A Wake Up Call

Monday, May 07, 2012

I started a new job a little over a month ago and love it. So now it's time to get back into the swing of things...

I noticed the scale creeping up into the 180's which is the highest I've ever been. I keep saying that I'll lose it and it will go back down. Then over the weekend this picture was taken:

That's me on the left. I didn't realize how big I've gotten. This same picture is posted on facebook and I wanted to cry when I saw it. Picture is worth a thousand words and in this case it's giving me a serious wake up call.

I have to be more disciplined when it comes to food choices or I will get bigger. I need to workout more often too, but I know food is the big problem. Mainly fast food has been my enemy in this case. I started writing down everything I eat too on a notepad and will add it to SP at the end of the day or every couple of days.

My pants that were once loose on me are starting to get tight again. emoticon My jeans are not fitting well and I feel like I need to wear t-shirts and flowy tops.

It's time to start again and time to get serious about it. I can't have anymore excuses. I'm not happy with my weight right now and I know I can change it.

    I agree with you, fast food is a big enemy that is unfortunately the most convenient choice. But at least you are aware of it and are determined to make change! I read that you are traveling more often for your new job and I know that would totally wreck my diet. All I can say is that one of my coworkers travels pretty frequently, but they will actually pack their food (protein bars, fruit, nuts, etc) with their check in bag. I thought it was a little strange at first, but it is actually really convenient to already have your snacks at hand when in a strange city.

    Congratulations on re-starting your journey and focusing on your goals.

    well, I'll tell it like it is.

    first. you look great. You look very happy and beautiful and I adore this pic of you.

    second, I'm not gonna tell you not to fret because dang do I have those feelings when I see a pic of myself and people tell me not to cry. so instead I'm gonna tell you.

    here's my shoulder beautiful girl, now. Let's get to work on making you happy!!

    Don't get upset. Look at you in the picture, you're with friends, you look happy. Make positive changes in your life and be grateful for what you do have. You can do this!
