Bringing back Determination

Friday, June 07, 2013

I had a very emotional moment today at work, and it made me remember who I am and who I have the potential to be.

I'm not going to lie. I've been struggling to stay focused the last year. Every time I think I've found my footing, something slips me up. And by something, I mean my own weaknesses. The 'just this one time' or 'it's a special occasion' or 'I'll be good tomorrow' has been waaaaaaaaay to prominent in my thinking.

When I went to the doctor in November, I had gained back 21 pounds of the 57 I had lost last year. I've now lost I had regained and a little more, but I've never really got my focus back. Basically, I've just been maintaining a weight loss and not making any progress on losing more. All because of said mentality above; however, today I hit a breaking point, and I remembered how to be dead set STUBBORN. And, dead set stubborn is what I'm going to be until I lose these next 50 pounds.
