Don't know where else to post this except to my SparkFriends because #1 I know you'll understand and #2 some of you probably have some good pointers/advice.
In August 2009 I started a journey towards better health. I weighed 227 at the time and in 10 months had lost about 35 lbs. I even was selected to do a photo shoot and infomercial which was a blast.
In August 2010 I started seriously training for my first HM and Full Marathon which I completed, but along the way I started eating not as healthy. I actually started eating all the time.
I know as far as physical conditioning that I am in a lot better shape, but I have put about 1/2 the weight back on. I blamed some of it on the long distance training because I just wanted to eat all the time after long runs. Then the holidays came it and I just kept eating because I knew I had a long run coming up and would burn the calories.
I just finished a 15k race a couple of weeks ago with my best miles per minutes for a long distance race (longer than 10k), but seeing some of the pictures posted today I must say I am very disappointed that I let myself put the weight back on even to the point of being disgusted.
Well that's how I feel right now. I run 5k last night at a very strong pace and come home and late night eat extra junk. ARGH!!! I know what I am doing when I do it but for some reason just do it.
Anyway, like I said at the beginning just don't have anywhere else to post this where I feel people would understand.
Feeling a bit discouraged!
