Lost 50, gained 10.

Monday, December 17, 2012

I reached one of my mini goals of losing 50 pounds. Then came the true test of sticking with it through the stress. Oops.

The last month of school, the holidays, and everything in between took me right off track. The bad news, I gained back 10 pounds in 5 weeks. The good news, I know I can lose it. I already came to the conclusion that I work in cycles. This was just one of them. Now comes the cycle of losing. If I gain back 10 pounds for every 50 I lose, I think I'm still doing pretty good, considering. I'm still less than 280, where I was just a year ago.

So a couple days ago, I started working out again. I need to sit down and write out my formal plan. That seems to help me out a lot. Baby steps. I will slowly but surely get healthy. I will accept that it won't be a steady process because I don't do steady processes. I will not be one of those 100 pounds in a year success stories. But I will be a success story. Eventually.

    Just stick with it and never give up or quit because you are so worth it and we are all different and work at different paces and degrees.

    ok .take a deep breathe and let it out slowly . this is called balancing . like water runs down hill and then levels out . now you have to stay with you what worked for you . you can do this . you will go down and then you will gain a few . and then back down . do not give up . it is never ending . you need friends and people around you to talk over daily stress and the whole nine yards . talk it out . emoticon

    I hear ya. I lost 35 pounds and gained back 10-15 (it depends on the time of the month), but it's so frustrating! We moved to a place to where there is no where to walk, I got depressed living out here and have yet to endure another agonizing exercise video since going outside is no longer an option. (We are on a major highway).

    Hang in there, my friend. I am sure you will get back in the swing of things. When you do, take me with you!
