Hey ladies,

It's been a while since I've logged in. I think I got a bit too comfortable with life and let myself go into bad habits. I was doing SO well, and then all of a sudden it all got to me.

I just, I really don't know where to start. I've got videos galore, have vegetables on autodelivery so I HAVE to eat them every week, try to take vitamins, try to have a breakfast replacement shake every morning (The Ultimate Meal). But with all the planning and all the allotment and calculation for how many calories are in this and how many minutes I'll need to exercise to lose this, it just gets to be so much.

I get so overwhelmed, then I skimp on the veg, the vitamins, the shake, the exercise. I mean, no one said it was going to be easy. But I have to ask myself, am I even going to like who I am when I'm 150 pounds lighter?

Yeah I might get more looks, I might be "healthier". But I can't say I hate who I am now. It makes me torn. I want to do this for the right reasons, but how I do I know the reasons I have are really right?

Does this make any sense? Ugh. If anyone has some support to help get my butt in gear, I would be much appreciative. Does anyone else ever feel like this sometimes?

Thanks ~3

I do wonder sometimes. I've noticed my personality has begun to change a little as my body changes and sometimes that concerns me. I have those kind of moments but knowing that there will be a lot more opportunities out there for me when I'm fit and healthy looking keeps me going. Just gotta stick with the game plan I suppose. If you find a good enough reason to keep going and keep pushing then somehow it will all work out. At least that's what I believe.

Well only you can answer this, but I can't tell you what a happier and more confident person I have become. Don't even get me started on what a healthier person I've become. My last physical was phenomenal. If you do for only your health alone, that should be reason enough. I don't think my personality has really changed except that I'm more outgoing now.
