My Weight Loss Story
by Kailie George
Before i started counting my calories I was always so angry with myself because of how much i weighed. I would look at myself in the mirror and just be disgusted.
My daughter always gave me support and she offered to walk and work out with me but after work ( 7:30 am - 4:30 pm ) and sometimes my second job ( 5:00 - 7:30 every monday and wednesday ) I was just exhausted. I never had the energy to work out after these work days.
I am a single mother with two children. I have to work 2 jobs to pay the bills and get food. I always semeed like i was running to the supermarket to buy food. I got fed up.
I told myself on tuesday, thursday, and fridays I would work out every day for 45 minutes - 1 hour. then I still had my weekend to relax. Sometimes after work i just felt like doing nothing but my daughter gave me support and didnt take no for an answer. She told me if I wanted to loose the weight I had to stop always putting it off and just do it.
After a couple of weeks I started to feel different. I didn't loose that much weight but I still lost some. and I changed my food habits too. After a month I had lost 15 pounds. and let me tell you I do not lose weight easily. I retain all my salts and water so it is like impossible to loose weight quickly.
After that month I started to work out more than 3 times a week. I would work out on weekends and take more walks around the neightbourhood. By the end of the 3 month, I had lost 37 pounds. My goal is 50. I have 2 more months to go and I should be at my goal.
All you need is a little support and just DO IT!!! If you make the time and just commit to it you will change your life. once you do it on a regular basis it will be part of your regular schedule. Believe in yourself because you can! thank you for reading my story.
Way to go Kailie! Thanks for sharing that story. I am sure it will motivate many of us to get up and get going.
