Back on Track

Friday, January 14, 2011

I finally got on the scale this morning. I knew my weight was up after 2 months of eat, drink and be merry... and I'm up 10 pounds.

But that's OK. I have touched the borders of One-der-land and I will go back there again. I have reignited my spark, am almost 1/2 way through the 28 day Bootcamp Challenge and I feel focused again.

Weight loss is a state a mind as much as anything else. You lose the focus, you gain the weight.

Really, I was only kidding myself. If I ignore the problem, it will go away, right? Don't go on the scale and nobody will know, including me.

NO. I faced my fear, acknowledged the number, and I'm burning with the Spark again. I'm tracking my food, looking forward to daily exercise and enjoying living healthy again. Feels great.

    And isn't Bootcamp a great idea! Just enough to push us back into fine habits! Go get 'em, Gator! You have to work extra hard this week because we are going out to dinner Friday to celebrate Peter's birthday and our sparking!!!!

    Exactly! I've done the same thing...stayed away from the "spark" and scales and was in complete denial...boy was I ever surprised when I was right back where I began! But, this time I'm more realistic and will do it slower and steadier. No more fast and furious losses for me...its slow and steady that wins I think!

    Oh how true, ignore it and it'll go away! Don't go near the scales and you won't put the weight on!! Know exactly what you mean I've been "off site" more or less for six months and now have 1.5st to get rid of. BUT as you say, been there done that, and come on we can do it again!! emoticon

    Good for you! I love your attitude. It's done and you can't undo it -- but you can change it by moving forward! And besides, everything is truly a learning experience if we allow it to be. You're doing great, dear friend! You'll have those holiday pounds and many more torched in no time. emoticon
