DietBet Take 3.

Tara smiling with headphones on a walkYour girl is challenging herself once again.This year is all about trying to transition into healthier habits and I’m starting out April with a DietBet. I’ve participated in some DietBets in the past (a bit unsuccessfully, might I add) both with a friend and without. It’s definitely hard either way. Losing weight is never easy, but effort won’t betray you. It’s time to try again.

I’ve gained a lot of weight this last year and am now the heaviest I’ve ever been. Most of my clothes don’t fit. My looser clothes are tighter. My face shape has changed dramatically. I don’t feel myself and I don’t feel good. I got off my routine of walking and working out and my weight sky rocketed. It hasn’t been fun.

Seeing pictures of yourself really puts things into perspective. Going through snaps from our DC tripย was a slight confirmation of what I had been feeling. I really look like a different person. It’s not all about looks. Listen, I’m a fairly confident lady. I’m cute, okay? But I don’t feel cute. I feel very slow, groggy, unhealthy, and very blah.

Today is the official start of the DietBet. I’m doing it with my best buddy, Kim, so we can support each other. I’ll be updating you on how it’s going on facebookย and twitter. I’ll also let you know more about my health goals and strategies in the future.

    You are so pretty, and remind me so much of a best friend I used to have when I was younger. Also I think I might do a diet bet. My tummy has expanded all normal proportions this Winter, and this post is thoroughly motivating.

    Get out and do things that make you happy! Dance, walk dogs, volunteer at a therapeutic riding program-you’ll find really nice people there too๐Ÿ˜‰!

    Yay for you!!! I’ve never done a diet bet, but I’m in a challenge group a college friend runs. It’s always easier when someone is working out with you ๐Ÿ™‚ best of luck on your journey!

      I love food too. It’s so tough, but I’m trying to make it more a part of my life than something I’m doing. Thank you for the support! <3
