This Setback is the Beginning of my Comeback!

Thursday, July 21, 2011

So. . .as it goes, you get off of your regimen and the weight comes back on. So I have gained about 15 lbs back. (It doesn't reflect it on my ticker b/c I REFUSE to change it - don't judge me!!!) How do I feel about it you ask? A little sad, yes. Depressed, HELL TO THE NO!!!! I am still 38 lbs down from where I originally started a little over a year ago so I am very happy about that. Now, I just need to get focused again and do what I did the last time to lose this weight again!

It is so amazing to me how I have progressed emotionally and mentally. This time last year I would have given up and gone back to eating cheeseburgers and fries everyday and just said, "Hey, God mad me this way so I guess I am just supposed to be fat." But the truth is, He didn't make me this way. I made me this way. What He did do is give me the determination and motivation to lose 53 lbs and I am a firm believer that if he did it then, he can and WILL do it now!!!! I have seen me sacrifice, I have been the sweaty monster and I'll be here again all in the name of losing weight that this time WILL NOT come back on!!!!

I am one week back from a wonderful vacation where I got to just lay around and do nothing. In that tine of doing nothing I prayed a lot and ask God to help me like he did the last time. Of course I have been tempted a bit since I have been getting back to the basics, but I have been winning the small battles so I know the war is all mine!!!!

    The point is that you're not giving in to the negativity and are still being positive about it. Way to go and congrats on coming this far .
