If I had a dime for every time I heard that I’d be rich!
Recently as I have been speaking to people about getting into better shape and about my own issues and such, there seems to be some common statements made… “I never saw you as big or fat” or my Favorite “You just carried your weight so well” I even had a good friend of 10 years say to me recently, “I’ve never known you any other way but then how you are now with your weight” I was like WHAT! LOL I have lost 35lbs in the last two years I cant possibly look the same! Now I know what they are saying and I really appreciate the sentiment but it has made me go back and look at some older pics from just 2 years ago and I think… No I didn’t hold my weight well and I was fat. Not morbidly obese but for sure fat. So then I started to reflect on the fact that I have always known people “Believed that I could lose a little” but overall accepted me for who I was weight wise… Great right!? People should judge you on whats inside not on how you look!!! But here was MY issue and it may not be yours… I allowed that to be almost an excuse to not work on getting fit, if the social circle I ran in accepted me then why work on it, I’d much rather EAT and be lazy hahaha At least so I thought and had convinced myself of… But the truth was always there in the back of my head and slapped me in the face in pictures or at the pool or beach parties. But the world I lived in was happy to except me and I was happy to fool myself out of the truth… until late at night when all are asleep and its just me and the truth, and I hated it and I ate to feel better. Well I face the truth now and have been for 2 years and I encourage you to do the same. If you know that you need to get into shape don’t wait like I did for so long in life, attack it now a little every day, start slow and work into a new life plan. I KNOW I KNOW its so easy now to sit on this side and speak about the problem, like a smoker who just quite or a born again Christian… you know the people who believe that because they did it you should too…. HAHAHAHA CRAP I may have become one of those with weight loss. Well I guess if your reading my blog your asking for it LOL. I promise I will never just walk up to you and tell you what to do food wise. 😉 and if you start talking to me about losing weight I will just say “I never saw you as fat” HAHAHAHA I wont say that either I promise.
always from love
