I am D-O-N-E with the excuses and enabling… are you? (#NSNation, #spon)

I was just thinking back to my past and am in awe that though I knew I was getting bigger and bigger I just really kept making excuses and enabling my size. Now, I know you are scratching your head asking what I mean by enabling my growing size; so let me explain. My weight has ALWAYS yo-yo’d, much like many women of today, it was a constant struggle. I would go from a size six, to sixteen then back down to a ten, then back up. This has been my life since I was a teenager.

But, when I was in my early twenties, I ballooned to a sixteen and thought that was just normal for a girl who was always working and struggling to pay bills. Within a year or two, I started going out more and more and got my home life under control and went back down to a size eight. I was happy but didn’t think much about it.

Then when I got pregnant with Little Man, I went to a size ten, then I lost some, got pregnant again, gained, then lost, got pregnant again, gained a whole bunch more; well, you get the story. But instead of thinking that my weight SHOULD stay at a certain weight since my last pregnancy I assumed it was normal to continue to continue to get heavier. Making the excuse that I had kids and didn’t have time for myself.

Little by little I noticed that things didn’t fit so well anymore and instead of changing my lifestyle, I bought new clothing (notice the excuses and enabling?)Soon I was unable to wrap my towel around myself comfortably and assumed it was because my chest got bigger having nursed three children, so what did I do? I went out and purchased some bath SHEETS to replace my towels (Again, excuses and enabling myself!)

Now looking back I am ashamed at how many excuses I made for myself and how I enabled my weight-gain with those excuses.

Today, thanks to Nutrisystem teaching me the steps to a healthier lifestyle I am done with excuses and enabling! As I step out of the shower and wrap myself in a normal towel, I know I am where I should be in life, at the size I should be! No excuses… No enabling…

    Are you just starting out or have been at it for awhile?

  6. Well done for taking control. I believe we don’t fully engage with things inour lives (such as weight loss) until we have a good enough reason. when have that big ‘why’ then you will be unstoppable. It also helps when you make yourself accountable to others.

  7. You are not a wimp! You are a stronger than you realize and I know that you’ll be successful with your weight loss journey! I can’t wait to hear about your success!
