We are hanging in there!!

Good afternoon Operation Flat Belly Followers!

I know it’s been very quiet around here and please accept our apology for that. Our absence has been partially due to our busy schedules and partially due to our ups and downs on this journey. We will be working harder at checking in and blogging about our progress.

As promised,we want to take you on this journey with us. It hasn’t been easy for us and it may not be easy for you either. Losing weight and getting in shape is hard work. But the key is hanging in there and accepting mishaps as part of the journey. If it was easy EVERYONE would be doing it.

Ms. PB and I have had some rough weeks, where we weren’t working out and we were eating whatever we wanted to….justified by the stressors we were experiencing or the rough day we were having. Instead of losing weight, I found myself starting to GAIN!! And it was very frustrating.

We were able to come back to why we were on this journey….What made us want to lose weight and get in shape in the first place. Along the way, we’ve found new forms of motivations and are really starting to understand that this is about changing our lifestyle and not just achieving a weight loss goal.

Goals are good…They are like check points and times to celebrate success. But if you really want to be fit and healthy for the rest of your life, you gotta think long term. If you work hard for a few months and lose the weight, do you think you can keep it off if you go back to doing the things you used to do? I doubt it.

So that is kind of where we are at this point. Looking to make permanent changes to our eating and exercising. We both have chosen 2 different paths, but it is important to individualize your plan and do what works for you. We live 2 different lifestyles and have 2 different bodies. So what works for one, doesn’t neccessarily work for the other.

I know we’ve been at it for weeks and you guys can’t see much success via our weight losses…but hold on tight because we are wiser, more experienced and more motivated. Big changes are coming and we hope that you guys are progressing as well.COUNTDOWN TIL SUMMER…details coming soon!!
