Dear Hollandlowe,
Rarely do I read the daily inspirations, but for some reason today, I read it and found your request for help to loose 80lbs. I read your note and I could totally relate because I have been there!!! Stop right now feeling ugly! Being overweight is not a defect in you or your personality, it is just something that you want to change. The reasons for that change have to be the right ones though and that is the trick. Three years ago I broke up with my boyfriend and at the time I was about 100lbs over my healthy weight. I was really at rock bottom and I didn't get there overnight, oh no, I worked at it for years. I decided right then and there that I wanted to find "Me" again. And it wasn't something that I could fix quickly. I thought the weight was the source of my problems but thru the next year I discovered that it was the "effect" in Cause and Effect. I had to learn to take care of myself, inside and out. I hate the word "diet" and I have never been on one I just started changing the way I lived. The first step I took was I started walking. First 1 mile then 2 and I built it up to 4 miles...5x a week. Then I started changing some of my eating habits. Absolutely no fast food or eating out!!! I switched things I liked to less fatty versions..Soy milk protein shakes, wheat bread no cheese lots of turkey, chicken and fruits vegatables. I cut out caffein for the most part and drank tons of water. When I was brave enough I joined a gym and I never looked back. I am happier now, not because I look better but because I deserve to be a healthy happy person, I earned it the hard way and on my own, my family did not do this for me, nor did a fad diet or diet pills, I learned to love myself and I am still working on it everyday. It took me a year to loose 80lbs. I would buy clothes that didn't yet fit me and I would work to get into them. I went from a size 22 to a size 8 and found out that I am a really hot chick!! But it doesn't matter how I look on the outside, good people are attracted to who I am on the inside, just as I was attracted to your letter. Enjoy who you are, life does not give us any promises, it is a lesson we must learn and the joys come in giving back. God made you who you are for a reason and the wonder is finding out why, what gifts do you need to share. So good luck and God bless, remember one day at a time, you didn't get to this point overnight. It is a hard journey but one worth taking.
