For various reasons around the begining of this year I started to slip off the bandwagon but it was ok until about Feb when I crashed and burned. Since then I've put back on almost all the weight I lost.
This probably isn't surprising to some and probably a well worn story for others but for me its never been like this. Yeah I've lost weight before and put it back on plus more in the past but the most I ever lost was about 5kgs - this time I'd lost 25kgs. I've put back on about 15-20 of those and while I obviously feel like I huge failure I want to get back on track again and loose it for good! (I have a lot more than 25 to loose btw). I'm not going back to the gym because I can't afford it but I have some equipment at home via relo's and I have a new eating plan ready but I'm kind of freaking out on the inside.
I understand it's probably because I'm worried I'll fail again but it's causing me serious stomach-in-knots anxiety! A fear of failure is the lamest excuse anyone could have for not starting something (be it weight loss or not) but part of me just keeps screaming "I'm not ready!" whereas last time I began it was seriously easy! I even had a half eated packet of M&Ms in the house that I didn't touch for months(!) because I just didn't need/want too but this time I'm struggling to make it through a single day.
Do you guys have any suggestions for me? Have you experienced something similar yourself? Do you think you have to be "ready" to do it because once I would have said yes but now I don't know. One the one hand I don't feel ready at all but on the other hand I don't want to wait.
Heeeelllppp meeee! D:
