Comparisons....


Saturday, July 14, 2012

My journey to weight loss and a happier healthier life started in January 2012. I was on medical leave for a bad knee,which required surgery . I weighed in @ 300 lbs and I was not happy with myself and I knew that I had to change the way I eat and live, if I wanted to get slimmer and healthier. My doctor told me to loose weight and offered to give me some pills to help. But I turned him down , because I know that it is only a temporary fix.
Starting Spark people was the best thing I ever done. It holds me accountable for my actions. I know I have to track my food every day, so I don't get side tracked. Some of my friends think I getting obsessed with tracking, but I don't let it bother me, because I am doing this for myself .
Here are some comparisons to my weight loss journey.
300lbs -my beginning weight


My weight now 270lbs


And this will be my goal 200lbs


I am going from a big fat catfish to a sleek pretty fish.
But the journey is not over yet.

You should feel so proud of your achievments!!!! You will reach your goal because you have decided to stay focus. People will always say things to make us stop tracking, but keep going you are on the right track!!!!

    Good blog, and good for you not taking the pills from the doctor. Why do they always want to solve a problem with pills? You are doing a fantastic job, keep up the good work. emoticon emoticon emoticon
