So now is the time I proclaim via this blog what I have been thinking about over the past month: I need to make some serious lifestyle changes once again.
One year ago, two weeks from today, I started a popular weight loss plan and by April of 2008, I lost a total of 30 pounds. It wasn't an easy task for me given my hereditary, crap-metabolism and overall ideal of my body image. It was probably one of the hardest things I have ever done. However, I had never felt better about myself than while I was following the plan and I'm sure it was the healthiest I had ever been. I had more energy, I slept better and most importantly, my mood was awesome a majority of time. Somewhere along the line I began to slip...and teeter...and then, just as summer hit, I completely fell off the proverbial healthy wagon. I now find myself eating fast food way too often, being a lazy mofo who never exercises, I'm constantly tired and have a hell of time getting up in the mornings and I can see a huge difference in my attitude, mood and stress level. I know I haven't gained back all of the 30 pounds lost, but it is not just about that anymore; its much more than the number of pounds at this point, its about my mental and physical health.
I am really disappointed in myself for letting this happen, but two weeks from today I start a new chapter: I'm starting over with the healthy lifestyle and hopefully a better outlook on life by rejoining my weight loss plan.
There, I've gone and said it.
