Feel Good Friday: Weight Loss & Motivation

Firstly I want to apologise for not posting a Feel Good Friday blog post for the last couple of weeks now. Today I am going to be writing about something that’s very close to my heart at the moment, which is weight loss. As some of you may know a while ago now I started Weight Watchers, I was ridiculously proud at myself for losing 3 stone, also surprised! For a while now I have fallen off the band wagon and not been as motivated as I was, which means I have put on some of the weight I lost, not all of it though, which I suppose is a positive. But that’s exactly what I want to talk about, being positive and looking forward. I have been feeling so angry at myself for not carrying on with my hard weight loss work and keep thinking about how far I could have come by now, if I had kept going. I am now frustrated that I have to lose the weight that I had already lost, it seems like such a waste of time, I’ve been there done that, I just want to be where I was and lose more!

I am sure a lot of you guys relate to what I am going through, right? Loosing weight is not easy but instead of being frustrated with myself I need to look at this differently, and if you reading this are also facing similar problems I think you should to! Although those things I talked about above are all really irritating, what is being angry at myself going to achieve? Nothing, accept make me more negative and less motivated, which is the last thing I need! The thing is the only way to get back to where I was before I fell off the wagon is to do it again. If I want to change my life, feel confident and healthy its my only option. I need to take this as a lesson, to keep me motivated and stop me from quitting when it gets hard! If there is something positive you want to achieve, like I do with loosing weight the only way to get there is to do something about it. I feel like I am finally back in my Weight Watchers mind set, although exercise is something I need to work on doing more off. Diet is way more important than exercise and the fact I am eating less and tracking what I am eating, is progress to getting back to where I left off and to lose even more this time.

I want to share some of my favourite motivating and positive weight loss quotes from Tumblr with all of you. I hope this will be motivating for anyone also struggling with loosing weight like I am, and also motivating for me! Hang in there!

100 Blog Posts: A Thank You Message

                                                         100 blog posts

So this very blog post will be my 100th, which isn’t really a big deal but it seemed an appropriate moment to talk to you guys! Starting this blog has been one of the best decisions I have made, I didn’t think it would have such a positive outcome! I have realised how much I love to write, design little pictures for blog posts and interact with people who have taken the time to read what I have written. Since writing about my OCD and Depression I have interacted and had lots of support from other OCD sufferers via social networking. Before this I had barely spoken to anyone with OCD, I had  just read about it on Google, so I am very thankful to have been connected with these people! I wanted this post to just be a MASSIVE thank you to anyone who has ever read, liked, commented, shared and followed my blog posts. Some days I think what I write about is pointless and no one cares, then I get a new follower, a comment or a tweet etc and it spurs me on to keep writing! It really does mean a lot to me when someone follows me or gives me feed back on a blog post!

thank you
