Changisgood had been in my mind to change certain things in my life. One was first and most important. My attitude, I was a person that was always unhappy more to the fact just mad all the time. I worried about everything and anything. I was making myself sick not sleeping and over analyzing everything.
I was unhappy about everything to being overweight to not having a lot of money to anything would just set me off. I was so sick I had to leave two jobs. I asked to be closer to home but still work. I went in everyday feeling sick. I like to work but feeling sick it was not motivated. No luck so took the summer off volunteering with a scout camp. I found more work and the same thing happened was so sick that I had to leave.
So again I volunteered with a Celtic festival for two weeks. I wanted and needed to work so did a temp reception job for a week. Another temp job for a week, I had been there for 7 years. I was hitting my 5 year and decided I needed to change things one step at a time. It was scary but had to be done. I started with attitude just reading about self help and taking what I read and using it. Of course it was not over night. It took time and effort but effort I needed to take to be happy. It started to work.
I became pregnant march 2008. During pregnancy I still worried but was NOT sick. Was the best year for a long time?
I had a beautiful baby boy Nov 30th 2008. After that I gained a lot of weight. I decided to DO something about it. I did and started to feel better. It was and still is a long journey.
Since the birth of my son in Nov 2008 to today Feb 3rd I have lost over 125 pounds. Trying several different things. Some worked some did not but I never gave up. Weight loss is hard but the first step which was the scariest was admitting I had a weight problem and asking for help. After that nobody can stop me. I became so sick after losing weight an un healthy way. I had to have my gall bladder taken out.
I am Not an nutritionist, nor a doctor or even a work out freak. I am a normal person that needed to take her life, attitude and weight in her own hands.
Everyone is different what works for one may or may not work for another. Having someone there to talk to does help. Giving up is not an option. You are important.
Changeisgood came in Aug of 2011 when I was following a weight loss program. I went to my personal coach upset and frustrated about how much I have changed everything attitude weight and the way I interact with people. I was fed up with all the hard work I was doing and people still bring up the past. Or treating me the same as I used to be. I know it takes time for someone to change I know it takes time for people to change the way they see you. But after working with people for 6 years and over one year of that have been changing then let the past go.
I was offered a job with the weight loss program. And took it.It was the next step in changing. I was no longer sick I was no longer not sleeping at night wondering what they would say or not say the next day. It was a fresh start. Everyone that I would meet or coach did not know how I used to be. So there was no going back in the past.
My college and I have a 24h rule. If something is bothering you, we have 24h to talk about it. If not then put it in the past.
I read a self help book that said “THINK AS YOUR DAY AS AN HOUR GLASS ONLY ONE PIECE OF SAND CAN FALL AT A TIME”.
Changeisgood came because of all this and more. The best thing I ever did was change my attitude, weight and now JOB.
