Excuses lead to a short life

Thursday, May 30, 2013

Im 23 years old and I have been big all my life, NEVER this big though. 3 years ago I lost 70 lbs in 3 short months, I worked my butt off cardio twice a day, walked 10 miles a day and lifted weights for an hour a day. EVERYDAY. I never hit the 199 mark at that point though I lost the 70 lbs and then started working gained 40 of it back. THEN 2 years ago, I started riding my bike hours and hours of just going I lost 45 lbs and got just under 200 lbs, I loved it I fealt healthier better and the fact that I could ride a bike uphill without feeling like I was going to pass out was a good enough reward itself. But then my fiancé and I decided to travel the country, first lived in Montana then Tennessee and many other places which led to living on a sailboat in south florida.. There is where I gained most the weight over the past 2 years and now here I am AGAIN miserable not finding clothes to fit me right and I'm even embarrassed to go outside and bed seen. My body has changed so many times./. This is what I see in the future if I don't change I see nothing, I big blank whole, I don't see a beautiful wedding or a family to raise. I don't see happiness and I know that if I don't do it now, I wont ever do it. I am young, no excuses and though I am scared of failing AGAIN I would rather fail trying over and over again then just give up. This is my life and Im ready to take control right now. emoticon

    It sounds like you are trying to lose weight by making huge, unsustainable changes. You have to find a balance. You also have to realize that whether you are heavy or slender, you are still a worthy human being. Being overweight doesn't mean that you can't have any happiness in your life. You are still you. Still a beautiful person. Your fiance still loves you. You have to love yourself. Rather than focusing on losing weight exclusively, try making a shift to just getting healthy. Losing the weight slowly and in a manageable way will lead to permanent changes so it won't come back. You need to be kind to yourself. Treat yourself the way you treat others. emoticon emoticon

    you cannot view it as failing. your life has gone through some big changes and every time you need to adjust. Health needs to be a life long priority. I recently went from 365 to 265 and now am back to 310 and I am trying to find what works for my life now( I will be 25 in july). It is a struggle daily to make the best choices and sometimes the best choice isn't the HEALTHIEST food/physical wise but it is mentally.

    Your wedding will be beautiful no matter what weight you are at but if you decide you want to slim down for it then you WILL. You just need to decide to do it. You clearly know what to do and what works for your body... now you just need to find a way to make it work for your life right now. You can do it emoticon emoticon
