The Error of My Ways

Tuesday, June 26, 2012

Last year this time I was enjoying success in Onderland. That actually didn't last long. I went on a cruise with my DH in July and ate, ate, and ate some more. Midnight buffets every night. Food galore! When we returned, I did not return to my good habits. I continued to spiral out of control. I tried to restart with eating healthy and exercising but I just couldn't get motivated to do it. Fast forward to May 2012. I have had lots of false starts up til that point. I hadn't weighed myself in so long because I knew I wouldn't like what I saw. I decided to just see where I was. 232 pounds. Wow! That's all I could say. Wow! I had gained 40 pounds in 1 year. But what is really say is that I gained 25 of those pounds by November 2011. Well, I can truly say that 232 is the most I have ever weighed even through 2 pregnancies. emoticonThis is definitely how I feel. So after weighing myself in May, I decided I had to do something and do it quick because I was headed for disaster. I started eating better, still not totally where I used to be. I exercised once. What a joke. I lost 5 pounds since May and now. I went grocery shopping this morning and stocked up on everything I need to get to work with my eating habits. I exercised this morning. And not something easy. TurboFire 30. I tried to come up with excuses why I shouldn't do it this morning. Like I'll just start tomorrow. Well, I dropped the excuse because tomorrow never comes. As of today I am fully committed to getting to a healthy weight and eating healthy. There is no turning back this time. No excuses. Here we go! emoticon

    Welcome back to the world of TurboFire! It takes a lot of guts to admit to behavior you know is beneath you, and I think that that courage will help carry you through the program and on to your goals. There are one or two other women on the team who recently started, so come by the group page and join the conversation. The last leader kind of bailed, but since Terrie (SASSY2BFIT) and I took over, we are trying to make it a more vibrant and supportive team, and we would love another active buddy like you.

    Actually tomorrow always comes, whether you are doing what you really want or not. Congrats on being able to look at "yesterday" with a smile!

    I like the title and the honesty you have! You can do it and kick it for good! It's ok to jump off for a minute but you always have to get back on! :)
