I have been on this journey of losing weight and getting healthy for just over a year…and I am more than halfway to my goal.
What would my life had been like if I hadn’t started making changes when I did?
*I would be weigh over 200 lbs…remember I am barely 5 feet tall…this would not be good.
*I would probably have more trouble getting pregnant because of my size and physical condition.
*I would probably have diabetes just like my mom and grandma and be taking insulin at least once a day.
*I would probably have high cholesterol, clogged arteries and high blood pressure.
*I would be out of breathe everyday when I walk from the parking lot into work.
*I would be happy that it was still cold outside because I would not be in a hurry to go outside or wear capris/shorts/bathing suits.
*I would be grumpy just about all the time because I would not be happy with myself.
*I would probably be spending alot of time at home alone because I wouldn’t feel like going out thinking people were judging me and comparing me to how I used to look.
But instead, because I did step up and started making changes to how I was living my life:
*I am knocking on the door of 150 lbs.
*I am continuing to work towards making a good womb for future bebe.
*I have significantly cut out excess sugars, fats and preservatives from my diet.
*I am exercising everyday and now don’t mind parking out a little further.
*I can’t wait for warmer weather to get a chance to start C25K again and go for walks with my husband.
*I feel better about myself and appreciate it when people compliment me on the positive changes they can see in me.
*I have meet some wonderul women who are on the same journey that I am, they give me motivation to contiue when I stumble or feel like giving up.
I am so thankful that I took the time and focused my energy on reaching my goals…I am happier then I would have been if I had continued down the path I was going. I am worth it…and I am realizing that more and more with each day.
