` I have never liked to post pics of myself.. anyone who knows me personally, knows I dont let people take pics of me or video.. I hated the way I looked and I couldnt handle having a pic taken of me. but, now that I have lost 154 lbs, I feel a tiny bit more confident to post one every once in a while when I feel comfortable enough.. it also allows me to put it out there for others to see, to help hold me accountable, even though I slip up -a lot-.. and in hopes I can help even one person, who struggles from obesity..
` I started this weight loss journey at 50 yrs old, and im now 55.. it was a SLOW process due to being so bad off getting around, I was getting close to moving from a walker with a seat on it and wheels, to a wheel chair.. I couldnt walk 5 feet without wanting to collapse and have to sit down from carrying 389 lbs of flesh around for many years, crushing my lungs to where I could barely breathe.. -- to lose weight, all I did was try and move my body a little more each day than the one before, drink lots of water, and ate the same things I always did but I didnt eat as much nor as often the bad stuff.. I just changed the way I cooked my other foods and cut down on portion size.. I still ate out and had my burgers/fries/pizza, but not as often nor as much.. I did quit "all" sodas though.. 3 1/2 years later I still havent had a sip.. ^_^
` due to me having to go slower, it gave my mind time to catch up with my body changes and all the mental stuff it brings.. -- I have been able to keep the 154 lost off for a long period of time, for the 1st time in my adult life.. - you are never too old to start.. never too far gone to try.. I am living proof..
