Looking at myself in the mirror, I wonder what happened to that motivated person? I used to go to the Y for 2 hours a day or more 5 -7 days a week, and I loved it! What changed? Well, I got a full time job teaching - my dream career and have put every bit of my energy into making my classroom and lessons fun and engaging. I get home and I have laundry, dusting, vaccuming, and unpacking to do on top of grading papers and making plans for the next lesson. When all I really want to do is sit myself in front of the TV and stuff my face with supper and whatever comes after - which I often give in to.

Since the beginning of the year I have been telling myself, 2 pounds a week cannot be difficult as long as I watch what I eat and start working out again. Well I have been working out again and I am just about back where I started. I'm not trying to fool myself, but I am. I am still not watching what I eat. I need to change that.

My new goal for myself - taking time Sunday nights to plan my meals for the week. I will add my calories ahead of time and not be influenced by standing in front of the fridge wondering what I should eat, or snacking when I'm not even hungry.

In the end I just want to be healthy again, active, and well.... fit into those jeans that I cannot button anymore.

As the team says it best...........I'm DONE being the fat girl!

    I can really sympathise. It's sometimes really hard to make healthy choices - you obviously really care about your work, and life gets busy too, and it's just hard to find the time and energy for everything you want to achieve. My advice would be to try not to beat yourself up too much - be kind to yourself, make one change at a time, and never give up. You can and will reach your goals.
