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.
