Disappointed with BIG numbers?!?!

Tuesday, June 25, 2013

So I weighed myself on Friday and weighed in at a whopping 295. This is the heaviest I have ever been. I have lost weight in the past, but NEVER able to sustain it. I fell in February, badly sprained my ankle, and put on 20 more pounds. In September, I started college, My kiddo started a new school, my Grandmother died and we moved. In May I graduated with my BSW (Social Work). We have finally settled into our little apartment (my 6 year old and I). My kiddo is not changing schools again, but is struggling. I have not yet received my paper BSW, so I don't know what to do for jobs... and today is day four of my juice only intake. For 4 days I have only had organic, or freshly made juice. and I weighed in today at 284. I have not been working out, I hate the heat, and in Maine it has been 90+ degrees for days now. I guess I am happy with my weight loss so far, I am just disappointed that I let it get so out of control. I need to view this as a modeling experience with my son, and to show him that hard work really does get you things you want (this is a lesson I don't think I ever learned. I always gave up or didn't bother beginning.) Maybe I can teach us both? and maybe I can lose half of my weight? I just don't know how not to fail. I am awesome at procrastinating, making excuses, failing and never taking on new endeavors.

    While a juice diet may jump start weight loss, it's not healthy nor sustainable in the long run. Start exercising, and make healthy food choices, and the scale will go down. It's a journey that is hard but well worth it.
