Hey guys! Welcome to my blog. Today is a bit more personal for me. I am going to be starting a weight loss journey.
Do you ever look in the mirror and cringe at what you see? Like the person staring back at you isn’t how you pictured yourself? That’s me currently. I absolutely dread looking in the mirror because I’m not happy with what I see. I want to be able to look at myself and feel proud about who I am and how I take care of myself.
Let’s get personal
I am 24 years old and I am 5 foot 3 inches *5’4″ on a good day. 😛 And I weigh more now than what I ever have. You see, back in high school I was overweight. I had never really thought much of it back then. I was borderline depressed and so I ate my feelings away. However, the extra pounds didn’t bother me very much. I found comfort in food.
I didn’t have a job until my freshman year of college. My mom had never pushed for me to get one. She had been a single mother of two teenagers (one who quite literally ate her out of house and home and the other one was a basketball player with many friends who basically lived with us) for many years until she met the man of her dreams.
John was so good to my mom and he still is. But with a two income home, it was easier for me to slide under the radar and not get a job. When I got to college, I decided enough was enough. My mom and new dad had done everything in their power to keep my childhood for as long as they could, but it was time for me to be an adult.
Before and after (Before all the weight came back)
I had gotten a job as a hostess of a new restaurant and I started losing weight. I had lost over 40 pounds. I was so proud of myself.
Fast forward to now I quit the restaurant back in June and now I have gained more weight than before. I met a guy who has truly made me the happiest I have ever been and now I weigh more. I quit going running and I started eating out more.
And now I weigh the most I ever have. And that’s the part I’m not liking. So now it’s up to me to lose the weight. I’ve already started making some changes to my diet and when I update you again, I’ll show before and during pictures. I’m also going to wait and reveal what I currently weigh after I have made some progress.
Why do I want to lose weight?
I mainly want to lose weight because I want to be healthy first and foremost. My dad died of a heart attack (not due to weight but because of an accident) but that has taught me that life is short and unexpected. If I have to die, I don’t want to die because of something like not being healthy.
Another reason I want to lose weight is so I can look in the mirror and not be disgusted with how I look. Yes I know, we should all be happy with our selves and have a positive outlook on life. I do have a positive outlook on life, I just want to feel good about it too.
Will you help me?
I don’t normally ask for help, but will you help me? Help me stay on track. Come back to my blog and ask me if I have been working towards my goal. I’m lazy. I know myself and I can be my own worse enemy.
Can I challenge you to go follow my social medias? Send me messages and ask if I have worked out, please! Check in with me. I look forward to hearing from you!
