When I was at my biggest, at 490lbs I gave every excuse in the world as to why I could not change. Even while being a prediabetic, with high cholesterol, high blood pressure, back & joint problems and sleep apnea I didn't change. But It comes down to you. Nobody can want it for you more than you want it for yourself. I had to get up and show up for MYSELF on the days that was the absolute hardest. Being 490lbs and trying to workout on my own is no joke. Making those healthy eating choices on my OWN took master discipline. Day in and day out. Changing bad eating habits like ordering out fast food every day and eating at 10-11:00 at night was something I had to change and it wasn't easy😭 shit is hard but it is POSSIBLE. I remember not ever going out. Not only because I was too embarrassed of how big I let myself get but because I physically wasn't able to walk longer than 10 minutes without losing my breath and needing to sit down. Having leg cramps even in the car, not fitting in train turnstiles, they would then have to open the gate for me to go through as if I was some large farm animal😒 not fitting in restaurant seats and booths, the waiters would have to sit me over to the chairs and tables where you could pull them apart from each other. I couldn't fit in the public bathroom stalls. I had to go in the handicapped bathroom where its extra wide for people with wheelchairs. I had extreme social anxiety and rarely left the house because of it. Fast forward to no longer a pre diabetic. No high blood pressure or high cholesterol. No longer suffering with sleep apnea. No longer struggling with walking longer than 10 minutes. Able to use the regular bathroom stalls in public. And now dressing up cute to go out to a concert? YES. No longer afraid. No more anxiety. With way more energy, more self love, more fearlessness. And I'm still a big girl mind you. Just a now confident big girl, bettering herself each day and ready to take on anything and everything! Keep going babes is all I'm saying❤️❤️❤️ every single effort counts. And if you had a rough day? SO WHAT. Pick up and finish where you left off.
