Weight loss, you will be frustrated but keep going

Weight loss, you will be frustrated but keep going
I just wanted to share this with you all today. No negative comments please. I’m a pretty private person. I don’t brag about things. Especially myself. The pictures that I’m posting are embarrassing for me to look at. I sit here now, looking back, wondering how I let myself get to that point. I was the heaviest I had ever been in my life. In July of 2019 I tipped the scales at a whopping 380 pounds. That’s right guys, I was almost 400 pounds. I was the heaviest person in my workplace, the heaviest person in my family. I looked in the mirror at myself and I hated me. I felt disgusted. I felt ugly. I just let myself go.

I got this respiratory sickness in July and when I got on the scale at the doctors office my heart just broke. I told myself, alright this is enough. I’m not going to be this person anymore. I want to be healthy, I deserve to feel good. So I busted ass, I changed my mindset, I stopped eating like trash. Don’t get me wrong, I still have my treats, just in moderation. Don’t deprive yourself of the things you love. Just learn to have a healthy relationship with them. It’s 6 months later and I have lost around 100 pounds. I’m hard on myself all the time. I didn’t realize how much of a change there was until my friends and family started telling me: “wow you look different! Where’s the rest of you!?” Do you wanna know the secret? There isn’t one... there’s no pill, there’s no fad diet. There’s no shortcuts. There’s hard work, there’s sweat, there’s consistency, there’s tears and there is finding that self love that I am so glad that I have found again. I still have a lot of progress to make. Don’t give up on your goals guys, if I can do this, you can do this. It doesn’t happen overnight. You will be discouraged,
it will be hard, you will be frustrated but keep going. You are worth it. Progress, not perfection. Keep on keepin on.
