Well, I've been on track since Monday! woohoo to me indeed!
I haven't been perfect by any long shot. I'm still not doing everything I was doing at the height of my year long weight loss. I am starting to have those "sheez, why did I let it get away from me" nagging thoughts.
I'm drinking lots of water every day
FAR fewer diet cokes
Walked most days, walked 255 minutes this week!
Eating has been reasonable overall (must be, I'm down 5 pounds since Monday!)
I'm putting good days together...and pretty soon it's easier to continue the streak than break it...truly "just for today" is a great motto...just gotta keep those days consecutive!
As for my back slide, I try to tell myself that I didnt' regain it all. That I should cut myself slack (I am). That its better for my body to slowly lose than not.
I'm doing this for me, for my health, and yes, for cuter clothes. But for me. So, when I see people who know I regained over 40 pounds, I "see" the look in their eye. But it's their thing, not mine. My thing is doing the best I can each day. I'm not always successful, but I'm always me. And that's pretty cool!
Hope your day is going well my sparkfriends!

Well, after my last post, I didn't last long. By Sunday, I was out of control. Ugh.
Monday has been the start of
1. Drinking clear water
2. Less diet coke
3. Walking again (double walk today!)
4. More mindful eating
It's been four days and I almost feel confident that I'm back.
How are you ???

So, I have a new computer, and couldn't figure out why I couldn't post, but now I found the "blocked pop up" button, so we are good!
But I'm not good.
I'm up over 20 pounds. i'm too scared to look at my charts and see the true details, but I know I maintained or gained/lost for a few months. The last few weeks I've gone off the deep end. Two dinners? Eating because it is there? Stress eating? Eating to punish myself? yep, done it all lately. Including hiding wrappers.
Christmas was fun. Overall great day. BUT for people who haven't seen me in a year, I got lots of "you look great". People who see me everyday averted their eyes...twenty pounds is enough of a change they know I've slipped.
I gave away all my bigger clothes. I have few things left that fit well.
Trying every day to have a day on plan. Some days I only make it to 9 am. What happened?????
Yesterday, I finished "Best Friends Forever" by J. Weiner. Summer light reading, but fun for now. One character had significantly slimmed down, and her aha moment was being stuck in a booth at a restaurant and thinking ENOUGH
Enough. I must chant it in my head every few minutes. I'm going to make that todays mantra and think about just getting through today...
I hope all is well with you my friends!
