Not to sound too Adam-Sandler-ish but You Can Do It!
A huge weight loss can be overwhelming... Personally speaking, I have 75 pounds to lose, and if I think about that in weekly losses, I can get to pondering when the $#&! will this be over with!?
But... I am concentrating instead of getting through each day, moving more, eating healthier foods, NOT having second helpings or a second glass of wine, drinking that water, and you know what? It works!
Trust me, I've been in that lazy place before or the depressed place before, but ultimately what gets it for me is how do I want to live my life? Obese or thin and fit? I don't want to spend my youth in size 18/20 jeans ya know... or any part of my life really!
I've given up before, ever since I got down to that glorified weight in 2001 where my thighs didn't touch... and I slowly but surely rebuilt my formerly pudgy body when I went off WW in a state of depression. But this August, I went to a party for my sister, who had just gotten married. And there were lots and LOTS of pictures taken.
What I was left with was lots of photos of me looking exceptionally large in a pink dress
Tummy-roll and bumpy arm fat large. That was my clincher. Here was my awesome sister, fit, svelte, and looking gorgeous in a vintage dress, and I was... EGADS! FAT! Really, really FAT! I felt it... I looked it... my knees hurt... my feet in my high-heeled shoes... ouch! It was not a pretty picture.
So... no. I am most definitely, absolutely NOT giving up. I'm with ya, sister! We'll get there dammit!
