From January through May did so good, logged food, water, and fitness, stuck to my program, met my weekly goals, believed in myself, and eventually lost 30 pounds. Then, I'm not sure what happened, although I did return to work full time in May. Since then, I plateaued for awhile and now am slowly gaining. I'm afraid to get on the scale to see where I stand. I don't have the time or energy like I did in the beginning. Today I reviewed my eating habits from early on to see what was working for me. Going grocery shopping tomorrow to stock up on what worked in the beginning. Even though I previously proceeded on to Stage 4, am now planning on logging all food, water and fitness again. I hope to be able to start getting up early before work and getting in a good workout before work and somehow eliminate the mindless and stressful eating that I've been doing. I hope this works. I was so proud of my accomplishment, but now with this backslide, I'm really scared I won't be able to rein it in and take control again.
