Truths from 2012

Wednesday, January 23, 2013

Denial is comfortable. The truth is 40-45 pounds came back for several reasons.

1. I stopped going to the gym in August
2. I binged on trigger foods at least once a week
3. I was drinking coffee and energy drinks daily
4. I stopped packing my lunch, measuring and planning in April
5. I ate in front of the TV, in the car, alone or with someone who thinks it's ok to eat cheese and bacon!

Ouch---truth is not only uncomfortable it can hurt.

    Thanks for your personal insight. I've just spent the last few weeks letting sloppy eating prevent further weight loss. And that sloppy eating can lead to two years of sloppier and sloppier eating for me. I've been there. Gained the 30lbs back plus some and don't want to go there again. It's taken me 7 years to get willing again to take action.

    Because it's easier to stay stopped then to stop.

    Without honest folks like yourself to admit the nature of losing focus we might all get amnesia and think sloppy eating won't harm us...

    And best wishes for 2013. I'm positive 13 is your lucky number!

    Yep, ain't it the truth. I've been there ad done that. We have the power within ourselves to turn things around this year. Lets break the curse and make 13 a lucky number.
