Up, down, up, down, up, up, up.

My weight has been pretty much up and down since high school, when I first tried losing weight in 11th grade. I lost weight here, gained it back there...blah, blah, blah.

The most I had ever weighed was 205 in January 2011.
The lowest I ever was as an adult was 176 back in December 2011.

Well, my highest has now changed. In August 2013, I had gone back up to about 195. Ugh. Then I was in a motorcycle accident August 20th, and managed to get up to 213 as of last week. I am so disgusted with myself. I was on crutches for two months and just sat around doing nothing, and even now, I can walk but it hurts and is hard for me to go out and walk like I used to, and I can't afford a gym membership.

But, as of today, I am down to 209.4!! I have been eating a whole lot better. Even though I can't really exercise, I know if I just eat right, I will keep going in the right direction. I am also doing yoga, stretches, push ups and using my weights as best as I can with my leg still not 100%. I am proud of myself, while still being disgusted with myself for letting it get this bad. Weird. Ha.

    That cycle of self-loathing isn't weird, it's pretty common actually. Your weight gets out of control for whatever reason, you finally decide you've had enough and start eating better and exercising and you see some success, then life gets in the way somehow and before you know it you're out of control again. But you're definitely on the right path by continuing to eat right and do whatever activity you can instead of giving yourself a free pass to eat whatever you want while you heal and telling yourself you'll get back on track when you feel better. Any forward motion is positive, even if its slower than you'd like.

    Here's to seeing more downward movement on that scale and to a quick recovery! You've got this! emoticon

    Congrats on your weight loss! Remember making tiny changes here and there will add up and make a big impact. Sounds like you are on the right track by not focusing on what you can't do and focusing on what you can. Maybe be doing the exercises and losing some weight, maybe your leg will feel better and you might be able to start walking for exercise. Walking is my favorite! Keep up the great work.
