Dreaming the dream

Thursday, June 21, 2012

I was just thinking about the moment when I decide that enough was enough of being fat. I was home visiting my family over Christmas in 2011 and saw my mom's scale and thought, why not, I haven't weighed myself in forever.
That was when I felt the heart crushing blow to my self esteem. 300 lbs.
That was it. No more messing around, it's time to get serious.
My boyfriend of one month had been trying to get me to go exercise with him and I always had the mentality of "I'm too out of shape to do that." I wanted to start slower with things and go at my own speed. I just need to be more active. That's all I kept telling myself.
It's 6 months later and miraculously I'm down 35 pounds. I still slip up and eat crap food more than I should. (It's really hard to eat healthy on small budgets, but that should be changing here soon.) I gave up drinking pop at the beginning of the year. I walk to and from work when possible. I eat smaller portions of the crap food than I used to.
I just need to get into the mindset of pushing myself more when it comes to exercising. When I get to that point, things will be amazing and I know that my journey will take the next step and boost the amount of weight that I'll be losing. :)
