I've been through a horrible 10 months. Wanted so much to get in shape and lose this weight, but had so many life stressors that I just kept going backward. Now I've had my "Spark Moment" and am determined to do something constructive toward regaining my health and vitality.
Positive things I've done:
* Got back on my anti-depressants and got the dosage right, so got some energy finally
* Got my financial situation on the right track so I won't be so stressed over that
* Made a plan to move to my own place again in May. Thought I'd be out of here by January, but things don't always turn out the way you plan.
Negative things I've done:
* Stopped exercising
* Ate too much junk food
* Gained 10 lbs.
My "Spark Moment" was when I went to get some new jeans, bought a size 14 thinking they would fit, because I was in a 12 before. Didn't bother to try them on, and when I got them home, they were way far away from zipping. I sat down and cried, because I promised myself I would NEVER get to a size 14, and now I'm over that. At 5'4" with a small frame, that's not good.
It's easy for me to get lazy in the summer, due to how the heat affects my lupus, but usually by now I'm back out walking in the morning. Not this year. I've been totally lazy and need to just get off my butt and go! I have a few days left to this month, and it's crunch time with work, so I'm going to do 10 minutes a day until Dec. 1, then really start doing this right, using my trackers and participating in discussions.
I need to work hard, because I have a wedding to go to this summer, and I want to be back down to 125 by then. I'm thinking 2 lbs. a week until June 1st oughta do it.
