Going back to where I started!

Thursday, September 15, 2011

Well, the summer is over and I am finally getting a minute to catch my breath and reflect on the past few months. Somewhere, somehow life got in the way of my journey to better health. I haven't done any serious exercise the past few months and my healthier eating habits went right out the window. As a result when I got on the scale this morning I was looking at 201, the dreaded 200's that I have been trying to get away from and I am looking at it again. The only one to blame is myself, I stopped putting myself first and let everything take priority. The funny thing is when I was really working it I felt like nothing was happening, but since I have stopped I can really see how much better I looked and felt. The weight I have gained has went right to my stomach and when I look in the mirror and remember how I looked at the beginning of the summer I can't believe what a difference there is. To all of you out there that are trying your hardest to eat better and get back into shape and feel like nothing is happening, don't kid yourself, things are happening. Just stop for awhile and you will see what a difference there is. So now, here I am at the crossroads again. Trying to get the motivation to begin and the question is where to start. My sister bought me the Dukan Diet book, but I've been the low carb route before and it is very tough. I know this is a little bit different from Atkins but I don't like to restrict food groups, it only causes problems when you stray away. You end up binging on the foods you were avoiding. I guess for now I will take baby steps and try to eat healthier and get moving again. Not to have a pity party but I really don't like myself the way I look right now and I'm mad that I let this happen. I need to backtrack a little bit and find the motivation I need to start again. I know Sparkpeople is the answer. No where else can you find the information and support you need to succeed and it doesn't cost anything. You can't beat that! emoticon

    Kathi!!! Remember how you felt when you lost your 20 lbs! You DID That!! Good for you for opening you eyes and knowing where you "Went Wrong"! I dont do "Diets" Never have, never will! I love to eat food...so if I think I need something thats BAD for me, I have it in small portions.
    You know the same thing happend to me. When my weight started getting put back on, it appears that its all in the stomach. And the worse part- when I lost my weight, my brest went too. The only difference, when the weight came back, my brests didnt!! HAHA So, theres no more balance or lack of noticing my belly cause my brest kind of hid it when I looked down. Not anymore!
    Anyway...enough with my silly self. You have already had a path in the right direction. Turn around and make your way back down it! You CAN DO IT! Find that streghth that got you started last time, and remember its FOR YOU, FROM YOU, TO YOU! emoticon emoticon
