And if you eat/burn 200 calories under your expenditure everyday for 6 months, you lose 10 pounds.
To put this in perspective, that’s just one less soda a day.
Gives you something to think about.
I had a few low points that stick out to me.
1) I was shopping with my mom and I just started crying because I couldn’t find anything that would fit. I was 17 years old and wearing a size 24. All I could shop at were plus sized clothing stores and they didn’t make many plus size teen clothes. So I was crushed and just felt so sad that day. I never felt ugly, but I was just so tired of not feeling like “myself.” My mom and I joined weight watchers a couple days after that.
2) it was my second attempt at weight watchers. After I weighed-in and sat through the meeting. I broke down in the car sitting with my mom. Not only had I gained back all the weight I had I previously lost, I had gained back more weight! I was now 256 pounds and I felt so crushed and like I had let my parents down. They were devoting so much time and effort towards helping me and I was just sabotaging myself.
Those are my two low moments.
I started my journey twice. The second time I decided I was no longer going to look back. And I didn’t care how long it took. Any amount of step in the right direction is a step in the right direction.
Don’t get hung on up on the starting. Just go. And decide that here on out you will start to make a conscious effort to reach your goals.
