It's Been A Very Long Time. I Am Ready To Come Back

Sunday, September 07, 2014

Since my last post, Adam and I graduated with our BA's with honors. I was lucky enough to have a job at a local clinic as a scheduler that I started working the week after I graduated. We finally moved back out. Unfortunately, the toll it took on my body was not good. I am back up to where I began. That's right. I am 330 pounds again. I am not proud of it, but if it's any consolation, I can at least say that I don't look as big as I did the last time I weighed this much. The other good news is that I know what to do and now that I'm back out on my own, and I am once again in full control of what goes into my fridge, I am ready to get this weight back off.

We went grocery shopping today and I am happy to say that a lot of what we bought was healthy fruits and veggies. I also have my stationary bike. I was lucky enough to find one exactly like the one I had before. I am so ready to get healthy. I feel like I've wasted enough time gaining this weight back. At least there was a good 3 years between the last time I was 330 pounds and now. I know that I can get this back.

Tomorrow I am going to get some poster board and make a motivational collage. I'm going to set my goals and keep track and make sure I take small steps. I'm essentially starting over but the only difference is that I'm armed with the knowledge of how to do this. there's no excuse not to do this. I know how to do this and I will do get to my goal weight.

there was a woman I met at the gym who is in her early 30's. She told me that she had lost 80 pounds 3 times. I guess if she did it, I can do it too. I am sad that I gained almost 100 pounds in the course of 20 months, but it will come back off. I just have to start now.

I can do this.

    Yep, you can do it. Many of us are in the same boat, trying to re-lose what we've gained back. But it's awesome you're here and ready to start again. That deserves a big emoticon and a emoticon Keep up the great work!
