Not impervious to what I already know

Tuesday, February 07, 2012

I know getting healthy doesn't happen over night - especially not the losing weight part. That being said just because I know that doesn't mean I'm not affected when things aren't going well. I had a good first few weeks of January and was feeling better having gotten rid of the holiday bloat and what I figured was at least 5 or more pounds.

I weighed myself a few weeks into January and I hadn't lost a single pound. Even though I knew this was a possibility I was discouraged and lost steam. Silly. And rather than come to sparkpeople and be accountable to the fact that I started eating junk again, I just stopped logging in. Silly.

But I'm waking up again.

So now I'm finally back to making healthy meals again and feeling better. Good food, good feeling.

    Thanks VEGETARIANAGOGO - focusing on food first - that's my biggest hurdle. Water intake is pretty good.... exercise is lacking... I was a big gym goer a while back and then slowly over the last year I let it slip to the point where I haven't gone since November. It's no excuse but a close family member passed away this fall and I've reeled from the emotions... I've been doing way too much emotional eating and pretending to myself ( yeah right ) that I haven't been... so again I'm trying slowly but surely to get back on track and have good health to look forward to.

    Welcome back! I know it can be discouraging when you don't lose any weight or when you gain some back.

Are/were you focusing mostly on diet or did you add some exercise into it as well? How is your water intake?

You can do this! Like TWNO said, every step forward counts!

    The most important part is never to give up. You fall down and you yourself up again and keep moving forward.
