Facing the Fat

I’ve experienced some ups and downs since my last post, but I recognize what I have to do in order to be happy with myself. I’m still lacking motivation to exercise, but I’m doing it anyway. I know that if I keep trudging through that I’ll be glad I did.

I spent most of the weekend at Mom’s house, and I saw family and friends that I don’t get to see everyday, and it highlighted how different I look and feel than I did last year.

Mom has dropped over 50 pounds since February, and our family friend, Linda, has dropped 50 pounds as well. I gained about that much, but they weren’t judgmental because they understand how tough it is.

I know that I have an opportunity to change what I don’t like about myself. I know that I don’t have to choose between being physically healthy and emotionally healthy, and I’m working on improving physically right now because I’ve come so far emotionally over the last couple of years.

I’m eating more vegetables, drinking fewer sugary drinks and dragging myself to the gym. I know that eventually I’ll get back to the place in which I crave the endorphin rush, and I hope it happens soon because I’m tired of feeling like this.

As we close out 2014, I’m holding onto hope that I’ll feel different by this time next year…

    I’m feeling similar to you, but doing less about it! Yikes!
    You’re on the right track – just keep doing your best – look forward, not back.

      It’s hard not to look back, but I know you’re right. I’ll try to keep my eyes looking forward! Same to you, Becky!

    I’ve gained 60 back over the past year and a half. Glad to know there are more people on this boat.

      I’m sorry we’re in the boat, but we’re here..together. Yep. You’re definitely not alone.

    Hi…new to your blog. I lost 40-60 lbs. twice before I found / read enough to get into a nutrition philosophy that I could become passionate about. Once I had that passion, I never looked back. It can be done. It really can. But I firmly believe that educating yourself and finding the right place to put your passion towards…is necessary. AT least it was for me.

    I’d say good luck, but luck has nothing to do with this. 🙂

      You’re right. Luck has nothing to do with it, Gwen. Congrats on your loss.

    Be optimistic that this coming 2015 will be a different year for you. Literally and figuratively.
