Morning, I finally went back to the gym yesterday. I had anxiety about going back, will I be able to do it, will people look at me and think wow she gained weight. I don’t know what I was so worried about, I was able to do 45 minutes on the elliptical and I did not see anyone staring at me. I tend to over think things and let it get in the way of what I am going after. Well no more. I exercised for 3 days already this week that is the same amount I exercised all month this past month. I am fully committed to this lifestyle change. I am sick and tired of being overweight and tired all the time. I promise I will post a picture I just have to take one. I did weight myself yesterday 244.5 not good, not good at all.
I finally got back on the treadmill this morning. Only got in 35 minutes but it is better then nothing. I was looking at my calendar this morning and I only exercised 3 times this month. That is horrible; I should be exercising 4-5 times a week not 3 times a month. I have a couple things motivating me to lose this weight. We are going to Alaska in August and going on a helicopter/dog sledding excursion. The weight limit to not have to buy a second seat is 250. I am about 245 (will weigh myself tonight) and I want to be way below the weight limit. I also have a doctor’s appointment at the end of June and I want to lose weight by then also.
I have been away for quit sometime and I have missed you all. I have fallen so far off the wagon the good thing is I am ready to pick myself up. Yesterday was not a good day who am I kidding this year has not been good. I gave up sweets for Lent and yesterday I think I ate more sweets then I would have if I had been eating them all along. I feel like total crap today. I am so disappointed in myself. I have not been able to stick to healthy eating and I have not exercised regularly since September. I think my first fall came last March with the passing of my mom. I have just been in a funk since then. I am ready to put all my disappointment behind me and get back on track. I really need to make a lifestyle change. I am going to get back to exercising and eating healthy. Tonight I will take a picture and post as my new starting point. I found in the past blogging really helped me to stay on track so I will be writing more regularly now.
I have been on Weight Watchers for almost 3 years. I started off great I lost 60 pounds. Now I find myself slacking & losing then gaining the same 20 pounds over & over. I have had a weight problem all my life. I am going to lose the last 50 pounds this time. I will not stop till it is dropped.
