Before / After https://imgur.com/F7tJXjI
Hi r / Lossit !!!!!!!!!!!!!! I've been hiding in this sub for so long! When I first tried to lose weight several years ago, I was a little more active in commenting and publishing, but for some reason this time I did not show activity here. I'm not sure why! I think at first I was just not sure if this would be an attempt that would get stuck. After some time, I began to realize and no doubt know that this is an attempt. I’m falling from a bull, and even more recently, but falling is life. Just like going back. Failing does not mean failing, failing means stopping trying.
In any case, I am so worried that you are excited. In fact, I think I was too excited in a weird, weird way. I realized that I lost 100 pounds on March 15, but I just could not wrap myself around it. It was like the present, but it had not hit me yet, I was in shock. Only in the evening I came across the Las Vegas Strip to photograph how empty it was that I was in front of a building with one such as mirrored glass panels and again took a selfie of my body that I was like, "Wow, this is real."
Well, I have three paragraphs, and I did not give you juicy details, I'm sure you want to! In May 2019, I weighed 343 pounds and was thicker than Choji. I hated myself, my life and was afraid to communicate with people. I was elected to isolation for a long time. A very long time. It was a crazy, weird, wild journey, but I'm no longer afraid of people. I like people! For the most part, we are all damn good. Now that I weighed 239 pounds, I no longer feel that I am talking to someone that I am less than them. I feel equal to the people with whom I now communicate. Do not take me on dates, weight loss has literally changed my life in every possible way in this arena. No, that is not right. I know this helped a lot, but loving myself and kindness helped me more. I just wouldn’t get to that degree of love without losing weight.
The most common question I get is: “Sisi, how did you do this ?!”
I don’t think how I did it, it is so important how and why. By this, I mean only that I can tell you how I limit myself to 1,500 calories per day and concentrate on reaching the maximum possible amount of protein of 130 grams within this window of 1,500 calories. We can talk about how I wake up at 4 in the morning to go to the gym, to lift weights and to jog. I can give you all the time # 1 to go for the recipe for Taco Turkey Protein Blast, as I call it. But all this doesn’t matter if you don’t have a solid WHY! I can’t give it to someone, I would like to, but it should happen in YOU. As for me, I ate less and did more things, because I damn hated myself, and the cruel, honest truth is that I (and I am so grateful for this part) did not have the constitution necessary to just make completely red a picture of Bob Ross on the wall of my bedroom with my head. I thought a lot about this, but I myself had to conclude that if I hate my life so much that I want to die, but I'm too scared to die, then I have to do and become better. I hit Rock Bottom, and with Dwayne Johnson it wasn’t so much fun. Therefore, in May 2019, I decided that something should change. This is not life. So I started slowly, step by step – literally, on foot. First 1 mile a day, then 2, 3, and I got to where I walked 4-5 miles every day. By July, was I like 320ish? Maybe less! Fat just melts when there is a lot of it. I felt that at that moment I could go to the gym, and I did it. I was tired on the treadmill or elliptical or hit my last representative in the set and started to get tired. I would think: "I'm so tired now, I just want to stop." but then I remembered in high school when I invited a girl to the gym to challenge everyone, and she said: “Oh, no, you're too fat.”
I would have thought that a stranger would feel comfortable calling me "Big Man / Big Boy / Big Boss" or any option with a "Big" in front.
I would like to remind myself that at that moment I did not feel anything – exhaustion, some kind of soreness … None of this can compare with the pain that I experienced, living so terribly lonely in my father's basement.
Then I discovered Joe Rogan's podcast and what he said made sense. Exercise and a healthy diet are not punishment. This is not a routine. I make me and my future – he, dude, by the way – a favor! I wake up in front of Jesus, and while the crazy in Vegas begin to zombie shuffle the streets to train, because I LOVE myself and know that I am doing kindness to myself. I know that in 3 or 6 months or in a year I will be so happy that I did it. I have never in my life ever regretted going to the gym, but I regretted that EVERY ONCE I relaxed and did not go.
If you are just starting your journey or thinking, I sincerely hope that you hope and experience positive changes for yourself. I can sit in my office chair with crossed apple sauce, I can bend myself with one hand, I’m not afraid and don’t attack the dubious constructive integrity of cheap chairs. I have a FREE BOARD now. Thought I couldn't grow my whole life and got stuck with a shitty, spotty, thin beard. It was just a matter of real estate! Less face, more beard. The problem is resolved. I used to think that I have a small member. Nah man! I was so fat and voracious that my body tried to eat its own sausage. Call me superficial, but so that my beard is completely connected and, finally, get rid of this pelvic bag of fat, here are some of my main motivators, so that I continue in the same spirit. It can pretty much guarantee that you will experience the same! I sincerely hope that you can read this and feel inspired to lose weight, really, really. I know the pain of life without self-confidence and self-love. Losing weight will not cure all this, but it will definitely set you up so that you can develop as for yourself.
Thus, you must determine WHY, and from there find what the shelf works for you and the diet works. I promise you HOW you do this, it will be of much less importance than WHY. Your WHY will be the anchor of all this. Your WHY will inform and influence how you continue to work with HOW, and will be what makes you experiment with different HOWS until you find your own version that works. I could write about it for hours, but I am definitely at the TL point; DR. I will stay here.
DID YOU RECEIVE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
