Don’t give up. I tried all kinds of ways to lose weight. I was fat and felt bad about it since I was a kid. I did Atkins, Jenny Craig, Nutrisystems, various herbal diets, just exercise, just eating good, body building diets; you get the message.
In the end, my sister invited me to Weight Watchers. I did not want to go since I always thought it was a girl thing. I sure am glad I went to that first meeting. I started Weight Watchers on Dec. 13th, 2006. When Dec. 13th, 2007 came, I was 120 lbs lighter. I lost a total of 130 lbs and have kept it off now for 1 year. The day I posted this was my 2 year anniversery.
If you did not see my before and after pic post (https://run4change.wordpress.com/2008/12/13/before-and-after-pics/), here is another look.
If I could lose the weight I know that you can too. It is so helpful to have people cheering for you and having people to work at the weight loss with. Weight Watchers is a great way to lose weight and it seems to be very livable. The hardest part is to just start the big life change of becoming healthy. You know, eating healthy, exercising, and changing the way you think about yourself and food.
Remember, you are starting a process. You will be going through changes. You may encounter struggles but you are sure to encounter many victories. Each pound you lose will make you healthier, stronger, and more physically capable to perform the normal activities your life has to offer and more. If you’re on the journey right now and feeling discouraged, just read around this blog. Talk to a friend. Read about the success of others. Think about how far you have come. You are not alone in your journey. I’m here. Heck, millions of us are here. You will be able to do what you are wanting to do. Give yourself time and you’ll make it.
Getting to the starting line is the biggest victory. After that, if you can just endure the ups and downs of the journey you will end up at the finish line. Think how hard you worked for other goals that you have achieved. If you would like to contact me with questions or just to get some inspiration/encouragement, please use the form below.
