Today I joined Spark People. I tried it in the past and just never stuck with it for more than a week. I am determined to make it work this time.
I realized lately that my cloths have been tighter and I have been getting winded much easier than normal. Today, while at my parents house I weight myself, I have gained almost 50 lbs in the last 6 months. I remember when I was almost 200lbs in high school I told myself I would never let myself get over 200lbs.
Well here I am, weighing at 311 lbs. I looked at myself in the mirror and just cried. This is not me, I don't even recognize the body and face that I am looking at. I am so disgusted and disappointed in myself, and how the hell do other people think when they look at me?
Something has to change and it has to change quickly and drastically or else I am going to be facing some serious health problems. My father has always been overweight and since he retired 2 years ago he has been eating healthy and exercising. He has lost weight and can spend an hour walking, then another hour biking. If he can do this, so can. Of course I don't have the luxury of being retired, but I have the luxury of being young. So here is to healthy lifestyle changes.
