Reflection. Blog about your past 10 weeks. Did you reach your goal? What’s next in your journey?
These past 10 weeks presented more challenges than I was able to emotionally handle. I fell back into over eating as my coping mechanism. I regained 10 pounds instead of losing 25 like I had planned at the start of the challenge.
However I never broke from my commitment to exercising every day. I am very proud of that.
I was also recently able to step back and re-evaluate my food plan.
What once worked is no longer working for me.
I am now taking a more moderate approach in both my food and my exercise plan. It has helped. I have lost some of what I regained.
It is my intention to stay the course with this more moderate approach, and also to reset my overall weight loss goal to a more realistic number set by my doctor instead of the unrealistic one set by wishful thinking on my part.
I am looking forward to the new summer challenge and proving that I can see this through without giving up on myself.
Thank you to all of my Spark friends that helped me through this difficult time.
You really are the best of what Spark has to offer.
Hugs and love to all of you,
