This Plus-Sized mom made one decision that changed the course of her life forever.
At 300 lbs, I wasn’t feeling good about myself.
I was pre-diabetic, uncomfortable, heavy and unhappy. Really, I was unhappy. Actually, I was sad. I didn’t like myself. At the time, I had 3 kids, no money really – and I didn’t know what to do to change. I was going to the gym at the time, but the weight was not coming off.
I had lost weight prior with weight watchers, but soon gained it all back. I didn’t really know if anything would work.
There had to be another way.
I knew it was going to be difficult, but I was hypertensive and pre-diabetic – and I needed to make it all stop. I didn’t want to end up like my parents – there had to be a better way to live.
When I was approached about doing the 21 Day Fix, I came up with a number of excuses. I didn’t have the money – which was true. I didn’t. Homeschooling doesn’t really pay, does it? I didn’t have the time – which I didn’t. A baby, homeschooling, breastfeeding, pumping, activities, meals, blogging, laundry and on and on and on.
I didn’t have the time.
I didn’t have the energy. I was 300 lbs, eating poorly – of course I didn’t have the energy. That’s not surprising.
Guess what? When I thought about it, either it was going to be a life of diabetes and heart disease or I was going to figure out the money, the time and the energy – guess what was most important to me?
I used a gift card that I received in Christmas 2013 from my sister – and it changed my life completely.
Yeah, it was really hard getting started. Working out at 300 lbs – it’s no joke. I hardly made it through the jumping jacks (in the warmup. I had never done a burpee or a plank. It was all new.
But I kept at it. I weathered the storms. I checked in with my accountability groups – although there was nobody like me in them. They were all skinny ladies looking to get ripped – but that was okay. They supported me.
Quickly, I became more energetic and determined.
A few weeks ago, I was able to walk into a Nike store and try on clothes at Nike – that fit!
Do you know how HUGE that was for me? The anticipation of whether I would even fit into normal size clothes was almost enough to keep me from going. But I did it. I fit into normal clothes from a normal store!
It feels AMAZING!
I got stronger and I got leaner
Do you think I would have ever gotten this far, if I hadn’t had started?
No. You have to say yes! Say yes to a new life.
I am not there yet. I still have a ways to go.
Probably about 70 lbs more or so.
But I look forward to the hard work, the sacrifice, and the new body and life to come. I welcome every single minute of it. Why? Because I know it’s so worth it.
