At Goal Weight... to STAY

I am back at my goal weight, and at goal weight I will stay. I learned important lessons when I got off track and regained lot of the weight I'd lost. But I recovered my FOCUS and worked my way back to my right-sized body in 2015.

One of the most important lessons that I learned is the importance of SUPPORT. Share my goals with someone who will hold me Accountable. SparkPeople is my "someone", and it's important to make a deep connection with the community and let my ...
I am back at my goal weight, and at goal weight I will stay. I learned important lessons when I got off track and regained lot of the weight I'd lost. But I recovered my FOCUS and worked my way back to my right-sized body in 2015.

One of the most important lessons that I learned is the importance of SUPPORT. Share my goals with someone who will hold me Accountable. SparkPeople is my "someone", and it's important to make a deep connection with the community and let my SparkFriends know how I'm doing, even in the rough times... or should I say especially in the rough times.

My ACTION PLAN:
1. In the moment of trouble, get support. Make that human connection. Reach out - someone will be there.
2. Breathe. 3 deep breaths go a long way towards recovering lost resolve.
3. Help someone else. Get out of myself and my self-absorption. There's always someone to help with something... just look around and lend that helping hand.
4. After a slip-up, simply resume on-plan. Permission to be human.
5. Above all, remember my reasons for wanting to lose weight in the first place. They are written down - reread them. Transport myself back to that time when I was desperate to get to where I am right now.

Hi Anne
I'm done for the day now, keeping the dust down by spraying the air with water. It pulls the dust to the floor boards!!
Neat trick I've learned.
