Signs I really need to lose the weight.

Over the past three years, I have gained back most of the weight I magically shed off in 2002. They say the road to recovery from whatever crisis one faces (major weight issues in my case) starts with acceptance, and I guess I’m at that phase now. For a long time, I was in denial, often just shrugging it off to “water weight” or a splurge from the night before. After my denial, I went into anger, which was often directed at people who would comment about my ballooning weight. I also went through the stage of bargaining with myself, giving myself ultimatums and offering myself rewards for losing an allotted number of pounds which obviously haven’t worked. I attribute that to the fact that I still have not made amends with myself about it.

However, now that I am more aware and trying to become serious about getting back into shape, I am assessing where I am and taking stock of the situation. I have identified three major signs that scream I really need to lose the weight:

  1. My pants are ripping at the crotch area again! Well, to be more exact, at the upper inner thigh. I think it’s from the stretching and friction that happens when I walk.
  2. Teaching my preschoolers is becoming even more difficult. I used to blame it on the age thing, but I admit now that it’s more of the fact I am so heavy that it is already affecting my activities of daily life.
  3. I feel distressed about my situation, physically, emotionally and mentally.

There, I said it. Hopefully having it in public encourages me to become more proactive in the weight loss, and this is the start of a more serious approach to it. At times, I wish I could just go in for surgery or find great weight loss pills that will make the diet painless and instantaneous! However, I guess the saying no pain, no gain had to come from somewhere, right?

    Don’t lose hope. Yung mga morbidly obese nga they’re able to lose weight eh. I followed Biggest Loser Asia and their weight lose is really amazing.
