Feeling Better About Myself

Tuesday, May 24, 2011

So one week till I leave for Hawaii and surprise, surprise I have not lost the weight. I was feeling bad about myself for so long. I hate that I let my weight dictate my moods at time but it does. So here I am about 20-25 lbs heavier than I was two years ago. I dreaded trying on my summer clothes but I had to face the music sooner or later. Imagine my shock when not only did my clothes still fit but even my swimsuits! The clothes I had bought for Hawaii two years ago haven't been worn since. I just assumed I would need to replace them all and in fact even bought some new things anticipating this. While eating healthy has not been consistent my exercising has. I took time off after my two foot surgeries but other than that exercising has been a constant. I don't think I've ever gone more than two days straight without doing some type of exercising. I have made it a priority and part of my daily routine just like brushing my teeth and bathing (for the record I've never gone more than 2 days without bathing or brushing my teeth either emoticon. So my hard work and diligence has paid off and I am feeling better about myself. I still want to get those pounds off and I will. This has just given me more motivation to keep working out. Aloha!

    Glad for you Donna! Sometimes the weight on the mind is worse than the actual weight on the scale. Obviously the exercise has put on muscle and made you leaner if not lighter! You can go enjoy the beach and have an umbrella drink. There was some kind of Lava drink(cant recall the real name) with rum that really messed me up before I knew I was drinking. Have Fun!!!!

    So proud of you!!! I HATE exercise, but I'm at the point where I realize I have to do it go get these last 10-15lbs off...guess I shouldn't worry so much about the scale if the weight isn't going to come off but rather the, thanks to you, I'm going to pay more attention to my size, that should help :)
    You know, I've (pretty much) got the eating thing down, you have the exercise thing down...if we could combine us we'd have one very well rounded, but slim, person! :)

    Thanks for the info and the motivation...oh, and HAVE A GREAT VACATION!!!!!

    I am realizing now how important exercise is. I have not been able to exercise to much over the past couple of month due to a injury and I can tell you that weighing the same amount of weight that my clothes do not fit as well now. I will never complain again when I dont see a loss on the scale when I am exercising because I know that the inches are just as important. Hope you have a great time in Hawaii!

    Have a wonderful vacation and enjoy yourself. It is amazing what exercise alone can do for the clothes. I'm trying to get that extra 25 off before the wedding in August. We'll see; I'm not making a lot of progress either, but I am exercising.

    Keep up the good work.

    That's such great news, and a great reminder that losing inches through exercise is just as important as losing pounds! Have an amazing time in Hawaii!
