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.
