2 Steps Forward... 2 Steps Back... I got stuck

I was going strong.....

Logging my food EVERYDAY!!!

Working out... adding exercises and variety to avoid burn out and make my exercise routines enjoyable......

I was working! I was pumped! I lost 28 pounds since June 08.
One thing after another came up. I hurt my back and had to stay away from the gym for a while. I got the flu.... My computer (my life line to Spark People) died.....

The days turned into weeks... the weeks into months.......
I'm not pumped to log in my food any more. I've been doing some food tracking here and there for the last few weeks.... and have gotten some really good feed back....
emoticon I still have portion distortion!!! And I still love ice cream --- and if I don't monitor it... it gets out of control!!!

I weighed in this morning. My weight is on the rise. I will not meet my original goal to 148 in April.

I had been going to the gym the last couple of weeks......... but inconsistently, and come on... I know that even when there's 4 inches of snow outside and I'm stuck at home.... I can do any number of exercise routines Right Here at home, but I didn't.

Well today... I'm ready to pick up and carry on. I reset my goal to a realistic late May. I'm ready to log in my food again. I can write it all down and log in later or log into the computer... it doesn't matter... just as long as I do it.

I'm ready to follow a work out routine... to make a true effort. If my body is too tired (ie fighting off a cold or flu....) I will honor my body's needs. But I will honor my body's needs by exercising.

I'm ready to accept success. I can and will make this goal of 148 pounds by May. I am worthy of this success. I give myself permission to obtain it.

(is this what was really holding me back?)

Doesn't matter. I'm ready. I'm willing......... It helps so much to write this down.... and to share it.

Thanks for being there Spark Friends!!!!
