Since this is Jan. 1, I think that we will have many new posters or lurkers. All of us that have successfully lost a large amount of weight know how daunting it is to even consider tackling this task. I want to encourage those at the start of this journey by telling them what a difference my weight loss has made in my life. It is so worth the effort.
I hope that all others who have lost weight, whether 10 or 100 pounds will also post how weight loss has helped your life.
Here is my list, I will probably think of more later.
*Not feeling self-conscious in public
*Fitting in a booth at restaurants
*Fitting in a seat at the movies
*Not worrying about breaking chairs or toilet seats
*Not being jammed against the steering wheel of my car
*Fitting in rides at amusement parks (going next week and should not be a problem)
*Walking for long periods of time without getting out of breath
*Playing with my grandchildren- even sitting on the floor with them
*Not needing a seat-belt extension on an airplane
*Much easier to buy clothes
* I don't have to leave work ahead of others to walk to meetings. I used to do this because I got so out of breath.
* I can take the stairs.
*At my check-up all my numbers were good. I am hopeful that I have avoided diabetes and high blood pressure.
Don't give up. Find your way to lose weight and a year from now, you will be so glad that you did!
