In December I was in the pit of depression, and my doctor told me I was obese and to lose 15lbs immediately and to start taking vitamins and eating healthy. So I did. I went into this lifestyle with no goals but to simply get healthy. I have actually increased the amount of food I am eating, but it is all healthy now. I take 1 free day, where I eat whatever and how much I want. I have been working out 5 or 6 days per week for 25 minutes per day. It does not take much.
3 months later, I have lost a total of 26lbs. Approximately 35lbs of fat and put on about 8lbs of muscle. (195lbs to 169lbs)
I have lost 9″ off my waist.
My knee that had a torn ligament? Not bothering me at all.
My depression? Gone.
My BMI has gone from “obese” to the low overweight (26.5)
I cannot wait to see my doctors face.
I ate healthy even when we went to Disneyworld for a family vacation! (Ok I cheated just a little bit I was on vacation afterall! And Corona can hardly be considered beer. Right?)
SO I feel good.
The Lord has designed our bodies and minds to function together. It is amazing to me how being healthy can have such a dramatic impact on our brains. I am even thinking clearer now.
