I cant believe how good I feel about myself. I cant believe I have reached this point of healthiness. I have lost a total of 26 lbs to date...and have reached a normal BMI. I feel amazing and love trying on new clothes! I knew I would get to a point of feeling good..but I honestly didnt think it'd feel THIS good! The only reason I embarked on the journey to eat right and lose the weight was for myself and only myself. No one else was involved..and no one else pushed me. It was ALL my idea..
I'm so proud of myself because in the beginning i'll tell you..it WASNT easy. Cutting out all the foods I loved..my cravings..and pushing myself to workout everyday...(going from a couch potatoe to everyday activity)..it seemed all IMPOSSIBLE in the beginning..but I took it one day at a time. and that thought process worked for me. I believe its different for everyone, and you have to do what works best for you as an individual.
I know I didnt have that much to lose, as other members here on SP have..but just seeing and experiencing all the hard work I did...it just makes me realize how much harder it is for people who are more overweight..and FOR THEM to get down to a normal bmi..I honestly just applaud them. They are some serious motivators for the people who need to get their weight down.
I'm just so happy with the way life is for me now..and my eating habits have changed so dramatically that I dont even crave anything! (especially those magic cookies i'd make twice a wk before starting!).
I hope people read my blog and realize that "you can do it". It isnt an easy task but you have to push yourself if you really want it. And if you put in the hard work of exercising and eating right + calorie counting here on SP, there is no way you wont lose the pounds! Go for it.. I promise you will not regret it looking back 4 months from now!
