As of this morning, I have offically lost 20% of my original body weight of 300 pounds. Now that I am at 240, I have only 10 pounds left to shed before I reach my inital goal. As for my main goal, I’m striving for 40 more pounds. Honestly, I don’t think I have weighted so little since freshman year of high school. My weight on my drivers license now out weighs me by 20 pounds. If it didn’t cost money or use up valuable time, I would have like to get a new license, just kind of a reminder for myself.
There have been so many different benefits from this, it has truly changed me. I sleep better, I feel happier, people treat me differently, I get sick less, I run faster, I work out longer, I get angry less, and I have a overwhelming burst of self-confidence and a positive self-image. My only regret is that I didn’t do this years ago, how much of my life could I have made brighter if I had implemented self-control and a workout routine? I guess that sometimes, one’s head can only be removed from dark places at specific times in life… luckily, I pulled my out when my chance came along.
This has honestly been the hardest, yet most fulfilling and affirming 10 months of my life. Here’s to taking a scary situation and making it work for you.
