Sorry I keep clogging up your dash with these long ones. WOOPS.
Everyone should read this
This hits home far more than I’d ever really care to talk about….
I could name a handful of people I was band aids for
i can relate that being said if i ever made anyone feel like a band aid before I am so fucking sorry because you are worth more
I agree with this post, but there is something to be said for being the emotional support for someone when they need it. It doesn’t need to leave you miserable, or stuck, or create emotional damage in you. There are cases when people will use you, (intentionally or unintentionally) but it doesn’t mean you didn’t help them, and it doesn’t mean you to stay and be used. My point is, don’t be afraid to be the support that someone needs just because they might not return the favor, that’s not friendship, that’s currency.
I started my weight loss journey in the Winter of 2011. It is now about to be Winter of 2013 and as of today I have lost a total of 88 lbs. It took me a year to lose that, starting off with weight watchers, getting into zumba, and becoming a zumba instructor myself. I’ve gotten as far down as to 124 but this last year I’ve just been maintaining my weight loss fluctuating between 125-135 lbs. Now I’m finally trying to get the last 10 off BUT more importantly I’m trying not to care what the scale says I just want to see my overall goal in the mirror and in my clothes. I want to be more toned. So on top of zumba, I started pilates and some weight training. Also clean eating.
So for anyone wondering I work out 5-7 days a week
I do zumba everyday I workout. Some days 20 mins and some days I’ll do up to 2 hours. I started doing pilates/weights 3-4 days a week for about 15-25 mins. I also take my dog on 2 daily short walks. I eat 1200 calories daily but 1-2 days a week I’ll go up to anywhere between 1400-1700. I drink water like a fish as well! Water is so important! And literally just starting today I’m giving up 95% all processed foods!
I just thought I’d share my full story and what I am starting to do now!
Dont give up! I still haven’t and it has and always will pay off wonderfully!
