progress update 5/5/14 -49lbs or so down
Monday, May 05, 2014
Hello. Ive been trucking right along sparking away. Its been the highlight of my year so far. I truly feel it in my soul that i am determined to get to a weight that i havent seen since i was young. Do you know that is a personal blessing i give to myself. I have seen what life is like to be obese for many years. Its so depressing, like before i heard about sparkpeople i barely wanted to live when i got to a certain weight. Now life has so much meaning.
Each blog i will have to write my weight and loss because i was going through my old blogs and didnt seem to find much info.
For now, i am almost at 50lb loss from my original 333lbs. I weigh 284.1 last weigh in, and that made it 49lbs down.
Being so obese and hopeless in the past was scary, and i dont want to forget how sad i was trapped in that mess. I was so tired all the time, and i was so uncomfortable. I wanted to cry daily. That is why i cant forget. It truly keeps me going and appreciating how good life can be. Even when i am stressed or have dealt with drama nonstop as i always do. knowing im healthier makes it all the better.
Im already feeling definition in my arms and legs slowly that feel muscular and fit. I dont get clinically depressed often like so much ive dealt with for years. I motivate myself to workout, i test my strength against food addiction and am getting so much better at passing up junk everyone brings over.
I have a goal. I keep my eye on that goal. My personal journal has been my best friend, and i write in it constantly and man that is so helpful!
Ive lost 50 or so pounds before on sp, and ended up still needing to learn a few mistakes, now that im back to the loss, i can continue and go farther than ever.
I will always be thankful. only i know what i was like before losing weight, and trust me, i love life now.
It only gets better from here.
