This Time Next Year #5

Hello? Is anybody there?

If you are still reading- I am back!

It may have been two and half months but I am back writing again. Finally!

A few people have asked when the next update would be, and so I thought that now would be a good time to update you on what has been happening since the last post. When I last posted, I was in a good place. I was losing weight and I was happy and most importantly feeling good about myself. We then had a lovely holiday in July exploring and seeing family and then the blues hit! Man was I unprepared for those blues.

The weight loss hit a stalemate and it would not budge! I found that my confidence was at an all time low. I thought if I took a little break from blogging and tried to find the motivation and confidence again to get back at it, I would be fine. I now realise that I was wrong. The motivation and confidence didn’t come back.  The weight loss had stopped and the weight gained started again, not a huge amount was gained but it made me feel really bad and quite angry at myself.

In the midst of all this going on, I did get a new job in late July  which I am really enjoying! I think that has something to do with why I am back blogging. Over the last few weeks, I have started to feel a little bit more confidence as I have started to lose weight again. The good news for me is that I am starting to enjoy losing weight again.

I have even got some new walking boots and new found love for exercise so I am excited to get back at it. It has taken a long time but I am excited for a walk in the Lakes. I used to like it when I was younger but then I hit my tweenage years and found out that I enjoyed TV more than the outdoors so each time the idea of going for a walk or any form of exercise was put to me, I rebelled. I found that the more I rebelled, the more I convinced myself that I didn’t like walking or exercise. I am ready to change that. I am finally ready.

I am looking forward to losing more weight, keeping to my goals and getting back at it once more. This time feeling more mentally prepared. I think I got scared when the weight loss stopped and thought that it wouldn’t continue but this happens and I know that! I just wasn’t ready!

I am ready now! I am ready! Are you with me?

As usual, I welcome any tips and thoughts. Positive thoughts only! I have had enough of negativity and negative thoughts.

I will see you again, same time next week!
