Starting over.... Again...

Monday, May 28, 2012

I don't even know how many times I have started over. To lose and feel great only to get complacent and gain it all back again. I'm worn out with this journey. With the effort. I want it to be easy already. I'm thinking that may be an unrealistic goal. So, this time around, I'm going to focus on each day. What can I do for that day to make sure I stay on track? I'm still working on that part, but for now I have a goal: In January, I'm going to Hawaii. I would love to be in the 100s by then. So, that is my goal. 190 by Jan. 1. It is achievable if I stay on track.

I will need a plan for July... we are going to my parents. Long road trip + a week with my overeating family + long road trip home again. Then a plan for October. I seem to go crazy with birthdays and my daughter's birthday is that month. Then a plan for Christmas... I have always overdone things for Christmas. When I was little, I would eat so much junk I would puke. That seems to have continued into adulthood. Ugh.

So, if I start thinking about those things now, knowing they are coming and that I will need a plan, I think I can do this.

    I too am in the same boat. Just can't seem to get myself out of this funk right's been going on for so long. Lost 40 lbs last year, gained it all back. :(
    Frustrating. But I have to stop bingeing on sugar, that's the first and most important step for me. Good luck to you, wish me luck. Going to mow my large yard now, because that's good exercise.

    I feel the exact same way you do, and I am starting probably my 4th round of this today. I am going to continue to do the challenges in 21 day increments until I reach my goal. It seems less daunting if I challenge myself in small chunks of time and reassess what I am doing wrong (... or right!)... but for the life of me, I just don't understand why it has to be so gosh-darned hard! emoticon !!!!!!

    But, I am not giving up!... emoticon ... keep at it, we will eventually get it right. ~ Dee emoticon

    I know you can do it. Take each day at a time. If you find yourself slipping, review your goals and your motivations and keep moving forward. Remember a bad day or bad week does not mean you have failed. Life is life. You are going to have good days and bad. Most importantly is trying to keep moving forward toward a healthier you! You can stick with it.
