So the Pocketful of Quirky Grace DietBet ended this week and um… I didn’t win.
I was hoping that running our very own DietBet would kick my booty back into workout mode, since my first one went so well. But it didn’t.
I mean, I lost a few pounds.
Pretty much the same three pounds I’ve been losing and gaining for the last couple months.
And I KNOW what I’m doing wrong.
I’m not trying.
That fire that I wanted to be lit under my butt? Well, it didn’t light.
I think I know the problem though. When I started my first DietBet I was SO OVER my weight. I had just hit an all-time high and I was PISSED at myself for getting that way. I used the DietBet as my chance to finally get back into it – I worked out 5 mornings a week and I ate super healthy. Surprise, surprise… I dropped the pounds.
In fact, I dropped all the pounds back to my pre-pregnancy weight.
I felt better. I feel like I look better. And my clothes fit better.
So my next goal was to get to my pre-husband weight. And that is where I failed. Because I’m not really feeling bad about where I am right now. I mean, I want to lose more pounds. But I look okay. And I like to eat yummy food. And I like to sleep in.
Which is why I lost my DietBet.
But I’m kind of okay with that, because I’m maintaining my weight and I feel pretty good about myself.
The final results haven’t come through yet, but it seems like a lot of the other people playing along won. So CONGRATS to everyone for their hard work – whether you won or lost. Our group lost over 190 pounds, which is an AMAZING amount of work! I’m super proud of everyone who was a part of the DietBet.
I just need to figure out how to get my fire lit again…
