Look Forward

I really didn’t know what to write about on NYE 2012. Its been a year where a lot has changed and I’ve grown a great deal but exercise and food haven’t been consistent and I spent a little time feeling like I’d failed. I’ve gained weight over Christmas. I did my final weigh in at 230 lbs but I know that currently I’m more than that and you know what. I don’t care anymore.

I’ve been thinking about it for a little while now, a few days at least but I made the decision over Christmas to let go. And I did. A bit. I drank alcohol, I ate chocolate (a lot!), I indulged a fair bit but I’d decided that the end of the year just lead me to one place. A starting point.

I’m starting again.

2013 is not about looking back it’s about looking forward and making it the best. I really didn’t know how to write about this until I read MizFits post Stop Rereading  post. Her point is completely perfect for me right now.

From MizFits blog

I can’t live off the fact that I’m 50+ lbs down, I feel good about my achievement, please don’t read me wrong there, I am positive and happy with it but I want to start afresh. So tomorrow morning I will weigh in, I will update  my myfitnesspal profile weigh in and I’ll get going on getting 2013 to be my best year yet.

I’ve put my 13 in 13 goals up on the goals page for those who need some inspiration or guidance on their goal making, my 13 in 13 posts will start tomorrow for 3 days!

So I’m looking forwards. Looking forward to 2013s exciting happenings, to more development of me and a lot of fun in the meantime!

What are you looking forward to in 2013?

  1. Forward is the best direction to keep moving in … there’s nothing we can do about the past except learn and try to make each day better than the previous one.
    Happy New Year Rebecca :) I’m looking forward to the 13 in 13 Challenge!

  2. Great quote. Lots of us beating ourselves up over Christmas indulgences. But that quote says it all, time to wipe the slate and start a new story. Thanks for the inspiration and good luck!

  3. It’s something I always struggled with when I lost weight. There was a sense of accomplishment and I wanted to acknowledge my good work, but sometimes complacency comes with that. It used to occur to me that anyone else would look at me and still see a fat person NOT someone who’d lost 50lbs.

    Having said that – keeping it off and continuing to see the numbers on the scales drop is a huge achievement.
