This is really depressing to even write and I can't believe I let this happen.
Well, I started Calorie Counting May 06, went from 170 to 139. I am now up to 159 pounds and have not really counted calories since April 07. I guess I just got lazy after I accomplished so much and started slacking off. One week turned into 2 weeks, then a month, then another... and now over 1 year later I am ready to start being serious again. I know how to do it, I just need to motivate myself to count calories again and drop these 20 pounds that I have put back on.
How in the world did I allow 20 whole pounds to come back on? After all of my hard work? I should have known better! Now my clothes are tight again and I can't get into the jeans that were once loose. It's really depressing actually and I am disgusted in myself that I let this happen. Truely disgusted.
Anyone else in the same boat? I felt so much better about myself when I was counting calories. I felt like a slacker when I didn't. So, I want to be back where I was before. So, starting TODAY I am counting calries again and keeping track of my progress.
My birthday is in two (2) months. September 18th. If I can get rid of these pounds that I had once successfully lost, it will be the best birthday present ever in the world. I pray and hope that I can do it.
I've got 9 weeks. 2lbs per week will get me there. Can I do it? I have re-engaged in 3FC now as you can see and logged in my foods to FitDay as well today. There was a time that I wouldn't miss a single entry into FitDay. I literally had ONE year of logs for every single day. Those were the days that I mentioned above... where I had discipline and determination... where I worked to lose 30 lbs. I was so happy that I was able to accomplish that. I feel the exact opposite emotion now that I have gained 20 pounds back on. It really disgusts me; I can't even express how much.
All I want is to do what I once did with Calorie Counting, support from 3FC, and logging my food in FitDay. If I did it once, I can do it again, right? I wonder how long it will take me this time... it took almost 1 year to lose 30 pounds... what makes me think I can lose 20 pounds in 2 months? Regardless, just starting the progress will motivate me.
Anyone else with the same thing to happen to them? I'm really bummed but also very determined at the same time to get rid of this extra weight I carelessly packed back on. Hope I can do it... but can I really?
