Difficult Not Impossible

Are you as tired of reading about my false starts and new Day 1s as I am of writing about them? I hope so, because I will not be writing about Day 1 again after this post.

It is January 1st of a brand new year. You know there are all those saying out there about making this your year, writing a new story, etc…? I tend to like those types of motivational sayings and they do seem to help me get a bit more motivated to accomplish a goal, this goal.

Today was Day 1 and I can finally say, (cue the trumpets) I DID IT!!

Yes, I have finally completed Day 1! Well, at least I am closer than I have been in the past month. I am not in bed yet so the chance to make a poor food choice is still there but I do believe that I won’t make that choice.

Today I started back on the food plan that helped me drop over 40 pounds in the past. It feels good to be back on plan. Was I hungry today? Not too terribly bad. There was a point in the day where I saw the leftover homemade caramels on the counter and I almost caved in to have “just one”, but I didn’t do it.

Today, I not only celebrate a New Year but I am also celebrating FINALLY conquering Day 1! It may have been difficult for me to get to this point but, as you can see, it wasn’t impossible.

Made It Past Day 1 Yet?

The answer to that question would be a big old NO!

I decided to enjoy all of the baked goodies and candies that we made for the holiday, and Christmas Dinner…don’t even get me started.

Was it a good decision? Again, NO it was not.

Today I feel puffy, bloated, achy joints, and the dreaded not being able to breath when I try to bend over and tie my shoes because my jeans are way too tight. Then of course, the itchy stomach and love handles that have been constrained in those tight jeans for far too many hours and now have indents from every seem and fold in said tight jeans. Yet again a reminder that “enjoying” those baked goodies and poor but tasty food choices throughout the past few weeks was a horrible idea and personally NOT WORTH IT!

So, here I sit again, typing in my journal about how I am still not able to get back on track to a healthier lifestyle.

Which brings up yet another point: It’s not only how my body feels so crappy but it is also hard to look at my naked self. I don’t like looking like a mascot for a tire company with all my spare tires and saggyness.

FYI, TMI Ahead: After I had lost a good amount of weight (over 2 years ago) I was comfortable in my skin and clothes. Being naked (around home) was comfortable and sleeping naked had many benefits (wink, wink). Now, I definitely do NOT walk around or sleep naked. I am clothed from neck to knees. “The sweatpants are tied”, as my husband likes to say. I want to get back to being comfortable naked and also back to the smokin’ hot sex life we had when we were thinner. They say you need a “why”, maybe that should be mine? 😊

Here’s to tomorrow, another Day 1.
