WE ARE IN week four and I hope that someone is getting help from my advice every week.
Yet again, a Tuesday morning doesn’t pass without a weigh in and we’re down 7 and a ½ pounds, which is yet another great week of hard work in the gym and on the road.
So, during the weekend I headed off to Manchester for some time to chill, but been determined to get the pounds down I was out running and exercising for the time I was there. Yes of course I had a night out and I ate a Sunday dinner. They are a rare treat to me.
England was great. Whatever restaurant I went to there are free salad bars for the customer to use as much as they feel like. I’ve never seen this done before and I think it’s a great idea for businesses, because of some people that might want to try and eat healthy do go out for a night.
I got back from Manchester on Monday morning and headed straight back to the gym as I felt my body was craving it.
I suppose just to get a good burnout and clear the mind. I feel like it’s some sort of drug that gives you a high and it’s an even better high when you see the weight dropping.
I don’t mind saying that I used to have to shop in Tesco for my clothes because it was the only place that fitted me now. For a 20 or 21-year-old, that is a terrible knock to your confidence that you can’t shop where all your mates shop.
For someone as heavy as myself, you blame everyone else, but yourself. When you really sit down and think about it you realise no one made you eat that food, that was your decision. It wasn’t forced down your neck and you have to be able to understand that.
No one else can help you lose the weight only yourself. It’s your mind that chooses what you want to do in life. You just have to pick the right path for you. I know I still have a lot of weight to lose, but I’m mentally determined to do it for myself.
Some people on this planet hate to see others succeed in life, because they can’t succeed. All you can ever do for these people is just laugh, because in the long term you will always be the better person.
