Climbing Back on track AGAIn!

Saturday, March 01, 2014

Since learning that my dream of having my excess skin removed from my abdomen and arms was going to cost close to 20,000 I have been falling off the wagon more and more frequently :( I let myself fall into the mindset of " It doesnt matter how much I lose or how much muscle I build because I will never have the body I can be propud of in a bathing suit" So I ate however I wanted from Christmas unil 2 weeks ago, I still exercised but not daily and I let myself make excuses and get away with it...Finally when my jeans fit a little tight I decided enough was enough!
So here I am again back on track I have been able to exercise and eat right for the past 2 weeks, I pray that i can keep that motivation! Everyone is human....but Im not going to give up on myself again. Happy Weekend SParkies!

    Thanks Guys! I am glad to motivate others, and you're right I need to stop seeing the extra skin as having something I don't want, but as a reminder of where I have been and how hard I have worked! emoticon

    I know this doesn't always help, but you do have a body you can be proud of in a bathing suit. You have worked long and hard to get to where you are. Trust me, there are people out there who can appreciate what you. I dated someone who had gastric bypass and had lost probably close to 150 or more pounds. She had some extra skin, but I still loved seeing her in her bathing suit. And yours came from hard work and determination which gives you that much more to be proud of. It is a constant reminder to see, but it can be a good reminder of where you came from, or a reminder of not having what you want. It is a mindset, but remember what it took to get where you are, you look great now, it may not be perfect, but it is pretty dang good.

    I would have never guessed it cost that much. I can say this, tho: your pictures are a true motivator to us still on the road to wellness. How great you have done. It is a daily issue for me, and I hope you get that spark back under your fire again.
