But, unfortunately I have not. Since January, I have gained back all but about 16 pounds of the weight I had lost.
This fact makes me very discouraged. Looking in the mirror makes me very discouraged. After all those times I told myself I never wanted to go back to the unhappy person I was.
Honestly, I haven't totally gone back to that place. But, at times I can feel it nudging at me.
I've just misplaced my priorities. It's easy to let other aspects of your life fall by the wayside when you are dating someone. In addition, Brenn's football games, a load of meetings, and other responsibilities make it easy for the weight to begin creeping back on. I'm not blaming anyone for my decisions. I just need to get back on track.
I get so tired. Tired of logging food. Tired of weighing myself. TIRED. There are few other things in my life that I struggle with in the same way I struggle with my weight loss.
But, no matter how tired I am of doing those things, I know they work. I know because at one point I was 40 pounds down. So, it's time to get back on the wagon. Time to start all over.
Because I know I'm a much happier person when I'm taking care of myself.
