Get To Steppin!!!!!

I have to keep motivating you because I love everyone who reads this. I want everyone to live in abundance and health. I have dropped some more pounds so anyone who is trying to lose weight, stay tuned to my blogs on walking.

The sun is out I have more energy than ever. The last time I went walking I noticed some things like:

My heart isn't beating as fast
I'm not breathing hard
My feet aren't hurting
I actually feel like walking as much as I can
My clothes fit so much better

This is where I want you to be. I want you to notice your pain disappearing
and you not feeling how you use to. It takes more than a notion to get started, but once you do, you will start feeling and seeing a change within the first 2 weeks.

Start walking around the house. Try to stay on your feet as long as you can until you cannot bear it any more. I did this for the first week and it actually works. I walked around the coffee table, walked up the stairs, walked around the whole house and managed to do it for at least 30min. Keep in mind, I had about 50lbs around my mid section. I was terrible, and it seemed tough, but the more I did it the easier it had gotten.

Now your not walking in the house anymore, you see changes but not the big changes you hoped for. You go outside and try just to walk up and down the street. This time you are only able go up and down the street twice. Thats how I started, and now I do this 10 times or more. There are certain factors that could be of some trouble like, how long is the street? How fast should you go?

The main thing about walking is just doing it at your own pace. Walking is a exercise that does not cost you anything to do. You can get your exercise anytime you are putting one foot in front of the other. So if your walking to the store, going to get the mail, taking the dog for a walk...this is exercise. Do it often to see results. I have started jogging and walking to kinda mix up the routine. This works for me, but I believe if you walk 30 min a day, and add 5 minutes everyday you will see some changes. Be glad and proud of yourself that you are finally seeing some results.

You've walked for the last 5 months and you are now trying on those old clothes that you couldn't fit anymore. GUESS WHAT!!!
You can save money and keep those too little clothes because you are now getting smaller. You don't have to feel self concious when shopping for clothes because if everyone is looking at you now, its because they are wondering how did you get so fine. And to continue on this path make sure you figure out a way to help someone get healthy. This will enhance your life as well mainly because you took the time to show someone you cared and you gave them help.

Usually I will walk by myself. When I do this, its to meditate and pray while I am walking. I do this so I can keep my mind off of the actual exercise and focus on the goal.
I started walking in the back of my neighborhood all alone. I knew I was being watched, so I continued. Now I have almost the whole neighborhood walking in the evening time. With me. All of us. Over 34 people on the same page as me. This is good because I thought I could only motivate myself. I hope to have more people walking with me so we all can achieve being healthy.

Walking is so great, I can't express it enough. I lost 45 lbs when I believed I could not lose any weight ever. It took will power and prayer to get going. Now that I have started I don't want to stop. Once you get started I don't want you to stop either. If you can do anything for yourself, walk a little. This will also be beneficial for your family. You can motivate them to walk also.

So everyone, come on and take the first step to making your life better. Turn off the T.V. and lose the other distractions, and last but not least GET TO STEPPIN!!!!!!!!

Walking Is Acheiving

Today is the day you have been waiting on. The day that you said you would finally get up and do some exercises. You still feel really bad from all the weight you had put on for the last 9 or 10 so you say you would do it tomorrow. Each day that passes, the day you could have done some exercises, you still put it off day after day after day. This was me, always saying “I’m going to do it tomorrow” but tomorrow always seems to never come.
What I did was try to figure out what I could do to lose weight where afterwards I don’t have to worry about going under the knife. So the first thing I did was joined a gym. I did this because I felt that with everyone there trying to get in shape; I would be motivated to work out. Started going to the gym, and when I got there I felt intimidated from all the people who had been going and already have their bodies where they want it to be. I did not feel comfortable because of the way everyone else looked. Right then I knew it wasn’t for me.
What am I going to do? It’s hard to do a diet, and its tougher going to the gym. What I did was started walking. Started walking without thought. When you think about walking, the time , the distance, you began to be intimidated. But I want you to do it without thinking about it. This is to help anyone who is a little over weight to get moving if you want to see results.
My reasons for not walking were always foot and back pain. This was all because of the weight I had carried for so many years. So how did I get up and start walking? We’ll all I can say is it wasn’t easy but it had to be done.
I began picturing myself thin, getting in clothes that I had never been able to wear before.
I was sick and tired of being sick and tired. I knew I had to do something. Watching the news I saw “Chalie Boy’ a rapper from Austin talking about losing weight. When they showed his before and after photos, I was surprised. All because he got up and started doing something about his weight. Now I began to do something about my weight.
It’s 5 am and I began walking on my street. It was tough but I did it to at least get started. My back pain was so bad that I had to immediately stop after 10 min. I was very sweaty and too exhausted to keep going. I was upset at myself because all I can ask was,” How did I let myself get this big?” My weight was 258 lbs when I started, now I’m down to 219 lbs. I now walk 3-6 miles a day. My blood pressure has gone down tremendously. And remember that foot and back pain I hated so much at the beginning? Well I haven’t had that feeling in so long I forgot what it felt like. I really enjoy walking and exercising so much that I do it now without thought. I am grateful for my new body and my new leash on life.
I still have a little ways to go to get to my goal of 200 lbs. I can do it and I know it’s possible because of what I have lost so far. I have to still change my diet, but I don’t eat the way I use too. I eat in portions and moderation. This helps with strengthening my metabolism and keeps me burning fat.

I want to encourage anyone that is struggling with weight issues to start walking. Walking is an exercise that can be very beneficial in keeping you healthy and at a proportion body weight. So people of the world, walk now, and thank me later.
