Starting Over

Wednesday, October 03, 2012

I began my journey with SparkPeople in January 2011. I had a fair amount of success- losing close to 20 lbs, but by the end of the year, I had abandoned most of the principles that helped me lose the weight. I was back up to 168 lbs! So, here I am again. This is not my first time losing weight and then gaining it back. It's almost like it's a cycle that's doomed to happen. But I want to break that cycle.

I started over at the end of August and it's almost like I am learning everything all over again. This time, I plan on losing the weight for good. Who wants to keep losing weight only to gain it back all over again? I need to remember the tools that helped me lose the weight as well as the setbacks that made me regain the weight. I am committed to doing whatever it takes for me to be healthy and confident.

    This is how I feel! I lost 34 lbs but have gained back annoying. I feel like my weight goes down then up, down then up, over and over again. I'm committed to get this weight off for good too. I'm going to plan to lose 1 lb per week instead of 2 lbs per week which is what I normally do. The faster I lose weight it seems like the faster it comes back. Good luck with your weight loss this time around....put your mind to it and you can do it! emoticon
