Weight Loss Chronicles
I have been a 'Project Wedding Weight Loss' lurker for the last couple of weeks. It it now time for me to start what I've wanted to do since this group was created.
Welcome to the Weight Loss Chronicles by Vera da Silva :) I have started this thread to express my thoughts, feelings, and struggles through the journey I am about to embark on - the WEIGHT LOSS JOURNEY!
I thought about writing this thread for a while now but never did... I finally decided to sit down and write it because it seems that writing (or typing) truly helps me clear my mind, get up off my A#S and workout! I hope that chronicling my thoughts, feelings, and struggles will help other members of Project Wedding stay motivated and feel comfortable writing their own HONEST thoughts, feelings, and struggles through the weight loss process.
Here is my story:
I am 26 years old and LOVE my LIFE! I have a wonderful family, an amazing fiancee and a fantastic career (grade one teacher!). I am a very optimistic person and truly believe that the energy that you give out is what you will receive. I try to live everyday to the best of my ability and try to help as many people as I can in my life. Just like other humans, I have bad days. On those bad days, my energy is bad, and my EATING is HORRIBLE! That is something that I definitely have to work on...
I have been with FI for 8 years. In those 8 years I have gained 25 pounds. Becoming comfortable with someone, the stress of university, and other emotional factors assisted in my weight gain. I am 3 months away from my wedding and I really want to be fit. It's not just about losing weight, it's about being fit and being healthy!
My Plan: Starting right now - starting today - I am dedicating myself to live a healthier lifestyle. I am dedicating myself to live an active lifestyle. Starting today I will ask myself: "WHAT HAVE I DONE TODAY, TO MAKE ME FEEL PROUD?" (Biggest Loser Theme Song).
Today I have started this thread, which is something that I have wanted to do for weeks, and that is making me feel proud.
HERE IS MY CHALLENGE TO YOU! - Do something to make yourself proud! Share it with us - your fellow virutal friends - and let us appreciate you and your accomplishment.
Stay tuned for more WEIGHT LOSS CHRONICLES!....
