Here I go again...

Tuesday, May 24, 2011

I feel like I'm talking to myself since I don't imagine anyone will actually read my blog. But hey, that's ok. Maybe I'll start answering myself too. So, out with it...

I can't believe I allowed myself to become so lazy and put on this weight. I'm still bitter about gaining almost 30 pounds in the months before my wedding, when I had been the same weight before that since I was in high school! By some miracle I was squeezed into my dress...My wedding was beautiful and the pictures are lovely, but I should have felt like I was the best I've ever been. That was 3 years ago in a week. 5/31/08...

Sadly I was in my best shape ever for my brother's wedding which was almost 8 years ago now. I was stunning... bleach-blonde hair, bright white teeth, a golden tan (bad tanning, bad!), and best of all I was slim and toned. I've happily gone back to my natural brown hair, my teeth are still white, and I know better than to tan now, but why oh why did I let go of that slim, toned figure? I didn't even mind wearing... a bikini! *gasp*

Now I'm uncomfortable in anything that isn't loose jeans and a loose top. I have a closet overflowing with cute, trendy clothes that I can't even squeeze into, and even if I can get something on it's so uncomfortable and unflattering I don't dare let anyone see me in it. I think my low self-esteem is made even worse by abandoning trying to look nice since it's such a struggle to feel cute when I feel fat.

The worst part? I think... no, I KNOW it wouldn't take much to get my weight back down. So instead of eating right and exercising what do I do? I snack on anything I can get my hands on like a grazing cow. And instead of working out, even for 15 - 20 minutes, I make excuses... I'm too tired, I have other things I need to do (housework mostly), I don't feel like it, I'll start tomorrow... WHAT?!?

It's true. I am wasting time that I could be feeling amazing and being healthy because of sorry excuses. I have high cholesterol, I'm waiting to have kids until my early 30's, and I have a high risk of cancer and diabetes. I absolutely need to get fit if not to feel better about my appearance, then to take care of myself for the future.

So here I go... today I'm eating right. Today I will exercise. And today is all I need to worry about. Tomorrow I'll start again.

  Good for you! Sometimes the hardest part is actually getting to the realization that you are not comfortable where you are. Best of luck to you!
