When I was younger....

Sunday, December 29, 2013

When I was younger and used to picture myself as older I never saw myself past the age of 28. I turned 26 in August. Part of me thinks if I continue how I have been going with my life (health-wise) I won't make it to 29. I know this sounds silly but it also makes sense to me. I've definitely tried dieting before and would lose some weight but would never let myself continue long enough to lose even a dress size. I just weighed myself and am at 300.4 pounds. I don't remember where I was at when I stopped spark people the last time, but I do know that I have been heavier than I am now. To be honest I was not expecting the number to be that low.

I currently work as a server at Cheddars. The worst part about working at a restaurant are the hours. Most people would say the temptation is unbearable. But I only eat after my shift and only drink water during my shift. The hours make it so that everyday I am eating at different times and do not always sleep at the same time either. Sometimes I don't get to eat until midnight.

I'm definitely looking to help myself this time around. I know that in the past I am the only thing that has gotten in my way. I won't let that happen again. I'm going to be a friend to myself. I'm going to be my own motivator! I know I am capable of becoming the person I want to be inside and out. I'm ready to begin the rest of my life!

    I love how you say when you were younger hahaha and then to find out your only 26 yrs old............ooooooooooooooooh to be 26 yrs old again! You should get a pedometer and see how much walking you do during the day , you need to bring food from home and have a lunch at a set time you must get some kind of breaks there.
    You have to love yourself enough to set some kind of a schedule, even if your only eating some kind of fruit so that your not starved for the day or cut sandwiches in quarters and eat them in between.
    You can't use your job as an excuse, you are in the prime of your life right now you need to live it to the fullest!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Losing weight is tough but at your age if you lose that weight you have a better change of your skin bouncing back and not having that real loose skin after weight loss.
    Good luck on your journey!
