The Accountability Blog-Day 1

Tuesday, June 19, 2012

Here's my story and boy is it a common one...
Two years ago I lost over 50 pounds and got down to my ideal weight. I was super fit and extremely healthy. Some things happened in my life that were very stressful and I gained every single bit of that weight back over about a year plus about 20 pounds!!!! Go figure I blame it on stress....don't we all have something to blame our bad habits on? There is no one we have to answer to about our size these days except maybe your doctor. But guess what? Most of our doctors are overweight themselves and it is hard to hear them tell us to "loose a few pounds" if they aren't doing that themselves.
Anyhow, In January I started my journey over and have successfully lost 40 pounds again! YAY! Right?!?! But now it's late mid June and I have been going hard at it for over 6 months and still have a little ways to go. Am I getting burnt out you ask? The answer to this question is: EXTREMELY! and guess what? It has shown on the scale these past two weeks. I have gained 3 pounds back in 2 weeks and am no longer at 40 pounds lost....booooohooooo.
My husband has successfully lost over 70 pounds and is still loosing strong...and when he slips up and cheats on our diet he manages to still loose (unlike myself, I gain even I just have a tiny bit of popcorn or half a cupcake at a birthday party).
So, after all this jibber jabber I am going to say that YES this blog has a purpose. This is going to be the start of my new accountability blog. I feel as if I report to you guys about my day (exercise, diet, if I cheat a little or not, blah blah blah) then maybe I will have a higher success and continue to loose the weight I would like. My weigh ins are every Monday morning and I am determined to at least loose the three pounds I have gained back.
My husband and I are shooting for what we call "The Perfect Week"....I wonder if I can make it? I really do....but I am just going to start with "The Perfect Day" and take it step by step, hour by hour, minute by minute. I can do this!!! Who is with me? Let's GO!!!!!

Peace and Love!

    I am sooo with you. If you don't mind, I am going to rewrite your blog, with my own story, so sad, sob! I would like to use your daily accountability idea too . Maybe we should be accountability buddies and get on each other's case if we don't keep accountable. What do you think?
