So I slipped...

Tuesday, February 19, 2008

Alright, I admit it, I messed up, and I messed up big time. I have almost completely gained back all the weight I lost. I can sit here and make excuses about why I gained the weight, or why I ate something or why I did not work out, but there is no good reason. I gained weight because I did not continue the lifestyle changes I had made. I had some health set backs, but I parlayed those into reasons to eat and not to exercise. I also think I sometimes set unrealistic goals for myself, and then get upset when I do not accomplish them. I am doing it differently this time. I am not measuring my success by the scale, I am measuring it by how I feel and what I do. If I never lose another pound, but I continue my exercise regime and continue to eat healthy, then that is just fine with me. I have never been super skinny, so it is naive of me to think I could be now. I just want to be healthy. That is what is the most important to me!

    I soooo understand how you are feeling. I have been stuck in the same "5 pound" area for months. I probably need another fill, but am holding off till I can get the bill paid down, plus I've had some issues with the result of not chewing enough or eating too fast and I'd rather not be too tight and have to go through the expense of having fluid taken out. I know I am the reason I am over weight and the reason that I have been on this plateau for so long. But, I feel I have improved my eating habits, am exercising more than I ever have in my entire life and in general feel so much better. I have alot of "personal" demons that I still need to deal with as far as self confidence, etc. I would love to see the scale under 200 and hopefully I will someday. I too have never been skinny or even normal (whatever that is) and I know that at my age, after all these years of being over weight, thinking I could have a beautiful, tight "Malibu Barbie" body is totally unrealistic. I have toned up some and feel a whole lot better about myself. I'm not quiting, but instead just want to be healthy like you said. We just need to keep moving forward and take each day as it comes. We can be healthier and we can do this!!!
