Day 181 - They told me I couldn't do it!!!
Wednesday, September 28, 2011
I started a book study Tuesday night last week! Made to Crave! Awesome!!! Sometimes I get so caught up with loosing the weight that I forget why I wanted to loose it in the first place. I forgot that God put it on my heart to run a weight loss camp for girls, I forgot about my beginning.
So I was thinking back when I first started my weight loss journey at 280 pounds. I was asking for advice from family and friends and I believe it was my sister (I love my sister and I know she only had the best intentions) but she said to me You're too far along in your weight gain, you probably won't be able to loose it with just diet and exercise, you should probably look into a weight loss surgery. I have to say the reason it took me almost 3 years to loose 80 pounds is probably because of that... Honestly I can't afford a weight loss surgery! Even if I could there are too many risks. I'm sure there are going to be a few people who are going to say weight loss surgery is the best way to go... but not for me! I firmly believe that there is not magic pill or magic surgery, if I don't learn how to take care of my body I'll gain the weight back every time.
So taking that, I'm now determined that I'm going to loose the weight the way it came on, I'm going to eat right and move more and hey so far I've lost 80 pounds! I'm so close to being under 200 pounds I can reach out and touch it!!! (I might even be under 200 already but my weigh in is on Saturday) With God there is nothing holding me back from being healthy and happy without weight loss surgery!!!
thank you for letting me share
