Default Never ever give up!

I am anti resolutions for this reason: Most people will give them up on the 15th or so. Every day is a new day to change your life!

Last year, I was 250-260 and went down a bit. I have no clue how much. I think I was 14 pounds from my lowest weight. Then life happened and bam! I started to gain. Then I started again. I got down to 230s. Well, life changed again and bam! I'm back in the winners circle. Do you know how much I weigh today? 223.5! (and I am pretty sure my scale isn't broken like the one time where I was losing "3" pounds a day)

I may not have gotten to my goal. But I am at "goal." My goal was to be as close to 214 as possible. I am less than 10 pounds away from 214. And this is past the holidays. The holidays! I lost about 30+ pounds this year.

Think about it. If I gave up up, I would have never seen that number on the scale. I would probably be back up to 275 or something. Maybe even back to my highest weight. I didn't wait for the resolution time. I didn't wait for next Monday. I've started on many random weeks. Sometimes it was just as simple as drinking more tea or using less sugar in my coffee. There was one time I kept saying, well I will get serious next week but I was still be proactive by eating more veggies or something. So in 15 days or 30, when you've had a few bad days, get back on that wagon. Come on! Climb on in. The more the merrier.

If you gained back 10 pounds, it's okay! You're learning. You might be internalizing how you don't feel good at this weight. That's what happened to me in November. My knee started giving out again. I was still at a lower weight but I think I need to start accepting that a sedentary lifestyle will kill me. I'm not even allowing myself to think, "well if I hadn't regained those few times I would be smaller." Nope. I am still smaller on the scale than last January. That is something to celebrate. Celebrate all your victories!

So believe in yourself! You can do this. The only time you are a failure is when you give up completely. I've believed for all these years that I will not be fat forever. I will eventually lose this weight. I know how to do it. And I will do it.

Thank you for such a wonderful post, I like you don't do resolutions. I woke up last year on July 4th with a big day of bbq's ahead of me and decided it was time to get rid of this weight, that's when my journey began.

I look back today and I am 60lbs down this morning. I congratulate you on your success and wisdom. We can do this and will!!

Happy New Year!

I love New Year's Resolutions but they have to be done right and you can't have a "all-or-nothing" mentality. If the first time you come to a bump in the road and you stopped traveling, you'd get nowhere. I totally appreciate your sentiment! Last year I gained 40 pounds overall! And I was so frustrated being stuck a 212! Ha! Wouldn't I love to be back down to that now. But it's a journey. I'm here. I'm ready again.

I think that all or nothing mentality is one of the many reasons I quit when I first lost weight. It was getting harder and I thought I wasn't getting the results I wanted. I didn't make the last few time-based goals I had made and was feeling full of suck.
