Default Confession time

It was the hardest thing I've done in a while updating that weight loss ticker. To go from 166.2 being listed to 206.6 was really hard, but I think the first step in accepting that this was not what I needed to do.

I quit doing portions and started eating out a lot when I started dating someone new because we lived apart, but we were always together and on the run. I just let myself go.

So... now I have a new found motivation to get the weight off and keep it off. I have already proven to myself I can do it, and I'm looking forward to rejoining this journey with you all. You all are part of the reason I could do it the first time and know I can't do it alone.

Thanks for stopping by and reading my rambling.

So glad to have you with us. It's not easy to admit slip-ups, but it'll be better from here on out. Nothing but wonderful success to look forward to.

Hey! On the bright side.... They are happy pounds, right? When I first started dating my now fiance I gained SO MUCH... I mean I am not happy about it, but it was just that snuggle weight. He didn't gain an oz. of course.... But I think half of the battle with weight is cognition and the intensive to start doing something about it and sticking with it. A slip up is ok here and there... as long as you get back on the horse.

I've been there and it's hard moving that ticker up. I gained 25 pounds back of the 80 something I had lost, but now I finally got the 25 back off and a few more. The important thing is you came back

I was on the Atkins diet from July 2011 to October 2012 and I lost 73 pounds. October 15, 2012 started WW's and got down to 255. Gained 25 pounds through the holidays, but got back on track June 2013. Got off track through the holidays again and gained back 10+ pounds

I will continue my journey to the end, no matter how long that takes.

Yes, I regained 40ish of 75ish pounds back. I am glad I did not go back up to my high weight. I just had to get it in my mind what worked for me and know that I owe it to myself to be healthy. Both of my parents passed young and I know I need to do this.

Good job for coming back and getting back on that horse. I know it's no fun going back in and owning up to the weight we've put on. So way to go.
