Having spent several months in this submarine, seeing the successes of other people, I decided that it was time to try. The point is not that I tried and failed before, I never really tried, I always had reason to wait for the next month, after graduation, new work, etc.
March of this year, I finally decided it was time to try. I was obese from elementary school and did not know where to start. I started with the only thing that I know would help, is better.
I stopped eating fast food, stopped pouring a lot of oil on everything, stopped eating a bag of chips, because why not.
For 3 months, I usually had a bagel with cream cheese for breakfast, a subway wrap for lunch, and chicken and vegetables for dinner. Now it was not the most delicious food, and hell, if it was not tough from time to time, but I could stick to it. March 5 – June 5, I switched from 310 to 275, doing just that.
At the moment I could not believe that I lost 35 pounds only from a healthy diet. It's time to find out what happened if I did. I changed the bagel to an apple and yogurt and started walking 2k / day. This is the first 2k. My God, it hurt. I went home and honestly took a nap. From just walking 2k.
For the next 3 months, I continued to walk and eat apple, yoghurt, wrapper, and chicken / vegetables. June 5 – September 5, I went from 275 to 220.
All this time I continued to walk, just walked on when I could. For a short time I was up to 5k. Sometimes I stumbled, but it was ok. I did not have specific goals, I did not have a specific goal. I've tried. I did not go for a walk? This is normal, there is always tomorrow. Did I have a couple of pieces of pizza at the end of Friday? This is normal, I registered it and moved on Saturday.
September 5 – December 5. Progress slowed significantly, but it was there. I ran my first 5 KB (just under 30 minutes!) In October. But most importantly, I achieved my goal. I did not know it. But at 190 I feel comfortable in my skin. I never set a number, I just wanted to lose weight until I was fat anymore. It turns out, I think it is 190, and here we are.
I officially changed my goal from losing weight to maintaining. Time to go to the gym.
Please, if you did not dare to try for the first time or wanted to return to this horse, just do it! It is normal to retreat, it is normal that not reach the goal, the only thing that is not in order is not to try for fear of failure. I could not try for years, and I have no greater regret.
Thanks again, p / loss!
