Getting Back On Track

Saturday, May 09, 2009

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 emoticon emoticon, 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!

    It is so encouraging to hear that you keep your weight loss routine under the BIG stress of changing jobs, financial difficulties, etc. This is where I fail badly: every challenge - big or small- - throws me into binging, cravings, etc. We all know that the secret is NOT TO GIVE UP . Much easier said than done. People like you help A LOT!

    P.S. HAPPY MOTHER DAY ! emoticon

    Good for you! There are times that I have to renew my commitment nearly every day. The important thing is not quitting. As long as we don't give up we will keep making progress.
