Back when I started this journey I was only able to do 5 mins at a time on the elliptical (This is what I have at home). Every couple of days I'd bring up my time up in small Increments usually 1 min at a time. Here is where I'm becoming open about my weight.. When I started my Journey On September 29th 2011 I Weighed in at 374lbs.. I know I know.. WOW, Being NEARLY 400lbs, Exercise of any sort was a struggle.. It was beginning to get to the point where even walking was becoming a bother, I couldn't go to the mall, I couldn't go on family outings I couldn't do anything because I would be tired within the first few minutes. I'd make whatever excuse I could to pass these things up because I knew I simply
couldn't did not want to do it.
Walking up the stairs, Ouff.. Lets not even talk about walking up the stairs, I'd Nearly die out of breath
So all these challenges I had 51.3lbs ago, No Longer Exist.. Yes I'm still heavy, But now I can go to the mall and walk for hours and hours, Now i can go for walk in the park and go outside and enjoy my time with family & Friends.. Tonight I Pushed my Self to the Limit & was able to do 60 consecutive minutes of cardio at the gym My Last Weight in was 324lbs.. Again Still heavy but able to do so much more then I could of months ago. How do I feel, I feel great. All of the "OLD" Issues.. are no longer here.. & That is what gives me the motivation to keep pushing my self daily. To keep going for the Gold....
I guess the Moral to this little Update is simply that tonight after i accomplished my first 60min full cardio work out, I realized that I can do anything i set my mind to, I knew this before but I think It really made me realize how far i'v come and how much work I have put into this weight loss journey.
So there you have it :) You guys finally know my true weight.. Which again at my last weigh in was 324LBS.. I'm excited to see the day I hit 200's Again I don't care if its 299.. I can't wait! For Some this might not mean much but to mean its an huge accomplishment!
This post alone is a huge accomplishment finally reviling my weight my real struggles.. Being nearly 400lbs and coming this far, There are no words to describe the "Victory" Feeling I have.. I know I have a long way to go.. But I don't care how long it takes me to get there I will get there. I will fight this, I will have that "Inspiring Success story".
Lots of love.
