8 weeks!

Hello everyone! I'm still around!! Life has been CRAZY, to say the least. There are so many things going on right now and in the midst of it all I let my running & eating go by the way-side. Bad, I know! Here are a few confessions, I need to get this off my chest!

1. I've eaten whatever was most convenient, not the most healthy.
2. I haven't been tracking my food.
3. I can count on 1 hand how many times I worked out in June.
4. My clothes are too tight.
5. I don't feel comfortable in my own skin.

I can't continue on this path. I have to find a happy medium. I don't not want my weight & health to be a roller coaster for the rest of my life. So I'm going to make a change *once again* before it gets too bad.

I wish there was a way to bottle up that determination I have at times to save for days where I have the "I just don't care" attitude".

I was thinking about my weight and this horrible roller coaster I keep getting on and I have decided I need to get 100% serious about it. It is 8 weeks until my 26th birthday and I would love to be under 160lbs by then! I think that would be the best gift of all!

I know hitting goal [150lbs] by then is not possible, but I think I could really buckle down and lose some major lbs in 8 weeks. I guess it would be helpful if you knew how much I had to lose, huh! I weighed in this morning at 179.5. To be honest I was SO glad that it didn't say 180 or higher! So here's to the next 8 weeks and losing 20 lbs! I know it's a lofty goal...but I think it's more than possible! Wish me luck!

You have been so busy- but hang in there girl! Maybe try to plan & pack lunches on your day off? Just to get in healthier options and not feel so rushed on the days you work? Just trying to help :) You have what it takes to get to your goals! YOU CAN DO IT! :)

welcome back Darci,
I can totally relate to the rollercoaster, I've been the same weight for a year and it's not even my smallest, I 'm so sick of it but sometimes it's just to hard to stay motivated!
I have taken it lately as one day at a time and one meal at a time makes it a little easier to bear.

It is so crazy about how all winter we wish for warmer weather to really work on our bodies...and then we get it and a switch clicks off somewhere and we get into vacation mode all summer!

I've read this in many blogs...and going through it too.

I need to move to San Diego where the weather is the same all year so there isn't an excuse!

I've been on that roller coaster almost my entire life so I know how you feel.

I've seen what you are capable of so I know you can totally buckle down and do what needs to be done.

So come on, girl, what are you waiting for?? DO IT ALREADY!!! =)

Glad to see you back Darci. That is a lofty goal, but sometimes aiming high is what we really need. Give it a shot girl! I'll definitely be here to support you.
