I'm betting you're saying... here Mel goes again, flooding our timelines...lol
In 2010, at 285 lbs everyday things became a challenge, from tying my shoelaces to coming out the car. I made a #decision to change it. Started reading and researching healthier ways to eat and exercise... this worked for a while but soon I was back to my hectic lifestyle and neglected what I've learned and the progress I've made.
Again in 2016, at 255 lbs I joined a popular fitness group and started again. I learnt what to eat and how to exercise and the weight melted away a second time but once again I was back to my hectic lifestyle and irregular eating habits.
July 2019 at 260 lbs, I decided this is it... I am determined now to find the balance to life; work, #healthy relationships, sex and an active lifestyle, in 6 months I dropped 65 lbs. Wow! You say? It came with focus, dedication and consistency. Now, I'm more energetic, active and I look and feel younger.
One size doesn't fit all, finding what works for you will take time. It took me almost 10 years to realize a healthier happier body isn't all about weightloss but about finding that balance. Everytime I "derailed" wasn't because I over ate, was because I got so consumed in my career and family life that I forgot to take care of myself.
