Getting back in the swing of things

Tuesday, May 29, 2012

My life has been pretty crazy the last few months and my focus on my healthy eating lifestyle has certainly suffered. As a result, I've backtracked a little on my weight - I'm up about 6 lbs from my most recent lowest weight. BUT I'm getting back on track, starting TODAY, and I'm going to reverse that pretty quickly. Today I'm starting back on Phase 1 of the South Beach Diet and getting back on the C25K train, and I'm actually excited about both. I took new measurements this morning (EEEK!), I've got SBD-friendly breakfast. lunch and snacks here at work, I've already got a SBD-friendly menu made out for the week, and I've got the drive to get back on track.

I got a bit of a slap in the face recently when I logged my weight here and then went to the reports page... and saw that I would be about 5-7 lbs from my goal weight by now if I had stayed on track. GAAAAHHHHH!!!! Dammit. Oh, well. It could definitely be worse. I could have gained back ALL the weight I've lost so far.

But still... but still... I'll reach my goal. It'll take a little longer now, but I'll get there.

    You can do it!! I have had the same experience and am working to get back into my routine and keep my emotional/stress eating at bay. Getting back into the groove takes a few days, but feels great when you can keep it going. One meal at a time, one day at a time, one week at a time. YOU CAN DO IT!!!

    You and I are in the same boat! I too have allowed myself to get off track the past couple of days (thank you holiday weekend) but today we start fresh!!
