Lifegenesis, Great Idea packing up that scale! One little change at a time. I'm 47, I weight 210. Last year I ran a half marathon at the weight of 258. I didn't think I could accomplish such a task, I did it and never looked back. As of November 7, 2011, to present I have lost 48 pounds. Does it get discouraging about our weight? Sure it does! You are a beautiful young lady that has the right idea, one day at a time and small changes. Always reward yourself for little goals you set for yourself. Put a positive spin on every day. As soon as I stopped thinking negatively, the weight issue seem to handle itself. I am currently training for a marathon in October, just another task that will be accomplished! You are an inspiration to others. Good Luck and I will be checking back on you. 2242 days ago
Sherry it wasn't a downer vlog that MOST of here don't also feel. Listening to you on here, is how I am feeling DAILY for the last week. I hope what I said on your last vlog, didn't make you upset in anyway. I would NEVER say it for that reason. Just know that ok :))
I wish you the VERY BEST on this journey. I KNOW we can do this. I have done it before, and I know I can do it again. I know how the depression creeps in and settles on us, before we know it that fork is in our hand and taking the last bite. ugg it SUCKS..
I know you are still young (I'm 47 lol) but just don't give up honey. EVERYDAY is a new day. Some days I feel like its just a chat group being here. But then others, I really feel the encouragement. So lets do it for each other..I need it as much as you do girl..
I don't even know where to start. I relate with so much of what you just said. It can be so overwhelming at times just to realize how young we are and what we've allowed to happen to our bodies. I'm 20 and I weight 250 lbs! I just try and remember everyday that if I had gotten the motivation to do this a year ago I would be so much happier now! I think you are beautiful and I am jealous that even though you are overweight you can hardly see it in your face! I like to say I am an "apple" shape--but I really just put on the weight everywhere. My stomach and butt are disproportionate to my legs though and my face is soooooo awful right now. My pics on my profile are from an angle and if I had done my vlog from an angle below me---oh boy! I hate it. Keep up the good work! You can do it. 2242 days ago
Being fat does suck! I agree!!! I am stoked about you packing up the scale, mostly because I do not have the balls to do it myself. I have to seriously restrain myself in order to do it only once a week. Sorry you got hurt. Bummer. But keep your head up! And maybe hang out with "nicer" friends. ;) 2242 days ago
