Another start

Friday, January 27, 2012

I lost 35lbs, was feeling great and had my head totally in the right place....and then I didn't. It has been a year or more since I was on the right track and I've regained 15lbs.

The bigger issue for me is I'm having major difficulties with my attitude. It is like I want to be healthier but not enough to do the work. it. So annoyed at myself, which of course means I don't even enjoy the over eating or the unhealthy food or the sitting on my butt in front of the TV...because I'm having an internal dialogue that is constantly saying get up and move, don't eat that, or at the very least don't eat it all.

I'm going to try to fake it til I make it. Summer is coming and I don't want to face it at this weight and feeling this old. I'll work on a game plan for the next week and go from there. I felt writing it down might help myself get back on track.

    I have good streaks of doing right, and then I fall right back off the wagon. It's so hard to stick to it for a long haul like we have to in order to make this a lifestyle change.

    I relate too. I lost fifty a couple of years ago and then gained them all back. I've been back here using Spark People full time since last October and I've lost 15 lbs so far but I have a long way to go.

Setting specific goals with small awards along the way has helped me stay motivated so far. Also, having a paper chart that I can look at in my bathroom reminds me of what I'm doing even if I don't get on the computer or this site. I give myself gold stars every day I do all I can do. Waking up in the morning and feeling good about how I treated myself the day before is a much better feeling than hating myself for unhealthy and uncaring choices. I have to remind myself how much better I feel when I try. It's definitely worth it.
