Back to square one, but not giving up

Friday, November 12, 2010

Three years ago I took a huge step to get my health under control by losing weight. In a little over 6-7 months I lost 40 pounds and began to change my life...then...life changed for me. It's not easy to make positive changes when so much negativity is happening. I was struggling to find a job, I was barely paying my bills, I was living back at home off and on, and overall was "hating" life. I started to make bad health decisions and now three years later I have gained all the weight back...

Many people at this point would give up and say it wasn't worth it. And for three years I did the same thing. It's sad that it took things going right in my life to realize what I need to do again to make things better, but in the end, I'm making the decision again.

I have a wonderful job now that is paying my bills AND allowing me to save money. I live in a great apartment with a roomate I get along with. Life is better except for the fact that the weight is back. I feel the strain on my body and am seeing the old signs of illness coming back. I took the first step. I went to my doctor and got back on my medications. I have a shopping list to go shopping tomorrow for the items I need to get my eating back on track. The workout DVD's are ever ready. I just have to push myself and I know that once the weight starts to come off the motivation I need to continue with come back.

Yes, I'm back to square one, but I haven't given up.
