Carpe Diem!

I'm done with constantly falling off the wagon, it's time I seize the day! This time around I'm ready for a lifestyle change while doing things the healthy way. I'm tired of bouncing between feeling sorry for myself and avoiding my problem of being overweight.

Last time I went shopping and tried on clothes in the dressing room I had a breakdown. NOTHING fit and I looked awful. I felt terrible and so I went home and ate. ATE! That's when I knew I had to stop feeling sorry for ...
I'm done with constantly falling off the wagon, it's time I seize the day! This time around I'm ready for a lifestyle change while doing things the healthy way. I'm tired of bouncing between feeling sorry for myself and avoiding my problem of being overweight.

Last time I went shopping and tried on clothes in the dressing room I had a breakdown. NOTHING fit and I looked awful. I felt terrible and so I went home and ate. ATE! That's when I knew I had to stop feeling sorry for myself and stop feeling jealous of others and DO something about it!

So I'm being proactive. I know it's not going to be a quick fix. I know it's not going to be easy. But it will be SO worth it to feel like myself again. I'll finally have a reason to do all the things I've always wanted to try, and feel good about myself when doing them.

Hey Prim,
Just checking in, I thought I saw you post somewhere recently that you were back... Just thought I'd check in. I just fell off the wagon for about 6 months myself. I literally just decided to come back a couple days ago. I'm about 8 lbs up from where I left off, so it could be a LOT worse. I joined the biggest loser challenge, I'm a little afraid I will fail, but I'm gonna try my best! Anyways, let me know if you're around or want to talk! Let me know how things are going with you.. it's been a long time!
Jess

Thanks for your blog comment!! As usual you know just what to say to make me feel better! You are totally right! Doing a makeover might be a little difficult since I spent all of my money on his makeover, lol!! But I will have to try to do something fun! Plus I get paid today!! WOOHOO for that!

In other news, my gym is CLOSED!!! I almost cried I was so upset!! I had no idea, no warning! I was just working out there one day, then the next day it was closed with a sign on the door saying that it was because the new owner's had defaulted on their payments! Which of course, made me mad at them.. err!! It was the closest gym to my house, and cheaper then the other gyms in my area, and it had fan's on all of the cardio machines!! which I thought was awesome, so I'm totally bummed out!! The next closest gym is a Snap Fitness, which I hear they have all over the world, and you can go to any of their locations if you have a membership... they are more expensive then my other gym was, but they are open 24/7 and have some other neat things that my last gym didn't, so I'll probably go check it out and see if it seems worth it. I'm trying to not let my gym closing throw a monkey wrench in my workout plan!! But it's hard not to be upset when I was just FINALLY getting back into it!!

Oh well! How are things going with you?? I hope you are having more success then I have been having lately!! And thanks again for being there for me!! It means so much that you care when I'm feeling down and you are such an awesome support person! I only hope I can be just as good to you when you need it!!

I always loved that movie too! Hard to believe that movie came out over 10 years ago!! Back then meeting on the internet was still shady and weird hehe.

Nice to hear from you! I was away a bit on a little vacation. Anna is doing just fine! She is such a good girl... a simple woodland creature... but a very loyal one! I hope all goes well with you!
