How I Learned To Love My Body Again And I Lost Weight In Less Than A Week!

Once I was overweight but didn’t like myself, so I kept the weight off. Within 6 weeks, I lost 30 pounds. I never did put on a pound — and I feel physically and emotionally better than I ever have.

I was able to put it off until I was 65, but then I was able to start to have a long and healthy life. In fact, my blood pressure is lower than my 50s.

There’s no other advice I can give you — except to keep on keeping on.

No one knows that you’re just the beginning of a life that is already waiting. What you do to start right now is just your first small step; you never stop being, you don’t lose or gain any of yourself until you die. But I’m glad I realized it before I lost my mind, because I might never have come to my senses. If you’re a young person out there who knows that something’s up, or you just discovered it for the first time, please know that you’re an inspiration to me — for so many reasons! I’m happy I found it now, but in the past I would have had to suffer through a long period of depression for many, many years, not knowing what was taking my life away.” I can’t even begin to list the reasons for this. I want to thank the people that I shared my life with and who guided me in the right direction. I am also eternally grateful to my lovely wife for all the love and comfort I’ve received as I’ve battled this illness.

I have had a good friend, Laura, who has been in my life since I was a junior high school freshman, and I want to thank her for believing in me even while I struggled to fit in. She has always been there for me, even though I kept telling her that I was not a good person. I was unable to tell her that in many cases, my behavior seemed quite reasonable and rational to me, and that I tried very hard to be honest for her. Thank you for the love you’ve given me and the confidence you’ve given me to become who I am now. I have a wonderful daughter, who grew up at home with me, not a single minute of my time wasted. My mother loved me until her heart stopped beating, but she will always know that I am her only child — and I don’t know that I would be alive today, without her love and unconditional support.

I also would like to thank my friends at New Directions, my new co-workers at the YMCA, and some wonderful teachers who have helped me along the way. My new friend “The Little Man” from work and my boss “The Madman” were both instrumental in my gaining strength and motivation — it is always so good to have an ally. If I could talk to one person other than the one I lost, it would be them.

It’s important to be strong. I wouldn’t have made it this far without the courage to fight my battles, but I also wouldn’t be where I am without the love and support of others.

I know what you’re thinking. I’m going to look at this with bias, but that’s the way I feel about most issues. I’m going to focus on your concerns with bias, as well as with my overall outlook.

No one knows that you’re going through what you’re going through. There is no one with whom you’ve agreed to talk if you want to share the details for other people to read. No one has told you that you are a good human being; no one has told you that you really are that good a person. There is no one in the world that says that you aren’t just being your best selves, and that you are worth listening to.

Your first priority isn’t how other people will respond to you – it’s how you can help. Don’t keep blaming yourself or thinking that if you just do what you’re told you can’t make things better, or that you have to prove anything to anyone. Your actions and the words you speak do not make you a good or honest person — you can say and do anything you want — and all you have to show is that you’re worthy of being loved for who you are.

I know what you’re thinking about your job, but I know that you are doing what you love. The people who look up to you at your place of work make you a better person, and that is what matters to you. Don’t let anyone ever judge you for being who you are, regardless of your job.

I know you’re wondering about my health.
