I'm back! I sure have missed everyone! A lot has happened (which is why I had a hard time blogging) and I have much to share with you.
Note: I had second thoughts if I'll post this or not. I don't want you guys to think that I am being boastful about my body change, or I'm just showing this because of the product that I'm selling. But no. I just want to share this to remind myself from what/who I used to be. This is a part of my past that I will never forget, and I don't like to forget.
As you guys know, I am in a journey where I try to live a healthier life. (If you haven't read my first post about this, just click here!)
However, while I was gone I had ups and downs. But I'm restarting my journey now, and I would like to share you guys how I was able to get back on track.
I know I am not within my goal yet to provide any kind of tips, but I kind of feel like I am an expert about this since I've gone off track and got back on again multiple times.
Some of you may think that I'm a loser. But falling down doesn't make me a failure. I'am just a human, and I am sure we can all relate to having an off week, or month or sometimes a bit longer than that. If you've been through this, congrats! You're also a human. Don't worry how many times you've fallen, it's getting back up again that matters.
It isn’t always that easy, I still struggle just like the rest of you do. But what I always try to keep in mind is that I've done it before and I can do it again! Throughout this journey I've learned that every time I fail, I learn how to control my cravings, how to motivate myself, etc. This is how I am getting myself back on track.
Most of my family knows how my journey started. Just so you guys know, I joined a contest from a nutrition club which endorse Herbalife products. I've known this product since I was in highschool, but I stopped using it since I don't my own money at that time. When my aunt introduced me to Herbalife again, she asked if I wanted to join their own "biggest loser" challenge for a month. I said yes, because the money involved was quite big.
This was my before and after back then. I was still 190lbs on the right picture.
I forgot my weight when I first joined the contest, but I know I was really big. Throughout the challenge you have to drink their products. I was not seeing any changes from my body and I was losing my confidence to win. The final day came, and they weighed me in. My own eyes can't believe it, I lost 20lbs without exercising!
However, a lot of problems came. I am a person who likes to binge eat when I get stressed. I also got back to smoking, drinking alcohol and everything else. With that being said, I gained a lot of weight again. From 150 lbs to 180lbs in just a year.
Before everything gets worst, I decided to get back on track, and this post is where I am publicly recommitting. I will share with you all the things that have worked for me before, and hopefully work for me again this time.
