The One Thing I Regret…

Image result for dieting picturesRecently, I’ve noticed just how much weight I have actually gained, over the last several years. I noticed that I am wearing clothes to hide in, instead of clothes that I like to wear. Don’t get me wrong, I knew I was gaining weight but not to the degree as to where I am now. And yes, each year, I tell myself that this will be the year that I’m going to shed some pounds. It never happened and I finally had to figure out why I continue to keep gaining the weight. I would like to put the blame to the fact that I work too much, that I’m too busy taking care of everyone else’s needs instead of my own, not knowing what to eat or how to exercise. That’s all bullshit! The problem is that after all of that, I am tired and lazy and I really like to eat (I love my sweets and I love my Pepsi). And the worst part about it, is that any time I choose to take part in dieting and exercising, I respond very well and very quickly. What I have come to understand is that I am going to have to retrain my mind on how to do things better. The hard part is getting started. Is anyone out there having the same issues? What’s working for you and how are you losing the weight and keeping it off? I really want to know and I would love to hear from you.

  1. I’m always wanting to shed an extra pound or two or five – lol! I also love to cook and bake. It has always been a battle to chose to – do you do what you love or what your body loves? Exercise has always been my fix for this, you know this about me 😉. I’ve always told myself, I exercise on a daily basis to be able to eat a cookie after dinner or to have a glass of wine with dinner. It never hurts to walk an extra lap around the block at night too.

    1. Hi Lisa,

      Thank you for your response. That is something that I have already respected about you. No matter what, you always found a way to take care of yourself and made the time to exercise. I have simply lost sight of who I am and what I am capable of. Hopefully, I will turn things around.

  2. I have always been up and down in weight. It’s always come down to my mental state, and coming to terms with what I truly want. One day I just decide that I have had enough and become very determined and get back into a proper health regime. The response in my body is immediate. I have also decided to spend the year doing me properly. I have been very focused on my career only for about two years now and it’s not serving any other aspect of my life well.
