My Fitness Journey

My name is Sednette. I’ve been overweight most of my life. I’ve suffered from depression and one reason for my weight gain has been my depression due to 5 miscarriages in the span of 5 years. In 2016 I finally had my son. Being a mom is very demanding and you sometimes lose focus on yourself and you let yourself go without even realizing it. Nov 4th, 2018 I looked at myself in the mirror and I could not recognize myself. I knew I needed a change. I knew I was killing myself and it wasn’t fair to my son.

My starting weight was over 420lbs. I say over 420lbs because my scale could not go higher than that and when I stepped on the scale it read error. I’m still working on myself but I’m not where I started.

I’ve learned that our mind is our biggest muscle. If you can envision yourself doing it then you can.

The biggest lesson I’ve learned is that we are stronger than we think. We are not perfect and weight loss is not an easy thing. We won’t lose all the weight it in a day because we didn’t gain it all in a day. But if we take it day by day and dust ourselves off when we stumble we will make it. Plus, this has to be a lifestyle change, not a diet.

I have not had any surgery or taken any weight-loss pills. The only surgery I may consider is excess skin removal if I do have a lot of excess skin when I am at my goal body. I say goal body because I’m still not sure what weight I would like to be.

Before I started I had a number in mind, but as of now I just want to be healthy and feel good!
