BELIEVE! It's possible :)

Monday, September 06, 2010

When I came to SP in June I was desperate and so very unhappy with myself. I had no support which was my own fault, I just couldn't stick with the commitment of dropping the weight. And I really couldn't expect support if "I" wasn't going to follow through...right? Afraid of failure, I couldn't even try. In May 09 we went to the wedding of my husbands nephew. I had to shop for a new outfit and was horrified to come home with a size 14 pants! (I'm just 5' tall) I cried myself to sleep for 3 nights. I vowed to never go to another wedding fat. In Dec. 09 his niece announces she is getting married in Sept. 10. Wonderful news right? Wrong...I'm still fat!
I'm fairly private so the thought of facing others, even in the same situation, terrified me. So I started to search the internet in the hopes of finding help. And I came across SP and was pleased there was no fee. I mean, why should someone be making money from my weight loss! I got so excited with everything SP offered me, I joined right away! With SP I have learned how I should be eating and exercising. I've met wonderful people who have never judged me. I have gotten great support and helpful hints. I HAVE FOUND FRIENDS! I am so very pleased to say this community has been a big help in getting me down 20lbs. so far. I'm not going to make my goal date, but you know what...it's ok cause I'm almost there and I know it will happen!
I feel amazing! Soon I'll be 51 and I think I look pretty *&_%# good! I know now my weight won't drag me down the hill I'm about to be looking over. I'm going to be able to enjoy life so much better now!
So to all the new members out there, if I can do it...YOU CAN DO IT!!! Never give up, even when the loss gets slow, even if you're having a bad day, you can count on all the friends here for help and support. NEVER GIVE UP! It is so worth the effort. Yes, I can say this even though I've not met my goal, because I believe it, I feel it! BELIEVE..BELIEVE..BELIEVE!
