Getting back on track

Sunday, March 10, 2013

I started my journey to weigh loss and healthy living January 2011 and reached my goal weight in March 2012 (losing over 40 lbs). Over the last last year it went up and down several times but I never got back to the goal. Each time I gained weight it was harder and more frustrating to get back to the healthy habits. Finally I lost control and have to face the music. I gained 15 lbs and feel miserable, physically and emotionally. Enough is enough and I just started to get back to the healthy habits.

Week one:
I have been drastically cutting down on processed foods and sugar. I'm sugar sensitive and have withdrawal symptoms (headaches, strong cravings) the last 3 days. This should be getting better with time. I made time for some short bursts of exercise to get started again. Day 6: Still on track and feeling a bit better. I'm taking one step at the time and know that I have to be persistent and forgive myself for my weakness.

    I am proud of you for taking positive steps to your weight loss. I understand that at first it is difficult to get started. I felt the same way. I kept losing and gaining the same 10-20lbs over and over again and it was so frustrating. I decided to recommit to my weight loss journey December 2012 and joined sparkpeople after doing weight watchers. Weight watchers was not working for me, but sparkpeople works. I love the support that I get and tracking my food helps a lot! If you ever need a friend I'm here and I know you can do this. Little steps at a time and then victory in the end! I have faith in you!
