I Am Not Like Really Overweight, But...

I could still stand to lose some weight around my hips and lower stomach. When I lose 10 lbs I will feel great... when I lose 15 lbs I will feel even better. I could keep going to 20 or even 25 and not have to worry about looking too skinny, that is how much hip and butt I have going on. I will just be hoping along the way I don't lose my.... um...ahem...what I'm happy with, anyway....

My weight gathers around my butt and lower stomach, (ok and the chest area I am happy with)... :/ everywhere else I look average I guess. I have made my mind up though and I am mad at myself for not getting serious about this until now. Growing up, I was able to lose weight I wanted to and damn it all I am going to do this!

Up until now, the reason I have not felt serious about it is partly because I hate feeling judged about my body, or having someone want me for how I look. I want people to like and know me for who I am not just how tight and firm my body is (or will be) lol. I also was not serious because I had decided I looked ok and that was good enough, but even though it might be good enough, I finally accepted that it could be better!!

I appreciate all words of encouragement on this journey and really I just wanted to post this as a sort of certificate or way of helping my accountability. I have told people here as well as my close friends and family offline, and aside from telling everyone, I just have resolved within myself... that this is very important to me, and will be done.

I may not have given a d*a*m*n and thought I looked ok, but now I give more than a damn lol, and I am going to look better than ok. And truly, madly, deeply....I am doing it for ME, and not anyone else. For my own satisfaction, for my own continued health.... here I go.

I did the 10 Day Transformation Cleanse. It helps you lose weight (5-20 lbs.), reset your metabolism, detox your system and break addictions. It is all organic, non-GMO with no artificial crap. I lost 6 lbs. in 10 days and felt really good while doing it. I have a real addiction to chocolate haha, but this has been helping.

I lost over 50 pounds after reading a book called Think & Lose Weight by Phillip Collins. I previously tried everything, from exercising like a mad man to starving myself. This book just makes sense. Once you get your head right, losing weight becomes easy. Didn't believe it at first, but tried it and it worked. The book is on Amazon.

I lost the weight I wanted when I discovered a health nurse and fitness guru at www.afitnurse.com. Gave me all the resources I needed, community and encouragement, made me feel like I had a team of people right on the same path with me. Made me feel empowered and proud rather than like I was struggling. A lot of losing weight for me was mindset. I really needed some tough love and accountability to make it happen which is what I got from being on her team. To be able to join a challenge with others, mark your results, it really gives you incentive. So happy with my results. And so proud of myself!! Maybe it can help you too. There's also tons of encouraging stuff and delicious but healthy recipes on the Facebook page you can take a look at. www.facebook.com/afitnurse. It's all about eating right, finding a workout you like that will blast your heart rate, self control, believing in yourself and making it a lifestyle for life. Good luck, I hope you find something that works for you! You can do it!

U are sooo rude I was just offering because u said you wanted to lose weight. Anyway you obviously have more issues than that good luck!

I honestly feel you and I know where you're coming from. I too was feeling the same way. I am currently 5'9 and I weighed 300lbs. Now this is what I tried because I've cried myself to sleep many of nights because of my weight. I had men look at me in disgust because of my weight and I really want to settle down. I've tried diet pills, Sensa, slim fast, weight watchers, etc! My depression got the best of me. So my cousin on Facebook Victorious-One Scott told me about this shake mix that taste like cake mix. It is called Body By Vi and I'm thinking to myself what makes this any different? So she invited me over to house and made me a shake. It was sooo good! So I was like how much do it cost? She said any where from $49-$299 depending on my budget. So I was like ok I'll try it since I've tried everything else. So I joined her team and I drinking the shake helped me manage the way I eat better. So I take a shake for breakfast and add some fruit to it to spice it up (my opinion), and then a gronola bar. Then for lunch I'll have a sub sandwich and some fruit. Then for dinner I'll have some baked Tilapia, steamed vegetables, a baked potato, and my second shake. I change my meals everyday though. But still eating the same just in moderation has helped me tremendously! I have been on her team for a month now and I have lost 25lbs so far! I am currently 275lbs. I'm loving the new me so how about joining the Challenge with me? I'll be your support system. Just go to my cousin Victorious-One Scott page and she will give you more information if you're interested. I hope this helped.
