Back on the Road Again

Thursday, December 17, 2009

So, I had a talk to my scale this morning and it laughed at me. It told me that I need to learn on how to be a effective loser. Looking at that pathetic 220 on the scale pissed me off but hey, who can I blame? I wallowed in holiday depression for weeks now because this will be the first year without my father for the holidays, don't have a solid job and look like blubber. When I see skinny people, I think back to what I used to look like and wonder what happened to me.

The pity choir has asked the usher to roll down the curtain because the bowing and thank yous are over. I may be doing fifty thousand things but I need to add in the working out.

For almost a week now, I've worked out on Wii's EA Active and it's been pretty effective. I forced myself to change my eating habits and it feels great. I remember why I went on Sparkpeople in the first place. I allowed so many excuses and curve balls to dictate my life thus far and I will not wait for some stupid New Year's Resolution to wait. I started fresh on Monday and it felt great. I'm able to get up earlier, stay up later, move around and after the first days of pain kicked out from muscle soreness, I feel like I gained a part of my spirit back.

I managed to complete 50 per cent of my business website within two days, cut off so many negative people within a month's time and started filtering out negativity. I'm still a work in progress but I'm slowly learning that you can't build Rome in a day. I don't care if I start this journey over ten times from now. As long as I remember to stay consistent and keep trying until I reach my goal AND MAINTAIN IT, that's what will happen.

Thank you for the support here on Sparkpeople. Who knows if I would have made it back on here.

    Hey!!! how are you?!?!

    I hear your pain... I have been doing the up and down the scale thing for two months now. Going between 185 and 195 lbs! I refuse to let it get anywhere near that 200 mark again!

    I think I am just going to try to maintain for now and really get back at it in January!

    I know if I said I was going to eat properly through the holidays, I would be lying... so I will just get my walking and some exercise in and eat a good breakfast and lunch most days and keep hanging in!!

    I am glad you are back and just keep hanging in yourself, girl!!

    Missed you!!

    Glad you told the scale to get in line and the pity choir to take a number. Keep up the journey and glad you've found the track again.

    I'm so happy you're back sista. You're absolutely doesn't matter how many times you start the journey over as long as you keep trying to reach your goal. I know how everyday stresses can deter us sometimes. I'm just glad you're on the roll to pushing forward and not looking back.

    Glad to hear from you!
    I hope you remember how this feels, being back on track, being in control, and getting that high from exercising and being healthy.
    Good luck!
