Always look happy, keep the smile on your face. It does not matter how you feel inside. A snide comment or a side comment made by someone, whether it was about how much room I took up, or what I was eating or how I moved, I could not let it show how it hurt.
The brighter the smile the more miserable I was. Keep going, moving forward, always smiling.
If they didn’t think what they said hurt, maybe they would stop. It is so much easier to stay at home, not to socialise, not to go out. Safe at home. Life just passes you by. You blink and 10 years has gone by.
Spending my time working without doing what I really wanted? Why did others always get to do what they wanted, the holidays, the adventures? Why not me? That was the point in which I changed. That was the point in which I took charge and decided not to be unhappy.
I was in control and would do what ever it took to lose the weight and start living my life. Realising that weight loss surgery was an option was startling. It was not an easy option but had to be used in conjunction with healthy eating and exercise. Whatever it took I would do it.
My life HAD to change so I would change.
Eating healthy took some time, lots of education and research. There is so much misinformation out there and fads. Then adding exercise. So tired, how can I even do the 10,000 recommended steps? It took time but slowly I got fitter and eventually reached my goal. It is so easy to look at me now, the “new” me and think that it was so easy, that I didn’t have to work to look like this. That would be wrong. It was slow and hard work. But I did it and continue to change.
Have you ever wanted to lose weight, have considered surgery or had it but not had the results you wanted?
Why not call me to see if I cant help?
