It’s time again.

So, over the past two years, I’ve been slowly gaining back all the weight I lost. At first it was just a few pounds and it was okay. Then it was 10# and I thought “Yeah, this sucks, but it’s still not too bad.” At this point, I refuse to say how much I’ve gained back, but I will say I haven’t gained back all of it.

So it’s been extremely depressing, but I know it’s my own damn fault because I’m eating too much and not exercising. I just don’t seem to have any self-control lately…over the past year, I’ve probably tried 4-5 times to start being good again, and it lasts anywhere from a day to a week and then it’s back to the bad habits. It doesn’t help that there’s always crap at work and it’s really easy to snack and whatnot. And of course, the upcoming holiday season is not going to make it any easier.

But something has to be done.

I hate (HATE!) going into the closet and it taking forever to find something to wear because nothing fits. All my loose clothes are now tight and I don’t like how anything looks. I liked it SO much better when I could just go in and grab anything and not having to worry if it fits or if it looks good… The sad thing is that I have an entirely new wardrobe waiting for me if I lose 20# (and many pieces I can wear with just a 10# loss, and many more I can wear with a 20+ loss).

Wish me luck.

    We are rooting for you. You can curse your ansestors. You have to be exceptionally and painfully consistent in the eating and exercise. From my experience, it is hard nosed consistency at all costs and before everything else that works in both eating and exercising. You also have to figure out what is driving you to eat more than you need. As grandpa Len use to say,”we always find time for what we really want to do.” If you want to do it, you will find a way and the time. No luck needed—just perserverance!

    love ya,
    dad
