Weight Loss #2: Fight The Fat!!

11:47 PM

Hey Everyone!!

It's been forever since I updated the ol' blog. How have ya'll been? I've been super busy with school and work. I hope to get back in the full swing of things very soon. I just got in my items from the MAC Spring Color Forecast Collection, so I should be making a haul post soon. Plus I have some great Lush goodies to show you. Since its still in the beginning of the year, I figured I should update on my weight loss adventures. It's been a long time since I updated on my weight loss. Its going great now..... Confession time!!

 I must admit that over the holidays, I completely stopped watching what I was eating and exercising. With holiday parties, finals, and work I was totally not paying attention to what was going in my stomach. Not to mention, my family loves to eat the non-healthy items during the holiday season. Professionals call this mindless eating, and that's definitely what it was. I honestly was not caring what I put in my mouth. I saw the eating come full circle when I went back to doctor in January for my first weigh in of the year. I gained and I gained a lot!!

I was 10 pounds heavier means that my 30 lb loss was now 20!! To tell you I was devastated was an understatement. But how could I really be devastated when I wasn't putting in the effort to keep my weight loss going? To add insult to injury, I was dealt another blow. This one I can't really speak of because its painful to talk about. But talk about a wake up call. The event that happened clicked something in my head that I must lose weight, and I have to do it now. From that moment on, I was on a mission. I have started doing what I'm supposed to in order to keep my weight loss going. I've started watching what I eat, limiting alcohol, and exercising. I got a Wii Fit for Christmas, and it has been a lifesaver. I now look forward to working out. Its a great tool for people trying to lose weight.

Fast forward to a month later (Feb 2010), it was time for me to go back to the doc to weigh in. 10 pounds are off my body!! To say I was excited wasn't the half of it. I was literally over the moon. No one could keep the smile off my face. Now my total weight loss is back to 30 pounds!!! These 30 pounds are awesome, but I want more!! I'm on a mission to get to 100 pounds loss before the end of the summer. I'm trying my best to keep focused, and that means celebrating wins and losses. Plus, I have a great group of people behind me. Some girl friends and I are starting a weight loss support group, and I think this will help immensely. Just knowing there are people behind you that have struggled and are struggling like you is a great comfort. I'm so glad to be back on the train, and it feels amazing!!

Until next time.....

Hey Kera, thats awesome! I have recently got back on the train after the holidays screwing me up! Its hard but definetly worth it!
And thats awesome that you have people who support you and can talk about things. I find I have trouble with that aspet. I know my family and friends support me and would be willing to talk and listen...but its just not the same as having someone to talk to who knows how you feel.
