I can remember clearly how daunting it was just to get started.It wasn't the first time I needed to lose a large amount of weight but at 258 pounds and only 5 ft 2" it was the highest I'd ever been. I just want to urge you to dedicate yourself to this for ONE month and I promise you you'll see changes so quickly that you'll want to carry on. After only one month I was able to do things that I'd thought would never be possible for me again. I couldn't do up the seat belt on the plane or in the car or on a fairground ride. After a month I could. I couldn't reach to clean myself properly when I went to the toilet....this was embarressing and a nightmare....but after a month this was NO PROBLEM AT ALL.I could only go up or down the stairs one step at a time for the risk of my knees failing and for the pain.Now I hardly notice that I am running up and down them like I would 6 years ago.
My weight had made me move like someone at least 20 yrs older.It was disabling me,and a s somone who works as a ballet teacher this was very bad news.
If you feel daunted to start,like I did,please JUST START. Start with baby steps and the changes will start to happen.
I am only 4 months into my journey but it has turned my life around completely. Even at only one month into the journey it had made so much difference.My cholesterol returned to normal and my blood pressure dropped from 180/110 to 120/70.I now am 66 pounds lighter.
Please JUST START.I promise you won't regret it.
If you want be a butterfly then you you have to want to fly so badly that you are prepared to give up being a caterpillar.
