Finding new healthy, fun activities to do instead of the past Friday out to eat/drinks etc. 💗
HI!! ALL my new followers!!! My name is Joanmichelle.
My nick name is Schellie, and I am an RN. Welcome to my weight loss journey!
This is my fourth time trying to lose weight within the last 5 years. I have been obese, and battling with my food addiction all of my life.
Food addiction doesn't just go away, so when any stressors would come - food would be what I went to; which is how I ended up weighing over 200 pounds at only 5'1 and a half.
Anyway, the last 3 times I've tried this journey, I would lose up to 30 lbs and then right back to food .... and I ended up gaining the 30 pounds I lost, PLUS more back. This time, Is different. I FEEL IT!
If I don’t succeed this time, then I know I tried and I will just keep pushing forward and try again. I am only human, and #everdayisanewday
This time, I am using EVERYTHING that I have learned in the past, and my mind is open to learning SO much more. I have made this my permanent lifestyle and I have cut things out of my life so I can dedicate myself to an extremely healthy lifestyle. My post help me stay motivated and accountable. That's the #1 reason I started posting and youtubing. I didn't start posting or youtubing until I lost about 36lbs because initially I was so embarrassed, I did not have any confidence in myself, and I thought it was just going to be like all the other times I tried to lose weight. (Like I said.... this is my fourth time. I've lost 30 pounds and then gained it all, plus more, back)
Then something just snapped and I realized that this is my lifestyle now. I need to be healthy for me, and my mom. That was it. I do not want to be out of breath going up stairs, cranky all the time, and feel uncomfortable everywhere I go. Now that I am aware of my food addiction, I am attacking it head on and calling it what it is. I have been able to drastically change my eating habits to healthy habits, and make time to work out at least 4x/wk, I KNOW that I will get to my goal weight eventually. I am not in a rush because I know that this IS my Lifestyle.
