If At First You Don't Succeed....

...TRY TRY AGAIN!

I have been absent from Spark People for quite sometime and even more absent from my journey to weight loss and better health. While I have managed to maintain my weight within 10-15 pounds of where I was at when I was last here it isn't good enough. Too many days of sitting on my butt and eating crap I just don't need. Too many days of saying I will start tomorrow and too many empty promises to myself.

I think the biggest thing I am TRYING to realize is that failure is not eating that brownie or your having your favorite fast food for dinner. Failure isn't not exercising for days at a time. Failure is allowing those things to derail you and stop you from trying. This is one of my biggest struggles. So many times I eat a crappy lunch and go "oh well the day is ruined so I might as well eat crap for the rest of the day." It is a terrible mindset and one I am trying for hard to move past.

Every meal is a chance to start over, every time we have a free minute and chose to exercise instead of sitting on the couch is a chance to start over. Time to beat that concept into my brain and push forward. Onward and upward one minute at a time.

    Hey girlie! Glad to see you back! Your struggle with "oh well the day is ruined so I might as well eat crap for the rest of the day." had been my struggle too. I relieze that, that is a "DIET" mentality. What I CAN and CANNOT eat on my "DIET"
The truth is, I CAN have that "crap" but do I really want it? When I say to myself I CAN have "it" "it" somehow loses all the power it had on me. like you said, putting new concepts into our brain!

Glad you're here! emoticon Hugs, Rachel
