In my Man's Hat!!!
Shared Fitness Tracker
My name is Brande; I am 40 years old; I have gained just about ALL the weight back that I worked so freaking hard to lose!!!
I am a very proud mother of 3 children. We live in Bridgeville, Delaware!
I began my weightloss Journey January of 2003....I set a NYE Goal/Resolution 12/31/03.. to Start my Journey to losing weight on 1/5/04.....Met Goal 6/8/2009!! However, I am back to the same song and dance, blah!!!
I began my journey with Atkins, and I Walked Away the Pounds with Leslie, 1 mile at a time, Every single day! Until I could do the 5 mile DVD and not feel as if I worked very hard. At that point, I joined the gym at work. And Fell in love with the Elliptical, My Best Friend =)
I lost all of my weight, by pure determination. I completely changed my eating habits, and became addicted to exercise instead of addicted to food.
My motivational quote I would tell myself:
Food is for survival only, Exercise cures Boredom and Stress!!!
I realized that I had to parent myself as effective as I parent my children. I became "a child" out of control. I had to regain self control, and the first month, I was in MAJOR withdraws!! I drink ONLY water, take multivitamins, and eat "Sensibly"... It hasn't been an easy road...it have had my obstacles.. I've had my relapses where I've gained some back, then had to lose it again... but through it all, as long as you can see the "Goal" in your mind, and you accept that you are not on a time line to lose the weight.. and you stay FOCUSED... you will one day reach your goal. I am now 40, if it takes me until I am 45 yrs old, to get to my goal then so be it.
I reached my goal once, and I can reach it again!!!
It takes, Determination, Dedication, and Discipline... 3 very hard D's, to teach OURSELVES when we are our own enemy.
So Lots of Water, Exercise, and Sensible Eating... Think Before you Bite
My Goal is to get BACK to my goal weight, I am bummed that I have put pounds back on, however, i know its all about of life, and its apart of this journey. The key part to this journey, is to know when to, Get back on the SparkWagon!! I can do it and I WILL do it.
Running back to the 130's baby!
