I’ve always “yo-yo” around with my weight, at my fittest I was always “bigger” than most girls but it never bothered me. I felt good, I was healthy so size was just size to me. I get to the point where I’m rockin an Xl and I still felt good. The last few years, that’s spiraled down to rock bottom. Since I’ve packed on my freshman 15, I lost control over my weight and ive hit rock bottom. I got to the point of convincing myself that I still looked good even as I climb through the dress sizes…but then I knew I was letting myself go and that idea made me sick to my stomach. I needed to regain that control over my life, that its my body and only I can do something about it to make some changes and see results.
This years Easter morning at church, was a normal Easter morning, we were taking pictures as usual and someone commented and said ” man, you’ve gained sooo much weight” that was heart wrenching, I never wanted to hear it, but that was Gods way of pushing me over the edge to realize what I’ve become and slapped me with the reality of “is this what you want for your future?” Gods intervention couldn’t be anymore clearer, as Kristia messaged me on fb that night and began talking about regaining control back. My weight, my lifestyle, my eating habit, all of it. How did she know? I honestly have no idea, but that was a clear message to me that it was time to step up and do something about my weight.
I’ve followed Gods lead since, taking the plunge at the first step of being healthy. I’ve started with the beach body program and really dedicating myself to overhaul my image, from inside and out. The way I looked, all the way to feeling good and knowing my investment now will pay off in the future when I’m healthy and live a long life with my future family, and my current friends and family. First 2 weeks, i had so much success! Lost 13 lbs, 10 inches all over!!! Now, I’m on my third week already struggling, but pressing on with accountability and support from Kristia/noexcuses challengeteam, friends and fam, and mostly my God who strengthens me day by day. This is my journey back to healthy, see you all at the top!
