New Day, {almost} New Year

Today is THE day! I'm not waiting until Jan to start my New Year resolutions! I've never been really thin but mostly had confidence and felt comfortable in my own skin. This year, with a lot of transitions, I lost 20lbs and then gained 25lbs {back} and I feel gross, super UNsex-ay all the time, tired and I've started having back pain (which I just know I can attribute to my weight). Yes I want to lose weight for the vain reasons, but I need to feel HEALTHY and OK in my own skin again. I've done ww, Atkins, medifast, calorie counting but have never stuck to anything long enough. Today is the day I'm making a complete LIFESTYLE change! I'm soooo over it...

*Please return to your regularly scheduled programming

  4. Good luck! Best thing to do is start with one thing a week to focus on and that will help you change your habits and won't be a fad. Wishin you the best!

  6. I know you can do it. Just take it one step at a time. What's helped me make working out/getting healthy easier is finding an activity I enjoy and working on getting better at said activity. For me, I found out that I enjoyed running (go figure). Once I started focusing on getting better at it (signing myself up for different distances, focusing on my pace per mile, whatever), it was easier to stick to instead of the way I used to workout, which was pop in a Jillian Michaels DVD only to jump off the bandwagon a few weeks later. And working at an activity you enjoy makes you actually look forward to working out AND all the good/vain stuff will improve (weight, health, etc.).
