Never in a million years did I think I would look in a mirror with disgust and shame. But this past summer that was all I did. After my phase of hating the way I looked and refusing to look at photos of myself..I put my foot down. There was no way I was going on living my life unhappy. I was determined to regain confidence, live my life happy, and go back to the person I once knew who would never let themself do what I did.
Since September I have learned to LOVE the gym, eat completely healthy, and overcome "bad days" and challenges.
So far, I've lost 26 lbs., am 1 pound away from being back to my old happy weight aka GOAL weight, have more of a toned body than I ever have, am back into jeans I wore 3-4 years ago, AND am doing something wild--just booked a trip to NYC to become Zumba certified so I can teach others a FUN way to work! (Something I was taught along my journey)
I'm also becoming quite the cook!! I love to cook! It's so relaxing and fun!
The moral of the story: Never EVER EVER give up on yourself or let anyone tell you that something isn't possible. There were times I would only lose a whopping pound/week but I didn't let that bring me down. Everyone has goals..and those are goals that can be met. It's all about how much you want it!
I could not have done this without my diet.com supporters! Thank you all for your encouragement and kind words. Greatly appreciated. Now I believe just because I don't have 10 more pounds to lose etc. that I should stop blogging or going on this site. I LOVE diet.com and reading everyones blogs!! =)
