everyone!! Can we talk for a quick minute on REGAINS? Gosh, regaining sucks. I was out there totally killing it and then 💥bam💥 motivation, discipline, desire just stopped around my birthday last November. I mean I “wanted” to be healthy but I just allowed every excuse in the world to take over and allow myself to take days off from the gym, not track my calories, and ultimately regain some weight! At first I was like “oh this isn’t so bad.. it’s just a couple pounds, I’m still keto and healthy, and I dont feel like tracking this this week.” Well that happened every week for the next 2 months and what do ya know... I had regained 20 pounds! Ughhh. I knew it was happening and I felt uneffected. Truly I didnt really care. Untilllll I was struggling to fit into clothes, getting frustrated, and realized THIS IS HOW I BECAME OVERWEIGHT IN THE FIRST PLACE! Double UGH. So I decided it was time. Break OVER! I joined a challenge at my gym, held myself accountable, and decided I was NOT going to be a statistic where people who lose weight often regain it! 💪🏻
Now am I mad at myself that I did this? Heck no! Not one bit. I dont ever want to do it again... but unfortunately that’s life. You lose motivation, you lose discipline, you break healthy habits. And sometimes you need a mental break before you lose you’re freaking mind! Because no matter how easy people may tell you it is, being so dedicated to working out, eating healthy, saying no to cookies and cake every day, IS difficult sometimes. It’s not always hard but it can get exhausting. But we all have slip ups, falls, and broken spirits sometimes. And like I always say... the most important thing is that you get back up. Fall 8 times, get up 9! I’m so proud of myself for getting back into it, not giving up, and crushing my goals. Yeah, it took me 5 freaking months to reverse 2 months of lax lifestyle, but it was worth it.. just like the first six months to lose the initial weight! And I’m not stopping here. But that’s the thing... this is a lifestyle, not a quick fix.
