About a week ago, I wrote a blog about having hit the 40 pounds lost mark. How exciting, right? Well this week I have to write about re-committing to the program. On weigh in day
I found that I had gained a pound.
I felt just awful when I looked down and saw that extra pound. All that hard work undone by one week of carelessness and not sticking to the program. It started out being just a day - giving myself a one day break. It turned into almost a whole week of slacking off. I blew two challenges and have to start them both over from the top.
No more slacking, I said. Time to recommit and be consistent, I said. So what do I do first day? Well, I did track everything, even if I did make some poor food choices at my daughters Super Bowl party and missed all my nutrition goals. I got in all my water and then some. I did NOT exercise, not one bit. Some re-commitment, huh?
Even as I write this, I question how committed I really am. Where is my motivation? I think sometime you just have to make something happen despite not having the drive, the motivation. So, I am just going to have to do it. Do it until I believe it.
