It's hard. I was there, I was doing it, I was slowly seeing progress, I started taking "reward" days off and before I knew I was back at square one. I've done some half-hearted attempts that lasted a few days or even a week but those obviously didn't take. So as I start the steps again I'm finding my biggest roadblock seems to be my thinking.
How do I rebuild my thoughts so that eating healthy and working out are positive reinforcements for the life I want to live. How do I recapture the motivation and momentum I had originally. At this point I have no idea other than staying away from the scale is my friend right now. The weather slowly changing is helping. I love walking outside feeling the wind and the sun, seeing the squirrels.
But overall I know I need a positive mentality boost. What does it for you? How do you find motivation to start and to keep going?
