Time passes

Saturday, December 15, 2012

I wasn't planning on blogging today or even for awhile, but then I realized it was exactly one year ago today that I last blogged here. I have spent the year basically doing whatever I wanted food wise. I have indulged and eaten out at restaurants more than any other time in my life. I have not been exercising. My weight has ballooned back up and I have gained back the 20 lbs I lost. I am grateful it isn't more than that. My body hurts and aches. It's hard to get up off the floor. I worry about fitting in chairs. I have spent the last few days making some baby steps back. I have been tracking everything I eat. I have started doing a simple Pilates routine. My knees are in too bad of shape to start any major fitness program. Hopefully as I strengthen my body and start walking, that will change.

Here's to new beginnings....

    It's hard to get back on track, but you can do it. You're already headed in the right direction by tracking and starting your Pilates. I, too, got off plan for awhile and gained back the entire 50 pounds I had lost, plus some.

    It's slow going, but it'll happen. We just need to re-focus and re-commit.

    You are on the right track back to fitness. Making a commitment to logging and exercise has really helped me. A new beginning for me as well. We can do this!

    And you are right. Time passes so quickly. Before you know it, another year is gone. But making some progress each day will assure your day will not pass without meaning something.

    Aw honey, I understand where you're coming from. I did pretty much the exact same thing...only I gained back 60 pounds since April. Geez, I was eating like it was my job or something.
    But, I'm back now, and I'm not going to dwell on the mistakes I made in the past. Cause I can't fix them. I'm just going to concentrate on the here and now, and little by little the magic will happen again. And by magic, I mean Hope. When Hope is renewed within ourselves, then nothing can defeat us!
    I'm glad you're back and just take it one day at a time. It's not easy starting over, I know, but once you start it, and you get a week or so under your belt, things look much brighter--and ohhhhhhhhhhh boy will you ever start to feel better about yourself--both physically and mentally!
    I think it's grand that you're taking those baby steps. They might be small, but they'll get you where you're needing to go all the same. And good job on the tracking. I know if i don't track my food, I overeat. Plain and simple.

    I'm with you in celebrating New Beginnings. We can do this!!
