3 months of nothing... STOPS NOW!

Saturday, July 14, 2012

I honestly don't know what made me stop. But I did...

I stopped blogging.
I stopped tracking my food and water.
I stopped visiting SparkPeople.
I stopped reading my friends' blogs.
I stopped exercising.

I just... stopped.

Thankfully, for most of that time, I didn't gain any weight. I was still making healthy(-ish) food choices and managed to sustain my current weight loss.

Until the last 2 weeks. Something got ahold of me (ohai there all my old bad habits) and I've been eating. A lot. WAY more than I need to. And not out of hunger... just... because?

I stepped on the scale this morning and am sad. I'm back up about 10 pounds from my best moment in December.

So.... that was enough to scare the poop outta me.

I keep saying I'm getting started again, but then don't do anything. This weight isn't going to go away all by itself - I have to throw it out of the party!!


November 10th (or 17th) my mother-in-law gets remarried. I've been asked to sing. This is my first "goal" date.
April 4, 2013 I turn 40. This is my second goal date.

I'm not sure what my actual weight-loss goals are for those milestones - only that those are my markers and I WILL weigh less than I do right now in November. And then less than I did in November by my birthday.

    One thing I've seen others do successfully is "start at the beginning" - pick a few quick start goals. They don't have to be the same ones you originally did, but ones that you want to work on that will help rebuild the consistency and momentum for you.

    Blogging today is a start!

    Have you considered setting up a Spark Streak for yourself to help keep on track? Sometimes I've found that technique helpful.

    Whatever you do, good luck as you continue your healthy journey.
