Weight Gain After Weight Loss & Jillian Michaels: Ripped in 30Thursday, May 19, 2011Traveliztera
The thing is... I have inspired many people with my weightloss. Now, I'm going to expose the reality that usually happens after getting there and how I am fighting back to help all those who are also in the same situation as mine.
When you get to that weight goal, you have the choice to maintain it or let loose.
I chose to "let loose" last December 2010. Why?
102 lbs. is not my ideal weight, but I was testing how low I can go. The normal weight for me is 120-125lbs. Yeah. After reaching my lowest weight, I started doing workouts that made me bulk up with muscles (I reached 114 lbs.), and then CHRISTMAS and NEW YEAR came and I stumbled. I was successful in 2009 when the events came, but why did I lose the fight between December 2010 and January 2011? Maybe because of the fact that I wanted to enjoy a lot with everyone before moving here to Australia? Excuses? LOL.
The change of residency was my total excuse to let loose. I was in a new place, and my routine became different. Getting those workouts into my new daily schedule was somehow uncomfortable to me. There were many changes. I am sure that many of you can relate.
EXCUSES... We love making them. I'm a victim. That's the truth. That's the reality.
When you get there, you start to relax for a bit, then you get swallowed into a complete state of setback.
You start off with "Okay, I'm still at my ideal weight, so I'll just give myself a break today." And you go like that the next day, then the next, then it becomes a habit, and then you're back to your old self. You get too complacent that you're forgetting that you were already changed and now you're going back again.
Well... you have the choice. You are aware.
Are you gonna ignore it and fall down more or are you gonna fight and go back to the REAL YOU?
It took me about 3 months to actually start acting on my weight again. I am a gym member again annnnndddd... JILLIAN MICHAELS is back again and is definitely ON TIME! She has a new workout plan and it still incorporates the 3-2-1 system (3 minutes STRENGTH, 2 minutes CARDIO, and 1 minute ABS), which she used in THE 30-DAY SHRED. I'm actually excited because I have seen great results from her 30-Day Shred series, and now that there will be new routines, I am MOOOOORE motivated. How great can timing get!? She just released it, so I couldn't see many results out there yet. However, I'm going to do this workout to let you know if it worked for me (and I know it will ;) ).
So, to those who have gotten there and are starting to relax a bit, are you with me? I'm fighting against the setback-- I'm going to retrieve my old healthy self back. Are you coming back with me? :)
