Only 6 Monthes Ago

Tuesday, February 05, 2013

About six months ago I decided that things needed to change in my life, I tried losing weight by myself in the past because I was ashamed of what it was I weighed and of what I looked like. I didnít dress like other women my age and I didnít act like them either instead I stayed in and didnít go out with friends, slowly becoming a hermit. But then I broke the 300lbs mark and things needed to change, at my heaviest I weighed 312lbs. I didnít feel like I was doing anything wrong, I was eating things that were high in calories and I wasnít being as active as I should have been. In the first month before I found Spark people I didnít lose much and felt like a failure and was once again ready to give up. But then I started to read articles and felt less like I was alone. Most of my coworkers are in shape and not overweight, so I always felt like I was the only one who was having difficulty. But then I saw other people who were my own age and were experiencing some of the same difficulty I was. And now while I still want to lose more weight I can be proud to say I weigh 258lbs, and I know I can do it.
