I have not shared this story online before so why am I sharing it now? Because I am gaining weight like crazy. Yep, I am am actually gaining weight. I am already 7 pounds above my lowest weight.
I am sharing because weight loss is a lifelong struggle. You don't just get to goal weight and are magically a skinny person. You don't just stop thinking about it and go on forever able to eat whatever the heck you want. You have to keep tracking, you have to keep your why in mind.
These last 2 weeks I have lost sight of my why and I have stopped tracking and stopped keeping my food journal. Why?! I am going to chalk it up to stress. But in all honesty I got stressed, lazy, and I got tired of having to do these things. I was pissed that the last 10 pounds have been so difficult to take off. I was being a spoiled baby and thinking I wish I could just eat like everyone else. Well 7 pounds later I know I cannot stop tracking.
I have to recommit and I am doing that right now. I have already lost 99 pounds, 79 pounds with Weight Watcher's, and I am committing to restarting today. I am not waiting till Monday, or next year or when my clothes get tight, I am starting right now.
I promise will share more about my weight loss journey in the future but for now please know that the struggle is real and if you are struggling too, I am with you, I hear you. Recommit today!
