Trapped


Saturday, March 30, 2013

Have you ever felt trapped in your body? I woke up this morning with the thought that I am sort of trapped in my body. Let me explain. I just don't feel free, I realized that over the last decade as I piled on the weight I stopped moving more and more because I was afraid of getting hurt. I know I am on the way back to a normal physical life and that there are no real health obstacles to me doing many things I want to do or resume doing except for the fear of the obstacle that is my weight. I remember doing things I wanted to do or try without a second thought about my body's ability to handle it, however, over the last few years I find myself wondering if I weigh too much to participate in certain activities. I don't want to have to make that consideration ever again.

    I had that same feeling. i knew I had an awesome person on the inside but they just couldn't get out. I got out of my own way and told my self to be that person on the inside NOW! It worked!

    Oh yeah, I had the same feelings. One thing you can do is to find modified versions of things you want to do (or the closest thing to a modified version) and attempt to do that. You know how it goes; you gotta walk before you can run.... There's almost always an easier version of every task out there, helps build up the confidence to tackle the biggie later on!

    For a long time I WAS trapped in my body. I was so obese and out of shape, I couldn't do anything. I couldn't even really clean my house because I couldn't bend over or squat down to clean low things, and I would get EXHAUSTED just trying to vaccum one room! I couldn't go anywhere or do anything. I didn't fit into restaurant booths. I barely fit behind the wheel in my car.

If we are overweight and out of shape, we have trapped ourselves, but we are able to break free. It isn't easy but it can be done, we just have to work hard and take it one day at a time. Never forget that you are always worth your best effort.

    I totally relate and have felt the very same way. What is exciting is that you WILL rediscover your body and find new and exciting ways to push your limits as you get lighter and healthier. All those things you feel you can't do will slowly come back into your focus. Some of them will surprise you as you rediscover them. I have had the BEST time reacquainting myself with my body and together we are finding new things to do all the time. (ie..new 4 inch heels.) I still sometimes get that feeling of "let me outta here! Wishing I could step out if my "fat suit." After all, I've still got a long way to go. But those days are getting fewer. You can do it! One foot in front of the other.

    I felt that way! I felt like a skinny person trapped in a fat person body unable to do anything. I wish you all the very best in your journey.
