If McDonald’s was not open 24 hours I would lose weight.
If people would support me more, I would lose weight.
If there was a pill that worked, I would lose weight.
If I could afford surgery, I would lose weight.
If I had a personal trainer, I would lose weight.
If there was an easier way to track food, I would lose weight.
If I did not work at a restaurant, I would lose weight.
If someone would lose weight with me, I would lose weight.
If I had time, I would lose weight.
If I could, I would lose weight.

Those are ten of the millions of excuses I told myself at 420 pounds. Excuses that held me back. Excuses that made is acceptable to eat selfishly while I was letting my life get away from me. I knew I had to change, but it was hard. Too hard for me…

It is 2013 now. Guess what?

McDonald’s is still open 24 hours, there are people who are still not on my side, I do not have a personal trainer, I do not know a great diet pill, tracking food is hard, I work at a restaurant, no one lost weight with me, I still do not have a ton of money, I am still super busy………..

It is that last excuse that changed me. Because I could…

and I did lose over 200 pounds.
