Still trying...

I've been an on-again-off-again Sparkpeople user for years, and for a while, I felt like "I finally got it!" I started exercising regularly in Spring of 2012. I slowly started adjusting my eating habits and increased my workouts. In Fall 2012, I started seeing some serious results. I lost weight, but because I was strength training, I looked better than ever. From January 2013 until June 2013, I was absolutely rocking the healthy lifestyle. I ate healthy.

I've been an on-again-off-again Sparkpeople user for years, and for a while, I felt like "I finally got it!" I started exercising regularly in Spring of 2012. I slowly started adjusting my eating habits and increased my workouts. In Fall 2012, I started seeing some serious results. I lost weight, but because I was strength training, I looked better than ever. From January 2013 until June 2013, I was absolutely rocking the healthy lifestyle. I ate healthy. I worked out twice a week (minimum). I had lost some weight, getting down to about 160 pounds, with a good bit of muscle. By my sister's wedding in June, I was feeling pretty confident. I even felt comfortable enough to wear a bikini at a pre-wedding pool party. But then, life got sort of busy... my workout buddy got engaged and stopped finding the time to work out and before too long, I just stopped going altogether. I still made healthy choices, most of the time. But I wasn't exercising anymore. And it showed. I started putting on some weight again (and not muscle, this time). My weight crept up to about 170. Then I met my boyfriend... we enjoyed going out together, introducing each other to our favorite restaurants (and their usually high calorie specialties), and drinking beer/wine. The unfortunate thing is that meant I put on a little more weight. Now I weigh in at about 180 pounds. And I am not happy about that. I need to get back into gear, so here I am.

emoticon for your support on my emoticon blog!! I completely understand how you feel - between quitting smoking last September, the holidays, and meeting my BF in November, I'm really struggling with the weight I've gained. Good luck!!

Hey! Thanks for the comment on my blog. Girl, that mindset change is HUGE. Weight loss will come as you continue in practicing the right mindset. You can do it--we can do it! :) Glad you like the analogy of a "messy room" --I guess I've had experience with (literal!) messy rooms, so was an easy analogy to make :p (But, hey, I'm much better with the (actual) messy rooms too! I think so much better when things are orderly & in place! lol. ) Hope you have a great evening! emoticon
