I always thought I was unsuccessful...

Tuesday, March 13, 2012

I have been here since 04/2/09. Doing good, then doing bad. Back and forth, back and forth. I always thought I was unsuccessful and unable to change. How wrong I was. I was just striving for the wrong goals. I first began my weight loss goal because I gained 10 - 15 pounds after I quit smoking. All I wanted was to be thin again. I use to have pics of thin models on my page for "inspiration".

All has changed. I now use pics of strong, healthy models for inspiration. I quit trying to be thin and changed my goals. First new goal was to get rid of the "all or nothing" attitude. I did. Second goal was to eat better. I am. Third goal was to learn to run. I am. I am learning to run slowly, but learning none the less. I am doing intervals and loving it. It makes me feel good and strong. My fastest 5K is 39:52. When I changed my goals, my extra weight just fell off!

How far I have come from all or nothing, eating badly, and barely able to walk 15 minutes at 2.7 mph without getting winded. I now went 55 minutes this morning, doing maximum effort on my last interval. Winded yes, but in a good way! My lungs no longer kill me!

Thank you SP and and SP members for supporting me emoticon
