My Weight Loss Dream A-Z Blogging Challenge: E Is For Energy

After yesterday and the dreaded diets we are now moving onto the best benefit of weight loss. Without energy how can we survive? We would plod along through life doing what we have to do and nothing else. We would work, we would watch television, we would eat or sleep. Then what?

The thing about energy is you don’t actually realise when you don’t it. You expect your life to be like that and don’t question it and its not until you find new energy that you realise how much you cherish it.

I felt like this after starting My Weight Loss Dream. Before that I made do. I ate too much because I felt that the only way to achieve energy was through carbs or sugar. Though since then I have rediscovered a new energy – the sort that only comes through weight loss and healthy eating.

Take this morning as an example – I managed 40 minutes of Zumba on the Wii. It was great fun and apart from one intense 5 minute dance I was not out of breath at all. Yet I go back into the past and just 12 months ago I couldn’t even manage 3 minutes on it and yet here I am with 40 minutes of exercise under my belt and all before breakfast time!

My mum always used to say to me when I was little that life was my oyster and that I should grab it with both hands and enjoy life to the full. This is exactly what I have achieved with My Weight Loss Dream. I have shown that weight loss is possible if you want to make it happen!

I have also discovered that energy is something special that has come out of my weight loss journey. I can now do what I want when I want without feeling like I am having an asthma attack.
So when people ask me what the greatest thing to come out of my weight loss I will say energy because without my newfound energy I wouldn’t be swimming, playing on the Wii, going for a jog with Dominic, trying to get pregnant (fingers crossed with this one) or just waking up on a morning without feeling like I need a lot of fizzy drinks in order to function.

Yes I still live for the movies but watching a movie can be just as much fun while doing free step on the Wii at the same time!

Time to follow it on and chat about the letter F and something that causes most of us to gain more weight than we have lost!
