Pounds from the past.
Monday, January 20, 2014
I'm sure we've all lost weight and put it back on, and then some.... But I've been wondering, how many times have I lost that same 5-10lbs over and over again? I'm sure that it's too many times to count, to many times to even try to remember. But I've found it even more pointless to dwell on the loss and gain of the pounds from the past.
Why is it so easy to give up? Well, if it was easier to do the harder things in life, we'd all be skinny! I used to be one of those girls that could eat whatever she wanted and not gain a pound, then I got into my mid 20's and my metabolism went buh-bye! I still kept my diet the same, and put no effort into being active, thus packing on the pounds. I went from wearing a 0, and now I'm wearing a 13. That happened over a span of 3-4 years.
I'm coming to terms that I'm sure I've lost those same pound over and over again, and it's teaching me a lesson. If you fall off that "wagon" don't beat yourself up, you gotta dust yourself off, and hop back on. I need to get over getting mad at myself, and just giving up. I have to find that motivation to feel better about myself, be more comfortable in my own skin. I'm taking baby steps, and I am seeing some changes. It's going to take a while, but I'm pretty sure it's going to be different this time. I'm in it for the long-haul!
