I have been trying for many years to lose weight. I was almost to the weight I was before I got pregnant for my daughter, but then my father in law passed and I quit my job, depression hit hard, and I gained all of my weight back I had lost plus some. Last year I hit my all time high of 315 pounds. This number I am extremely ashamed of, however, it does no good to beat myself up over the number on a daily basis.
I have been through so many yo yo diets it is unreal. It is amazing how making small changes in your day can have a big impact on your body.
Over the past two weeks, I have been trying to do better, we have been walking more, and I have been eating less, and drinking more water. As of today I have lost a total of 14 pounds since March 20th, 2012! Whenever I see that scale go down, it makes my day that much better.
I decided to try on a pair of shorts in the size I once wore 5 years ago, and they fit!!! Well almost they are a bit tight in the belly when I button them, but before I couldn’t get them past my hips… I HAVE HUGE HIPS!
When we get back home, my husband and I are going to work together, I think that is what I need my husband coaching me on. I know I am going to get pissed at him because he is going to be super hard on me, but I know deep down that is what I need. I hope to get to atleast 140, and I can than be a bit happier about myself. Being heavier sucks, and it limits what one can do.
I want to have a more social life, and my weight makes my anxiety be out of control. Losing weight will bring my outgoing personality back!
