Hi all...so I am still around :) but for this last year I have had a really hard and difficult time. Lots of family issues and things and of course the only thing I have trained myself to do is to eat...
I am sorry to say that I have gained back most if not all the weight I had lost last year...I haven't weighed myself yet...
I have decided to try again. I loved how I was looking and feeling last year, all the energy I had. So I will be starting again on the 9th.
I will weigh myself (not looking forward to seeing the actual numbers).
I also will be trying to retrain myself in times of crisis to write in a journal and read the Bible instead of turning to food.
Jan. 9th will start a 30 day cleanse.
Thank you to all who have stuck with me and I hope this time will be the time!
So! April 8th was the one year mark for me...although the last 4 months I haven't been doing the diet...and I have gained a bit back...I still have lost a total of 65 lbs in this year!
I started at 380lbs
And finished out the year at 314lbs
Here is the first pics I took:
and here I am a year later:
I started out the year going good and reached 90 lbs lost in 8 months. Then the holiday's came, some family stresses, and just general life happened and I fell off...I gained back 25 lbs. But looking at the year in total. I have done a good job!
So now here we are on the second year...and I am renewing myself to get back on this journey...
I loved the progress that I made last year and miss losing and I don't want to go all the way back...
I can't really pinpoint why I am struggling so but I am determined to keep trying...I am praying.
So today I restart my 30 day cleanse...it is where I stick to the diet completely for 30 days...and don't go over my sugar intake.
I want to start taking my monthly pics again...and losing again! I want to get my energy back.
I have learned through this year, I can't let myself go completely off this journey because getting back on is really, really hard. splurging every once in awhile is fine but staying off for any length of time is not...this really is a lifestyle change and not just a diet for a little while!
