I have been overweight almost all of my life. When I say overweight, I mean like 100 pounds overweight. I am 5’2 and weigh close to 230 pounds. Ideally, I should weigh anywhere between 116 and 136 pounds. I’ve always struggled with my weight, despite several attempts to keep it in check.
And I can’t say that I’m lazy because I walk six miles each day to and from work. I guess I could do more at the gym, but to be honest, I have a full-time job and have two kids; this doesn’t afford me much time to hit the gym on a regular basis. My youngest son plays sports and I find myself at the football or baseball field several nights throughout the week. I simply don’t have time to go to the gym.
As I get older, though, I am starting to notice how just how much I’m overweight and getting really self-conscious. I am starting to notice that a lot of people my age are in shape and not overweight. The more I look around, the more I am unhappy with what I see in the mirror. The real catalyst was when I went to another of my son’s Little League game and overheard one of the moms talking about my pudge.
The depression and anxiety that have crept into my life over the past few months are really bad. Sometimes, I can’t even get out of bed because I simply don’t have the energy. My therapist says it’s the depression that is causing me to feel like this. I’ve always been a very determined person in regards to goals I set for myself, so that’s exactly what I’ve done — I’ve set a goal to lose at least 50 pounds during the next 12 months.
My friend, Dan, suggested that I start taking a fat burning pill known as Ultra Omega Burn. This pill doesn’t exactly taste the best, but the results I have received from taking it has been quite good. Sure, I’ve only lost two pounds in the past two weeks that I have been taking it, but if I continue at this rate, I will exceed my goal of losing 50 pounds in a year. I’ll lose 52 pounds! I wish I was losing more weight more quickly, but at least I’m losing and not gaining. I am going to continue taking it because it does give me a lot of energy and has helped me lose two pounds in only two weeks.
If the pills continue to work as they have been over the past couple weeks, I know I am going to look and feel great after losing 50 pounds. Now, 50 pounds is not all I want to lose, but it is my goal for this year. Hopefully, after two years of working on my weight, I can lose the whole extra 100 pounds.
