Ok when It first hit me, gee, i'm getting a little fluffy--I was getting more and more disappointed at the image in the mirror. I decided I didn't want to look like that or STAY looking like that. So I did what every dieter does. Exercise, and watching what I eat.
My problem is I tend to fizzle out when the scale doesn't drop like crazy. It maddens me. I slack off. Then I come back to it.
This time, i did slack off for 307 days. What does that mean? I didn't count calories, i didn't do traditional exercise daily. i was preparing to beat myself up with the pics i took after my little hiatus--and instead i was shocked. i thought surely i would have lost all the definition i worked to get.
Of course I gained like 10 lbs in those 307 days--that is 2 months shy of a year. What amazes me though. I didn't gain 10 lbs of fat. I mean I didn't just revert back to the body i had before I started. Not even close. Which shows there is hope--even for backsliders!
here is a link of how far i have come. I haven't lost alot of weight, but every pound really makes a difference on my body for some reason.
here are the pics: Minigoal--I didn't gain it all back!
I am more motivated then EVER. Because I see the hard work i put in exercise especially REALLY does LAST! And if I keep that up, and I keep watching what I eat, i will be down to my goal weight eventually!
