Here We Go Again....

Hello Blog World!

I've been away for quite some time. I wish that I could tell you I continued to do all the things I purposed in my heart as far as getting healthier and better shape but I haven't. In fact, I've been doing pretty much whatever I wanted to do stopping myself only when others are around. Comments like "are you really going to eat all that?" or, "I thought you were on a diet", and my favorite "that's why you're fat" are SO not helping. Yeah, I know most people call themselves helping but it becomes irking to have someone question everything you lift to put into your mouth.

I was ashamed.

Then I got angry...

There's nothing more frustrating than the skinny friend who has never struggled with her waist line, let alone obesity a day in her life telling you how to loose weight. Like, WTF... Who asked you?  What do you know?

I found myself saving certain meals or snacks until  I could be alone and not hear anyone's criticism. But why should I have to do that? I'm grown. Right???? On the other-hand, aren't I the same one that told everyone that I needed help. So why am I getting so mad at people for helping me?

At this point, I'm confused...

Maybe food therapy would help...

So, I hate to sound like a broken record but I'm going to give it another go. I'll start out simply by reducing carbs limiting them to one day per week and whole grain stuff only on that day. I'll continue to stay away from fried and fast food. I will also be starting the 30 Day Shred over again today. I figure I shouldn't get too bored with 20-25 minutes of HIIT per day. We'll see.....


  1. Hi Shanita
    You've already done the most important part when you say "I'm going to give it another go". That positive mindset is the one to cling to.
    If you feel food therapy might help, then give it a go. If not, don't fret it.
    Don't give up, even if you hit setbacks. Just make some little changes at a time (don't try to do everything at once) and you'll soon be back on track.
    Hugs and good luck

  2. Hi Deniz,

    Thanks for the support! And you're right. I think setting such strict expectations for myself actually cause me to become discouraged and instead of motivated.


Thanks so much for reading and accompanying me through this journey! I'd love to hear from you. Feel free to leave a comment.
