Hello my name is Angela, i'm 45 and way over weight.
i had gotten up to 286 lbs. in 1999 and i told my self i have to do something i had no energery to do anything at all. myself and my mom had started walking and exercising everday. i had gotten down to 145 and i felt good, looked good, was healthy and i could do any thing and not be short of breath.i started putting it on a little at a time in 2001. Now in 2012 I am at 248 lbs but i really want to get down to about 145 again. i know that isn't my ideal weight but at my age and all i will be good at that weight and the Dr. agrees also. I know I can do it because I did it before. For now i am taking it 10 lbs at a time that way it wont seem as much to lose. And maybe i wont get over welmed with it and stop again.
A little inspiration to take it one pound at a time. . .
"Hello, do you know me? If you don't, you should. I'm a pound of fat and I'm the HAPPIEST pound of fat that you would ever want to meet. Want to know why? It's because no one ever wants to lose me; I'm ONLY ONE POUND, just a pound! Everyone wants to lose 3 pounds, 5 pounds, or 15 pounds, but never only 1 pound. So I just stick around and happily keep you fat.
Then I add to myself, ever so slyly, so that you never seem to notice.
That is until I've grown to 10, 20, 30 or even more pounds in weight.
Yes, it is FUN being ONLY ONE POUND OF FAT left to do as I please.
So, when you weigh in keep right on saying, "Oh, I only lost one pound." (As if that was such a terrible thing.) For you see, if you do this, you encourage others to keep me around because they will think I'm just not worth the effort."
