Long Time no Write

Tuesday, September 15, 2015

I haven’t written a blog post in a really long time. I’ve been logging into spark every day and for the most part tracking food every day, but not really making any attempt to stay within ranges. And not really working out.

I read some of my old blog posts from when I was at my goal weight (145) and from when I was struggling and going all out trying to get back there (at 165)…. It makes me laugh… I’m 184-188 now and I’m like who was that girl? Where is she? Could she come back? I don’t understand how I can be so complacent now, when I was so motivated then. It’s like it isn’t even the same person writing.

Anyway, I kinda wouldn’t mind being that person again. So, I joined a fall 5% challenge and I’m really competitive so I hope it jump starts whatever I need to jump start. And I really need to update my photos on my page – all of the pictures are several years old at this point. Going to try to be more comitted.

    Life changes - and we change too in order to accommodate those life issues. Priorities change, and there are only 24 hours in a day. And now it sounds as though you have come through a phase of coping with other things so you can refocus again. "You" are the common factor in all this - your life changes, your attitude changes, your body changes. You can't become "that girl" again because you are no longer the same person. But you can become a more committed, more conscientious, more self-loving version of you. And it sounds as though it is time for that to happen. Best wishes to you as you move forward. We all look forward to getting acquainted with You Version 2.0.

    Ok, I can do better than :). You weren't the same person & you were. You weren't, in that you were motivated & determined & goal-oriented. You were in that life happens & we slip. It's still you, just less of you. Be your best you Cath. Now! :)
