Dec. 2: Resurrecting the Blog
Lately, my input has been sporadic at best. And it's the same for my lifestyle. I might get partway through the day eating healthy, but the least temptation causes me to cave. I've been wondering all week how I got back to the place I am. I realized how important this blog is, perhaps not to you, but to me: to my motivation, my education and to my resolve.
I'm taking the blog back to it's roots. In the beginning I wrote this to keep myself accountable and to puzzle through the reason that I have never successfully dieted and kept it off. I dedicated it to educating myself about food, and what is in the food-like substances you find in the stores, and to sharing it with you. I traced the footsteps of my weight loss plan and my baby steps into fitness. When I dropped back to just writing once a week, the pounds crept back on.
So today, I'm restarting this 20 pounds heavier than I was in the summer.
Weight: 185 + 17 pounds
Chest: 46" + 5 inches
Waist: 35" + 5 inches
Hips: 43" + 5 inches

So there is five extra inches of me all the way around. Bummer. Just to make myself feel better, I went back to the veeeeerrrrrrryyyyyyy beginning of the journey and copied those stats.
November 30, 2009
Weight: 210 - 25 pounds
Bust 46 the same
Waist 37.5 - 2.5"
Hips 47 - 3"
Well, actually it doesn't really make me feel much better. I'm really surprised at how close the measurements are. My body really seems to want to fluff right back up.
Anyhow, this is a new page in the journey. One year later, hopefully much wiser, I'm re-embarking on a lifestyle change and I'm planning to make it stick this time.
I hope you all will forgive me for my semi-abandonment of my blog and help me to stay on track. I look forward to any and all input, my friends!
I want it. I'm done being the chubby one. I will not give up and I won't quit this time. When I get there, I will still keep fighting to be strong, fit and healthy. I want it and I will get there.
