Honestly, I stumbled and fell...
Friday, May 25, 2012
But... (And I still have a fairly good size one) I am on my way to getting back up. Honestly, how could I think I had gotten over binging? Thanks to my Sparkfriends, because they helped me to realize that WILL make mistakes. I will take my own and other's advice not to kick myself.
I hesitated to blog this after being all up and up on how I 'stopped' binging. Well I did for a while, and then I crashed my figurative bike, and ouch!
(Why wasn't I looking foward?)
Anyways...I hope my fellow human beings will understand, and see me back up on that 'bike' soon.
Well, what's worth doing takes work right? Take courage imperfect beings...we can STILL do it!

So, Autumn, is the bike riding smoothly now? I keep telling myself to step away from the pretzels or ginger snaps as I walk by. Gee, I wonder why I keep them on the kitchen counter in plain sight? We can do it.

Autumn...as Sherry said...failure only happens when you stop trying.
And don't worry about looking forward...only concentrate on now...you undo yesterday...& you can't worry about tomorrow...you can only live 'now'...so put your efforts into now...& don't forget to enjoy 'now'.

I have stumbled and fallen big time three times in this Spark journey of mine. The first time, I regained thirty pounds. Ouch. The second time, twenty pounds. The third time, fifteen pounds. Hmmm, I'm seeing a trend here. Like you, I have been so frustrated with myself, thinking, "how could I let all that hard work go to waste?" But (here's mine) I've come to realize, it's not wasted. By falling, and getting up, and falling and getting up, I'm still learning. I'm still human. If by going through this I will one day be able to encourage others not to give up -- if I'm able to say, "I made it, guys! It took me ___ years, but I made it, and you can to!!" -- well, it will have been worth it.
You are right. You can do it. I can do it. Two steps forward, one step backwards, and two steps forward again. See you out there!
