And day one of the restart was.....

Tuesday, November 27, 2012

Okay. I walked at work and I walked last night. It is supposed to rain from Wednesday to Sunday - but, I have an umbrella!

I am trying to just handle things one at a time - even if it takes more than one day to figure it out. The stress is not letting me sleep well. But if I could lose 90 pounds, I can do this again! I know I can. I have to keep positive - I have to do this for me. I have to be positive about everything in my life - even if it is the worst. Tomorrow is a new day for me - and it will be a better day - I will be able to get by all of this and be a better person.

Restarting is VERY hard. But I am a stubborn woman. And I have the BEST Spark friends ever! Thank you all so much for your encouragement - I enjoy your posts. They have helped me so much...knowing I have you guys there for me!

    I think you are doing great and remaining positive is a huge step. Good for you! Getting down on ourselves and being negative gets in the way of our goals and what we have to do.

I also like to think of it not so much as restarting but "continuing on" even when we regain some or even all of the weight we lost. It sure sounds a lot better. We may have jumped off the road to our journey at some point but we're getting right back on whether it's been a couple weeks, a few months or a year or more.

I agree with those that have already suggested to take it slow and one day at a time. Break it down and try not to put a lot of pressure on yourself. I think that only makes it more difficult and is one reason we get off track.

Thanks for the updates. I know you can do it!

    Go slow. Don't try to change everything overnight. You will get there. Take this as a journey, not a race to the end. Making changes you can stick with for a lifetime.

You will get there!

    You CAN do this!!! Keep at it! I finally came to the realization that I don't have to get it all done in one day. It's taken a LONG time to figure that out! :-) Stay positive - that's half the battle right there!! :-)

    emoticon for walking!! I hope it doesn't rain, even with an umbrella it's still no fun.

Taking things one day at a time is the only way to do it. It helps to cut down on the stress. Having a great outlook helps too!! And it sounds like you are there!!!!

Yes, restarting is very hard but keep your head up. emoticon We are here to help you along the way. We are all on this journey together!! emoticon
