It is hard to realize how far you slipped down the slippery slope and that you have a way to go before you climb completely back out. I am taking each moment and each challenge as it comes. I must defeat whatever mental or physical block that is keeping me from staying where I truly want to be. I know that I just feel better when I treat my body better by eating right and getting enough activity everyday. It is not about looking good but that good feeling inside. It is funny when I feel bad about what I am doing or not doing and it starts reflecting on the outside, I just tend to feel bad all over. So now I am taking those small steps every day to make my journey easier.
Just yesterday I did not give into cake or pizza at work and when I was ravenous last night I figured out whether I had enough calories to have anything to eat and luckily I did. I had a yogurt and something to drink and felt so much better and fuller. I made a conscious effort last night to stay active too since I have a sit down job during the day and definitely need to do more moving and standing at night to compensate.
It is funny how just a few little adjustments in what you do or don't do can make a huge difference in the result you get.
