I always read about people losing weight on here etc and writing a diary. Until now I have never had the courage to write about my weight problem with letting the world know.
But I want to say that if any of you who are on my list are offended by lets face it a fat person letting you know about her life then please delete me. However if you are one of the very billion of people who wants to know you are not alone with loosing weight then please feel free to follow me.
I look to tumblr for inspiration on a daily basis and I want my story to be an inspiration to someone even if that is just one person in the whole world.
I will be letting you know about my ups and downs throughout my journey to loosing weight, also what I eat most days. I do not suggest any of you follow what I eat unless you have some guidance from a medical practice. I have to be honest now I do not have permission from my doctor for the diet I am doing. But let me explain..
The diet I am doing is a diet that was asked of me before weight loss surgery that I was recommended for. I haven’t had the surgery, but I am attempting this diet and after seeing a dietician it will be changed. The diet as to be one of the hardest things I have and will be doing but I know in the end it will all be for a good cause. I have never been excited to loose weight before but I have so many reasons why I need it doing.
1: Just 2 days ago I got told by a doctor I am too big for another surgery that I desperately need. Let me just say this was a shock to me I knew I was big but I never knew that I could be too big to have a surgery. In this session with him he told me I had to loose weight, 2 stone to be precise in 6 months. Not for him but for me. I want to prove this doctor wrong and show him I can do this. But I want to prove to my self I can do this as well.
2: Heart disease runs in my family, and I am perfectly honest I want to reduce this as much as I can for the future.
3: When I have children I want to be able to run around with them for hours and not be getting out of breath, a little secret.. I already get ran out of breath just walking up the stairs. Once where I could run up the stairs I now CAN NOT!
There are more reasons and I am being honest none of these are to be like others and where what I like. I am very comfortable in the clothes I wear. But it would be nice to look at people and not have them thinking I look like a monster. Alot of people look at me like I am and I hate this feeling.
There is no better feeling than knowing you can achieve something in your life and this is definitely something I want to be proud of. I want to have that picture of me now in 20 years time and be like LOU YOUR DIFFERENT NOW. But if you are in the same shoes as me and you are about to give up remember YOU ARE WORTH IT.
I am lucky to have people around me supporting me, but if you don’t have that or want more people to support you, we can do this, together…
