Have you been struggling with your weight most of your life? There are lots of people who have looked in the mirror and decided that they need to find some way to trim the belly fat. I have been struggling with a weight issue for many years now. And just like the rest of the world, I was unsure what to do about it. While I would be able to achieve some success every now and then when it came to getting fit and trim, I was never able to stay that way. The true problem was over the long haul I was really just continually getting bigger.
When I was young, I was not fat. I could eat everything and anything without worrying about getting fat. I was always playing outside, playing tag, running, biking, playing sports, skiing, and just enjoying all of the things that a child does. Because of all the activity all that I ever had to eat was the meals that were made by my family and I did not indulge in any of the extras.
I noticed that my belly had begun to grow when I got past my teenage years. No longer did I spend the better part of the day running around outside with my friends. However, I did not really get very concerned until I found that I had become self-conscious. I started to notice other changes as well. I had to start buying larger sized clothing.
I started to think of different things that I could do to change and thought if I bought a videotape with a six pack ab exercise program I would become more active and when I started my first exercise regimen I noticed I noticed that I was getting thinner. It was hard for me to understand the scope of what I was dealing with. The reality of it was that I had gotten fat.
I began to realize that my weight was affecting more than my physical appearance. I was feeling sad and upset that I had gained so much weight, but I felt alone and even when I turned to message boards such as the biggest loser weight loss forum I still did not know what to do or where to go to get help although it seemed that a lot of people I knew were also overweight and it was not really a subject that I could talk to them about.
One day I looked in the mirror and staring back at me was a total stranger. It was a moment of awareness that I could not deny. I wanted to have fun again. I knew that there had to be something I could do that would help me lose weight. I was not looking for something that was quick and easy. Even though I had read a lot about the available surgeries, they were not the way I wanted to go and I knew one of those plans that told me I could lose weight fasting was not the solution that I was looking for.
Eventually the changes I made led to a fit and trim body. In the end I just started making healthier choices about what to put into my body. I also started getting regular physical activity. I did not start out with a strenuous regimen. Eventually it grew into a lot more. Because of the effort I am now at a healthy weight. Because I did not give up I was able to accomplish my goals. You can not replace the commitment with anything else.
