Starting Over

Thursday, November 01, 2012

I have been gone so long, and it is hard to write this blog, but it's important that I take this first step.

I enjoyed my honeymoon, but it was the first step to not logging in and recording what I did. It was so easy to not think about what I was doing. It also meant there was a steady incline of my weight. As I write this I am admitting to myself that I have gained every pound I lost on the march towards my wedding. I have gained 20 pounds. My clothes don't fit right anymore. I don't feel comfortable. I am sore and exhausted all the time. I can't keep this up.

My goal for the remainder of this week is just to log in and read a few articles. I'll start logging my food again next week. I just need to get back of a pattern of recording what I do, but jumping in doing everything at once is not the answer for me.

I hope to see more of you more frequently now. Time to respark.

    Congrats on the wedding.

My mom told me when I complained about gaining weight when I married my husband, "it's because you're happy". I replied, "I'm not that freaking happy!" When I started dating my husband, I weighed about 140 pounds. By time we were married, 6 months later, I was about 160 pounds. I topped out at 226 pounds. Most of that was after an injury, but nonetheless detrimental to my health. I am happy to say that today, I weighed in at 158 pounds. So if I can undo 9 years of unhealthy eating, you can do it too! Love yourself to get back to where you want to be!!! emoticon

    Starting over is climb. I have done it a couple of times. But I think about it this way...I didn't gain it all in day and it will take just as long to lose it. Good luck on our journey and welcome back.

    emoticon back! You control your destiny. The trip to feeling great in your own skin is so worth the work. Make exercise a daily part of your life and let our weight take care of itself. Optimally find physical things that you and mister both enjoy and do them together. Maybe you both can work toward running a race. emoticon emoticon

    Start with baby steps and work your way up from there.

At least you decided to start over instead of giving up.

Rock on!
