Oh my!

Sunday, July 07, 2013

I have not been here in years...literally. Life has gotten so much more complicated and wonderful. My weight has gotten so much worse! I obviously lacked commitment when I was here last!

Since 2010 I have graduated with my bachelors, completed my very first year as a teacher, completed one year of grad school, adopted a 3rd dog, adopted two guinea pigs, and gained a ton of weight!

Most of those things are fabulous. The weight gain is awful. I mustered up the courage to step on the scale tonight. I've gained significant weight since the last time I was here.

So, what's the plan? Smaller portions, walking twice a day, and shedding these awful pounds.

You'd think seeing all that weight gain on the scale tonight would light a fire under me. It's done the opposite. Now I just feel awful about myself. That makes me want to sleep and eat. This is pitiful.

I'll be up early for a morning walk and track my food tomorrow. Perhaps forming those habits will lead to motivation and determination.

    Huge congrats on the BA and the position. I'm working my way up to that and it's rough. The best part about it? You KNOW that you've set a HUGE goal and succeeded!!! I won't lie or pander. Losing weight is hard. Setting yourself up for successes is A LOT harder than setting yourself up for failure. Just always remember, at SP, you've got a wailing wall, a support team, cheer leaders, coaches, and the cake at the end. You're gonna do great.

    When you feel yourself wanting to give up put out your hand and ask for help
    we all need it at one time or another and there are many of us out there ready and
    willing to help..

    Try not to get so down on yourself.

    It is a huge accomplishment getting your degree and starting grad school and your career as a teacher.

    Now that you have that done, you can now concentrate on your health.
