Spent the last few days looking at my eating habits and finding my triggers. I KNOW how to lose weight. I thought I had a good gripe on the healthy lifestyle I had achieved ----but it slipped away.
In order for me to move forward I need ed to analyze my eating habits - and that's what I've been doing.
I've been monitoring my food intake. I've been looking at "when" I eat, "what" I'm choosing and how I'm feeling at the time. I've noticed a pattern. This is the pattern that has contributed to the seemingly endless cycle of losing, gaining, losing, gaining.......
Now I can come up with a plan that will not only get me where I want to be but will help me stay there. Time to set my goals and devise my strategy to achieve them.
Home....back to me. I've been sidetracked for too long. Time to focus on the good things in my life, either deal with the not so good things, when possible.... Or just let go and move forward in the direction that "I" choose for me. It's time to come home.
after a difficult time. Took me longer than I wanted but I'm moving forward again.
I just got back from a dance weekend. The last few I've been on....well, I'm not going to even bother looking back when I feel so positive and refreshed.
I had a great time, a lot of laughs, quality time with my daughter and my friend, reconnected with some old friends and made some new ones. This break was just what I needed. I feel like ME again!!!
Now back to the business of getting back in shape and HEALTHY!!! Losing weight is great, you feel great, you look great but you need to have a program that works...something you can live with, something that fits into your lifestyle. And I have no problem changing my lifestyle but there are some things I just refuse to give up because they bring me pleasure. I'll find a way to work them in. Life is meant to be enjoyed.
I know it's not a laughing matter when you want to lose weight. It's not easy. It takes determination...and a lot of work. But I know it's worth it in the end. I'll get back to where I was but I want to do it with some humor. But I will get there. And so can you!!!
Today is just another starting point...no looking back. Taking those small steps and sometimes giant leaps. As long as I'm moving forward I'm . And that's a good place to be.
