Well, here I am climbing back up on that pesky wagon once again. I know that it really doesn't matter how many times I fall off as long as I get back up again every single time, but I am really tired. Like, exhausted. However, I refuse to let that stop me. I may very well fall off the wagon again 1000 times before I ever reach my goal weight, but that's okay. As long as I never stop trying I can live with myself.
I am not going to make grand promises to myself that will just make me feel worse if I do fail. I am not going to say that this time will be different than all the other times, because it could very well be JUST LIKE all the other times. I am not being negative or pessimistic, because I do know that I will get where I am going one day. I know that for a fact. It may take 6 weeks, 6 months or 6 years, but my day is coming.

Well, my weight is down lower than it has been in a very, very long time. That is a great thing. The bad news is, I have hit a bit of a slump and I need to break through it.
I do pretty well part of the day, but then in the evening I cave in and eat things I shouldn't. I also tell myself I am just too tired to work out and I promise myself that I will do it the next day, which never actually happens.
Now is the time to stop making excuses. This weight is not going to just do me a favor and fall off, I am going to have to work at it. Nothing worth having is ever easy. But I am worth the time and the effort, my health is worth it and my kids are worth it.

I have been kinda off the wagon for a bit. Not totally off, but mostly. I have been eating some junk food and not exercising, but as of January 1, that has changed.
I have started exercising again (and let me tell you EVERYTHING on me hurts right now), and I am trying to eat better. I am not going to be too hard on myself, but I am going to try and do better than what I was. I don't want to set myself up for failure, so I am going to continue to focus on baby steps.
I really want to look better and feel better and set a better example for my sons.
I have also recently started going to church again. I am feeling so much better about life in general, and my faith has been renewed.
I am very excited about the new year and the new happenings in my life!!!

I have been seriously struggling with my lifestyle and my motivation lately, and have tried numerous times to get back on track. The problem is I would sign up for challenges in different groups, but as soon as I messed up I would give up.
I did alot of thinking over the weekend and realized that I am being too critical of myself, and that I am supposed to be taking baby steps, not going from fat to perfect in one day.
I had to remind myself that if I mess up all I have to do is jump right back in where I left off and do what I am supposed to do, not give up alltogether.
So now I am RE-DONE, giving myself a DO-OVER, and trying to remember that I can have all the DO-OVERs I need in order to get DONE!!!

Ok, so as you all probably know, I have been struggling with my motivation. I have been seriously depressed due to some personal issues that I have been dealing with. I finally went and weighed myself, only to discover that I have gained back 8 pounds. Not surprising, considering that I have been eating like a pig and not exercising.
Well, over the long weekend I did some soul searching and realized that I am going to have to kinda start over at the beginning a bit. I need to go back to the basics, remembering to take baby steps and not give up just because I had a bad day. I am becoming more determined and more organized.
I believe the turn around point for me was giving all of my grief over to God. Since I gave my problems to Him, I feel much more peaceful and happy. Faith is a wonderful thing!!!!
So, now I am pulling my way back up to where I was. I didn't go back to 300-ville, which is a real relief, but it was a very close thing. God is GOOD!!!!
