Oh my gosh! You have no idea how tired I am of dealing with my weight. I am so sick of it! Since high school I have been fighting it. Even then, when I was playing multiple sports and active all the time, I still had to watch what I ate, and I never dipped below a size 10. Add giving birth to 5 babies to that, and years later I still find myself fighting my weight. I have tried a million and one things to lose it, and the only thing that really works is a healthy diet and exercise. It is so hard and so tedious and so every-single-day, that I get off the healthy train often, and find myself undoing all of the hard work I have put in.
Case in point? I did the 21 day sugar detox at the beginning of the year and was doing great. Then, I let myself have that one fast food meal, which turned into that one cookie, which turned into an entire sheet of brownies, and my weight was right back up again. Then, I took the boys on the 50 day camping trip, was active everyday and ate well, my weight was back down. A trip to New Orleans when I returned turned one week of eating whatever I wanted into a downward spiral that I am still on. Well, until this morning I should say. I have started the 21 Day Sugar Detox again, and this time I am not going to just go all hog wild when it’s over. Sooner or later I need to realize that I am not the kind of person who can say yes to that one cookie, because it never ends there.
Unfortunately, I was not gifted with a good metabolism, and my weight will be a struggle for me for the rest of my life. I think that is something that is hard for someone who weight loss or a balanced weight comes easy to, to understand. Please, if you are one of those people if you judge those who are overweight, please consider what it would be like if you had to have a constant battle with your weight and yourself every second of your life. It’s tiring, but I am ready to take it on once and or all!
