The return of JP

Postby JP1 » Tue Jan 20, 2009 6:57 pm

Hi everyone,

Well it has been a good six months since I was last on here and quite a bit has happened. Firstly though I have to admit to some over indulgences. I've just returned from overseas and it was messy. :shock:

I've been meaning to rejoin the forum for a while but whilst I was away I knew there was no chance of me being good to myself so I've had to wait for an opportune time and today is the day.

The past six months has seen me steadily increase my weight to 92.4Kgs :roll: after getting down to below 80Kgs in the first half of last year - though I've been my current weight since about November so at least I seemed to have hit some kind of upward peak. But enough is enough and I resolve to lose this weight again and reach 80Kg at least which was probably an ideal weight all round for my build.

So where did it all go wrong? Well firstly I left here, I truely believe that the support of you guys makes it easier. Secondly I stopped exercising, I'm a lazy bugger at the best of times :mrgreen: but when I took a new contract back in mid year it was all the excuse I needed to stop my routine & thirdly I started bingeing on all my old favourites.. well that isn't exactly true but I did get back on the chocolate, crisps etc, stuff that I'd given up for quite a while.

But it's not all bad news, apart from my trip away I've not gotten back on the booze, not that I have drunk a lot for the last few years anyway. But more importantly, again apart from my holiday I've mainly stuck to the foods I was eating right the way through my weight loss.Where I fell down was I was supplementing this with eating loads of snacks and obviously not exercising didn't help.

What has also made me feel worse during this past six months is that Jack the lab has put a lot of his weight back on and he makes me feel guilty when I see him looking at me basically pleading for me to take him for a walk. So anyway I logged on here yesterday, had a bit of a read and then took him out for an hours walk. It felt good and it made me realise or at least reiterated what I learned last time which is that I'm in control of my own body. The boy was absolutely shattered when we got back and after doing some sit ups and push ups I bet myself that I couldn't get up before work and take him for another 40 min walk.. and so this morning I was up nice and early and took him out again.

So there we are, I'm back and I'm pretty motivated and I'm asking all you great people out there to help me along the way again. I didn't fall completely from the waggon but I've been hanging on for dear life thats for sure 8)

Anyway I don't do things in half measures and eleven weeks today I am heading overseas again for a family holiday and so I'm going to try to target getting back down to 80 Kgs.. I know I can do it because I've done it before and I know the first week or two is going to be the hardest.

Wish me luck.

John

Yay yay yay! John is back. I was wondering about you the other day. Good to see you back :P

I too fell off the wagon after getting injured and was away for nearly six months too during which time I put on about 7kgs! I think this forum really does help us on our weightloss journey.

See you 'round the board JP

Hi milky well I haven't got any excuses other than those offered in my last post.. I never thought I'd beaten it but thought with what I had learned that I could handle it.. unfortunately as we all know it's more of a lifestyle thing and all aspects of the life style need to be looked after.. anyway I'm not and haven't been beating myself up about it.. it felt good when i was doing a bit of running last night and this morning and whereas it took me months to do my first jog last time, I'm into it from day one this time so hopefully it will be easier all way round.. the next week is going to be the hardest for me and I have to get through that and hopefully get a good start weight loss wise.. then hopefully I can push on and reach my goal.. lets hope I have learned something along the way..

Good luck! I'm a new comer to the forum and have found so much inspiration, support and encouragement here. The basics don't change as you so aptly pointed out in your post but staying focused and motivated is always the hard part. This forum and the great support here is a great tool for that I have found in the short time I have been here. Hopefully, too, I will find an end to my yo-yo ways of the past and finally reach a healthy weight and stay there. Best wishes John!

Hi Alexandra.. there are some truely motivating people out there who have helped me a lot in the past.. I'm the first to admit I can't do it without this place and it's been a comfort the past six months when for whatever reason I haven't wanted to worry too much about my weight that I also knew there was a place I could easily slip right back into and thats a nice feeling to have and testimony to all the wonderful people on here..

Good luck with your own endeavours.

Thanks Shalimar and Czarina.. it is good to be back and happy to report that I went on my evening walk and early morning walk this morning.. about 90 mins worth all up and did a bit of jogging.. feeling a bit sore today but glad to say that I am keeping myself motivated.. these are the hardest few days for me and if I can get a week or so into it I believe I can crack it.. and no binges now for the last couple of days and not really since I got back from overseas last week..
