Restart!

After a tough 3-4 months of moving to the other side of the country, locum work, more moving and starting a new job I'm pressing the restart button! Unfortunately I'm back up to 87kg (192lbs) but I know what to do to change that and I feel recommitted to doing it after a few months of being ambivalent about the whole process. So it is back to cutting calories, tracking calories and reintroducing exercises. Hopefully my injuries picked up last year stay away!

Thanks for commenting on my post. It's not so much me that I'm worried about as they are almost gone but my dog holly has them and on they are on her mouth ;( she seems ok, vet put her on cream, shampoo and antibiotics as they had started to swell. Hoping my cat doesn't end up with it too.

That is awesome! I am really good about drinking my water, but when I'm at home I want the Diet Orange Sunkist. *FACEPALM* I read a lot of info on it, and I know they can't prove 100% the negative affects of it, but they can definitely show the corrolation between that and some dieseases and stuff. So I know it isn't black and white like drink diet soda and you will get "this disease", but I definitely know that there is NOTHING positive about it. That in itself is reason enough to just give it up. When I go out to eat I always drink water, so if I can keep it out of the house I will be golden. :)

That is so funny you said none might be easier than one. About an hour ago I decided to try to kick the diet soda habit cold turkey lol. I think you are right, I think one is going to lead to two and so on and so on. If I can make a clean break from it I don't think I will miss it. This is my hope at least LOL. :) Thanks for the advice and support! emoticon

Thank you! I found the book a really good read, do I think it's necessary? Probably not, but any question that you have, the answer is in the book. The website is really helpful too as well. I'm so going to continue eating this way most of the time so if you have any questions just let me know!

Thanks for your advice on restarting my program : ) I did exercise yesterday, and I set a goal of 20 minutes of light exercise (could just be walking the dog) per day, tracking calories and exercise, and working on my sleep for the first couple of weeks. I think baby steps are the way to go. emoticon
