BL Winter Challenge Wrap up

Tuesday, February 18, 2014

I went with the old tried and true method of weight loss this challenge: "Eat Less; Move Around More" and did neither.

I started out really well, then Winter & Life hit.... I allowed myself to keep telling myself "I'll do it tomorrow" or "I'll do extra tomorrow" ; allowing myself to fall right back into my old LAZY habits. But I do not consider myself a failure; I will take this as a life lesson and get back on track; Strive to get better. I have done so great so far - lost 55 lbs (gained back 10 of the 65 I had lost since starting this journey).

This is a journey and each event/struggle helps shape us to make the necessary changes we want; You do have to want and I just didn't this challenge but as I quote often

"This Too Shall Pass"!

    Way to go Amy! You are doing awesome. Acknowledging where you fell short and taking corrective action is a sign that you're destined for success. As you said this is a journey and there will be struggles. Plus this winter has been downright depressing. I don't see how people who live in the colder regions deal with the lack of sunshine and excess of wet ,cold, slippery, powdery, and icy stuff, ugh! I've had enough! But Spring is on the horizon and hopefully more "inspiring" weather. Keep on pushing!

    You are not a failure! I'm learning it's about not giving up on ourselves, no matter what.

    It was a tough winter for alot of us. But we are diamonds and we are strong and we learn from our mistakes. We will dust ourselves off and dazzle in the spring challenge!

    Amy I relate to your words. I have a lot of excuses - like the weather and being sick, but the bottom line is it is hard work. I am rooting for both of us to do better the spring challenge! emoticon
