I need to start from scratch

Sunday, February 17, 2013

I need to start from scratch. So I have taken some pictures...I should have done this the first time around. In the very beginning of my journey the most recent picture I could find was from my brother's wedding of course I can't find it on my computer so that I can upload it here. I have been on this journey for over 6 years. I am sad that it has taken this long. A few years back I had lost 75lbs and then I let a couple of things in my life get in the way of my weight loss and I slid backwards. When I got back on track I had gained back like 30lbs. Over the past summer I had gotten to 84lbs lost and once again I let life get in the way. This time I have only gained back 10lbs and I have been able to keep it around that mark so I am not in the same boat as I was a few years back. This time I have been very frustrated but I have still been trying and using life as an excuse when I can't hang. Today I went back to the gym by myself so no one could hold me back. I also used the treadmill and upped my game to a run...I haven't been able to do that since June some of you will know this is when I hurt my knee or aggravated an old injury still not sure but it is getting better but it isn't 100% and every time I have tried to run in the last few months it has instantly hurt. Today I was able to up it to a run 3 times for only 1 minute each time but that is more than I had been doing. So today I am starting from scratch again. I am going to take my measurements and I have taken some photos (I think they are disgusting but I am sure they would have been a lot worse if I had taken them 6 years ago) My arms have come a long way but everything else I totally hate. need to work on the tris still but I am loving the bis emoticon I need to melt off the fat in my stomach, I am so wishing I could choose were it disappeared from emoticon. I must go get something to make for supper so I will need to do the measurements later. Fingers crossed this starting from scratch things works for me.

    I can totally relate! I lost 52 lbs three years ago and gained 28 back. Now I have lost 12 more and I'm plugging along with the diet and exercise but the scale is moving slower than the first time around. Hopefully I will remember this when I get discouraged and keep going anyway. Nice arms! Good luck! emoticon

    Wow, that is one muscular arm! You say you're starting from scratch but someone who needed to totally start from scratch probably wouldn't have that much muscle, would they? Anyway, best of luck - you can do it!
