My 3rd year of weight loss
Monday, December 15, 2008
My trainer told me I would not drop alot of weight this year he said this year will be about inches lost, chisling and sculpting the body and he was right. Even though I havent lost a significant amount of weight this year my body has never looked so good. I mean the definition Im seeing is truly remarkable. Ive dropped 2 sizes which is just as important as a weight loss. To think that 3yrs ago I was busting out of a 5x top and a size 30w in pants. I now wear a size 16-18 in a top and a size 14 in pants. Being over 400lbs I never thought this would happen, that I could achieve this. To me being in these sizes is like being in a size 2. For the first time I can walk into any store a buy a nice outfit for myself and every time I go in a try my outfit on I try so hard not to cry but I always do because I cant believe its me in the miror.
I continue to work hard and Im staying on my program and there is no quit in me. Ive been a fighter all of my life and Im fighting hard for this I dont care how long it takes. I have learned to be patient with my body and let it do what it wants to do. All I have to do is stay focused, determined, disciplined and continue doing the work that needs to be done to succeed.
It can be frustrating not seeing the numbers on the scale go down but Im here to tell you to never give up. This journey is so much more than a weight loss. Its learning about your body and feeding it good all natural foods and working out to have a healthy heart so we can live longer. Stick with your program no matter what the scale says and FIGHT FIGHT FIGHT!!!!! I am and you are so worth it. When you get discouraged dont quit thats too easy gather your strength and stay faithful to yourself, to your workouts, to your eating plan believe me eventually you will reap the rewards of your hard work and your willingness to stick with it. You and I have alot of support, encouragement and advice available to us to help us succeed in this journey of weight loss. For once in our lives lets be good to ourselves by shedding this weight and being "Fat Free" once and for all. Lets love ourselves enough to never ever quit.
Much love to you
