Starting in February of 2010, I started a mission to lose weight and get healthy. I accomplished this mission by losing 54 pounds, getting under 200 pounds (since the first time since high school) and feeling great. I really enjoyed fitting into clothes and being healthy. Then something changed in me and I didn’t maintain my new body and lifestyle. I didn’t completely let myself go as I stayed active, but I wasn’t as diligent about food as I was during my weight loss effort. I gained back about 15 pounds and was starting to get down on myself. I was really disappointed that I worked so hard to lose all that weight and then let it go. As I wrote in a previous post, I am determined to get back
The last few days have been great. I wake up everyday with a renewed vigor and renewed dedication to lose weight and get healthy. Its been a couple of months since I was in the right mindset to make every day count. From the moment I wake up in the morning, I have the mindset to make this a great day; exercise, eat right and drink water. Today is “Bike to Work Day” and I did just that. It feels great to exercise in the morning; starts the day off right. I’ve been very diligent about what I’m eating and it feels good to be back on track. BUT….I’m not naive. I know its only been a handful of days and its easy to get derailed.
I’m back to blogging as well. Writing down my thought, struggles and victories is, most certainly, a key to weight loss success. I’m excited at where my mindset is right now and excited to be the best I can be.
