So here it is, the blog of shame. I have tons of excuses, and while I have been using them to forgive myself for gaining back 25 lbs, they are just that.. excuses. I am on a very deadly path of bad habits that have been leading me right back to my old weight. Right now, I'm 14lbs away from that number and I don't want to get any closer.
There are some huge changes required on my part, but right now, I don't have the motivation to change.. which is scaring me. I just don't care.
For whatever reason, I decided to step on the scale today; something I have been avoiding for at least the last 5 months. And there it was... 203. The two hundreds again. A number I never wanted to see.
I knew I was gaining weight.. it's pretty obvious when I try to squeeze myself in clothes because I gave away my bigger sizes, confident I wouldn't ever need them.. but here I am.. needing them.
So, I guess this is my desperate attempt to find a good reason to want change. I see some of my friends on here that supported me in the past, but most of them seem to have disappeared like I did. I don't want to disappear again.

Well.. I thought it was about time that I compare some pictures just to post the changes visually instead of just telling you all numbers.
Here we go..!
Picture is of me 2 years ago in just realized that I have been seriously avoiding pictures of myself for a while.. I gained about another 10lbs but don't have a picture of that..
This is today..!
Still have some work to do.. but am happy where I am and how fair I've made it so far.
Thanks for all your support..!

Wow, ok so I missed quite a few days lol That is just because I am busy doing so many things. I have had a lot of things happen and I'll have to write a juicy, and pretty personal blog about it, because it's nice to get it out there and honestly, I'm really proud of myself and want to share.
This is Week 2 Day 2 on my cleanse and I feel great. Unfortunately I am not having any relief with my sleep or knee/joint issues yet, but there are a lot of positive things happening to my body AND mind that I love. To top it all off, this cleanse has got me off my plateau of weight loss an I am now only 2 pounds away from my pre-pregnant weight! Plus.. that 2lbs will also make me at a total of 30lbs lost! Booya!
Just to clarify, I am not starving myself and do keep track of my calories. I am eating anywhere from 1300-1400 a day (if not more) on this cleanse. I really love that it isn't a liquid detox and is actually setting me up with some pretty healthy cooking alternatives to use as a lifestyle change.
I will aim for my big long blog about my drama for tomorrow, but it is the first day of The Bachelorette.. and that is my guilty pleasure lol
Hope you all are having a happy, healthy weekend (long weekend for those of you south of the border!)

I'm not sure what if it is this cleanse that is making me think straighter, or just my realization that my cruise is in less than 4 months, but I am really feeling like I need to set some weight loss goals again.
My original goal was to lose at least 50lbs by the cruise September 14th. I am halfway there, but more than half way through this attempt as well and I know, the less you weigh, the harder it is to lose. I'm thinking that this goal of mine may not get hit. Especially at the turtles pace I am going at. I need to figure this out.
I'm eating right, but I need to get moving again. I have really let myself get lazy with this whole osteoarthritis thing and I feel like I'm using it as a crutch. I am pretty limited to what I can do right now (until I get the doctors clearance -hopefully in July) but I should still be finding ways to keep myself moving. Even if it is for a small 20 minute walk, or just strength exercises. I need to help this move along because I could be doing so much better.
Lose 10lbs by the end of June
How am I going to do that?
- Stick to this cleanse and after it, try to eat clean for at least 2 of my meals.
- Walk at least 3 times a week for at least 20 minutes but no more than an hour.
- Do strength training on my arms and core at least 3 times a week and light duty leg work
I know I can do this, but I will more than likely need your support out there too to help me stick with it.. need to get this lazy girl off the couch and into a bathing suit!
