Hello, is it me you're looking for?

Monday, August 27, 2012

I have been away far too long. I have logged on now and again, logged a weigh in or a day or two worth of meals. My highest weight is still 20 lbs. higher than where I am now, which is excellent because it means for the first time I lost weight and kept some of it off. In the past I would lose, stop being so on track, then gain back all I had lost and more. For over 2 years I have kept off 20 of the 30 lbs. I lost. I was reading back over some posts from 2010. Accountability, initiative, patience, I can do it. That was my mantra I picked during that time. I had forgotten it. It still applies. I need to be accountable. I will be to my 5 wonderful friends who are always there for me. I have taken the initiative to begin this journey, not quite where I left off, but on the same path and heading in the right direction. I have a long way to go to get to the point on the path I want to be, but I can be patient. I have nothing but time, and there is no end to the journey, just the enjoyment of the stops along the way and the realization that it truly is the journey in life that life is about. I can do it, and I need to hold myself to that. No excuses, no looking the other way and hoping it will take care of itself. That has proven time and time again to be a losing strategy, and not the kind of losing I am looking for. So here is to a fresh start. Autumn is coming, right around the corner. As the leaves start to drop, so will the numbers on my scale!!!!!!

    Glad that you are back! I just got back after dropping out for several months. I kept some of mine off too.

This really works. emoticon

I broke out the measuring cups and spoons. It is really easy to say it was only a T. but to measure it out and see that it was closer to 2 T. No wonder the scale has been creeping up.


Things get out of control so fast

Slow but steady wins the race

Friday, June 18, 2010

3 pounds lost per week is not sustainable, and I knew that. I have posted losses the last few weeks, but they have been minimal. .8 pounds lost this week. I know, I know, a loss is a loss. And I know full well how to get it moving quicker: exercise. I keep saying it over and over but not putting the plan into action. There is always some excuse. I need to commit to excerise the way I have committed to healthy eating. Until I make that committment, slow but steady will have to do.
