I Am So Happy! I Can Yell From The Rooftops On How Happy I Am!

I cannot even begin to describe how great I feel and have been feeling. This whole new world of exercise, eating well and losing weight has put a huge smile on my face and the motivation is so contagious, that I got it in an instant. I am just so ecstatic and satisfied with everything that is happening. I have a lot more energy throughout the day, My treadmill and outside walks are getting so much easier since I will be getting into my 4th week next week. I cannot believe it has already been four weeks since my exercise has started and feel so great. My body muscles are getting tight, i feel like my thighs and legs have gone down quite significantly. All I can say is I can yell from the rooftops and announce it to the world on how great I am feeling, so much more positivity, and so much more outlooks on life and just walking through the mall and saying I am going to wear that dress and I am going to make it a goal for me to do it. Who says exercise and eating well is easy? It is hard at first and it is a new experience and challenge, but I believe that anything can be achieved with hard work and determination to what you want in your life. If you want that nice body and the great health benefits that come with it, then I say go for it. If it is something that is going to benefit you in the long run and in the future, then do it. You are your own person and you have to make these changes for yourself and for the people you care deeply about. It is tough at first, but trust in me, it will get easier, the results will come soon after and everything will fall into place in where you want it. If you want something bad enough and if you are determined to change your lifestyle, then you will do it and you will feel so much better about yourself once your accomplish your goals that you set. If you say your going to lose 60 pounds or if your going to lose that 100 pounds or whatever the case maybe, and write down your goals and check them off as your accomplish them, you will see a big difference on your life and you will be rewarded with great health and so much more. If you want it you must go after it. Enough said, but it the willingness to do it and the will power to not give up. Remember Rome wasn’t built in a day.

Once you get into shape and eat well at the same time and find your balance in diet and exercise, with portion sizes, and fresh produce and meats that are not processed and staying away from processed foods, you will see the big difference. did you know cutting out sugar from coffee and tea, cutting out soft drinks, cutting out ketchup/relish condiments in your burger or fries, sodium, mayonnaise, fatty dips, chips, cookies, vegetable/corn oils, and replacing these with  a more healthier approach, you can lose weight by just cutting these things.

My mood is ever so good. I am the happiest woman right now and I am so enthusiastic and serious about my workouts. I am having fun doing it. I listen to my MP3 Player, I watch TV while on treadmill. Everything. Occupy yourself with something in the beginning because I know you may think being on the treadmill or exercise feels long, and it will feel like that in the beginning, and then once you get in the swing of things and when you get used to it, you wont even feel the time going by. SO DO IT, BE HAPPY LIKE ME. IF I can do it. YOU CAN DO IT! YES I CAN!

Looked In The Mirror This Morning, Liked What I Saw

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 🙂

I Have The Will Power & Motivation to Get Fit!

In My life this constant struggle of mine to get fit and lose my weight has really been a difficult process. I have always began to exercise for a period of 3 weeks to 3 months and then after that I stop. the first 2-3 months my legs would hurt from the excruciating burn pain behind my calves in my lower legs. It was the worst pain I had ever encountered. I mean I could walk no problem and I have no bone pains or pains in the joints or anything of that sort, but whats stopping me from continuing is the burn pain and I would cry because of it. I know that when that happens its working and my body is getting fit and getting rid of all that pain, but sometimes its so bad that I just quit. I know that is the wrong approach to deal with it as it makes it worse for next time, but this time I am so determined to do so to do it for myself and to do it for my own health and wellness. I have so many travels coming up this year and I want to be able to walk for hours, enjoy without getting tired, getting fit and just not worrying about a place to sit when I can enjoy my travels a lot more.

Since this past Tuesday, I started my exercise, and I started walking outside for an hour or 2 just walking and when the weather is bad I use my treadmill, so on the treadmill for the first 2 weeks I will do 20 minutes, then every week I will add 5 minutes more until I get up to 45 Minutes. I do not want to over tire myself in the beginning and just take my time doing so. The treadmill is such a great workout tool as it helps your whole body to get fit, not just one particular part of the body. I also have a bicycle that I can ride around my area and just go for half an hour. that is not until I get used to my walking and lose about 20-30 pounds in the beginning. My ideal weight that I want to be around is 135 to 140. I do not want to be too too slim either. Just right. After my body gets used to it, I will be signing up for Yoga as soon as my breathing and my workouts get easier and I get more flexible. I will try it with the treadmill then work my way up to all the other fancy stuff as now my body cannot take it.

This time I have the motivation and will power and I will not stop to get myself fit and be on my way to a new me, new wardrobe where I can fit in nice and beautiful dresses, where I can wear bikini’s, where I can be free and walk without getting tired fast, enjoy my new body and my new life, and feel great, more positive. When I look for work or when I get ahead in all this, the employer will see how well I take care of myself and that is another reason why. The employer will see how well you take care of yourself and that gives them a sense of security to think that when she can take care of her body and herself, that means she can take care of my company that I will hire her in. I thought of that of the reason why they might hire me or not hire me. I don’t know thats what my thoughts were on it. I will not give up and I will not be lazy and stop after 2-3 months. I will do my best everyday and not miss a day. I promise you my blog readers, my family, my friends, and everyone who has always advised me to get slim and get healthy. I know I am not doing this for everyone else, I am doing this for myself, but I will make this promise and I will not break it. As proof I will be taking photos of myself of the progress I have made and I will be posting in my blog on my journey to getting fit and I will be posting it on a bi-weekly basis or once a month. You will see the new me and you will see how incredible I will feel.

I will feel much better about myself and I will feel like I am in control which I will be. I know it will be a tough road ahead with watching what I eat and exercising and it is hard work and it takes a lot of patience, but I am up for the challenge and I am up for everything that is involved. Scouts honour to everyone. Here is to a road to success. 🙂
