My purpose with this blog is to log my weight loss journey. This is going to be done on Sundays.
For me a fundamental part of a successful weight loss is honesty. But, what does honesty means when you are doing it by yourself? Well although the word does not loses its meaning, it becomes very, very flexible, and with a reason.
As human beings we don’t like failure. Most of us strive for greatness and to be succesful in every goal we set for ourselves. In my case many times I found myself being dishonest to me and making up excuses. This behavior is destructive, because it leads me to a cloudy world of maybe.
I always being overweight. That I can remember, only twice I’ve weighted much less that what I weight these days. Once was during my college years and the other a couple of years ago.
The first time, I lost weight because I was adapting to a new rhythm in my life – full-time student, work and extracurricular activities. But once I got used to that I gained the weight back. The second time was when I decided to join Weight Watchers. With my hand in my heart I can say that Weight Watchers came into my life at the exact moment. The program saved me! I went from 255 to 171 pounds.
Now, you will ask yourself, what happened with her?? It wasnt that the program stopped working for me, not at all. What happened was that I stopped working with the program. I got cocky; I was asked to be a Weight Watchers leader. I felt amazing, like I could do it with my eyes closed.
At that moment, I stopped going to the meetings and gaining weight. At the same time, I felt like a failure and got a little bit depress. I say a little because the clothes in my closet still fitted me, but once I had to go back to Lane Bryant and buy new clothes, then everything got a new meaning.
I’m not saying I found the cure, because let me tell you since January 2010, I’ve being trying to get back on track, and It’s being difficult. Big part of that is that I’m not attending to the Weight Watchers meetings, and I wasnt being honest with myself.
For that reason I decided to seriously start a blog and track, record, every weigh-in – gain or lose. As well as writing how I feel and what I go through while I’m getting back on track.
The journey it’s not easy, and I’m not the first one to do this, – or the last one,- but if by doing this I can help others and myself let it be! Losing weight does not have to be a chore, make it fun!
Follow me in my ups and down. Because I believe that losing weight its more fun when you share what’s happening!!!
