Seeing these people have success with their weight may be helpful because:
A) It shows that it's possible. Sometimes when you've been overweight for so long you fear that you will never get down to a healthy weight.
B) It gives you a visual to cling to, an image to keep in mind as you workout and make healthy food choices.
Here are some inspirational sites I've come across lately.
- The Weigh We Were-- This site features people who have lost huge amounts of weight through diet and exercise alone. Each featured person tells their own story in their own words.
- Black Women Losing Weight-- Featuring success stories, motivational articles, and monthly challenges, this site shows people who have lost weight both from diet and exercise and/or weight loss surgery.
- Huffpost Healthy Living -- This site features various articles about people who have lost weight. At the end of each article is a slideshow of other weight loss stories to choose from.
- CNN Weekly Weigh In -- CNN showcases weight loss success stories. There are video segments to accompany the articles.
If you have been struggling with your weight, I hope these sites motivate you to get up and try again.
