yep.. just like so many times before here I am starting over..... or am I? Is it really a start over or a resuming after a mild setback. When you say starting over it's like you are telling yourself that you've failed and you're back to square one with nothing gained from all the work you did before you slacked off or let life changes create a roadblock. I have not gone back to the point I started from back in July. I am still a much better person from what I did back then and the knowledge I gained I can reflect on and use once again. Even the self-confidence that I have gained has not been totally stripped away. I am not going to lie, I am angry at myself for not staying on course. I am angry that my mind allowed me to forget what it felt like to finish an amazing workout, eat a terrific low GI, healthy meal, or get comments from friends telling you how great you look. I am frustrated that the scale went up instead of down for the past few months. Then I think... I have the ability to change all that. I can go back to what I WAS doing and feeling great. I have to recommit to the life style that made me a much happier person. THAT is what this is about. Not starting over, but resuming... there.. that is the perfect word... I'm going to pledge from this point forward to resume a healthy life style.
