Why is it so much harder this time?

Wednesday, June 11, 2014

I'm facing a dilemma.

When I first started Sparkpeople nearly 3 years ago, the weight just fell off. This time around, after I gained back all of my weight lost and THEN some, I'm easily discouraged at not seeing the scale move. Yes, I know weight loss is more than a number, yada yada yada, but if I don't lose weight, my doctor is going to yell at me again.

I'm 296 lbs as of this morning. Two years ago, I weighed just over 200. I have NEVER been so overweight/obese. When I first started Sparkpeople, I weighed around 260 lbs. Yuck.

Now, I'll admit, my eating habits are WAY out of line. I need to start eating healthy again, but right now I just don't have the motivation or the budget to purchase "good for me" food.

On the bright side, however, since we moved into town, I've been going on almost daily walks which I've been keeping track of on my Digifit app. I'm starting to ease myself back into DVD workouts such as Jillian Michaels' 30 Day Shred. I just started yesterday, and I'm really just trying to pace myself. After all, circuit training is totally different when you weigh 200 lbs and now 296 lbs.

I'm really just looking for the right diet and routine for me again, and I need constant motivation or I'm quickly going to get off track. My health needs to improve. If it doesn't, I'm just holding myself from endless possibilities.

  Just be faithful with your tracking of both nutrition and exercise and the weight WILL come off. Don't give up!
