its a great field to get into :) awww thanks! I’m slacking on it though lol I need to write more often. I love your blog to xoxo
After being in a slump for 2 months, I decided to stop having a pity party for myself and get with the program! Yesterday I went back to the gym which was NOT easy and started weight watchers to get back on track. Starting over sucks, it makes me regret giving up in the first place. Whoever said losing weight was easy has never struggled with there weight in there life. I can honestly say starting over was the best thing I could of done. Even though my whole body ached when I left the gym and I’m so sore today, I know I made the right decision and wouldn’t change a thing! I walked out of that gym with confidence and knew this time I wasn’t going to fail. I woke up this morning sore from yesterday but got out of bed with a smile on my face knowing it’s different this time and how much better I felt knowing I was changing my ways!

you ever wonder why me? why was I chosen to be overweight and constantly struggle with it my whole life? why do I have to be the one who can’t go the beach because I’m ashamed to wear a bathing suit? Why do I have to shop in in the 2 plus size stores in the mall that never have any nice clothes? why do i get denied jobs for my weight or can’t be accepted by society? it’s soooooo annoying having to miss out on so much in life cause I’m struggling with my weight or my weight gets in the way of enjoying life and going out and doing what a normal 24 year old should do! Most people would say I’m having a pity party for 1 but it gets in the way of seeing the big picture in the end. I fail so many times at losing weight because all I can think of is the negative and it makes me want to quit before I even start. It just makes me angry that there’s people out there who will never have to struggle with there weight. No one will ever know what your going through unless there going through the same thing. Iv have friends that said ” just stop eating so much ” ohh okayy let me get right on that I’m sure it’s as simple as that. When you have an addiction it’s not just about food anymore it’s about being out of control and not being able to stop. Waking up and going to bed thinking about food, I always use to say I never knew how people would get addicted to drugs. Well I do now since I have the same relationship with food. I haven’t been to the gym in a month and Iv just been in a blah mood. I don’t want to do anything just stay in bed and sleep. you would think this would be motivation to get back on track but it’s just slowing me down. ughh I just needed to vent on here =/ i know god wouldn’t have given me struggles I couldn’t handle I just would of taken anything else then being overweight !!
im sorry I didn’t see this earlier ! Iv been in a funk lately and haven’t been blogging or exercising, kinda just hiding from the world ya know. I know how you feel! it’s so tough knowing you have to do twice the work, it’s always upsets me and gets me off track knowing I’m three years out and still overweight.. one of my friends said to me ” shouldn’t you be skinny? ” and at first I just wanted to cry and run to the nearest fast food place but then I thought about how I should be down to a good weight and how it was my fault. I always thought what if I did get gastric bypass would it be any different? would I still eat a lot and mess it up? I don’t know the answers it could of been different or I could of gained all my weight back. I’m grateful that the band will always be there to fill, I know people who got the gastric stretched there stomach out after and went back in for the band. Taking it one day at a time is the best thing you can do right now. I know it’s tough believe me I do but at least your trying and losing again! you should
be happy! Anytime you need to talk let me know, it’s easier when you have people going through the same thing! You sound like your doing awesome don’t let what happened before discourage you. i know it’s hard but use it to motivate you. you deserve to be happy and at your goal weight. God wouldn’t of gave us this struggle if he didn’t think we couldn’t handle it =) apparently where tough girls !

What tips and secrets does everyone have to lose the holidays pounds !?
I hope 2012 has been awesome so far for everyone and continues to bring you great health an happiness !

GETTiNG BACK ON TRACK!!
After these couple weeks of all you can eat candy and desserts Iv been in a food coma and woken up with a food hangover ! What people say is true “you are what you eat” Iv never felt more sick and for what? 5 minutes of cheesecake that will stay on my hips for weeks! No matter how many times I tell myself I’m going to regret pigging out I ALWAYS do it. As sad as it was to see Christmas come and go in a flash I’m glad it’s over. Now it’s time for me to get back on track with losing weight and eating healthy !
Iv never been more excited to get back into the gym. It might be a hassle getting there but once you’re there and working out, you feel sooooo much better after! It puts you in a better mood and makes the rest of day less stressful. My goals for getting back on track this week are to get back into the gym, continue P90X and shakeology and plan my meals ! Those might not seem like alot but it’s going to make my body feel better and get me back to my routine and not slack off. I always like to make small and realistic goals I know I can meet. Once I know I can reach those goals I might make bigger goals but never anything I cant accomplish or that would discourage me!
What are some of your goals after the holidays ??
What are some of your tips for weight loss after the holidays or after a weekend of pigging out ??
I say to NEVER wait till “next Monday” there’s no better time to lose weight then NOW! If your determined to lose weight and better yourself you need to take the initiative and start TODAY!!
I hope everyone had a great holiday! Now it’s time to get back on track with our healthy eating and exercising !
