Well I got a bit of a reality check today. I know that I've gained back the weight I lost, but today was a huge eye opener of how much.
We're having a sales meeting for all of our North America reps so I am with a group of people who I haven't seen since the last meeting in September of last year. I was about 20lbs lighter at that time. When I first saw my colleague Amy, it was like she was taken aback by my appearance. Amy's a sweetheart and she recovered quickly, giving me a hug and saying how nice it was to see me again. But the damage was done. I could totally see in her eyes the "holy cow (no pun intended) - Kristi's gained some lbs!!"
Like I said, I know this, but seeing that expression on someone's face was just like a slap in the face. It was a mixture of surprise, pity and to be honest, a little bit of disgust.
I need to get my act together.
Maybe this is the catalyst I need to get motivated and get myself completely back on track. I've been doing just a halfway job for the last few months where I'm exercising regularly, but I'm not watching my calories in.
Tonight will be the test. I did a great job on my eating today, I didn't get a chance to work out cause I was in meetings all day, but if I can keep my eating in check tonight, I'll consider it a success.
I don't want to see that look on anyone's face again.
