This week I am featuring guest posts from some other inspiring women who are re-starting their weight loss journeys!
I keep telling myself things have to change. I cannot continue living the cycle. I lose some pounds and then I go back to the unhealthy eating habits. I make myself promises, I think how I am going to eat, what I am going to avoid and I start walking.
Then something happens. I can give you thousands or things that happen, but I just got to realize that life happens. And I stop and go back. I do it again and again and it is a very bad cycle.
Some will call it falling off the wagon. I am not sure if I have been on the wagon to be truthful. Well I guess I had been on the past on the wagon. I have lost the weight and I have been in shape. How did it happen? I cannot even recall what I did, but I was able to get there. So why is now so difficult?
I keep thinking and thinking on how I was able to meet my goals before. My answer is simple. I just did it. I did not allow me any excuses and I was really committed. Not sure why this time is being harder. I know I need to lose the weight and I know I have to stop eating junk. I know. I just have to do it.
I feel that I have been going from red light to yellow light and then I stop. It is time to go on the green light and allow myself to succeed. Yes, I need to stop making me fail. There is not one to blame here. I know I can tell you how stressed I have been at work and home and all the things I have to do, etc. But those are just excuses, and I know that.
So now I know what needs to happen so I can go ahead on that green light. I just have to start doing what I need to do. I do need help. I need to be supported and motivated. I need to be pushed.
So here it is. I am committed to get on that wagon again. I am committed to get to that yellow light and keep going until it is green and keep going from there. I am committed to going on the highway so there is no more stop lights. I am committed to the changes.
Here it is for no more excuses and for my success. Cheers with sparkling water to that.
Another fantastic post this week about getting started (again) by a Mamavation sista Monica- who writes at My Life Is A Journey. I LOVED hearing her story! You can visit her on Facebook and on Tiwitter, @monicazyoung
