I'm not going to give up!

Saturday, August 02, 2014

I went to an Accountability class at work this week. I didn't learn anything new, but it was what I needed to hear.

I started my new job in the middle of June. I haven't gained any weight, in fact I've lost about 3 pounds. But, the last couple of weeks, I have found myself not tracking my food, eating without thinking. I even skipped two workouts this week. I'm slipping. Slipping down a slope that I don't want to go down.

But, I haven't given up. I'm not going to give up! I'm the only one that I can hold accountable for my weight and fitness. There is no magic pill, or magic food. It's only me and my motivation, my desire, my want. I need to hold myself accountable for my actions. I'm not going back to where I was! And I'm not finished with losing weight.

I need to stop making excuses (too tired to get up at 5am to exercise, too busy to track my calories). The weight is not going to fall off on it's own, but it could definitely come back on its own. I'm halfway to my goal and only 9 lbs. away from losing 50 lbs. before my September birthday.

I'm not going to give up! I'm not going to get complacent. I need to make time, no, I must make time to exercise and track calories, Because you don't get what you want, but you get what you work for. And I'm worth the fight!

    I have been off SP for about 2 months. Every time I slip, I gain weight. This is my first day back since then, and to read your entry says it perfectly. What I need to hear, that I am my only obstacle. I have not been getting up, reading or walking in the mornings. I was doing it daily. I would encourage to keep up your hard work. I had to set my goal weight back a few months, and I want to thank you for your dedication.
