I'm tired of being fat!

Sunday, May 03, 2009

All my life I've been on this diet roller coaster. I absolutely hate looking at myself from the neck down in the mirror. I have all these cute clothes in my closet from when I lost 30 pounds 2 years ago. For some reason, I've been unable to motivate myself. Well, there are some things we don't have control of in life. But, there are things that we do have control of. My obesity being one thing that I am capable of controling. I don't want to stay here. I refuse to stay here. Being tired of being fat is not enough. Being tired enough to do something about it is what it takes. I'm doing something about it right now!

    I understand how you feel. I am approaching yet another birthday. I'm only going to be 26. But I can remember for as long as I can that I would tell my self "by my next birthday I will be in shape and hot!" (Like an 18-19-20 yr old should be. It never happened. 2 kids later I weigh 50+ pounds MORE than I did even then! sooo I understand your lack of motivation. I look at myself some days in disgust and others I don't care and eat a brownie. WHY??? IDK!! I think one day you will just feel it and you will make the change. I read an article in better homes magz about thinking thin. "thin" people don't think about evil food like us. they don't think of exercise as a chore..they just get up and be active like its as natural as breathing. Idk what hit me I started crying. So the next morning I see a lady walking her kid in a stroller around our neighborhood. Nothing new mind you but I stopped my car and talked to her. She may have thought I was nuts but I HAD to and didn't know why! I told her we are new here and wanted to walk with her. She has lost 100lbs this year WALKING! WOW! that was all I needed to quit worrying what passers by think and just go walk and sweat to death outside. I don't know what to say to motivate you. I just know that mine came from out of nowhere. I wish you luck though. don't have to give up everything you love to be thin...just stand to fold laundry, make extra trips putting it away, squat to put up groceries etc...sorry to ramble on your blog..I just felt so inspired and wanted to share!! GOOOOOD LUCK!!!

    Hey girl, I understand your pain. I have tried over and over to get rid of this "GIANT" (WEIGHT) in my life, I too have lost it and then found it again. Today my Pastor's text were "How to defeat your Giant". We are going to defeat this Giant, You pray for me and I promise I will pray for you. We will take one day at a time and pray for strength every day several times a day, we will make better food choices, exercise more and continue to get support and give support to our friends here at SP. We will bring this Giant down. Oh yeah, Those cute clothes, you will wear them again. Be Blessed emoticon
