I have a confession to make

Sunday, March 18, 2012

I was so flippin burned out on this weight loss thing. I hit my second goal and then basically said effitall. For some people that may be healthy but for me it's extremely dangerous. I was going back to eating foods I shouldn't at least 4 times a week, upsizing meals at our favorite food places and thinking it was ok because it wasn't fast food, not exercising. A lot of the exercise was from getting plantar faciitis, but there's a lot of exercises I could have done. And they took Hustle down to one class at 24hour. So for all of DFW (about an hour in all directions from the middle) if you can't make it to the Sunday class (which I can't) there is no Hustle. I haven't done anything with my certification which makes me unhappy. I've just been blah. Even my facebook group has seen very little of me.
But I stepped back on the scale and realized I'm back up to 212. I can't do this to myself. I can't just give up and go back to how I used to be.
So I'm going back at it but slower this time. I now have 52 lbs to lose. That's the same amount of weeks in a year. So I'm giving myself a year to do it. Diet is going to be the hardest part for me. I need to get back on my shakes, go back to drinking tons of water, and start cutting out sugars again.
And a year from now I will be the smexiest thing you have ever seen. ;p

    I've done the same. I started eating rice again. I was trying to justify it by adding vegies. Starch is starch no matter what you add to it. I have noticed my clothes getting tight and now dread getting on the scale. We can do this!

    You know what? I'm glad to see you back. emoticon I've thought about you and while I'm not very active on the site anymore I wondered how you were doing.

    I haven't gained anything but I haven't lost anything in over 6 months and its drained me. Same as you I went back to some foods tht I had cut out and ate bigger portions and just snacked away the nights, many nights. Anyway. . .

    You can do this. I know you can!! emoticon

    I know this feeling way to well...I wish I didn't. I have the "if onlys" instead of actually doing something about it. I exercise but eat what I want. I no you can do this. You are an inspiration even in the down time because it shows you are human. I can't wait to see what you are going to do with who you are. Your greatness is shining through....let's see what the rest of you holds. emoticon Rock out Kaurakitten!!!!

    You go girl! It isn't easy to do this but you can do it and have come so far! I know you can succeed! We all have setbacks but at least you caught yourself before you slipped too far backwards.

    Girl, I have so been there and done that many times. It's HARD work to eat right and change your habits and SO easy to get back into bad ones. I constantly have to keep a watchful eye on what I'm doing. Forever. It's a pain. But you CAN do it. You are absolutely worth it. Get back on track and get going. We're all here for you. Hugs!
