Two weeks ago I was elated, I had reached 217. Monday, it all came crashing down. I felt like the Canadian 4 x 100 relay team at the Olympics this year, when they thought they won the bronze medal and then realized that they were disqualified. I weighed in at 226.8. That is almost 10 pounds in two weeks. I have no one to blame for this but myself. I still can't get over how my body puts on weight so fast. It is really sad. How could have have just thrown away everything that I had worked so hard for...
Now that I have done crying, I realized that I have some serious work to do. I am going to the gym twice a day (and eating right) until I get back down to 217. It is not easy to get out of bed at 6 am to head to the gym. I do A LOT of the prep the night before. The first night I did it guess what I forgot to pack? No not my running shoes...no not my iPod...MY UNDERWEAR! So after I showered I had to go commando for the day (BTW why do they call it commando? Do people in combat not wear underwear? Just asking). I have been doing it since Monday for the last few days and it is not a joke. But I told myself I would do it and I am sticking to it.
I also found this on the Oxygen Magazine Website
#5 hit my when my friend told me over the weekend that she wants to start running because she saw what it to my body. I was so surprised that someone would look at me as an inspiration. When there are so many times that I feel like a semi-failure.
