Day 5 of my 14 day streak... and 3 months on my journey!

Wednesday, February 19, 2014

It's always about a boy. Well, not always. But a lot of times.

I dated a guy for a short period of time. It didn't work out. I thought I would be fine, but I wasn't. Every time I meet a guy I think, he could be 'the one'. And when he's not, it hurts just a little bit.

We ended it on Sunday. On Monday I spent the evening on the floor of my bedroom, feeling sorry for myself and eating a bunch of junk food I bought to make myself feel better. It didn't work. I felt horrible. I couldn't move. I kept telling myself, get up, you have work to do, it was just one guy, let it go.

So the next day, Tuesday November 19 I threw out all the crap I still had, and decided that day was as good a day as any to get back in shape.

I have been at it for 3 months! I didn't think so far ahead in the beginning, just one day at a time. But now I can say, I am so proud of myself for sticking with it as long as I did, and I truly feel that it will last this time around. I feel better, I look better, and I am learning new things about myself every day.

While I am definitely looking forward to one day meeting a great guy and sharing my life with him, this journey is about me, and learning to be the strong confident woman that I know I am meant to be. She is inside of me, and she is coming out layer by layer, pound by pound.

Thank you to everyone for all your encouragement, and you should be proud of every single one of your accomplishments, big and small.

Today was a good day, I just finished a major project at work that I've been working on for some time, and it felt really good. I did eat dinner later than usual and I was starving so I wolfed it down. But I did not overeat and I will count it as a good day.

Good night all!

    Heartbreak hurts! No way to sugar coat it. As much as we'd love to control our emotions and heart, we simply can't. What we can control is our actions. As much as I'd love to guarantee you'll never have heartache again, I can't. But I can promise that if you relieve your heartache with something other than food- it will heal faster! Exercise does make you feel better. Positive encouragement does make you feel better! I'm so glad you are on here cause this site can really help! Your making great strides in the right direction. Stay strong. Stay positive. You are awesome!

    Can I just tell you how excited I am to read this. Not the part where the boy turned out to be a dummy, I am sorry you went through that! emoticon But the fact that it has been 3 months and you are still going strong. I tried to lose weight so many times in the past... but something clicked this time. It clicked that I needed to do this, and that I had to make permanent changes, and as time went on I realized this time was different. I am so excited to hear that this time is different for you, and all the progress you have made these past 3 months proves it! emoticon
