Time to Get A Hold of This Train Wreck!

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!


  1. I know exactly what you mean…I was doing really good maintaining my healthy weight and then I are whatever I wanted this summer and gained 10 lbs back. I started dieting and lost 5 lbs again but I'm still struggling. I HATE exercise and dieting…I'm so sick of it!

  2. I just failed my sugar detox with some oatmeal craisins cookies that I made for a blog post 🙁 It's hard after the first couple of weeks.

  3. I'm really eager to try this but have to ask my daughter's doctor first since she's exclusively nursing – I eat a ton of fruit so I'm not sure how it would work out – I mentioned to hubby and he said no way he'd do it – he's chicken!!

  4. I totally relate to your struggles that is exactly how I feel most of the time it is such a hard battle. Good luck I hope you gain control.

  5. I've been overweight for over ten years and I HATE it when people judge me because of what I look like. It truly does suck!

  6. I know how you feel! I have such a hard time losing weight no matter how many calories I reduce and exercise I do.

  7. I am also one of those people that will also struggle with it for the rest of my life. I wish you the best of luck on your journey!

  8. I remember you writing regularly about your progress and I didn't realize you'd slid back a bit. I hope this proves to be a good kickstarter for you to get back in the game!

  9. I should try this after the new year…..Good luck and I look forward to your results. I've struggles my whole life too.

  10. I've been doing the same thing… I do really well for awhile and then I get off track, and the next thing I know, my weight is creeping back on again. I lost 25 pounds from this time last year till April of this year. I knew I'd been gaining, but avoided the scales. I was in denial… if I didn't weigh myself, I could live in the delusion that I hadn't gained. Well I gained 10 pounds back since June. I get frustrated with myself because I can't seem to stay motivated. So I started back last week counting calories. Good luck!
