My Chubby Evolution

                        People often say that motivation doesn’t last.  Well, neither does bathing.                    That’s why we recommend it daily.  – Zig Ziglar

Have you ever worked so hard for something in your life that always seems to be just outside your grasp?  I have.  For me it has been my 25-year struggle with weight loss. It seems like I have fought this battle time and time again, but the number on the scale just kept rising.  Failure after failure seemed to stack up and I was left feeling more and more defeated each time – until now.

Something has clicked. Something has changed.  Maybe I was scared of dying young, or being destined for a life in plus size clothes (nothing says fat camouflage like a flowered tent of a shirt).  Maybe I didn’t want to have to wonder if I would break every chair I sat in.  Or maybe I just got tired of being sick and tired.  Whatever it was, it was an emotional rock bottom.

I have been dancing around 350 pounds for years (386 was my highest recorded weight) and it has taken its toll physically and emotionally.  I recently made the decision to take charge of my life.  I vowed to make no excuses and take no detours.  I had to find a way to make this weight loss attempt different than all of my past attempts.

I am currently using the Weight Watchers Smart Point program – but I know that different programs work for different people.  Find what works for you and do it!  I will be cheering you on every step of the way!

So, welcome to my journey, my experiment in staying motivated and becoming the person I was created to be.  Just like Zigglar says in the quote above, motivation is a daily thing and we have to keep looking.

This can be your time too you know.  You landed on this page for a reason.  You are beautiful, and important, and worth spending time on.  You deserve to become who you were created to be!

The Evolution Continues,                                                                                                                  Lisa
