What I have I done????

OK my fellow readers.  If you are still with me I am surprised I haven't been all to good the last few weeks.  Not just with blogging, but with my whole life in general!  I hope all of you haven't been as stupid as me and let yourselves go.  All I have to say is that it was the wrong thing for me to do and I wish I had never done it. 

Life has kicked me in the ass, stomach, head, hell every part of me.  It seemed like every time I turned around, answered the phone, or read my messages it was shitty bad ass news.  And well lets see here, someone who is an emotional eater to start with and under a lot of stress, disappointment, and confusion.  I just gave up.  Gave up on eating healthy, on exercising, on looking towards the future and living the present.  There were days I am surprised I made it out of bed.  I guess if I didn't have my children to look after I would have stayed there.

Now that I have got that in the open, its time to start again (for about the millionth time).  I don't want to be fat any longer, I don't want to be out of breath when I play a simple game of hide and go seek with my kids, I don't want to be unhappy.  I want to be healthy, fit, slim, and happy and I am truly hoping one day I can be that.  I know this isn't a snap of the fingers and you are skinny but I just wish I can get it through this thick skull of mine that I need to work hard at it and all the time not just every now and then.

So I am going to try this battle once again and I am hoping that you will all stay with me.  With Spring coming time seems to be short often with so much going on, but I am hoping to keep you all posted and to get back to reading everyone else's blogs again. 

I wish you all the best and proud of every one of you that has made it this far its a tough road to go down!


  1. Glad you're back :) Don't beat yourself up. Just try to get back on the wagon. Sometimes when life is so hectic and annoying, its best to use the 80/20 rule. Be good and eat healthy 80% of the time, and forget about it 20% of the time.

  2. Don't be too hard on yourself. The important thing is that you want to lose weight.We can all fall off the wagon, especially when life kicks you when you're down.
    It's just important to never give up. I know, I've been there, It seemed the harder I tried, the fatter I got, and the harder it became to do things that I enjoyed or wanted to do. Luckily I discovered the way that worked for me, and I hope you do too.
    If you eat properly most of the time, it can even help if you eat what you like for a couple of days at a time (within reason).
    If you restrict your intake, after about seven days, your body will go into famine mode, to counteract your reduced calorie intake, but if you reduce your intake to create a deficite for 5 days, then eat normally for 2 days, you can fool your body.
    I don't subscribe to there being any food that thou shalt not eat. If you concentrate on things you can't eat you just tend to crave them. Well, I know I do, anyway.
    You are hoping to be slim and healthy, but I'd say that you should see yourself as being that person. Think of yourself as being a slim, fit and healthy person, and see yourself playing with your children happily. I'm a big believer in that type of goal setting.
    I wish you the very best.

  3. Hey there, I've been away on holiday but still keep up.

    Now, sometimes, despite everything we want and as hard as we try overall, LIFE gets in the way and we lose sight of the prize.

    Not because we are weak and can't follow it. But because every now and then there are things MORE IMPORTANT than loosing weight.

    We all struggle or get to a point where it is the last thing on your mind and we all cope with bad news differently. Some people loose weight, I tend to put it on.

    Don't be hard on yourself and just because you went through a bad patch with the healthy eating and exercise, doesnt mean you cant get back to it when you are ready. x
