I was tired of being fat. I listened to all the people who said that you should be happy with every part of yourself, and not worry about losing weight if you’re not interested in doing so. But the more weight I gained, the more tired and unhealthy I felt. I realized that these people were missing the point that I was not healthy, and health is everything. The first help that I got was by looking for the best exercise bike so that I could get a good one to work out at home with. I planned on doing things right so that I could finally lose weight.
Trying a lot of fad diets didn’t help me. I had already heard that they don’t really work, but I tried them anyway because of my incorrect assumption that they would somehow work for me. I spent too much money buying the different foods each fat diet told me to eat. Now, I simple eat lean protein and veggies for most of my meals, and that is good enough for me. They taste good and are not expensive. The change to my diet helped me to lose some weight quickly and steadily.
The next thing that I wanted to do was to take working out very seriously. I don’t like simply running around the block or going hiking. I like sticking pretty close to home. I figured that, rather than sitting on the couch to watch TV at night, I could sit on my bike and watch TV while working out. After I got the bike, I worked on getting a treadmill. The use of both of these things has helped me to shed over 100 pounds. I really enjoy the new and improved me. I feel better and I don’t feel so tired anymore.
