back to fat.
I think I have posted a bit about my difficulty with the calorie levels lately.
The only thing saving my bacon has been the exercise...and even then it hasn't always been enough.
I don't know if you all are anything like me.
Have you lost large amounts of weight before only to put it back on and then some?
perhaps you have been morbidly obese and said to yourself.
If only I could get back down to _________
I would never take it for granted, I would take care of myself.
Well, i don't know about you but I have been thin before being fat (or morbidly obese)
and I remember instances while eating where I would feel that it was too much.
I shouldn't be eating this or that..but went ahead and did it anyways.
Saying to myself..."well, I will just watch it tomorrow."
slowly but surely it would creep...the weight that is.
Tomorrow never came..I never watched it.
Until I would finally shut off that little voice.
The last two or three weeks were like that...I would have three good days and then one bad day.
my good days 'paid' for my bad days.
But I found myself falling back into old habits...
then three days eating on plan, one one off became one on and one off.
Two days ago I had that moment..
The one where you say "I really shouldn't be eating this."
and you do it anyways.
I woke up the next morning and had a little talk with myself.
The talk went something like this..
"Chris, you can do this...you can, through the power of sheer stupidity, throw away everything you have worked for over the last year and a half...you can tomorrow your life away."
You can realize that a bowl of popcorn or a brownie or whatever is not going to make up for the life you chuck out the window through thoughtless eating."
I decided to get back after it today.
Whenever I want something I shouldn't have I say "Is it worth getting fat over?"
that answer is no.
It is easy to take your good health for granted, even if you busted your @ss to get where you are.
You start thinking,
I feel good, NOW I can do what's important, plan fun stuff...clean the house, hang out with people.
Well, you are still important.
Making time to watch what you eat and get at least an hour a day of exercise minimum five to six days a week ...it still has to be the number one priority.
I had to reassert that with not only me, but my family.
it will have to be this way forever...
I'll be rolling out my new blog next week....It will be easy to find.
Hope you all have a great night.
Have a good one,
