Rock bottom

Standard

Rock bottom…can it get any lower? Why write this post now? I have put it off for the past month can’t I put it off longer? NO it is time to face reality! So drawing on the strength of a friend from middle school and fellow blogger, here. is goes…I weigh 205 lbs. Now you maybe thinking not such a big deal. But to me it has become the anchor around my neck, keeping me at the bottom of this rocky pit. A little over a year ago I weighed 228 lbs. I started jogging/walking everyday and diligently tracking everything that went into mouth and was ecstatic about the progress I made getting down to 182 lbs. Those around me are telling me not to be hard on myself given everything that has happened in my life the last 3 months but the reality is those are excuses and it is time I rise above. So the goal for the rest of April is at least a pound a week, at least 3 days of 30 minutes on the elliptical, and writing what I eat down. The anchor has been untied it is time to start making my way out of the pit. It maybe slow at first but I am hopeful the momentum will pick up.

  1. Proud of you girl and I’m stealing that line for my own personal mantra in my head – the anchor has been untied from my neck!! You CAN get back to where you were (and more) and you CAN be healthy and move forward! We all have to start (back) somewhere and sometimes start over often! The key is to never give up and always to keep trying to be MORE! Keep it up and I’m here for you – anything you need!
