Sorry, it’s been a little quiet over the last couple of weeks. My oldest son has been sick, and I’ve been drowning in paperwork ugh … I’ll get better on updating — I promise! 🙂
Anyways, I promised I would write more on how I lost weight.
I got started after watching a TV show similar to the “The biggest loser” … Cliche, I know. I’ve seen plenty of these shows before, but this time there was something different. I was seeing a woman, a few years older than me, and how her weight had ruined her family.
I kinda saw myself like that. It really scared me. It is a hard feeling to describe, but it’s that ‘what the hell am I doing with my life feeling’ … I decided then that I was going to lose weight — and this time I was going to make it.
I first sat down in front of the computer, googling ‘how to lose weight’. I was reading side up and side down on various forums, Yahoo Answers .. you name it. I bet there are as many weight loss programs as there are obese people. I eventually landed at ebweightloss.com, through WebMD.com, and read her review on the Venus factor program (direct link).
I know from previous weight loss ventures that my biggest problem is my motivation. Even now, I knew that my initial boost after watching the TV show would end in a few weeks, and I would be back to the same old. This was one of the reasons for chosing the venus program in the first place … I wanted to stay motivated, and figures the members area was a great place for this. I also have little knowledge og the mechanisms behind weight loss, and had to get a program which was easy to comprehend.
It’s been a while since I finished my 12 weeks, but I still stick to the principles in the program. I even hang out at the members area. Staying healthy is a lifestyle, and something I’ve actually gained a genuine interest in (which is one of the reasons for starting this blog).
I will get to you in hopefully not to long with some pictures and a ‘timeline’, if you can call it that, of my weight loss story.
