It's simple, really. Don't overthink. Take a deep breath. Let go.


Last night was a binging/purging adventure. Not good, not good.
Ate half a bag of jelly beans for lunch today. Purged.
At least there's no fat in them, right? Except the fact they're pure sugar.

Anyway. The failures don't define me because I simply won't let them.
Tomorrow's another day. Tomorrow will be better.

Just came back from a spinning class where I gave a serious thought to the month-long liquid diet. Maybe it's a stupid idea to even start now, keeping in mind that next week my friends will make me eat Thanksgiving dinner, but I need to begin. That's the first step, right?

And I made the decision. 
Yes, I want to do this. 
And yes, I will do this.  
I can do this.

Tomorrow's November 14, exactly one month before I go back home for my Christmas break. I will do this. I know I could do even better, but for now, my goal is to lose 15 pounds so I can look the way I did over the summer. And a little better.

I've failed so many times in past.
But here's to a new try.
Here's to a new beginning.
Here's to a new me.

 I love you, sweethearts.

  1. I am in the same place, trying to lose at least around 10 pounds before Christmas, and more after that. We are even almost the same weight today, how tall are you though?
    You're right, forget the binge, tomorrow will be great. You exercise so much too, that's awesome :)
    Good luck in reaching your goal and take care <3

  2. Don't linger too long by your stumbles and mistakes; you're lovely and yesterday's troubles don't deserve more than a flittering second of your time.

    I love that I can see motivation and spirit dripping from your words; your spirit gives life to what otherwise would just be words on a blank page. I miss that; having something to work toward.
    I don't even know what I'm doing any more.

    But you, you're lovely, and wonderful, and spirited; you'll get there- wherever there is.

    Much love.

  3. Beautiful choice of pictures sweetie. also I love this sentence ....
    "The failures don't define me because I simply won't let them.
    Tomorrow's another day. Tomorrow will be better."
    ...its very inspiring and I will aim to adopt that attitude as getting angry will only make you feel worse which will inevitably lead to a binge.

    I am now following you so ill be keeping track of how your doing.

    I wish you all the best


  4. I am so glad we don't have Thanksgiving here! Good luck with the food fest.

    I piked on my second ever spin class today. Can you come kick me up the ass?

    Take care <3
