Fall down seven times, get up eight?


So it has been about four months since my last blog post, and a lot has changed in that time. They worst of those changes certainly being my diet and exercise habits. Not only have I fallen off the healthy living bandwagon, I’m pretty sure the damn thing has run me over. Repeatedly.

In the last few months I have eaten completely terribly, stopped taking care of myself, haven’t blogging and I honestly can’t remember the last time I got in a good workout. I’ve also put on 15 pounds I worked so hard to lose.

Now, there is no way in hell I am going to be able to meet my goal of losing 100 pounds in 2013, but I keep telling myself that it doesn’t matter how long it takes me to lose it, as long as it happens.

I know I need to start healthy living again, but right now it seems like it is an impossible task.

My first step was sitting down at my computer and writing this blog post. Writing every day here was so helpful, not only to get my thoughts and feelings out, but to read all of your blogs as well. It was inspiring. I need to start doing bot of these things again. Every day.

I sat down not knowing what I was going to write in this post. I guess I am writing to ask for your help. I need your help and encouragement to get myself going on the right track again. Every little bit helps.

  1. So proud to hear from you!!! So you are up some weight….the easy thing would be to never blog again, hide and keep gaining! Not you though!!! I’m most proud that you are reaching out during the holidays!!! This is a tough time of year for weight loss, it’s dark early, the holiday parties are flowing and life is busy so grocery shopping and planning is more difficult!

    My advice? Get some workouts in, watch what you are eating and keep blogging!!! We all love you!! Xoxo

  2. You’re back! I’m so glad. You inspired me to try C25K back at the beginning of my journey to fitness and weight loss. And now I’m an addict, love my running. Tell me about how difficult it is to keep going though. One day at a time. So what if you don’t hit exactly the weight loss you originally wanted in the time you wanted? Life is what happens while we’re making plans. Think about how far you’ve come! You’ve achieved great things. Keep chipping away at it, you can do it.

  3. It is so good to hear from you. I have actually been thinking about you a lot lately. It’s been a year since I started my journey and I am just now starting to try and work out in a gym – something you were able to do a long time ago! Thinking back on how inspired I was that you jumped right into training inspired me to finally get to the gym.

    I’m sorry to hear that you’ve been having a rough time. I think the good news is that you’ve caught yourself at 15 lbs and you’re still ahead of where you were at this time last year. If you’re finding yourself having a hard time getting back into the swing of things, I suggest starting small and building on making the healthy changes. I know we are complete strangers but I’m proud of you for your accomplishments and proud of you for writing this post! Hang in there!

  4. you can do it!!!! I really enjoyed your progress and being a part of it through the blog, look forward to hearing more!

  5. Just do it! Let me give you the reasons I did not run today..it was cold, it was windy, I didn’t have the proper clothing to keep me warm in said cold and wind. Really it is that I am struggling too and have been for the last few months as well. You inspire me so let’s get her done!

  6. Thank you so much everyone. Your comments really mean a lot to me. I’m sitting here in tears reading them. The kindness some of you are showing to a complete stranger is wonderful. Any for those of you that do know me personally, it means just as much to have such wonderful friends willing to support me in whatever I do 🙂

    Thank you.
