New Years Resolutions

2010 will be the beginning of the 3rd year of my Diet/Life Style Change. As I started this journey 2 years ago, I really did not know it would take this long, and how many ups and downs I needed to conquer. I still have not reached my goal of weighing 150 pounds, and not only that because I have been off track for about 6 months now, by not going to the gym 5 -6 days a week, I have gained back some of the weight I had worked so hard to lose. But the biggest realization is my addiction to food! I do have a sort of disease, and this is really the root of the problem. I have to keep my bingeing under control, and this will be with my all of my life! Discipline is the only way! being strong and saying no to that piece of Chocolate, or no to that cracker with French Cheese!

Back in July , my 50th birthday I had set a goal of weighing at first 150 pounds, that didn't happen, and I had to reset it for 200 pounds, and even that didn't happen, it was around 230. Still of course not bad.

I recently met a good friend at Christmas who has gone another diet route of ' Weight Watchers'.. and she now has met her goal! she started at 220 and is now 150. I feel so sad that I have not met my goal yet, and now coming clean, I weighed-in today at 280!

Yes my dear blog friends and followers.. I have let you down, but let my self down! I have gained 50 pounds! ... so frustrating.. so crazy that you can gain this weight back so frikk'n fast too!

It takes such hard work, sweat and dedication to lose 1 - 2 pounds a weeks.. and in 6 short months I gain 50 back! CHRIST!

well.. here I am confessing.. coming clean to you all.... this New Year brings on a new challenge and realization... it's not a DIET ... it really is a Life Style Change... because I can, as proven in the last 6 months, fall back into old habits! I love food, and want to gobble up as much as I can all the time! But I have to be strong, strict and true to myself! If you are not following a strict successful diet program like Weight Watchers, then indeed you have to go to the Gym, no if and butts about it!

I will keep on truckin'g , keep smiling.. and keep trying.. this will not conquer me! I will win this quest!
