Still trying...

I've been an on-again-off-again Sparkpeople user for years, and for a while, I felt like "I finally got it!" I started exercising regularly in Spring of 2012. I slowly started adjusting my eating habits and increased my workouts. In Fall 2012, I started seeing some serious results. I lost weight, but because I was strength training, I looked better than ever. From January 2013 until June 2013, I was absolutely rocking the healthy lifestyle. I ate healthy.

I've been an on-again-off-again Sparkpeople user for years, and for a while, I felt like "I finally got it!" I started exercising regularly in Spring of 2012. I slowly started adjusting my eating habits and increased my workouts. In Fall 2012, I started seeing some serious results. I lost weight, but because I was strength training, I looked better than ever. From January 2013 until June 2013, I was absolutely rocking the healthy lifestyle. I ate healthy. I worked out twice a week (minimum). I had lost some weight, getting down to about 160 pounds, with a good bit of muscle. By my sister's wedding in June, I was feeling pretty confident. I even felt comfortable enough to wear a bikini at a pre-wedding pool party. But then, life got sort of busy... my workout buddy got engaged and stopped finding the time to work out and before too long, I just stopped going altogether. I still made healthy choices, most of the time. But I wasn't exercising anymore. And it showed. I started putting on some weight again (and not muscle, this time). My weight crept up to about 170. Then I met my boyfriend... we enjoyed going out together, introducing each other to our favorite restaurants (and their usually high calorie specialties), and drinking beer/wine. The unfortunate thing is that meant I put on a little more weight. Now I weigh in at about 180 pounds. And I am not happy about that. I need to get back into gear, so here I am.

Thanks girl! I am excited to be getting close to that BMI range. Kinda weird, the specialist I saw today for my stomach was wondering if I was losing or maintaining weight. I know I blushed! :P I wasn't sure how to answer that! I've been mostly holding it steady and slow loss the past few months, so I told him that. I think he was mainly concerned that my stomach wasn't interfering with my weight. I didn't tell him, I actually would like to lose a few more pounds...like 10! But thats for personal--healthy reasons. :D Ah well, hope you have a lovely evening! Never doubt this: You are one of a kind. Always--beautiful, Of infinite worth and someone sure special! Keep on keeping on spark girl! emoticon

Thanks for the comment on my comparison pic...and girl, I'm sorry that its hard for you in seeing that its a different picture looking back on your past year health wise. Sometimes looking back helps, other times it doesn't (or for too long anyways!) You are here in this moment. You ARE making choices that count, that your body IS thankful for...even though you can't see the results you all want (yet!) they WILL come. I told myself this SO much (& others too!) in my first few months. Each & every healthy choice/decision you make matters & is worth celebrating. Don't undermine their value---and your value! You are SO worth a loving!!! It is easy --too easy- (or for me anyways!) to become overwhelmed by the mountain of work before, (in any area of life) or get discouraged about the unwise choices we've made...but the past is past. Here we are now. You go and rock this moment. You can do it. I'm gonna keep trying my bestest too! (feeling a bit anxious/blue recently:P) Cheering you on emoticon emoticon
