Everything is out of Control

Thursday, August 08, 2013

So I thought about something this week. From the first of February to the First of May, I lost 25 pounds. From the First of May until the first of August, I've lost 3 pounds. Why? Because I've lost whatever focus and whatever drive I had before. I enjoy eating junky, bad for me food. I hate feeling guilty and I don't like going to the gym. But before May, I enjoyed the gym. I loved the feeling of eating food that is good for me. I don't know what has really changed but I know I'm hungry most of the time. Nothing seems to fill me up and I'm eating a lot more. over the last 3 days, I've ate at least 1000 calories over my 2000 daily every day. That's a whole pound of extra gain! I don't know if it's the change in my work schedule or the monopoly game back at McDonalds. My hubby and I just bought Just Dance 4 to try out. So maybe that will help. I told him tomorrow I want to go to the gym, rain snow sleet or hail. At least on the bright side, I haven't gained all the weight back, but if I want to lose more weight, then focus again I must.

    I don't think you're alone in this. I think a lot of us start to see progress (congrats on the 27lbs so far!!!) and then start to wane or think "Well, I already lost X amount, I can be happy here" without remember the solid goal we originally set for ourselves. Maybe go back to the basics- small changes everyday like drinking your water, logging calories regardless of what you eat and blogging on your feelings. Remember why you started in February and DON'T GIVE UP! We all wax and wane a little but you can do it!

    One day at a time. Once you get back on track I bet you will lose well again. Focus on the goal.
