Trying to recommit
Nov 01, 2012
Good morning all.
It's tough trying to get back into the swing of OH and connecting with all those that I was once communicating with often as well as be an encouragement for those new to OH.
I can remember that being on OH helped me to stay committed to myself because i found myself encouraging others, which encouraged me.
Early this year I had a big weight gain; the biggest that I've had all year. I couldn't believe I had not only gotten to, but had surpassed my OH SH** number. I got back into a eating, workout and self discipline routine, reached out to my partner in Crime for encouragement (Nikki) and now find myself back to below my initial goal of 150 (today I'm 145) and just 10 lbs shy of my overall goal of 135.
I must say THIS AINT BEEN EASY by any stretch of the imagination but know I am capable of achieving my overall goal and MAINTAINING that goal.....I just have to commit to myself first and be consistent.
What I've been doing lately is a small bootcamp, which is tough but worth it, roller skating and still walking. i want to get back into my Les Mills weight lifting routine, but there are just not enough hours in a day. I think when boot camp is over in 3 weeks and school is over in 4 weeks, I will be able to breath again and make room for my weight lifting.
I must say, life is grand....I can't complain because I am so far from that 234 lb person I was almost 5 years ago. that person had difficulty climbing her stairs, had sleep apnea and high blood pressure. the person today has run in many races, one being a 1/2 marathon, the pouch is still in tact and working (even tho i can eat more today than i could a year or two ago), I still dump thank God.
I hope you all reach back out to me because I NEED YOU. I need to be reminded that we are all in the same struggle, stumbling over the same obsticles and trying to achieve the same goal.
WHEW! Feel like I got a load off my chest
You all take care and be blessed.
