I have been putting other things ahead of my weight loss routine again, and that always leads to backsliding. I get tired and/or sick, take a break from my exercise routine, start eating things I shouldn't eat, and before I know it I'm putting back on inches and then pounds. Well, I'm determined not to let that happen this time! This is the year I will lose the weight!!
I only worked-out twice this week and I didn't do much tracking on SparkPeople. Tracking on SP and communicating with other members is as important as eating right and exercising, so I'm committing to getting back on track with everything this week.
Being tired is a major factor in my eating habits and so is stress. Right now I'm having some financial difficulties and I'm about to start a new job in a week. My financial troubles are short term, but pressing. Once I leave the old job and start the new one, the stress of the old job will be gone and I'll be on my way to resolving my financial woes with my new salary. So, I just need to stay prayerful, think positive, and keep doing what's working.
I put on a pair of pants this past week that I have not been able to wear for 5 months
, so I know I am making progress and I will not lose the progress; no more starting over - I'm continuing to move forward from this point!
