My Weight Loss Challenge

Disclosure: Megan was gifted her weight loss program, however her weight loss journey is completely her own!

 B.C. – Before Challenge

I wear my weight like a scarlet letter, as if someone can see right through my skin and see the scars my fat has created on my heart.

I have struggled with body image my entire life, often times putting my entire self worth into my appearance.  When I started having children six and a half years ago I found an excuse to stop trying and start eating.  Thus began a spiral and has gotten me to 192.7 pounds and a feeling of utter defeat.  Feeling no pride in how I look, shying away from attention (which is so not me) and hiding in the corner has become an every day occurrance.  I have become “the fat friend” and I hate being the fattest person in the room.

Once I realized how unhappy I had actually become, after years of complaining, I have decided to finally do something about it.  I am going to fix my weight so I am healthy for my kids, happy for my friends, and affectionate for my husband. 

Nothing changes

What I’m Doing –

 I am literally eating chocolate.  This has got to be my favorite part.  I drink my energy booster and shake for breakfast, followed by essential vitamins.  Then, I drink water water water. It took me a few days to get used to drinking this much water but now I LOVE it.  For lunch, I drink another shake and eat a sensible dinner.  For snacks in between meals, I eat my chocolate.  I have never been excited about a “diet” before, but I have more energy and excitement.  I am even dreaming about how excited I am to lose the weight.   I am on day 6 of my 30 day weight loss challenge and have lost 5 pounds!

 Have you ever started a diet before? What advice do you have for me?
