How/why did I let myself get here!?!

Wednesday, January 25, 2012

When I joined this site in 08 I only weighed in at 208... In 2011, I weighed in at 235. Today Jan 25, 2012, I weigh in at 226. I am so disgusted/disappointed with myself.

I have been working out. I love playing Wii Zumba 2. I also switch up between 30 Day Shred and Slim In Six. Also, I have been eating better and drinking more water. Im trying to cut my weakness of cheese and bread out.

I am determined to lose the weight this year and get to 160 by october 20, 2012. - Im getting married.

Its kinda crazy, I woke up this morning and I feel lighter and my skin feels a bit tighter, but when I went and got on the scale I was up 1 lb. So disappointing.

Right now I just wish I could get back down to 200 where I started at in 08. From there I would gain my confidence back. I just have to stay strong and keep at it. I know I can do it! I just need motivation and support! emoticon

    I just came across this blog today... and thought I would share with you~ I watched a (DVR'd) December episode of THE DOCTORS this week and there was a gal in the audience asking Jillian Michaels the same question. Jillian told her she would solve her problem in less than a minute. The first question Jillian ask was "Do you log your food in daily?" the gals answer was NO.... (I don't know if you do or not, but, it could be just that simple!)

    Sorry to just jump in with advice, but that was Jillian 2~cent answer!

    You can do this, and the pound might have been water retention.

    Do not go where you are....whatever caused the carelessness that
    caused your problem are behind you....
    YOU have your whole future and life ahead of you.

    Trust me, when I tell you, your health is of the utmost importance because I always put it off till tomorrow to take
    care of someone elses needs....now I am suffering serious issues
    because of not caring for myself.

    You can do it....you are on the right track...eating right and
    exercising.....keep it up.

    I am in the exact same place as you except I joined int 2007 at 182 and in 2011 was at 215 and 210 on 1/1/2012 now I am at 209! I wonder the same thing too! HOW in the holy moly did I let/allow myself to get this big. I am sure we both really know the how. So from here on out we will try our best to get where we need to be. The journey will be tough and at times we will feel like giving up but remember to come here SP and you will get the motivation and support you need. I realize now using SP to its full potential makes all the difference. I am on week three and I haven't done so great but I am very grateful for the one pound lost since starting back at SP.

    Keep at it...you can do it! It's great to have a goal like your wedding coming up. Then, when you're tempted to skip a workout or grab that extra cookie, you can think of that goal.
