I used to think there was nothing I could do about my weight. I tried diet and exercise and even slim-fast. I resigned to believing fat was something that happened to me. It was out of my control.
Have you ever felt that way?
Time and time again I resolved to change my weight. To become thinner. To look better. I would become determined and... very little would happen.
I concluded that nothing I did could really push the scale down. I was just destined to be fat. This mentality continued for years until I got so fat I got mad. I was fed up (pardon the pun). I hated how I looked, I hated how I felt, and I hated that I had to present myself to the world as a huge tubby.
Things are different now. I look better, feel better, and feel as though I'm presenting a better me to the world.
I'm not all the way to my goal, but I have definitely learned that I am in control of my weight and my life.
