IT's been a long tough road, still going...
Thursday, January 19, 2012
I started my journey to 'get in shape' and it was going so slowly. I wasn't really losing and I ended up way off course. I gained until I weighed more than I ever have in my life including during either pregnancy. I felt awful and tired and my self-esteem was lower than ever.
I have fought and struggled to get on track. I am still fighting and struggling but now I am winning.
Weightwatchers might not work for everyone but it helping me stay accountable and with portion control. To be honest I went to low carb for a while because I do react well to that and I feel amazing while doing the low carb lifestlye BUT I am not ready to give up on many things I do love. (pizza, for one)
Back to weight watchers! And I am doing well, I had a 2lb gain after switching but I am confident I can lose that again.
I guess the real way to lose weight is when you wake up and realize that you want to change your life. I don't want to just look better or fit into smaller clothes, I want to be healthy and stay healthy.
I am realistic now, I know it's going to be slow and I will have set-backs and it's fine.
