A Week Of Progress

Friday, October 15, 2010

I have finally got my good eating habits back. I've been easing my way back in my exercise routine. I'm not going to rush exercising because of my back. I'm going to take care of myself better this time around. I got to say eating right again makes me feel good, I've been noticing since the week and half I started my diet, my pants around my waist are getting loose again. Hopefully with a little luck maybe the loose pants will translate into something positive on the scale on Monday. My life has been a tough journey, so dieting I wouldn't expect anything different. Nothing comes easy in this world, you have to work for want you want. That hard you put in will mean so much more when the goal weight has been achieved.

A Set Back Can Be A Blessing

Thursday, October 07, 2010

A couple of month's ago back in May of this year I had hurt my lower back badly and I haven't been able to exercise until now. I gave up on my diet I got discouraged and said "The Hell With It". 3 days ago I had a break through. I decided once again to get my diet back on track. My clothes were getting tighter and I wasn't happy about that. I'm just going to take my time make sure I get my eating habit's in order, then start exercising again. Set back's don't have to mean doom and gloom. They can be good things. Learning how to come back when falling down teaches you a lot of thing's about yourself. Knowing exactly what your goal's are may not mean an easy road. You may sway from the path. Having a reachable goal and knowing what your going to go through to get there is a great adventure for yourself.

Losing Weight Sparked More Than Anticipated

Tuesday, April 13, 2010

Losing weight has been one of the best decisions I have made since asking my beautiful girlfriend to marry me. Not only by losing weight I have sparked something else in my life. I've decided to become a more positive person. Learning more patience and I actually got baptized just a few weeks ago. I'm changing who I used to be. A shadow of my former self if you will. I have to admit I didn't know if I could sustain it. I decided to make a change and I haven't looked back.
I feel very confident these days. When things go from great to worse I don't crawl up in the corner and feel backed in. I stay positive and try to find solutions to my problems, instead of blaming the problem on something else. I feel better about myself especially on how I look. I have lost a total of 42 lbs. in 9 weeks by eating healthy and exercising on a daily basis. I even got my fiancée to lose weight with me. She said I inspired her and now she has lost 15 lbs. I feel good and I now surround myself with good people and friends.
I see things more clearly now then I have in the past. Change is always a difficult thing to go through, but once you commit yourself to something nothing can stop you. I am on quest. Not to just lose weight, but to better myself and become a well rounded human being. Staying positive and learning from past mistakes, and turning them into success makes all the difference in the world.

I recently decided that I wanted to change my life. The way I see it, the way I eat in it, and the way I feel in it. My clothes stop fitting me, things were tight on my body, I was eating horribly and I wasn't feeling good about myself. I looked in the mirror 3 weeks ago, and saw a man that has been through a lot and a face that didn't look like me anymore. My coach used to say to us " If you can look at yourself in the mirror and say to yourself you gave everything you got 100 %, you'll get a good nights rest". That still echo's to me to this day, which moviated me to lose 27 lbs in 3 weeks. That's right 27 lbs and still going strong. Anyone can do it. There's only 2 things you need and that comes from within. Will power and determination. If you can find those 2 things inside yourself, you will be very successful. Once you find those 2 things nobody can take them away from you except yourself.
I'm here to help I know what it's like to fail. Trust me failing can be frustrating, but just remember you fail more than you succeed. Failing teaches you and molds you, and you learn from them. Success comes from failing. Success makes you feel good it's like a drug. You want that success cause you already know that failing is no longer an option, and you know how failure feels. Anybody out there struggling with weight, the way you feel about yourself just remember. Only you have the power to change it. Yes people can help along the way, you can only lead a horse to water. It's up to the horse to drink it. I wish everyone luck in their quest, and if you need help I'll be here to help guide you.
