I am choosing to forgive myself for letting my weight slowly creep up. I was down to 199 (from a high of 260) back in the summer of 2010. And then I weighed myself during the holidays and was shocked to see 230 on the scale. How did this happen? I had been telling myself that yes, my weight had increased, but surely not more than 215-220. Oi vey! Clearly, my head had been in the sand.
Well, I know what caused the weight gain (stress/emotional eating/loss of motivation to work out) and I am working on fixing the issues that lead me down this path. All I can do now is forgive myself and move forward! With the help of the BLC and a super supportive and amazing team (Yay Mochas!), I know I can do it.
How will I feel when I reach my goal weight? I think, I will feel lighter - both physically and emotionally. I will feel more confident. I will actually like clothes shopping!
