It's like a song stuck on repeat
You know THAT song.
The one song you fall in love with and then listen to it so much you make yourself sick from it.
My weight is a lot like THAT song and the situation I keep finding myself in.
Granted I don't love my weight at the moment.
Although I have dreams of one day being in that place.
That place of repeat where my weight is in a good place and stays there.
It's no secret at all that I have struggled.
I never hide that from anybody or anything.
I started Skinny Meg's summer challenge yesterday.
I did it because for the first time in a LONG time my head AND heart are both in it.
I am ready to change my life.
I pray for the last time but I am no longer making any promises.
Those honestly get me know where.
Baby steps.

I am praying in three months that I can look back on the following picture and not even recognize the person I see...
Honestly I don't even recognize her right now.
Surely that's not me right?
Yes, unfortunately it is.

Months of not listening to my body.
Months of emotional eating.
Months of constantly beating myself up and feeling sorry for myself.


So you ask what is my plan to become a new and healthier version of myself?

~Stay positive is the most important thing to me.
~Drink TONS of water.
~Use MyFitnessPal to log ALL of my food ALL of the time.
~Get to the gym 3 to 5 days a week but remain active at all times.
~Try my hardest to stay away from night time snacking and week day drinking.

Honestly it's that simple yet seems to be so hard to do at times.

I will be trying my hardest to check in more often because I have sure missed this =)

PS my fav song on repeat right now is...

Happy Tuesday y'all!

  1. I am with you hun. I'm in a very similar situation. I'm up 26 pounds from where I was. Too many bad habits that have sneaked their way back in and not enough exercise! We can do this!

  2. Sigh... I think many of us can relate, BIG time!!! ((((HUGS)))) The bad habits just sneak up on us. First it's not working out every day like I once was, then it was eating out at dinner, then it was eating out at lunch, then it was eating dessert, snacks and sweets. Then it was drinking oh....5 out of 7 nights. Sometimes more. It was just little by little, but it all added up.

    Anywho - I LOVE that you blogged, and that you started the new challenge. I'm not sure what challenge it is, but I am certain it will help keep you focused!!!! I Love your goals/plan. And I know you will succeed!!!

    I am just refocusing (for the umpteen time) again myself. Tracking MFP and WW (value diary app), guzzling water, social drinking MAYBE once/week - actually would love to do the #boozefree thing, training for half marathon, and just started Jamie Eason-Middleton's From Flat to All That workout!!!


  3. So happy to see you posting again! You got this! And we will help support you!
