I look back when I first began my new "lifestyle" change in March. These WERE my feelings:
I was overweight - BMI was 26.8 5'3" 151 pounds
I felt ugly
I would wear the same clothes over because nothing seemed to fit.
I used food to make me feel good.
I was self conscious, I hated looking at myself.
I would have never thought about wearing a bikini
I drank nothing but soda and ate out everyday
I would overfill my plate and go for seconds
I smoked cigarettes and other stuff...
Had an I DONT CARE attitude and hated everyone
Now, 5 months later
I am Healthy 133 pounds 23.6BMI
I feel beautiful
Clothes I have been holding on to, are now part of my wardrobe and I love making outfits
I only eat food when I am hungry
I am proud with the way I look and I love looking at myself in the mirror
Now, I am walking around my pool in a bikini.
I don't drink soda, Only water and I rarely eat out.
I use portion control and limit myself to only 1 plate and a late snack
I quit smoking cigarettes and the other stuff
I try to use my knowledge and experience to help others with losing weight
Although I am still not at my Ultimate weight loss goal, I look back and I am proud of my accomplishments and I love the way I feel about myself. I made a lifestyle change that I will be living for the rest of my life. Never do I want to feel that way about myself again.
By the way, My birthday is in August....I will be 25 on August 25. I think that is kinda special
