Hello there Spark People!
Been watching lots of motivating stuff lately, so I can keep myself on track with my goals and dreams.
Good news: Eating enough calories and eating five to six meals a day. Trying to drink 8 glass of water more consistently every day or trying. Eat more healthy food and add more protein to my lacking protein diet. Motivating myself and trying to keep on track. Picking myself up from minor defeats. Working out at least three times a week. Beginning to gain more energy and positive momentum for self image.
Bad news: Eating some bad food, I'm so tempted by candy, sweets, ice cream, and lately lots of carbs which I had not have in a long time...meaning bread, pasta, rice and etc. So bad but so good these white sugary...and I'm trying to eat wheat bread so that's the good part.
I feel really good and I'm guessing it's due to the adrenaline rush that I'm getting from working out. I feel like I have more confidence in myself and in my look too.
I've been doing me. Watching videos and trying to figure out ways to build character, confidence, self-esteem, leadership, and being the best version of myself. It's been an interesting but never ending journey because I believe I still have room to grow. I hope that I will be the best that I can be. I also hope that one day I can inspire people. Maybe I'll start a youtube account just for this weight loss journey and maybe push people to at least make an attempt at living their lives to the fullest in their best possible self.
Not to mention I found some of my old clothes and tried them on, some of the bigger clothes are loose and some of the old clothes of the thinner me started fitting again. The clothes fit and feel better. I also beginning to think that I look better in them and I'm probably am from all the working out and toning of body that I tried to keep up with. I have not been the weight that I am now in the longest time ever, about three years so I'm making progress. I'm happy for myself that I'm beginning to take steps in the direction towards my desire and health.
Today when I was working out I've notice how nicely shape I am beginning to turn out in the reflection that I see of myself. No longer that shape called round, but more of the shape that I'm suppose to be. I'm probably between the apple and the hour glass shape, a normal body for me. I can also see my neck and have lost half an inch off my neck, the rest of my body still stay pretty much the same except I think my thighs each gained half an inch of muscle from working out. I don't know if that's a good thing or bad thing or my image of looking thin, but for sure it works out for looking fit, fabulous and healthy.
Thanks for reading! :)
