I have lost over 64 lbs in the last year and a half, I have been overweight my whole life,I started doing diets since I was 14 yrs old by 27 I had already made my mind that I was going to be that way my whole life, didn't have motivation to work out I just lived one day at a time.
I heard my fiends and relatives you just have to eat right, you know fresh and nutritious food, and I will do it and the fall off the wagon (who hasn't), but my problem was that I did diets 1 2 months and then I was back to not paying attention to what I ate.
I needed help!!! when the doctor put me in anti depressants that was the worst part, no I was even more unmotivated didn't have even strength to clean my house. My relationship with my SO was trashed.
Well, the help I needed found me, it gave me the kickstart that I needed, I learned how to eat healthy, what does my body need to loose the weight, but above all I understood that it's not a about diets,it's about life style changes.
I have more energy, my depression is gone (weight related I learned), I exercise every day which I had never been a sporty person like I used to call them. But whats most important is that I am teaching my kids healthier, that in itself is half the battle won.
So yes, it's all about making better choices but sometimes you do need that little kick or push to get you going. What was yours?
