Falling off the Wagon

This post is a little different to anything I would normally do, but I think it needs to be said, and I hope it helps any of you struggling with weight or diet. 

So this is my big confession.

Last year I turned into one of those health & fitness junkies, I was at the gym 5-6 times a week, I wouldnt touch anything processed, I was instagram obsessed, logging everything I ate and did. I took great pride in my shrinking wastline, would obsess over food and excercise to anyone who would listen. 

Then December hit. I was offered a role at work which quickly became full time, I didn't have time to hit the gym hard. Then I met Iain. Endless takeaways have passed since then, and paired up with a just plain awful diet, I have gone from being 10st 10lbs, to 12st 5lbs.

Trust me those numbers horrify me more than anyone, but I am being honest with them finally, and accepting that I don't want it to continue, I want to be healthy, I want to be confident again in my body. 

So yes I am ashamed that I well and truely fell of the wagon, but this is life. I have gained so much more than weight over the past 6 months, and I can't look back and regret any of it. I can only look forward and change the outcome to something I want for me and my body.
Falling off the wagon isn't ever anything to be ashamed of, but having the courage to climb back on when you have fallen so hard takes guts. To go back and say you need help, to say you have been in denial as the numbers have gone up. Realising that the only person you have really been lying to is yourself. 

So that's it, I have been honest, and this is my vow to myself to change.

  1. Life has its ups and downs and no one is perfect, so of course there is no need to feel ashamed of falling of the bandwagon. You can always pick yourself up start again, always! That's the beauty of it, all you have to do is decide to make a change.
