If you try you will succeed!

I’ve decided to put together a blog of tid bits from old blogs to see how far I really have come since the first entry to sparkpeople!
I had many failed attempts at losing weight but I would just get back up and try again.
Saturday, January 01, 2011: “I know i can loose weigh because i have done it before but i get lazy and bored of it and just quit.”
Sunday, January 02, 2011: “I thought about going for a walk but i actually got distracted trying to figure out how to edit my sparkpeople profile......”
Friday, January 07, 2011: “So today is the last day of week one! I think i have done very well for my first week! I worked out 6 days a week for about 20-25mins per day and i did not have any junk food until today . I told myself if i made it to day 7 i could indulge in one thing. My mom brought home ice cream bars and they were small dark chocolate vanilla ice cream bars 280cal each.”
Saturday, January 08, 2011: “I just recently had a miscarriage and i have been taking a lot of my anger and sadness about the situation out when i'm working out and it helps. I was so scared of reaching 300 pounds when i was pregnant i do not want that to be the case the next time.”
Thursday, January 13, 2011: I feel awesome!!! Even though i am taking it slow and can't see any results yet i still know that what i am doing for my body is great! I had blood work done last week and glucose and clhestoral where normal.
Thursday, June 16, 2011: “I think i've lost 5 pounds maybe but not much :( Then last week I started working again and by the time it's cool enough to walk I am exhausted and all i want to do is lay around UGH!!”
The day everything changed. Monday, January 09, 2012: “I am serious about losing weight this time. Why you ask? Well I had hit a few breaking points in the end of last year. 1.Little girl tells me I need to loose lots of weight 2.Friend uses me as a comparison to a "really big lady" as in like "She was bigger then you!". 3. A guy on a dating site told me I needed to stop killing myself and turn on biggest loser and last but not least all the countless pictures off myself that I look as big as a blue whale in. NO MORE EXCUSES! I am 22, never been in a real relationship with a man beyond getting used for sex. I can't find love if I do not love myself, and right now I hate myself. I don’t understand why I had to be one of the unlucky ones.”
Tuesday, March 27, 2012: “I actually work up a sweat! My knees sweat and I don't ever remember that happening lol. I use to claim "I don't sweat." LIES! haha I sweat and I love it!”
Thursday, March 29, 2012 : “Last night I went to stay over with my friend and he had a box of krispy creams which is a very rare thing to get around this town. He offered me one and I instantly refused. Although the box sat by my leg for what seemed like FOREVER! I contemplated on eating it several times. Even thought maybe I'd have just a tiny piece to get the taste. But really who just has one bite of such a delicious thing? He asked one more time if I wanted it and I once again refused. At that moment I was very very proud of myself. If I can say no to a krispy cream I can say no to other temptations.”
Friday, March 30, 2012: “I debated with myself for about an hour before I decided I better get my ass up and go. I pouted and slouched the entire time I was getting my work out clothes on lol.”
Sunday, April 01, 2012: “Now it's Sunday and I have had my heart rate going like crazy for over an hour. I use to barley get 15 mins of exercise in before I called it good. It feels really good to have your heart rate going and finish covered in sweat. I feel accomplished!”
Monday, April 02, 2012: “I remember last year my first go around on this hike I was about dead by the time I got done. This year i was tired but felt pretty good for just hiking 3.24 miles! I am very proud of myself on how far I've come!”
Wednesday, April 04, 2012: “Yesterday I went to McDonlads for dinner. I looked at the menu over and over. What could I get that would fill me up and not pack on an extra 1000 calories? I ended up getting the oatmeal. 290 calories I believe.”
Thursday, April 05, 2012: “I was determined to lose weight so I never had to be afraid to be 300lbs ever again. Well life got in the way and 2011 wasn't a good year for weight loss. I tried to be active and eat right but gave up many times. I just didn't have to drive I do now.” “So with hard work and better eating I am now down to 257! I can't even remember the last time I was in the 50's.”
Saturday, April 07, 2012: “I went out for dinner last night with friends and I ordered a grilled chicken sandwich and a salad. When I got my food I took off the bun and added the breast to my salad.”
Saturday, April 08, 2012: “Easter is my cheat day. I ate small portions but still had some of everything. The only thing I didn't have was cake and a awesome looking banana pudding that had real cream on top, not to mention the cake was home made.”
Monday, April 09, 2012: “On Saturday I accidentally took to much salad and a few people almost had to go withou. They were like we are out of salad already? and here is my plate almost covered in it, I tried hiding some of it with my slice of pizza LOL!”
Friday, April 13, 2012: “I will try to get back on track and work my ass off just as much as before! I know I won’t gain all the weight back in a day but I just feel sluggish and tired.”
Sunday, April 15, 2012: “Seriously where did all my weight go!? I know I have been trying really hard this year and on and off last year but I'm still in denial about all this weight loss. I've never lost weight like this before.”
Tuesday, April 17, 2012: “I will be completely happy with an xl shirt and a 16-18 jeans. Here is another motivator so bring it one! I don't feel as if I'm trying that hard anymore, but i know I am. It has become my way of life more so than a "diet". Being healthy is so much more rewarding and I plan to keep it going.”
Wednesday, April 25, 2012: “I am more and more happy each time the scale goes down and somebody tells me I look good. Why stop now? So the resolve of this is, learn to love yourself then you can really believe that someone can and does love you.”
Thursday, April 26, 2012 “So before I really got into losing weight I found a pair of jeans that I loved. Skinny jeans to be exact. I tried them on knowing they wouldn't fit because they were 3 sizes too small. I barely got past my hips and thighs and by the time i got them around my waist they were at least 6 inches away from getting button. So I try these jeans on about once a week and this week I got the buttoned!”
Tuesday, May 01, 2012: “Now that my lower back is defined you can actually see my curves! Really curves??? and not rolls lol. AHH I'm so happy I weighed in at 236 today.”
Thursday, May 03, 2012: “I WORE MY GOAL JEANS YESTERDAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
!!!!!! Size 18! I haven't been that size since high school. Went from barley fitting a 22 now to a 18. I'm pretty freaking excited about it.”
Monday, May 14, 2012: “I feel like I've failed but I know that is not the case. Now it's Monday and I'm on it again! I'm still in pain but I'm going to try to walk it out later. I know I can continue with this healthy life style and I will.”
Monday, July 23, 2012 “I am now down to 215, that's over 70 lbs from my highest weight! I am wearing a size 16 down from a size 22, and a size xl shirt from a xxxl. It's so nice not to HAVE to shop in the plus size section anymore.”
Sunday, July 29, 2012: “Oh and on a side note, I have lost 10 inches from my waist, 72 pounds from my highest weight and 4 pant sizes! :D”
Monday, July 30, 2012: I am down to 210, that is 10 pounds away from my original goal so now I am going to work towards 180 and continue being healthy and whatever I loose after that is topping on the cake. I can't wait to be able to say I am in the 100's. I can't remember the last time I was. Maybe jr high? maybe not lol. Oh and 186 I will be able to say I've lost 100lbs! Only 24lbs to go. I mean come on how many people do I know around me that can say that? Not many so i feel pretty damn good.
Thursday, August 02, 2012: “People ask me what kind of diet are you on? I say no diet just a lifestyle change and believe it or not it's been so much easier then I had always thought. As Nike said Just do it! If I can you can ;)”
Proof to why you should never give up. It really does pay off in the end, you may not think it does in that moment in your life but we all know every bit counts!
