It’s been a couple of months since I have weighed myself. It’s been over a month since I went to the gym. And it was late may since the last time I was eating healthy seriously and consistently. My biggest fear getting back on track was that I would weigh more than when I started last June. That weight was 266lbs (yikes!) and on this entire journey my lowest weight has 232lbs. I worked hard for those 34lbs. I used My Fitness Pal and worked out 4-5 times a week. There were many reasons why I fell off the wagon and lost control over my diet/exercise plan, but really it was just a matter of self-control and choosing the easy route. Every day I thought about getting healthy, losing weight, and getting fit, but 90% of the time I would choose not to really do anything about it. I enjoyed food; I relaxed on my couch; and I avoided simple acts of exercise. This confession is a rebirth. I admit I didn’t do what was best for me and my body, and I take full responsibility for it. I’m ready to do this. I’m ready to confront the bumps in the road and overcome the obstacles of self-control. It all starts today and the first step is to weigh-in again and share it with the world. So here we go:
Today’s weight (Nov 14, 2012): 256lbs
Highest weight (June 2011): 266lbs
First goal weight (Dec 14, 2012): 245lbs
Ultimate goal weight: 150lbs
Btw, I’m 5’5”
So here’s to new beginnings and being a warrior against the habits and comforts that got me in this situation. I am strong and I can do this.
