I'm not sure I ever left, but am ready to hit it hard again. I lost those first 65lbs so fast and for once in my life I just felt revived to live my life like I've wanted to for so long. I was able to get out and hike for miles, run, bike and not feel like a sludge doing it.
Some of you may have followed me on my photo blog and as you know I've had an amazing summer and fall doing photo trips I've been wanting to do that for a long time and just getting out and exploring the places I've been putting off because I felt I wasn't ready. My attitude now is let's just do it and if I make a mistake then I'll learn from it.
I can't say I followed a strict diet, but then again I didn't sit around and watching TV either. Did I gain weight? I'm at the same weight before the last time I blogged. I've probably had my ups and downs, but I've learned from Sparkpeople not to beat myself up for having a binge here and there and to keep active. If there is one thing I am sure of is that I can maintain and not go back to my self destructive eating habits.
I'm don't necessarily like spending hours in the gym and that's what I did the first 65lbs. I enjoyed this past summer doing outdoor activities. With the winter cold coming on, I found myself getting stagnate and so I forced myself back in the gym. I'll admit a few holiday cookies can take their toll on you. One of my goals this year is to take up snowshoeing. I figured it was a great way to get some good nature photography done.
I know that some of you have been pinging me and I really appreciate it. It's allowed me to keep sight of my overall goal which I have not accomplished. Time to hit it hard again and meet that goal. I'm so inspired by the progress you all have made! Keep up the hard work. See you at the finish line!
