Goodbye Catherine's and Hello Teaching
Fitness Journey 2017
I've struggled my with my weight nearly all of my life. Being overweight sucks! Numerous times I've tried different health and weight loss gimmicks hoping and praying that the weight would come off. I remember even making deals with God; He doesn't love me was what I thought at one time in my life because he made me different from my friends. Different in all of the wrong ways. My weight keeps me from being as active as I'd like. I'd love to train for a half-marathon or even a entire marathon but between my feet and my weight there's no chance of that happening. Why do I have this strong sense of wanting to run? I know now more than ever I can't run away from life's problems! I just want to run! A couple of years ago I hit my all-time high weight nearing 290 lbs I feared I would just keep escalating. I had a conviction to stop gaining and start losing or at the very least keep maintaining a lower weight (below 285). I've attained this goal! I have stayed around the 270's mark for the past year plus, so now it's time to step up my game. You know how some people just want to lose weight for the wedding? I know someone who is paying a personal trainer and everything; She even has thus hashtag on her Instagram account #sweatingforthewedding don't get me wrong we all have our motivations but I'm saying is this. My motivation is deeper. I have a lifetime goal, rather than one shorter goal. Sure I want to or lose 100 lbs and it would be my hope that I'm already on this big journey when I get engaged so that I can justify continue my journey rather than go on a "diet" for my wedding. What I'm saying is I want to change my lifestyle. I'm not interested in dieting!
