Why I'm Not Losing Weight

It's been a while since I talked about my weight. I haven't updated my stats page either, even though I should. I know a lot of people who would say they aren't having a hard time. I'm not sure why I'm no longer that kind of person.

I wonder what my life would be like if I had stayed with my parents. What would I be doing if I hadn't moved in with my sister? I know I'll never know, but I still wonder. Would I have ever moved in with my other sister? Would I be living with my sister and her kids? I don't know.

You're probably thinking this is way off topic based on the title of this post. It's not, really. The thing is, part of why I haven't lost any weight is because I live with my sister. It's partly because of her that I make certain choices. It's really hard to work all day and then come home and cook. It's hard to want to deal with the stress of cooking and cleaning for three extra people.

I don't want to make excuses, though. It's my responsibility as an adult to do what I have to do. It's my responsibility to make healthy choices. I'm not a child, but I don't know if I grew up enough to make the right decisions.

I've lived with someone my entire life. The closest I came to being on my own was when I lived with my other sister for a few months. And honestly that went really well. I know from that experience that I can lose weight. I know from that experience that I have what it takes to get healthy and lose weight.

For the last year and a half I've been living on take out, fast food and junk food. I eat McDonald's for breakfast every weekday morning. I eat take out or fast food for lunch and dinner every day. I'm also not exercising. Like at all.

It's definitely my fault that I'm not losing weight. I take full responsibility for my behavior. But I'm also not surprised. Every time I live with my sister, my eating habits revert back to the bad decisions and I don't work out.

I need to figure out how to change my eating habits. I need to stop eating fast food and take out every day. I need to start working out. I also need to save money and get a car. With a car of my own, I will be so much freer to change how I live my life.

How about you guys? Are you having problems losing weight or fixing a problem you want to fix? Do you have any tips for me? Let's chat in the comments!
