lost 13 lbs. so far. I have a goal to being 120 lbs, and I know this can come true if I manage to kick ALL of my bad habits. I am a strong believer that God will help me get through this with ultimate success if I work on it without ever giving up.
I realized that I MUST MOVE TO LOSE, and sitting on my bed or couch, sleeping, or eating animalistically will NOT DO ME ANY GOOD..
What do I do to move?
I am not a very active person, but in June, I started to go to the gym and jump on the treadmill for half an hour, and go home dead after... Now I stay at the gym for a whole hour without any pains, because of the reminder that the COUCH CRIES AND WISHES FOR ME TO SIT ON IT! I REFUSE. I REFUSE THE OLD, UGLY HABITS, AND GENERATE NEW ONES EVERYDAY.
On days I can't go to the gym or if it's closed for convenience, I study and stick with the plan that I am stronger than the couch.. I would like to be a lot more active, because it's in my desire to fit back in my clothes. I NEVER EVER STRIVE TO COMPARE MYSELF TO PEOPLE, SINCE WE ARE ALL THE SAME, HUMAN BEINGS. WE ARE ALL HUMANS, ONLY I HAVE A MORE ANIMALISTIC TRAIT OF EATING FOOD THAT IS NOT HEALTHY FOR ME. I STRIVE TO KICK IT EVERYDAY BY DOING SOMETHING SMALL TO CHANGE MY LAZY LIFESTYLE.
Weight loss is a privilege for those faithful with brains clean enough to think in the right direction to amaze others, influence those who need it, and surprise those who could not think you will make it.
