First blog

Friday, August 16, 2013

Well here it goes...my first blog...EVER! Feels so weird to talk about yourself. I am inspired by all you bloggers out there. I have recently got into reading the blogs on here and ...wow. What an untapped source for inspiration I have been missing out on! emoticon sooo much to those of you who write them. It's amazing how many shared experiences you can have with perfect strangers!
They inspire me
Help me keep going
And let me know I'm not alone in these struggles!

Well I am getting back into this life long journey of exercising and eating right...again. I don't know what has been wrong with me the past few months but I had absolutely no motivation to work out or log my food. After 66 POUNDS of weight loss I fell off the wagon. Now I feel like I'm starting all over again. So frustrating! And I know I have gained but I am afraid to get on that scale. But I think that is OK. Why set yourself up for disappointent...right? I figure after I'm consistent with this for a couple weeks I'll do the big weigh in. And I'm starving again...trying to stay within my calorie range...yikes! But yesterday I really focused on drinking half my bodyweight in water and accomplished it...
emoticon yay for small victories!
And that definately helped me feel more full from the food I would eat. All in all I am struggling but moving in the right direction. And reading your blogs really helps so I hope maybe I can help someone else. Thanks again! And keep em coming

    Great job on losing 66 pounds! You have all the tools you need... You have already done amazing weight loss. I'm in the same boat... I lost 55 pounds but put back 20 on. I'm trying to get back on track.

    will look forward to seeing your blogs. I started blogging this time around - I have shared my successes, cried about my failures and asked for inspiration, motivation and even a push at times. It has really helped me! I hope you find the same experience.

    Congrats on that weight loss and don't worry about that next weigh in - it's just a number, what is inside is sooooooo much more!
