Lost 29 lbs & 42 inches
Before I started this 60 day challenge I was the heaviest I have ever been at 235 lbs. At the age of 31, I could not walk my dog around the block without being winded. I was not working out or paying attention to what I was putting in my body. I was in complete denial that I had been neglecting myself for so long. I have struggled with weight since I was about 8 years old. By struggle I mean, I have either been overweight or obese since then. I have been an insecure, scared, sad, irritable, impatient and unhappy person since that time.
I have tried many different ways to change my body and get healthy from weight watchers (multiple times), to LA weight loss. I have had minimal success losing weight and I have never been able to make habits stick or keep the weight off. When I sat down to reflect on my challenges and past attempts at the beginning of this 60 day challenge, I wrote down the things that I have believed about myself; I am not ‘meant’ to be skinny, I can not follow through or complete goals, I can not run, I can not exercise like other people, I don’t have time to workout – I had racked up a long list of excuses and had resigned myself to living that way for the past 22 years.
This challenge has provided me the opportunity to prove myself wrong. Since starting the challenge, I have not only felt amazing and energized, but most importantly, I am a better parent. I feel like I can accomplish things I didn’t believe I could before. I am more patient and kind to my daughter, and we are both happier.
I MAKE the time for myself to exercise and my body feels stronger everyday. I have been able to set goals and attain them. I am training myself to run - which I said I would NEVER do. I am celebrating the small victories along the way that I did not think were possible before. For the first time in my life, I can see and know that I will feel the way I want to and that I will have the body I want to with this program. I have been able to implement healthy habits around exercise, food and taking care of myself and I can see my final goal.
I have been able to acknowledge when I make excuses and I have not allowed that to be a part of my internal narrative anymore. My internal narrative is that, “You CAN do this Kathrine, YOU are strong, and you deserve to feel and look healthy”. To date, that kind of narrative has allowed me to be committed and focused on what I want and has taught me that my heart will lead me into accomplishing things my head has always told me I can’t do. This has helped me shed 29 lbs and 42.25 inches in the past 60 days.
I have a long way to go, but now I KNOW that I will get there.
