We begin again...

Wednesday, January 23, 2013

Well, here I am, almost a year later and in the same place I started. Have I been consistent? No. Have I done my best? Not even close. Am I ready to begin again? I hope so.

The truth of it is, I have lost before. I mean the good kind of loosing, as in weight, and I have gained it back. It is so discouraging. I don't know if I am scared or what I am. I guess all I can do is keep struggling on and hoping one day it will click.

I did good for a while last year. Almost completed my C25K program. Then I hurt my ankle and it was all over. I get discouraged and distracted easily, I admit. But I also know that I am a creature of habit, which can be both good and bad. Bad in the sense that right now, I have bad habits, good in that I know once I get going on something, I can keep going as long as I am seeing results.

I don't know what the answer is. I wish I did. I wish I could just do what I know needs to be done.

Sorry to be a Debbie Downer today. I just had to get something in to start off the year. Some sort of explanation for my unmoving ticker.

    It's not the falling down that is the problem. It is when you do not get back up. You are still going, so you are awesome!

    I totally understand how you feel! It took me forever to be able to get on track and stay there, because I lose weight so slowly now compared to when I was younger. But the bright side is, once I decided just to hang in there and be patient(and it has been 2 years now!) the weight is staying OFF for the first time ever, because I have worked too hard for too long to EVER do this again, AND the good habits have become ingrained. All those months of losing 1, 2 or 3 lbs (or nothing!) have added up to 58 lbs! And this was the zillionth time since I was 14 that I have BEGUN again, but proves not to give up! YOU CAN DO IT TOO!

    If I try again with the same attitude, change doesn't come.

I have found that when I do finally make a change that sticks, it's because I'm thinking about the topic/issue in a different light.

I wish you the best of luck!

    emoticon You can make a change, just keep trying to make a habit of logging everything you eat and exercise daily. I am here to cheer you on however I can!
