It's time to shed those pounds!


Labels: , , , , , , ,

I've always been overweight, even as a child, and I'm still struggling with it heavily (no pun intended) as an adult. Back in September, my grandmother (mom's mom) passed away. After she passed, I fell into the worst depression I have ever experience in my 25 short years. During this depression, I did nothing but eat and sleep. I think I gained (easily) 50 lbs, if not more. This past weekend, my mom got remarried, and though my depression has virtually disappeared now over the past month or so, I still managed to get upset when I looked back on wedding photos I was in...

I look awful. There's not a single picture I can look at and say, "Wow. I look amazing!", and that hurts because.. this was mom's wedding!

Everybody's always telling me, "Who cares about some stupid photo? You're beautiful!" Yes, this is true. I know I am a good person.. but I don't feel beautiful. When I was trying on outfits for the wedding, I kept looking at my naked body in the mirror and thinking... what have I done to myself?

It's time for a change. I want to start a healthy eating regimen- perhaps even get back on Weight Watchers. I've done it before, and it worked great for me, so long as I stuck to it.

Anybody else feeling the same way? Anybody ever been in my position and been able to turn themselves around? I'm not looking to be a size 2 or anything, but I do want to be healthy. Like in the first picture.. my sister looks incredible. I wouldn't mind looking like that. I just want to be healthy.

Any tips or suggestions you may have are very much welcomed.

    About Me

    My photo
    I'm rather shy at first, but once you get to know me I'm a pretty open person. I'm honest and don't believe in lying. I'm a dedicated, loyal and hard working individual, and I am just as dedicated and loyal to be lazy! haha I am also a very dedicated and loyal friend; I would do anything for my friends. I wouldn't exactly call myself an optimist, but I do try to look on the bright side of things rather than dwell on the dark side- such as things you have no control over and can't change. I'm also very independent. I prefer a night in with my cat to a night at the bar. It's not that I don't enjoy my friends' company, I'm just not a publicly social person.

    About Blog Soup...

    Blog Soup is my own personal blog, very much similar to a 'work at home mom' blog. The only difference is, I'm not a mom, haha. I enjoy meeting and exchanging information with new people.. one of the many reasons I decided to start this blog. I wanted to be able to share my life with the world. Some of the things you can expect to see on blog soup are product reviews, website reviews, tips on getting the most out of your money, freebies and daily cash giveaways- my way of saying 'Thank You!' for being a loyal subscriber.
