Are you still at it?" my co worker asked the other day as she told me try bacon dipped in maple syrup. "Yep"I answer and keep blanching fries for day. My co worker is aware that I am trying to take some weight so I can fit into a dress I already have for the wedding I attending this summer. She kinda shakes her head, and tells me to worry because by the end of the summer I will "...lose 20 some pounds because we are just hopping all summer long". This is not the first time that I have heard that I will take weight off in kitchen because we are busy, and barely have time to breathe. I heard this last summer too, and alas the weight is still here. And last summer I did not have easy access to the fry bowl like I do this year.
Being busy means I will not have time to eat, the heat may mean that I don't want to eat, but that is no healthy way to take off weight. I can't just wiggle my nose and poof make the extra pounds just disappear, if people could do that, well, we would all be skinny!
Taking off the weight means hard work commitment, sometimes means that you don't have that slice of cake. It means that you become fitter as you walk, jump rope, swim, etc. Maybe you left weights, maybe you don't. ( Right now I am still mostly in the don't side of things, but I try, sometimes)
I know that most people who try and lose weight, given in or just fall out of the saddle and don't get up. I have fallen out of the saddle, heck sometimes I will say I jumped off, and other times I can say I have been just tossed off the horse completely.
I am still battling my first ten pounds and although, it is not easy, I will get rid of it!!! I have lost some of it, gained it back, lost it again and gained some of it back, its a cycle and I will break it! I have faith in myself, and I know that is not going to be easy but as long as I hold onto the reins and keep my hands and heels down, I'll get through this.
I have friends here on the spark who support me and although I don't take the time everyday to blog, I know that there are people here who will this blog and read it, and for that I say a huge Thank you, because some days the people who post comments on my blog are the ones who keep me going.
