I am so glad that I started this weight loss journey when I did. I did not wait until a new year to do it. I did it when reality hit me and didn't put it off one minute longer. I started back in August of 2012. I have had setbacks and slip ups since but I can still say that I am not the same person I was then and will never go back there.
Over the holidays, my husband was off for 19 days. This lead to alot of unhealthy eating on my part and caused me to gain 4 pounds back. Not as much as I had thought it would be by the end of it but still not a step forward. Instead of giving up and going back to my old ways, I instead kept my head high and moved forward. And today, almost one week from starting back on my healthy lifestyle, I have lost those 4 pounds and hope tomorrow at weigh in, I will be another pound lighter and a step closer to my weight loss goal.
I started back in the gym this week also, on Monday. So far, been everyday and got plans for tomorrow and Friday there too. Saturday and Sunday are up in the air. Simply because I am unsure of my husband's training schedule and have to revolve around when I have to go pick him up. He is in the field this week. By the way, I realized that I am really good at being alone and him away. Part of the Army lifestyle I guess.
School starts back next week and so does me going to Zumba twice a week. Looking forward to adding that into my routine. Something fun to look forward to on Tuesday/Thursday 8:30am.
I hope everyone else is having a great start to a great year. The past is the past. Let it go. :-)
