I'm done with constantly falling off the wagon, it's time I seize the day! This time around I'm ready for a lifestyle change while doing things the healthy way. I'm tired of bouncing between feeling sorry for myself and avoiding my problem of being overweight.

Last time I went shopping and tried on clothes in the dressing room I had a breakdown. NOTHING fit and I looked awful. I felt terrible and so I went home and ate. ATE! That's when I knew I had to stop feeling sorry for myself and stop feeling jealous of others and DO something about it!

So I'm being proactive. I know it's not going to be a quick fix. I know it's not going to be easy. But it will be SO worth it to feel like myself again. I'll finally have a reason to do all the things I've always wanted to try, and feel good about myself when doing them.

Motivating Quotes:

~ "If you went running when you first started thinking about it, you'd be back by now."

~ "Others aren't staring at you. They're thinking how they should be running, too."

~ "Don't let your memories mean more than your dreams."

    Hey, I really appreciate your thoughtful comment on my running blog. I have been a little overwhelmed with the comments lately, but I do love reading them all. Endorphins are amazing! I read that they can fulfill the role of the brain chemicals (dopamine?) that are produced by eating delicious-but-bad-for-you food. Awesome.

    Hi! Thanks for reading my blog I really appreciate the support. I wanted to drop by and return the support!

    Yeah, sweets have always and still are a weakness for me. I've learned to be proactive, as in I don't cut sugar out of my life, instead I'm trying to exchange and find better ways of getting my sugar fix lol. In the beginning it was stuff like 100 calorie packs, frozen yogurt, and graham crackers. Now it's fruit. The best way to avoid the temptation is to be compassionate to yourself. I always have sweet snacks around, in the form of a bowl of fruit etc and I let myself indulge whenever I feel like it. And I've avoided being around the hard stuff (cakes etc.) until I felt like I was capable of saying no. It's been and is a long process, but it's possible and I know you are getting there!
