I was down almost 20 lbs! I got so excited I gained back 6 of them. Yuck. And yikes!

I was only half-assing my weight loss program, still weighing in, still exercising, but not tracking foods and not exercising to my fullest ability. I'd walk a half mile and call it good ... for a week.

When I started this program I posted all the time on here about how I wanted to hold myself accountable, be responsible and take this seriously. That worked for about 6 months and then in September I went on vacation for two weeks and when I got back completely let myself go.

It wasn't until I got on the scale last Friday and I realized my weight was creeping back up that it occurred to me that I've let it slip away again.

I don't want to go back to weighing over 330 lbs.

I don't want to go back to being winded walking up one flight of stairs at work.

What I do want is to be under 300 lbs so I can use my Wii Fit board that my amazing husband got me for Christmas a year ago (My original goal? To be there by October...which was totally reachable until I started slacking.)

What I do want is to take my daughter for bike rides, and fit in an airplane seat without being self-conscious of the person sitting next to me.

What I do want is to be healthy.

  1. So, have you ever nearly finished a comment and accidently clicked on the back button, losing all your work?


    Er, me neither!

    It can be difficult enough staying on track when you are in your own routine. It's amazing sometimes how easily one can become derailed when leaving your environment, such as when you go on vacation. It can be harder still to return to those healthy routines. I know for me, it's that taste of "freedom" that I don't want to give up... only I lose sight of the fact that it only looks like freedom. It's a seductive trap.

    Best of luck in getting back to your routine. How's that going?

    Thanks for stopping by and commenting. It's nice to have the company!
