Setbacks


I’ve been a bit hard on myself lately. I’ve gained the last two weeks and it’s really made me feel crappy. I know it’s my own fault because I wasn’t tracking properly .. nor was I really trying. I fell back into old habits and basically stopped caring.

I’ve been somewhat mean to myself. THIS type of behaviour is not fair. I’m not this girl anymore:



I don’t have a huge double chin anymore:



I need to stop acting like having a bad week or two is going to automatically revert me back to the person I used to be and that I’ll be fat again or I’ll be depressed again.. I’ll be lost again. That isn’t me anymore. I’m different now. I don’t need to smile for people to see the happiness in my eyes.. I don’t need to TRY to be happy. It’s automatic. I automatically smile all the time!

This is who I am:


I am HAPPY AS HELL! I don’t even need to smile for you to see it! My happiness comes naturally. So what if I gain a few pounds? There is no need to tear myself down. I’m still me inside. I have not only changed on the outside... I’ve changed on the inside. And I LOVE this person.

I know even though I’ve gained a few pounds back that I am STILL on a mission. I am not going to give up my weight loss journey because of a bad week or two. Before this I would have said “F it” and continued spiralling and gained all the weight I had lost.. and more. Not this time. This set back isn’t going to ruin me.. it is going to strengthen me! It’s already strengthened me that since Monday I’ve already lost 3 of the lbs I gained back!

Thanks for listening to my rant :)
