Riding the rail of the wagon

Monday, July 30, 2012

Like all people, I have a difficult dieting. I've recently decided that I am not going to be on a diet, I am on a life's journy.

This past weekend started out great. I stayed on track and didn't have issues, then Sunday came. I was working on homework and was stressed. So to avoid the homework I started to eat. It was healthy items for the most part, but then I craved chocolate and I wanted dounuts or a bagal, otherwise I wanted carbs and lots of them. So.... I caved in and had the carbs I wanted (no dounuts though). I ate candy and chips and yes I felt good eating cause it took my mind off the issue of homework. But when I was done eating the homework was still there and I wasn't closer to being done.

I finished my night up with a PBJ sandwich and went to bed with the thought of tomorrow is another day and just because I didn't eat right for a few hours doesn't mean my effort is for nothing. It just means that occasional slip-ups occur and I am wiser for them.


Beginning again!

I have battle my weight all my life. My first diet was at the age of 7 with WW. Other diets followed, many not so healthy. Then I got sick of being the big happy jolly girl and just wanted to be normal.
So at the age of 19 I decided to have Gastric Bypass Surgery. I was thinking that this could change me, and it did. I lost the weight and was happily down to 185. I felt awesome at this weight. I looked skinny! I kept it off for 6 years, then life came and bit me in the butt. I had to move back in with my parents due to the economy and have lived with them for three years. My weight has gone back up to 286.

One day I was reading a friend's post on F.B. and she had lost 75 pounds. I was proud for her due to her being a heavy gal too. But it also made me think that if she could do it, being a bit younger then me, then why can't I.

This is how it begins again. Losing weight not because my parents want me to, or wanting to fit into a dress, or meet a guy. I am doing it for me this time. I will suceed in my efforts not because I am being told to, but because I want to!!!!!!!!!!!!!
