Pre-Christmas Pep Talk

I have been making a lot of changes to my life as of late. As a result I haven’t had much time to pop on here to post. I do miss all of you and thank you for reading this post <3.

In the passed few weeks I have decided to reboot my efforts in weight loss. I know the holidays are just around the corner.. and I Know it’s going to SUCK. But I also know that if I don’t work at this, I may not live to see another Christmas. I don’t want to die. And I really do want to feel comfortable in my own body once more.

If this most recent effort doesn’t show some sort of results I will be considering gastric bypass surgery. It is a last resort, but one that may be necessary. I seem to have nailed down how to “maintain” my weight, but I haven’t been able to loose anything in weeks… no make that months. It’s frustrating and painful to admit in a public venue.. but I must admit it, if I am going to acknowledge and move on.

This most recent push for weight loss will come with an altered food diet, and me becoming more active. Everything I have tried to date only ends up hurting me (i.e I tried skip rope which I LOVE… but I’m too heavy and I could barely walk for about 2 weeks after as I hurt my ankles.. I tried stairs, but my ankles kept giving out and I’d almost fall down… Yep ladies and gents. I am THAT fat.. that stairs and regular easy tasks are extremely hard and frightening for me).. So I have consulted with an amazing person online who is going to help me tailor my diet, as well as help to keep me motivated to succeed. Sort of like a food Life coach. He’s been in my boat before and has had amazing results. Though the road ahead terrifies me, I’m going to do my best.

Much Love to you ALL <3

  • Shannon,
    I think it’s great you are rebooting your efforts to lose weight. I am also starting to get into shape. I think it is very important to tailor your food because that is the hardest thing to stick to, once you cut out some of the bad foods and switch to healthier options, you will want to exercise. Maybe start easy with just going on walks around the block and once your energy picks up then keep increasing the distance. I know it will take awhile, but you will see results again. Good luck. I am also going to try my best. I really want to lose weight and feel better about myself. Take care.

  • You can do it baby, I believe in you.
