Aging and Weight Loss
I know how it feels to be fat and rejected. Not long ago, I used to weigh 320 pounds. I am now 180 pounds and still losing.
I was a normal healthy child, fond of eating, but always remained active and slim. After I got married, I had three kids in six years, each one a cesarean delivery.
The fat just went on piling till I couldn’t even recognize myself in the mirror; I was obese. Naturally, I went into severe depression and totally stopped looking after myself. This in turn encouraged me to eat more, indulge my sorrows in sugary treats, and thus the weight kept growing. Aging wasn't fun.
By this time, I had a strong feeling that my husband was having an affair and I was desperate for attention and love. I decided that I must do something. So, I made a plan. I gave myself one year in order to lose 150 pounds.
I changed my lifestyle, threw out all fatty and sugary food from the cupboards, made an effort to walk everyday and weighed myself every week. Slowly but surely, the inches began to melt. I started to gain back my confidence and also became more motivated to remain on the program and los weight. My will power was strong and nothing could lure me away from my weight loss mission.
When the year came to an end, I weighed myself and I had not lost 150 pounds but slightly more than that. I was overjoyed and ecstatic at my accomplishment.
My breathlessness vanished, I was more energetic and of course, much more confident in life. I realized that I was carrying all that weight around for nothing. I didn’t really need it.
I now love shopping for my clothes, buying matching accessories and socializing. I no longer shy away from large crowds or deliberately ignore an old friend in a shopping mall. I feel like a brand new person, inside and out.
That's my anti-aging secret!
