You what!?!!?....Yeah, I did

Thursday, August 16, 2012

So I posted this to my FB and thought I'd share here.

I've not been doing so hot for a few months. I moved and slowly became less active which resulted in an 18 lb gain!! Granted I did weigh myself, either day of or day before my period, I felt terrible!!! The scale said 202! I could not believe I let go like that all in a matter of months!

When I moved I got rid of a lot of my clothes, you know, extras for when I have those fat days, anyway...it has been so hot and humid here and having gained the weight I didn't even want to get dressed and go out with my clothes feeling tight from the gain and sticky because of the humidity. I think my lack of discipline has really got me in a rut and I started feeling really depressed. To add to that I'm unemployed, can't find a job and in the last two days got rejected by two different jobs. Good news tho, school starts in on the 28th and i just found out i got approved for work study so Lord willing i will be able to find something AND I think some of that weight was water weight because I have dropped about 16 of the 18. I also got out and ran three times in this past week. Yesterday's run was tough, I had to stop twice in a 3.4 mile walk/jog but I got it done!

I need to keep pushing myself...I miss running, I miss how I used to feel when I would work out on the regular. My birthday is in a lil over a month, I want to look and feel great, I mean I'm going to be a quarter of a century! Kinda big right, I'm feeling kinda old tho lol and I'm not ready to feel like that!

    Hang in there ! I am also unemployed but seeking employment and those job rejections are really tough. I turn the big 30 next year and that is making me feel old......I need to keep pushing myself more so I can reach my weight loss goal before then and at least celebrate that dreadful bday by being in good shape.

    Happy early birthday! I turn 26 on 9/3. It is great that school is starting soon, and I am sure that your job situation will turn around. You can do this!

    I remember the Quarter Century mark...barely. Once you get past the Half Century birthday everything gets a little foggy.
