Weight loss the only thing that bothers me more than anything. I’m not saying that being a plus size woman doesn’t mean you’re not beautiful. But, let’s be more realistic. Achieving the ideal weight is a place to be since our health predicts our quality of life.
PATIENCE. Let’s be realistic here. You won’t drop two jeans sizes in one day. And, you won’t lose fifty pounds in a month. You’re going to binge every now and then. You will go a day or two without working out. Your weight is going to fluctuate here in there.
Eventually, you will try to do different techniques and they’re not going to work. My dear, you are a human being and you’re going to fail. But, nothing great is ever accomplished without a few obstacles. JUST KEEP GOING!
When the people from my past saw me the only thing that they noticed is how I gain so much weight.
Sometimes, I shrugged it off. But, oftentimes it leaves me feeling helpless not to mention that my confidence is getting lower and lower every time I hear them that I need to lose some pounds.
It seems an innocent gesture at first, they comment on how chubby I am. But, at the back of their mind, they are thinking that I’m slacking and can’t even control my weight.
During college, I had a normal weight. I felt that I’m a regular student and most often than not criticize the people who are obviously fat in my eyes.
Never have I thought that I’ll undergo the same struggle. Furthermore, this struggle had been the center of my universe. I can’t think clearly and I starve my self to death most often.
If I hear one comment regarding my weight I usually stop eating for a day. In return, I binge eat after. Filling my tummy with all the food that I eat.
Weight loss Delima
I’m a nurse. So, I definitely know how our weight affects our health. As our waistline and weight increase, the risk for hypertension and Diabetes Mellitus also increases.
Not to mention that it could lead to Cardiac Anomaly and produces a different kind of uncomfortable symptoms.
I could not control what I eat. It seems that food is controlling every aspect of my life. And, the only thing that makes me happy is just eating more food to satisfy my insatiable cravings.
At the age of 30, I still don’t know how to practice healthy eating. Moreover, I know the foods that are nutritious. But, I’m often consuming foods that are not healthy.
Weight loss is my goal to get my confidence back.
Every day is a struggle. I find it hard to find inspiration. But then I realize that as I grow old my options are limited.
I need to start today. If ever I slack, I need to be resilient for me to bounce back to my routine. It’s not a one-time thing.
This should be a lifestyle that I need to live in. Nothing is more important than my health. Undoubtedly, I will struggle at first.
Besides, I’m only human and I’m allowed to make a mistake. I’ll try to lose it one pound at a time, one step at a time, and one day at a time.
Please rehearse it every time you feel unmotivated.
Dear Body, I’m sorry I’ve treated you this way. I’m feeding you with the wrong foods and not taking care of you. I promise to do better and get you back to the best shape fitness level you can be.
