The jeans don't fit....

Friday, June 10, 2011

Wow....I keep looking at myself in the mirror and wondering how the heck I did this to myself. I have let myself go. Ceased to care...well, now I care. When I go to my closet and none of my clothes fit so I have to go out and buy new BIGGER ones in order to have clothes to go to North Carolina with, yeah, I definitely care. What did I do? At one point I was 20 pounds away from being under 200 pounds. I was so happy and proud. Life is just not kind sometimes and it took all the fight out of me. I have to start fighting again though. I can't keep looking at clothes that used to fit me perfectly and realize they aren't even close to fitting anymore. I have gained back all 40 pounds I lost and then some. Hard to believe...I have to start fighting again. I have to get back to loving the girl in the mirror.

    You did it once, You can DO it again. Just this time, Realize that "It's a Life Time Change". You can't just Lose Weight & Think, you've got it made. The whole Weight Loss Journey includes, reaching u're Goal, then Maintaining it, for LIFE.

    Your 15-18 Lbs Heavier than when you Started this Journey the 1 St Time. Let this be a Lesson Learned that, when you've reached your Goal Weight, that you must(that you HAVE TOO, NO MATEER WHAT!!!)keep the same Level of Fitness & Eating Habits or you'll be Yo Yoing, FOREVER!!!!!

    You know what your Capable of, Just putting u're Mind to it, is going to be the Hardest Thing you'll ever DO.

    Good Luck

    I am from North Carolina (near Charlotte). I lost 60 pounds years ago and then went and gained 40 of it back which is why I joined Spark People. I'm now down 45 and have no plans to gain it back this go around.

    I know how upsetting it can be to gain your weight back, but you lost it before and you can do it again! emoticon

    Been down that road before. I was on Spark for 2.5 years before I really "got it" and started consistently doing things to better my health.

    You KNOW what you need to do; you CAN do this again, because you've done it before.

    If it helps, set a small goal for yourself; maybe losing 10% of your body weight, and focus on that one day at a time. If you have a bad day, pick yourself up, dust yourself off, and do better the next day. You are worth living the best life possible for yourself! Have a strong, healthy weekend!
