My Fitness Journey

My name is Sednette. I’ve been overweight most of my life. I’ve suffered with 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 about 420. I say about 420 because my scale could not go higher than that and when I stepped onto it read error. I’m currently 237. 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 weightloss is not an easy thing. We won’t lose it in a day because we didn’t gain it 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 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!
