Determined to move forward!
Sunday, August 14, 2011
I'm been too complacent - I started off all gung ho and so determinated that I was going to get rid of all this weight, but the excitement waned and life got in the way. Instead of celebrating my weight loss which should have progressed to the point where I'd lost the greater portion that I had to lose, I'l stil stuck where I was originally. Not a good thing.
Now, I really have to get back on track. i gained everything I lost and probably more. I had a twenty fifth wedding anniversary party to attend for my pastor's and I had a terrible time finding something to wear, I eventually ended up making a skirt. I felt huge. I was huge. When they send out the individual pictures, I'm going to get one printed and put in on the fridge and probably post it here.
There's also another picture from a church meeting showing how far I've gone. It'll be a great before picture.
I am more determined to lose this lard now. There are some other girls at church who are in the same boat, so maybe we can start up a weight loss group with a Christian aspect. I never want to have to wear clothes this size again and I will do it this time.
I'll start this afternoon - my son leaves for a week (which I am so looking forward to) to summer camp so I'll be stopping off at the market to buy all the good stuff I need and I'll have the week to get into a routine before he gets back.
I'm also forgiving myself for letting this go for so long so I can stop berating myself and move forward instead of looking back. Looking back will just move be back, so I'm looking forward and am determined to get there.
