jsfantome's Journal, 02 August 2013

I don't much like being overweight. Nor do I like this yo-yo effect from not paying much attention over the last year. Regardless of the reasons why - this rollercoaster ride is my LAST!

I think back to when I reached my goal - and how I felt, and how I looked - seriously, I would (and will) give up A LOT to get back there again!

I'm not sure that I will ever really understand - I just want to be able to live, eat, love, play, exercise and enjoy... LIFE. That's it. Nothing earth shattering. No marathons or ironman's... not that there is anything wrong w/ that (if you are so inclined). I'll even respect you, admire you, envy you...and cheer you on. But that's not me.

I simply long for the day again - when I stand in a dressing room and feel OK w/ putting on clothes that aren't trying to HIDE something, and instead I am just either happy w/ the way the clothes look on me - or not.

Went shopping yesterday - can you tell!!!!

Much Love!

Hi it's Andrea. I'm back on Atkins too. I regained all the 80 lbs. I lost and now I'm back on diabetes medicine. But I've lost about 20 lbs. this month - only 95 to go! Love your post!

Paula, I understand where you are, I feel the same. Seems like we are going through similar trials and stresses. Keep looking ahead and be kind and true to you :-)

Paula, I hear you. I am back too and working on getting it all off this time. No more small goals... just going for the big loss. It will be a goal that is a lifetime commitment this go around. No more lollygagging or playing at low carbing. You will be fine eating this way. Just don't beat yourself up... just live the life an do the dance along with the rest of us. :)

awwww I'm so sorry you're going through this.. I gained about 50lbs back!! Just know that you are not alone (I know that doesn't really help much)... but you will do it.. In the mean time go to walmart and buy some CHEAP but pretty clothes lol.. I did that, just bought a few You won't feel too guilty about buying them because they are cheap anyway :) . Chin up, it'll get better - you WILL get things under control again..
