I already know how to lose weight ...

Tuesday, April 02, 2013

For years I have been reading articles , trying new fad diets and most of all punishing myself for not being successful . So what was keeping me from losing weight before ? Its just a basic Calories in vs Calories burned , I know that , I think I'm ready now to take control of my weight , Ive lost 40 pounds so far and I know I am going to keep going , almost wrote hope to keep going, Losing weight is such a personal issue, before I tried to do it for other people or did it because I felt that other people were judging me .. Coming from a family where everyone is totally skinny and any woman weighing over a 120 was fat , It was hard ! So when your losing weight for another person or looking for other people to value or devalue you based on your weight, you are giving them the power to decide if you have a good day or a bad day , I am not letting other people well meaning or not shape my journey to good health , I am not going to use excuses or fancy trends to sidetrack me in to making excuses for what I already know . Burn more then you eat ...
I know some bigger women who are really Goddesses ! They have self confidence , carry weight well and man do the guys go wild over them ! That's not me and its not about looking good for me its about having the inner self confidence that I need to complete the journey that I want for my life , to become real to me is looking and acting on the outside how I feel on the inside !

    I use to be overwhelmed with worry of what others felt about me. Overly concerned if they "liked me" or not - no longer. I am free.

Looks like you're on your way!
You have every right to be happy!!

Follow your star - Trust your instincts - Dare to be your Best!!
