My Give Up List

Tuesday, September 02, 2014

Inspired by: www.sparkpeople.c
, I wanted to do my own list of the things I gave up over the course of my weight loss, health,and fitness journey. Maybe someday I will be feeling defeated, down, and overall unmotivated, and this will be what gets me up again. Who knows? Either way, it's just nice to look at all the good things that have come from the past five years, all the good things I'VE accomplished.

I've given up:

~ An overweight BMI of 26.28, not very overweight, but that's how it starts. Or in my case, where I put a stop to it

~ Size 10 jeans that I squeezed into because I didn't want to find out I was higher.

~ The baggy men's band tee shirts to hide not just my gut, but my shame, insecurity, and sadness.

~ I gave up using food to fend of emotion, and boredom. Now I'm properly taking care of my problems through diet, exercise, therapy, and medication.

~ Most of my self hate, hey, we all have bad days.

~ The inability to do a single squat without assistance.

~ The insane idea that I could never change.

There's probably more, but I'd need more time to think about it. Maybe I'll add to it in the future.
One of these days, I may do a list of what I've gained as well. : )
