Try to keep going

Friday, May 24, 2013

Blah, blah, blah...
I was trying to do something and failed. Details? Why bother. It's always the same. I made a choice that was bad and it led me down the wrong path. So, I hit myself on the forehead (could of had a V8) and start again -and again. It seems failure is so much easier to maintain.
But, for today, I don't have another option but to pick myself u, dust myself off, start again.
I have written this blog daily for three days and deleted it because I feel like a big ole whiner but I'm gonna see if hitting that post button gets it out of my system.

    You know what? I wish I would have gotten the long version. Don't feel like a whiner at all. You know why? When I read stuff like this, I don't feel so alone! I've also been frustrated...feeling the same way as you do. Everyone tells me I didn't gain the weight overnight. True, but it didn't take me months to gain the weight either. It doesn't take a year before the scale goes up 5 lbs. I can very easily gain 5 or 10 lbs a month! However, losing any weight in a month is like Mission Impossible. The next person to tell me they lost 20 lbs by just cutting soda out of their diet might get seriously hurt! LOL

I gave up soda like years ago. For the most part, I drink water! A glass of milk with a meal or two. Sometimes a glass of low calorie juice. Seriously?! I'm waking up with a sore body, trying to eat healthier one step at a time and I don't see any changes really. I keep comforting myself and telling myself that I'm changing from the inside out. It can get very discouraging and we need to give ourselves permission to do that.

I got some great advice when I was having the same hissy fit and went on a 8 cookie binge along with 4 Hershey kisses that were so not worth it. LOL A good emoticon told me I need to change my reward system and spend this weekend celebrating me and all that I've accomplished so far. I challenge you to do the same. Come celebrate with me! Let's celebrate that even though this road has been long and tough that we keep at it. We don't give up! Then lets write new goals and reward system. Screw the scale! When we streak in a healthy habit for so many weeks, then we get some type of reward. I'm thinking a soak in the tub or some spa treatment if I keep it up for a long time. Are you with me? Let's change this story. It's our journey and we need to kick that lying scale and make a new path so we can feel good about what we are doing. Never be ashamed to vent. I made that mistake and then I would just disappear on my bad days. Now I'm authentic and I find when I share the bad days I get a lot of good advice and that helps me!

    Thankful that you did hit the post button. There are many of us who can relate to just what you are writing about. We've been there and done it. I certainly have and know I will be there again.
We can't let the mistakes take us down. I have come to grips with the fact that I will make poor choices, I will make mistakes but I can't let them halt me. Like you I just have to pick up the pieces and march on. That we can do.

    I'm also glad you posted so that we can encourage you. I promise you . . . you are NOT alone in this. There are days we all don't just fall off the wagon, we jump off intentionally. It happens & it's ok. We are still learning to live our new lifestyle & we're going to mess up royally along the way until we get it right.

As you said, pick yourself up, dust yourself off, & get back on track.
