Forgetting the fat girl
Wednesday, November 19, 2014
I was looking through some old pictures from 2010 the other day and couldn't believe that that girl was ME. 345 pounds, unhappy in who I was and where I was headed. I try to think back to that girl and its really hard. Its painful. I know how unhappy I was and that is motivation enough to keep working at maintaining. I know how to do it, I've done it. I just need to keep it up.
I understand how its easy to gain the weight back. Its not easy to maintain. I think its more difficult to maintain than it is to lose. Losing is easy. Exercise out, lower amount of calories in. Maintaining is exercise out, good calories in and just enough to even you out, not lose and not gain. Its hard work and if you lose your way for a second, you start to see those pounds creepin' right back on. Sneaky little punks!
I read somewhere that they say you gain about 9 pounds after your wedding. You're happy its over, you might go on a honeymoon and splurge a bit. You relax. HA! Relax?! What is THAT?! I gained about 4 and that was from going out a whole lot more than usual. Gotta reign myself back in! Gotta remember that girl I used to be and never forget how unhappy I was. Because THIS is the life thats worth living!
