I can't believe I let this happen

Wednesday, January 03, 2018

Not only back to square one but above and worse. My new all time high weight is 235lbs. almost 15 more than 7 years ago when I last went on this journey.
I am a lifer. I need to remember that this time.

I will not get into all of the reasons this happened. I own responsibility.

I will say though that illness and back pain knocked me off my exercise routines, and depression hit hard returning me to binge eating.
I will say that stress helped keep me there.

I will say that I am not going to make any more excuses but try to get back to it.

I am not getting any younger and my body is reacting to the extra weight very negatively.
In the next few days i am going to do a before picture in black shorts and sports bra. I want to catalog this so I can use it to encourage me as I work on shape and not just weight.

    I'm right there with ya. Lost all my weight 5 years ago and was down to 132. Had a baby and then my dad died, so I did a lot of emotional eating. Up now to 184. We are lifers, that's sometimes hard to remember in the stress times. So know you are not alone. We got this :)

    I gained what I lost last year also, so I'm working on getting it off again.

    Forgive yourself and just start again. Sometimes I restart daily. It gets easier. You can do this

    Think of it like driving. You made mistakes (bad choices). It doesn't mean that you have to quit driving entirely. It certainly doesn't mean, "Well, I messed up I may as well not follow any rule anymore."
    No, it means, stop making mistakes and drive better. That's all.
    It's not a moral failure or a personal weakness. Just do better and forget about the mistakes of the past.
    Cheers.
