Reflection and Regrouping

Sunday, December 30, 2012

Had pretty bad year as far as healthy eating and fitness are concerned. I am starting 2013 the same weight as what I started 2011, yes 2011.

I started 2011 at 266 lbs, I got down to 234 by thanksgiving 2011. in 2012 I gained it all back, I am going into 2013 at 266 lbs again.

I can say all of these excuses about why my weight loss stopped and went the other direction but all of that doesn't matter now.

I messed up and now I have to go forward.

My husband is now vegan and gluten free, so I am forced to cook healthy vegan meals on the weekends so I am going to make the effort to continue throughout the week when I am only cooking for myself.

So far I have been gluten free vegetarian (not quite vegan) for 3 days. I know ----I have many more days to go but I can only do this one day at a time.

I need help keeping my head in the right place, encouraging words would be greatly appreciated, sometimes I feel like I am the only one struggling with eating mindlessly.

I want to be healthy, I want to lose the extra fat, I want to feel good and energized.

This was my first step... now for the next!

    I hate to say it...but your not alone. I was doing great up until Christmas and now...I'm like a sitting duck. I've been over my calories...but getting in my workouts and then some...

    Don't get discouraged. Together, we can motivate each other and we can get there.

    You did it before, you can do it again............this time you are in it for life! Sounds like you are taking the first steps by learning this new way of cooking, now just need to follow through and eat what you are cooking. emoticon emoticon emoticon

    seems there are quite a few people that are regrouping right now. I regrouped in October but that doesn't mean I don't struggle. You are NOT alone!

    One step, one meal, one day at at time.

    I am regrouping too. I've been way bad over the holidays and want to get back to losing again! I'll be starting the year right about where I was last year and the year before.
    Let's do this!

    You're certainly not the only one struggling. If you were, this site wouldn't be so successful. Reading the blogs and success stories really helps me to stay focused.
