The journey to lose 20lbs

6/8/2010-I have realized I have gained 20lbs in the last three years. Not a trend I wish to continue! So its back to what I know works.. weight watchers with a little bit of food combining.

I wasn't overweight as a child, well not until I hit puberty. Then it all went pear shaped (literally). There's no mystery. I am overweight because I ate too much and wasn't active. I remember hoarding food, I would go downstairs to the kitchen while everyone was watching TV and gather candy ...

I wasn't overweight as a child, well not until I hit puberty. Then it all went pear shaped (literally). There's no mystery. I am overweight because I ate too much and wasn't active. I remember hoarding food, I would go downstairs to the kitchen while everyone was watching TV and gather candy and take it upstairs and store it in my drawer. To this day I don't know why I did it.

I went through various stages of food addiction/disorders. I would go days without eating and then binge. I once tried to purge but it didn't work (thank goodness!). I wasn't happy with the way that I looked but didn't really try seriously losing weight until the end of high school.

The summer after high school I signed up for an Outward Bound sailing course and had to start walk/running to get into shape for it. That sort of started a health kick and that summer before college I lost 30lbs.

Since then my weight has been within the same 10-20lb range up and down. I have never gotten very far away from exercising but its yet to become a natural thing for me. I'm currently 15lbs heavier than I want to be and have been for about two years now.

I'm 30 now and its not getting any easier but I'm determined.

HI! Thanks for stopping by and commenting on my blog! Congrats on 7 days in!! You can keep this going far into the future, I know it!! Isn't it horrible the unhealthy things we let sneak back into our lives...even after we've realized how unhealthy it is? Let your 'lesson learned' be truly learned in that you will never let yourself waiver in your determination to reach your goal! ~Lindsay

Just cruising through leaving ya with some motivational thoughts for today:

“Challenges make you discover things about yourself that you never really knew. They’re what make the instrument stretch – what makes you go beyond the norm.” ~ Cicely Tyson

“There are two ways of exerting one’s strength: one is pushing down, the other is pulling up.” ~ Booker T. Washington

“If you must begin then go all the way, because if you begin & quit, the unfinished business you have left behind begins to haunt you all the time.” ~ Chogyam Trungpa

Have a healthy week!!!!
