#143 - Making a Comeback?

Thursday, January 02, 2014

Hi all - Thanks so much for your support on my last blog. I was truly down and out about gaining the weight back. I haven't exercised or eaten healthy at all since that blog, and oddly, I'm ok with that. I believe that I have finally accepted my body for the weight it is at. I'll be honest though, some days are better than others. It's especially hard when I can't button up my work pants, but I am learning that it is a reaction to my lifestyle that I am currently living.

My fiance (I forgot to say that I am engaged now!) has decided to begin losing weight himself. He's at the highest he's ever been and there have been a lot of health issues as consequences. It helps that he is so motivated - it's rubbing off on me a bit.

Anyways, I'm hoping to be back on here as I have missed all of my friends. I won't be on here as much as I used to but I am hoping that a few times a week will help me to stay committed. I'm ready to actually be healthy this time around and hopefully make good habits.

Here are my goals for January:

1. Drink 2-4 cups of water daily.
2. Cook at home more.
3. Work out 30 minutes daily.

**I know there are some people who eat Paleo; are there any websites with good recipes? I am thinking about trying it.**

    Hooray!!! Congratulations on the engagement! It's hard when you find the love of your life and you get 'comfortable weight' gained. I (along with a lot of people I think), gain weight when we fall in love and make the commitment to be together. emoticon emoticon

    Congrats on your engagement!

I find it's much easier to stay on track if you've got someone doing it with you... hopefully the same will be true for you.
