The last time I really used this site was 5 years ago. A lot has happened in those years my husband of 25 years passed away, and I've let myself go with food and lack of exercise. I'm heavier than I've ever been, I need to get my motivation back. I grew up in Michigan, and now live in Washington State. I have 2 kids, one full grown, and on the other side of the country, and a 16 year old son. Here's to getting my motivation back.

Catch yourself

The moment you feel yourself slipping, take action right away to get back on track. If you catch yourself quickly, you won't fall very far.

It's great when you can stay disciplined and focused for long periods of time. At some point though, you'll get distracted and stray a little bit off course.

That's not the end of the world. Don't beat yourself up just because you've momentarily lost your focus.

Instead, give genuine thanks for how far you've already come. And then step right back on to the path you've set for yourself.

Being disciplined doesn't mean being perfect. Remember that what really matters is what you choose to do right now.

Even if you slip back one step for every two steps you take forward, you'll still be moving steadily ahead. Catch yourself, get back up, keep going and you'll get there.

    Where I am over on the west side of the state (near Bremerton) we're not having a problem with the firers. Thank you for your concern. I've been very pleased with TOPS since I've started. I know the group meetings are something that holds me accountable. I hope this is what will help me truly change my mind set and keep the weight loss going. :)

    How are you doing with those fires out there? Are they near you at all?

    The Trick or Treaters will be out this weekend. Remember your Weight Watchers POINTS values and check to see if you have what it takes to indulge before you begin to nibble. Are the treats really worth it or will you be setting yourself up for a gain at the scale? You're worth taking care of ... even on a holiday full of candy and treats!

    I'm stopping by to say, "HI!" and invite you to a discussion on the Isometrics for the Rest of Us Team.

    You can find the new thread for Weekly Challenge(s) under the General Discussion Forum.

    I'm looking forward to hearing from you and getting any ideas you might have on the subject.

    Hugs, Becky
