Since June 01, 2008 I have worked out and cut my calorie content. I have worked hard. I lost 80 lbs have keep it off for 3 years. I just do not want to workout 6 days. I want to eat as much as I want and what ever I want when ever I want to eat it. It has been said if you do something long enough you will like it. Well for me it just has not happen. I have never liked to workout and I still do not like it even after 6 years.
Before June 08 I worked out 3 days a week and did not watch what I ate and of course it did no good for my weight loss.
I know some will say. Oh you do not have to work out so much. Yea, yea. I have tried less and for my b-o-d-y. It will not work.
Look I am venting now I am hoping this will help me and others who may read this.
I May Not Like It but I WILL DO IT. I just can not go back to 225 lbs. I know what ever it takes I must and will do it. I can not climb 80 lbs of fat again.
I truly like the way my body looks and feel. I Just do not like the hard work it takes to keep it there.
Even after the weight loss it takes constant awareness to keep the body in order. I know what ever I did to get my body to this place. I have to keep doing it to keep it here.
Oh but for me it is a hard road to travel, it is not easy, but who said life would be fair or easy?
Ok, Ok I am done venting. I so hope that who ever should read this, that this will help them along the way. Help you to know you are not along in your thoughts, but do not use them to give up.
Let me say that I am truly Blessed if not for getting to the 225 lbs, I would not be where I am today. I would not be in such great health.
So please do not get me wrong I am so Thankful for getting to this place, I am Thankful that the Lord saw fit to allow me to see what I needed to do to get healthy, lose weight and stay healthy.
May You be Blessed

This weight loss journey that has turned into a health journey has been so eye opening, It has truly taught me so much about myself, I have grown so much. It is such a wonderful feeling, What I truly know for sure is that You have to find what works for you. I have read books on weight loss, read articles, on the web, in newspapers, in magazines, Looked at Oprah, Dr OZ, Dr Phil. Bob Green. and of course Spark People and in the end I had to figure it out for myself.
Don't get me wrong. I took what would works for me from every one and every thing, That is where the journey begins. With Me. Trial and error. I know it can be very easy for some to just follow a diet plan just do every thing that they say and it works. The problem for me is I just don't like most of the foods they what you to eat So for me I had to work it out. I know I will have to do this for the rest of my life so I had to figure out what I could do and what I know I could eat and enjoy for the rest of my life, That is why I am not on a diet but a life style change.
I have met my weight goal so now the true journey begins, what will it take to keep my weight where it is now. Again trail and error. I know I can and will work it out. I have been so Blessed, I can't Thank God enough for opening my eyes.
June 1, 2008 225 lbs
June 16, 2010 140 lbs
What this journey has taught me is. You have to find what works for you and go for it, and know that what works will not always stay the same. It will change from time to time and you must change with it.
