The title sums it all up, my weight gain and the pain associated with it is your gain. I share photos of my progress not to be vain or look at me and what I've done but to share just exactly how far I've come. Fitness has no finish line, and I've learned a lot over the years of up and down weight control along with the emotions that run with it. For every person who thinks its about me there are 10 or more who are struggling in silence with the pain of being overweight, giving up hope of ever being the healthy, vibrant person they once were.
At a point in my life where I hit 356 pounds I FINALLY BECAME DISGUSTED WITH MYSELF!
, the outward personality wouldn't let the unhappiness show, however inside I struggled. Struggled with bitterness, confidence, and more, the bitterness led to stress, sarcasm and perpetual search for happiness. Some seek happiness in alcohol or drugs, others find it in food. Food, that was my escape,joy, happiness, whatever you want to call it! It was when renewing my Faith I found happiness, happiness in my heart and when the heart, was happy it is only natural the rest of me would follow. Without a healthy body to go with a happy heart, I could not possibly do all I am capable of to Glorify God. In closing, I would just like to reiterate, it's not about me when I share progress, it's simply to inspire and encourage others who are struggling. I urge you to simply start, start anything just start! Start moving, walking, yoga, strength training or a combination of anything just start. Starting or starting over is the hardest part, however it is one of the best decisions you can ever make! Download a workout plan by clicking here and a bit more of my story
