theresatractorinmyballs asked: hey, i like your blog. I've always been overweight, and its starting to catch up to me. doctor says i'll be diabetic before i'm 25 (22 now) if I don't do something. Getting a lot of skin tags from chafing. I'm vegetarian (goin 8 years strong now), and it makes me sad when doctors say I need to diet, because all I eat is vegetables already. its like, shit man what else can i do? exercising sucks. any advice?
I recently took up a vegetarian diet myself! I am growing increasingly worried about my health as I’ve been chubby my whole life, but now I’m actually fat and lead a very unhealthy life. So yeah, my first steps are to change my diet and once I warm up to it and get used to it I’m going to begin regular exercise. we seem to share the same issue with physical activity- it does seem to suck. Getting yourself motivated to be sweaty and out of breath can be a struggle, trust me I clearly know! unfortunately it’s very necessary. diabetes is nothing to fool around with. I suggest forming a habit of going for 20-30 minute walks a few times a week and slowly doing more from there. if you have the funds, definitely look into going to a gym. I have a lot of fun at gyms because there is so much to try out and then you find a good balance of cardio and strength training. all it takes is 5 times of forcing yourself to get up and exercise- once you do that, you actually start wanting to work out! it becomes fun :) beyond that are plenty of other little things you can do- jumping jacks during commercials, run up and down your stairs a couple of times, park further from entrances, etc. I hope this helped!
