okay back to being accountable.....

Wednesday, November 03, 2010

After my week long vacation in the bahamas and eating every day like it was Thanksgiving I am ready! I have not smoked in 2 months and 3 days and feel great. My trainer moved to Utah where she's from and I am working with a new one. I do not have my true goal weight posted as I was setting myself up to slack off but it is 130. My first trainer helped me to lose the first half of my weight and how appropriate that I am now working with a new one and am feeling recharged and up to losing this last 20 pounds.I got a heart rate monitor for my birthday and it is really pushing me during my cardio workouts to another level.
After being in the grips of a binge eating disorder last year I have been a little gun shy with the whole process of losing weight.Namely the diet part of it. I did not let my last trainer direct my eating at all, though I was under the care of a dietician and also still accountable to my previous trainer.I am going to let go of the reigns and accept some guidance from my new trainer as I am no longer seeing my dietician and have been stable as far as the binging goes and it has been a long time. I want to be physically and mentally happy and that means getting closer to my weight goal while not obsessing.Also that means not using my eating disorder as a reason why I should not accept help or am able to reach my goal. I know I can do this one day at a time.

    I would certainly love a week in the Bahamas even without the "Thanksgiving eating." LOL.

    You are doing great with the not smoking. The worst is behind you.

    Good luck with the new trainer and with your goals.
