Goonies Never Say Die!

My journey began on 1/1/13. I did great for a few months. Lost 40 lbs, went down a couple of sizes, and felt really great about myself. Then I hit the dreaded plateau. I stayed there for weeks and weeks. Then I gave up. It happened slowly but it surely happened. Over the next 6 months I managed to gain back 10-15 pounds. Fortunately I didn't have to switch back to bigger clothes (cause I got rid of all of them). I tried a few times after that to get back on track but my heart was never in it so ...
My journey began on 1/1/13. I did great for a few months. Lost 40 lbs, went down a couple of sizes, and felt really great about myself. Then I hit the dreaded plateau. I stayed there for weeks and weeks. Then I gave up. It happened slowly but it surely happened. Over the next 6 months I managed to gain back 10-15 pounds. Fortunately I didn't have to switch back to bigger clothes (cause I got rid of all of them). I tried a few times after that to get back on track but my heart was never in it so it didn't work.

Then in March of 2014 my husband and my best friend staged a two person, two day intervention. It was the worst two days of my life. We are all very stubborn people and we fought that whole time. I realize they did it because they love me, and they learned that the way they approached me with it, was not a way that works for me... Needless to say we moved past it, but I came out of it with something to prove.

I decided to give this whole weight loss thing one more chance to work. I've been busting my hump to either lose weight or prove to them both that even with a healthy diet and exercise my body won't let go of the fat. I figured no matter the outcome I'd win either way.

Since that horrible week in March I've had my ups and downs and in the beginning... a lot of downs. Lately though, I can see real progress! I've lost 22 pounds since restarting my commitment in March and overall I've lost over 48 pounds from my heaviest weight! I'm doing great and getting better everyday! I've changed my life for the better and I'm not gonna quit now!

Update 9/13/14
I did the Summer 5% challenge and I did great for the majority of the challenge! Unfortunately like in the past my vacation kind of derailed my routine. Then a new job and a new school year for the kids further derailed my routine. I have been fortunate enough to be able to say that I haven't really gained (maybe 3 pounds) since my lowest weight so far and since then I have been maintaining. Phew!

It's time for the Fall challenge to begin though and it can't come soon enough! I need the commitment to keep me accountable. To push me to exercise daily and to track my food intake! I look forward to seeing how far I can push myself this challenge! Let's go SUDS!!!!

Update 11/3/14
I gave up on the Fall Challenge. I almost gave up on me. I can't do that... EVER! So I'm going to begin again. I make no promises, but I will work toward a healthier me. That's all I can do, everyday, just keep moving forward!
