I am really happy with the progress I have made to get slim and to get the weight off. I have been exercising Since last Tuesday March 13, 2012 and this is the 2nd week I have gone into my workout and I have learned to have portion control when I am eating and in moderation, I am drinking a lot more water, I am feeling so great after a nice walk around my area. Each day I am taking different routes so that it won’t become so boring seeing the same scenery over and over. The burn pain is excruciating and it might take several weeks until that burn pain diminishes, but I am going to beat it, I am going to fight it. It feels extremely great when I wake up in the morning and see my body in the mirror. I already see a difference. Not a huge one yet because I just started, but wow, I can see it happening and I am not going to give up. I have so many supporters and so many people who are encouraging me to do it and that power and the strength from others really helps me to do it. I thank you all for the courage and confidence you all gave me. I have a smile on my face every morning. This morning I saw myself in the mirror and I must say I am doing a great job for myself and my health. This is an incredible feeling. Pretty soon my whole wardrobe needs to change and pretty soon I got to hit the malls to shop shop shop for clothes and shoes because I think your shoe size changes slightly. I am beginning to feel my waist and tummy going down and I have these black pants that I wear and I feel it loose already, not a whole lot, but it’s getting there.
I still have not weighed, myself yet, but I feel like I don’t have to because I really feel it and I really love the way I look already. How I feel and how I look is very important to me. I am so excited to go shopping and fit into clothes and dresses without hesitation, without having to be embarrassed in front of people. Like once I was a bridesmaid for a good friend of mine and we tried on over 30 different dresses and none of them really suited me and my weight. I was so embarrassed about it and I said Oh my I have to do something. This is ridiculous. The humiliation from my face was so visible and I said to myself, I am going to lose this weight and now I am on my way. I tried on the most beautiful dresses, but none of the suited me, until we saw one and that one was beautiful too, but there was 2 or 3 of the dresses I had tried on that I really loved but could not wear. I am going to fight my battle with weight and I am determined to find those dresses and will buy those dresses and wear them. I remember when I went into a store with my mom and this sales lady that saw us when we were trying bridesmaids dresses for my good friend said, Hey I remember you came here with your friends about the bridesmaids dress and she said I did not want to say anything to you in front of your friends and especially the bride, but she said that you are a beautiful girl and you are such a lovely person, she said that you are throwing your great looks by your body and because I care about you, I want what is best for you, and she said that when you lose weight and lose the pounds, she said next time you come to my store and I am here, I will give you 50% discount off of any dress you like and I will give you another gift, she said all you need to do is lose the weight and you come back here and you will be rewarded by all the hard work. She said it will take sometime but she said do it.
I am very excited! Bye bye fat! Hello gorgeous body 🙂
GOOD work Talin I know the feeling, you are on the right path, I too am walking and losing few unwanted calories:) time to shape up a little and feel great.
I like that you are not weighing yourself. I know when I am trying to drop pounds I can become obsessed with a number instead of realizing I am still fitting into the pants, I may have just had too much salt or something… Ya know? COngrats on looking healthy and feeling great! I wish you continued success 🙂
Good luck to you, it sounds like you don’t need it- you’re doing so great!
Good for you! I’m on week 9 of my new workout regime. The exercise has done wonders for my mood and my strength. I just need to work on the food side of things. 😉
Keep up the good work and you will continue to see results! Exercise, food moderation and the water drinking is key! Yay!
Best of luck to you! Keep up the positive attitude. I think that’s one of the best parts of taking care of ourselves – feeling great! Knowing that we’re doing what we need to care for our bodies and our spirits. There will be discouraging days, but know that you are worth the time and effort you’re putting in to caring for yourself.
With a will as strong as yours, and determination to achieve your goal, I’m sure you’ll reap your rewards in the future and feel absolutely happy about it. Keep up the good work. Good luck! 😀
Good for you Talin! It does feel great to fit into smaller clothes and you seem to be very happy with your progress so far. Keep it up and you will be rewarded in so many ways. You deserve to be happy with how you look and feel. I hope for you to need a whole new wardrobe.
Keep at it and don’t give up! 🙂
So proud of you! It is so hard, but worth it. I have started going to the gym after trying to do P90x. P90x is a good program, but I need to work out with other people to stay motivated. Today will be day 3 at the gym, go me, go me! Go Talin!
Good work! It’s wonderful to work hard and then feel the great results from that work. My best wishes to you. With your attitude, you are sure to reach your goals.
Big congratulations to you. You should be proud of yourself. You seem to have the right attitude for it, and I am sure that you will loose it all in no time flat.
Good for you and good luck!
Good for you, keep it up , just remember do not over do the exercise, never skimp on you warm up exercises to avoid injury! Eat properly and healthily and try to eat slowly and chew your food!! Lecture over!! Go girl go!!
That’s the way to go, Talin. I admire your spirit and perseverance. Keep up the good work.
Good luck, don’t rush it. Take it easy and if you have a bad day, don’t give up. Sounds like you are doing great!
Way to go! I am on my fourth week and I hope I can soon find the optimism and strength you have. I love your determination.
