I'm not a either or, I'm a both!

Unfortunately what I mean is I cannot eat healthy and not work out, or work out any whatever I want. To lose weight I mean. Some people can just exerciseand eat  whatever they like, and some people can just eat healthy and not exercise. But for some reason my body does not agree with either of those statements.  Why is that? I mean I know that all of us women are different, but why does it have to be so hard. To lose weight, and then maintain. I have lost a good amount Of weight a total of three times in my lifetime, and I have gained weight a total of three times and I lifetime. It's always an uphill battle. Of course two of those times I was pregnant, but that makes it even harder afterwards to lose the weight. I worked so hard from the beginning of the year until July to lose weight for my vacation, and I pretty much succeeded despite a couple of pounds. But now after back from vacation I let it slip a little and gained a little. So now I'm working my butt off again to try and, work my butt off!  Any other ladies out there feel the same way?


  1. I feel your pain :( it's hard. I lost a lot of weight back in May by working out a lot. I was down about 20 lbs but then found life was getting a little to busy to work out. Guess what happened? I gained the 20 back and then some :( It seems its really hard to maintain. I was just going to write a post about it.

  2. I've read several articles and blogs and I think the common feeling amongst people who have lost weight and just trying to maintain is that the "maintenance phase" is the hardest. I think the main thing is that you almost have to look at it as a lifestyle change rather than just purely weight loss. I've lost some weight, still not exactly where I want to be. I have a goal of a total amount of weight loss, but I also want to be healthier for the rest of the time I'm alive and I want to feel good so I can enjoy that time. Sometimes it's hard but I know that I feel better after a good workout. I can also tell a huge difference in how I feel when I generally eat healthier and make healthy choices. Once I made the decision that while I do want to lose weight, but overall, I want to FEEL BETTER and have more energy, it became a lot easier to change my ways for good. I still struggle and have setbacks but it's a lot easier to jump back and get it together. Good luck!!!
