I start out strong, I track my food, I make some progress, I say "it will be different this time, this is a lifestyle, not a diet. . . " and all is well for about a month . . .
And then . . .(dun dah dun . . . cue the dramatic music!) . . . I get too busy. I start cheating. I stop tracking food, points, whatever and I start getting really discouraged. This is life, vacations (damn Labor Day weekend!) get in the way and I start to get distracted
I really want this time to be different. It already feels more natural, like I am getting into a rhythm. That is why I really don't want to let myself fall off the wagon. I need this. I want this.
This weekend I am going to try to be as active as possible so that I can get back on track.
So I am posting this blog to be acccountable, to reach out to my amazing support network here. Help me stay focused. Make suggestions.
