It's Been a Long Time

Wednesday, December 12, 2012

I haven't blogged since July. I haven't felt a huge draw to come onto the site. I got tired of making big plans and then everything falling through because I didn't follow through. It's almost embarrassing as I look back at my big plans.

I'm in a good place with my weight. I don't feel desperate to lose weight. In fact, for quite awhile it wasn't even a thought of mine. A wise person told me either I have to work hard on losing weight or stop obsessing about it. I chose to stop obsessing about it.

I have lost about 25 pounds in the last year without trying. I think my portion sizes have been smaller, and I'm in a more supportive environment relationship wise.

I am starting to get the itch to focus on getting healthy again. It's crept up over the past month. I have no extravagant plans. I'm just going to do what feels right on any given today.

I was proud of a small victory this morning. Usually I want to grab breakfast from a fast food place or the school food court before I head to class. Well, today I grabbed two cheese sticks and some snap peas out of the fridge and ate that instead!

    So glad to see you back! Small victories are important, and I think it's a great idea for you to start small and celebrate your accomplishments as you build new healthy habits. Before I finally began this most recent (and successful leg) of my weight loss/ health journey, I had also finally stopped obsessing about my weight and learned how to be more accepting of me-This is the beginning of great things for you!
