this set back won't break me

Sunday, December 23, 2012

I was so excited to have lost 20 and decided to take some pictures to compare to the last time I lost weight. I guess I shouldn't have done that because I realized I look about the same as I did last time... I guess I expected to see more progress. I allowed that to get me down and gained about 5 lbs. I am home with the boys for almost 2 more weeks which means I better start planning better or I will gain 10 more before the end of the year. But I'm UP THIS WILL NOT BREAK ME. Time to stop the self pitty and get back on the horse that knocked me down. I guess the only thing that makes me feel a little better is that I have only missed one workout. So now back to eating clean and tracking.

    CATHGREEN8 has an excellent point! Don't undervalue your loss. You have the tools to drop that 5 and keep dropping. Tracking will help you get back into good habits. Plus, aren't you EXCITED about the next phase of ChaLean?! You can do this. When that negative voice starts talking in the back of your mind, tell her, "Shut up! You're not the boss of me anymore."

    Next time you are at the store, pick up a twnety pound frozen turkey and carry it around the store. Then put it back. Twenty may not look like a lot, but it truly is. keep sparking!
