It's a terrible reality...

Tuesday, May 29, 2012

In January of 2011, I looked like this:

I weighed 220 pounds. I'm not sure what my measurements were.

By the end of last summer, I looked like this:

Everyone was saying how awesome I looked and how dedicated I was.

I didn't know how to manage school, exercise, stress from my life, etc. The sad thing is, I don't really have an excuse as to why I gained 30 of the 60 pounds back. I just stopped. I stopped exercising. I stopped eating right. It's so frustrating.

I'm taking the summer to try to get myself back. I have a race next week that I'm wholly unprepared for, but I'm going to try to get it back this week and next.

I just hate how I was so springy and spry last summer and this summer I feel like a sack of potatoes. Here's what I look like now:

    You've laid it out there and if it's time, it's time!

I'm working on some of this too... gained 10 since my HM last October, and feeling an awful kind of heaviness and no small amount of embarrassment. It's time for That to be over, lol!

Hang in there and work it hard!

    Stick with it and you can get it back. Everyone has ups and downs. You have done it before and can get back to where you want. Hang in there.
