This is why I started
Monday, February 01, 2021
I decided to start this weight loss journey because I was big and did not like what the number on scale was saying (I don't weigh at all before then). 10 years ago I decided to join sparkpeople and use that for support and encouragement to achieve my goals.
Apart from the number on the scale, most clothes were no more fitting, I was battling with infertility (still there), I was feeling really clumsy and I didn't enjoy that at all.
Fast forward to this morning, have I gotten to my goal weight? Yes, I have gotten to the lowest weight maintainable. No, I didn't maintain. It had been back and forth over the years.
Have I become knowledgeable? Yes, I now understand my body and I treat it with the understanding that I have gathered on this site.
Am I still clumsy? No, I have learned to organize myself, my days, my weeks, my thoughts, people around (so they don't keep interrupting my plans)
I have been healthier over the years, even though I have had some illness surface here and there, I keep overcoming them and I always ask myself "what would have happened if you were not healthy", of course I won't have what it takes to fight them.
I had also become a help to those who are also confused as I was, it is so fulfilling see people thank you for helping them.
Overall, I did win.
