Lather, Rinse, Repeat....Until I get it right!

Tuesday, July 17, 2012

Okay I fell waaaay off the wagon about 7 months ago, but I'm back, and I'll keep coming back until it sticks. I've had my 'epiphany', if I don't do something now...my kids aren't going to have a mother, my husband will end up a widower way to earlier and dammit I'm not ready to die! That's right I said die....I know that if I don't make changes and lose weight I'm going to die alot younger than I should and I'm not ready, I've got way to much to live for!

I started over again today.

I'm not 'following' a specific plan, I've realized I need to find what is going to work for me and it will probably be a whole lot of trial and error. But I'm willing to do whatever it takes. I'm writing down everything I eat, I found I have to take pen to paper for it to register. I went slightly over on my calories, but it's trial and error, I'll find that place I need to be where I'm satisfied and still within my range. I plan on bringing in exercise but I know to start small, small changes no jumping in trying to change everything at once.

I can do this!

    Congrats on the decision to come back! I'm trying again too. It's not easy, but it'll be so worth it!

    Starting over is good because it bring new energy, new commitment, and, yes, new understanding of what it takes to get where you want. What helped me more than anything was to promise---no matter what---to get "just 10 minutes" of exercise a day. There were some days that seemed like all I could do, but many days I did that and more, and it really helped.
    So, hang in there. You CAN do it! You, your husband, and your kids depend on it!

    A big huge emoticon back...starting again and making the connection that this has to happen, you can make it happen! You will find what works for you because you want to! Beginning with writing everything down is a start. Do you write it down before or after you consume it? If after, try writing it down before...by doing so it gives your brain a chance to process do you really want to eat what you're writing down. It may help you stay within your range!
    As you've learned this is a life changing journey, one that takes time and commitment to do what needs to be done, to make choices that will be a challenge. It is hard to lose weight and on top of it all; you have to accept you can never go back to old eating habits every again for the weight to stay off.
