Beginning again

Friday, June 24, 2011

It has been a really long time. I was up 10 pounds from my average lowest weight (130). My clothes were starting to feel snug. To be honest, some of my clothes did not even fit anymore. I have been wearing my old "fat" clothes. It took me a while to get so mad at myself and fall into a sort of depression. I kind of just go through the work day and come home and read or busy myself with nothing of importance.

What was I doing? How can I live like this? No excitement or enthusiasm for life! Finally, this week I made myself get back on track. I'm almost thankful for the depression. For letting me get so sad that I could no longer live as I was. I'm already down almost three pounds from weeks ago when I weighed in in the 140s. Score! Now I'm motivated!

Working out was seeming like such a chore but I'm slowly regaining that feeling of being strong and confident.

I'm hoping that after this initial week, which seems to be the toughest, I am more committed and really on the right track to living the life I want.

    I so needed to read your blog. I have gained about 10-15 lbs in the past year and just having a tough time. And yeah it's even rougher when you feel those clothes just not fitting like they used to :(

    I have found it to be so hard to pull myself out of this slump. It's like I have dug myself in a hole and instead of trying to claw and fight my way out of it, I am finding myself depressed and this sitting in the damn hole not doing anything about it.

    Thanks for your blog. I really needed to read it and to confirm to myself that I like many others am not perfect and that I will have the peaks and the valleys and that I need to fight if I want to get back to my former self.

    You can do it! I'm in the same situation right now, I'm getting my life back on track but it's either me or the scale that is being stubborn! :P I'm up about 8 pounds from my lowest weight...the clothes I have aren't quite as flattering anymore! :( We can do this, stay motivated and stay positive! You've done it before, you can do it again. Stay strong and confident, remember that it's just one day at a time!
