Happy Easter Friends.
I have had a great day. Started the day with 28min on the Stationary Bike. I am puzzled as to why people don't encourage weight loss. Ok, don't get me wrong. I am not saying people are against it but rarely do people encourage you to lose weight.
Ok, here is my case. When I was hitting almost 260lbs, no one ever told me that I needed to lose weight. No one. Not my family or friends. No one ever had a heart-to-heart talk with me on the need to be healthy, even though they knew that I was both unhealthy and unsightly.
So, I went ahead and chose to start living healthy. I started making good choices and have so far lost 61lbs with 32 more to go. However, my so called friends are "encouraging" me not to lose more. They feel, I have lost enough and would look haggard!!!!!!!!!!!!
Imagine that?! I am still 192lbs at 5ft 5. I am still grossly obese. Why wont they encourage me to get to a healthy weight? Why encourage me to continue being obese?
I am at a loss. You know what? I don't care what they say or do. I am SERIOUSLY pressing on towards my goals. I will continue doing it in a healthy way and will get there. I will continue to tap into God's strength and will not fail.
So dear Friends, that is my case on this beautiful Easter afternoon. Last words, if you are like me, surrounded by such people, simply IGNORE THEM AND MOVE ON!!!
