Dent marks in my midsection...

Wednesday, October 10, 2012

Ok, I finally started working out again after falling off the fitness spark planet for about 11 months. The biggest change I have noticed about myself tho is that I got rid of all my oversize clothes and when I noticed that my jeans were so uncomfortable that I had huge dents in my midsection... well I didn't have a fail safe... and started making baby steps to get back on track.
Another change was that I usually would fall off literally until I hit my highest weight and then some and then start the slow crawl downwards... this time - I started that crawl 20 lbs sooner yeahhhhh
I haven't got it all figured out - and I know that when I am thinner - I truly feel better - and the added bonus - I look better and I don't have to search for something that fitssssss....
Already I can now sit in my jeans without horrible discomfort (dent marks are not quite so red lol)
I am truly inspired by my spark friends and so appreciate that I can check in any time and I can feel like this journey is being shared... am excited also to get rid of those dent marks lol....

    I had that "uh-oh" feeling myself this past month...when I realized that the only jeans that fit me were the really, really, really big ones I was keeping around for a weight gain emergency. Then I checked the scale for the first time in a while (I was in denial about the gain) and I knew it was time to get back on Spark. Congrats on your progress so far, and on resuming your program before you reached the top of your range again.

    emoticon Baby steps are great. Set small goals, work towards getting there. For example, with my exercise: I started with shorter workouts before I joined the bootcamp challenge. Now, I'm working towards one full hour of working out. Or breaking the soda habit: I started with 120z a day, 6oz a day, 12oz a week.. I believe if you just jump in, you have a greater challenge to rebound. Start small, make them into habits, then keep adding and pushing yourself. emoticon
