Lost count of days....

Monday, October 08, 2012

I haven't been on since the middle of August. I really don't know what happened and I don't like it. Maybe it was the fact that we got a complaint from the apartment below us saying that there was loud and heavy walking. That was on the day that my daughter and I were working out in my room. That kinda bummed me. Or maybe it was the fact that my mom said something about clothes will look better on you once you start losing weight. She didn't say it in a bad way, but it just hit the wrong nerve. I have never been the one to take complements very well. Or maybe it was that I was pushing myself too hard to fast. It could have been many different things. The most important thing, is that I'm back and I'm taking it one day at a time. I may not be on here all the time, but at least I can track my food and workouts on my phone.

    Great to have you back!!!

I have an apt too. I live above a store which is why I've been making excuses the last couple months but I can't let that hinder my progress. There will always be a road block. It's not about avoiding's about learning to go around them =]

I also hate getting comments from others - or at least until I'm proud of the progress I've been making. I'm not used to them. I didn't receive them as a child so it's hard to accept them as an adult. One thing I've learned over the last couple months - our friends and family mean well and they just want to help but don't know how.

Do it at your own pace but once in a while you need to push yourself a bit further just to prove to yourself that you can do it!!!

    Glad your back. Sometimes people mean well when they make comments like that but it comes out in a way that is hurtful. sometimes it is even just the person's tone. Someone actually commented to me that I will probably have a lot of saggy skin when I lose weight. Who says stuff like that? I am often very sensitive about any comment relating to my weight and am hurt very easily. Isn't it crazy that those are the kinds of comments that we remember...not the good ones. I wish the good stuff would stick with us more than the bad. Anyway. Keep your chin up and keep trying. You can do this.

    Mom's sometimes can say the wrong things, but it's how you feel about yourself that matters. You're beautiful, and just trying to get healthier! emoticon
