Ok well I have been reading the forums and really getting to the root of why I am overweight. I feel more positive this time and I feel more confident. I can honestly say I have not been one to do the yo yo dieting...honestly I haven't tried enough and all I have ever done is gain weight. Now I have been between 290-335 for almost four years now. I am almost 25. I sort of feel at the point where enough is enough. Its like I have been waiting for the perfect time to lose weight. But I realize that I need to just start now not later! Here is what I am planning to do...feel free to let me know what you think...
1) July 3rd is grocery day and I plan to get rid of everything I shouldn't be eating. The number one killers for me has been soda and just plain junk food. Also I eat WAY to many carbs. I sat down last night and made a list of everything healthy I could eat. I even pritned some receipes off of here.
I realize chaning the way I eat is step number one for me!
2) Physical activity. It is hard getting a good workout sometimes because I wear out easy and my weight does cause some pain. So I am starting out slower in this area. I ordered some better supportive tennis shoes. Hopefully I can start walking around the block soon. I will try to get some sort of physical activity a day though.
The chaning the way I eat is a really big thing for me. I always have given into eating junk after a week of good eating. I do have a lot of doubt in my head. I have been at such a high weight for so long its even hard to comprehend being under 300 pounds. I still struggle also with will I even lose a pound? I know it sounds ridiculous...but I really think that even I eat right and work out I won't lose weight. Does anyone else feel like that? I know it is so unlogical...but I am not really sure why I feel this way.
Well here I go again I hope to really have success this time. I am ready to feel better!! Also I just wanted to say all of your posts are very inspiring for me!
