I Failed

I Have Failed…

I have gained weight.

I have gained most of my weight back that I lost.  It’s embarrassing.  I don’t like to fail.

I have successfully lost over 100 pounds and then gained back almost 75 of them.  Yes, I had a baby.  Yes, I had two major life stressors within the last five years of my life.  Yes, I have all the “great” excuses of all time.  However, that is what they are now, excuses.

I must move past all of those.  It is time.  I have been waiting.  I have been waiting because I DO know what it takes.  I have been waiting because I KNOW the long road that is ahead of me.  I know how hard it is going to be.  I KNOW what it takes to be successful.  I have been waiting because it is hard.  It is so much easier to eat what I want, not exercise, and be lazy.  But, it is time.  The next year is going to go by with or without me losing this weight and getting healthier.  It is time.

So, I have failed.  But, I have only truly failed if I don’t get back up.  So, here we go again.  Trying once more.  Anyone else out there feeling this way?

Failure is a Bruise, Not a Tattoo

    So glad you’re okay, I got so worried when I saw there were no updates! And I’m with you, girl. You’ve got this. One day, one hour, one second at a time. “God, Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the COURAGE to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.” Wishing you COURAGE, Jen! Marathons in any form are completed one step at a time. You just took the first step. And never forget to forgive yourself, or to treat yourself the way you would want your daughter to treat herself. You are worth it. ❤ xo

    I feel the same! I have gone through a lot these past couple years, including losing my last two grandparents and both of my parents. For awhile it was all I could do to keep my head above water, but now it’s time for me to stop taking the easy way out, just like you said. I actually started back at it today, so your post was perfectly timed for me! Gym and vegetables, here I come! 🙂

    Glynda Lomax – The Fat Curse: Could a Curse Be Keeping You Fat? Kindle Edition

    Here’s another item I’d like to share with you all: The Fat Curse Blog

    “This is not another book about what you should or shouldn’t eat or how to exercise. This is a book containing two major revelations I received that I believe will help the large majority of people needing to lose weight who have not been able to. It is not always just about the food we eat.
    A spiritual law may be keeping you fat.
    If you have tried traditional means to lose weight, if you have tried all the diets, each time becoming more disappointed than before, if you have exercised until you injured yourself or nearly passed out, if you have felt like a failure for years because you just could not get the weight off, I have good news for you.
    After praying for many years for revelation about weight gain that just will not budge, the Lord revealed to me a spiritual law that had been working silently against me for decades, along with another factor from my past that I began working on right away.
    I can’t promise you these issues are what is keeping weight on you, but it definitely is what was keeping it on me. I am almost 60 years old, so to lose any weight at all is almost a miracle even on very low calorie, low fat diets. Upon these revelations, I literally lost almost 4 pounds in 4 days, and I was actually eating more than usual.
    It is my prayer you will find new freedom and weight loss after reading this eBook and praying the prayers in it. May we all get free and walk out the remainder of our journeys on earth in thin, healthy bodies.” – Glynda Lomax –
