Finally Weighed Myself and Wow What a Wakeup Call!

Thursday, October 08, 2015

So far my motivation to be back on spark, and eating three healthy meals for the day has been going good, and I am slowly getting more and more excited about starting this journey again. It's a little upsetting that I let myself go the way I did when I was doing so well maintaining my goal weight 2 years ago (can't believe its been two years..) but life happens and all I can do is just do what I gotta do to get healthy again.

Yesterday, I went to a friends house, and decided to weigh myself using their scale. I don't have a scale at home, which is a purchase I need to make. I stepped on that scale and I was NOT expecting the number I saw. Of course I know I've gained weight, but I don't feel like I weigh as much as the scale told me. I was in a state of shock for like 5 - 10 minutes, and then I got mad lol.

Even though I have already been trying to get myself back into a healthy routine, if I wasn't already, stepping on the scale and seeing how much I weigh now would have been the slap in the face I needed to push me to lose this weight!

I am hoping I can motivate my friend and she can help motivate me too because we are both trying to get back to our healthy lifestyles like we did before when we first started spark! So yay us!

    seeing is believing....can't be in denial anymore, that's why I don't get on my scale too often. I was sick and lost 7lbs in 6 days but it all came back in short order

    The ah ha moment for me happened much the same way. Weighed on a scale while bored at the dr's office and it glared back at me with the highest weight I ever carried. I rejoined Sparkpeople the very next day.

    Good luck with your program...You can dot it!

    sometimes that scale can really smack us in the face!
    I do the same thing. it has taken me so long to get back in gear.. after I was doing so well and I had lost weight. now I am fighting to get the weight off again.
    the most important thing is now your head is back in the game and you know what you need to do.
    I am so glad to see you back!!! I know you can do it!!!
