Well I let myself go. For months on end. I had just lost motivation. I didn't hardly exercise. I didn't care what I was eating. And I paid for it by gaining 30 lbs. Stepping on those scales and seeing that aweful number just horrified me. It was like a hard slap in the face. This is the biggest I've ever been in my life. Even when I was pregnant with my last baby I wasn't this large. And I've realized that was it. I hit bottom. Hard!
But now I have picked myself up, dusted myself off and recommitted myself to losing this weight. I know it won't be easy and I know that I'm going to have ups and downs but I'm not going to let them stop me this time. I'm going to be more diligent on watching what I eat, I'm going to use the food tracker so I can keep track of what I'm eating and I'm going to make an honest effort to exercise at least every other day.
This happened on Thursday. When I stepped on those scales. I normally don't weigh myself more then once a week but on a whim I stepped on them on Monday. I had to do it several times cause I didn't believe what I was seeing. In just 4 days of reducing my calorie and fat intake and getting daily exercise I had lost 9 lbs. Blew my socks off! And I thought, if I can do that in 4 days. What can I accomplish in a week? In a month? In a year?
Look out world, here I come!
