Wow. That Was Depressing.

Sunday, September 02, 2012



So I'm starting September two pounds higher than I started August. emoticon

And I can't even blame Aunt Flo.

I've got to figure out what mental black has me in stasis.

Last night I went out to dinner with some friends. All four of us have lost 100 pounds or more, and all four of us are struggling right now. It was an interesting conversation.

The one thing I think we all have in common is inconsistency with our exercise. We all workout, but probably not as often as we should or at the intensity that we should. We're probably all consuming more sugar than we should too.

I don't think any of us really walked away from the table with a lot of new ideas. (We actually got sidetracked by a long "50 Shades" detour.)I think it's really about getting back to basics. Doing what you know works well with consistency. Not just a few days a week, but every day of every week.

As my doctor said a couple of weeks ago, I've worked too hard to let all of this slide. I think I'm going to start posting my meals and exercise in the blog for a while. Just for accountability's sake.

    I agree with all the good ideas and advice given. You have to stick with it and be vigilant. Those bad habits are sneaky. It doesn't take much and you start going the wrong direction. You are aware and taking the steps to stay on track.

    It sounds like you've got a good plan and a good support group where you can all support and motivate each other too emoticon emoticon emoticon

    This is a life's long journey and we will be challenged at all times to fall back into the old habits that created our unhealthy situation. You will win!

    I agree with what everyone has said...
Meeting the initial goal isn't even half the battle.
It has to last for the rest of your life!
You know how to do it, you just have to put it in gear!

    Yep, back to basics - faithfully recording all nutrition and increased exercize. And, I need to start doing that really son. I've been stuck for months!

    Sometimes that's all it takes is back to the basics. You can do this.
