Just One Good Day Makes Such a Difference

Saturday, May 25, 2013

After one good eating day, I feel strong and in control again! Let me repeat that: after just one good eating day, I feel strong (in regard to food) and in control again. AMAZING!! Good, good feeling.

The scale shows I'm 3 pounds heavier than 5 weeks ago. Okay. I can live with that or I can choose to change that. Not deciding this minute. Either way works. Right now I just want to eat very, very healthy. I've adjusted my fitness tracker to reflect what I can realistically expect to accomplish now given current limitations. Calorie range is 1400-1750. I can do it!

Thanks, SparkFriends, for all your support. Maintenance is not easy for me, but my SparkFriends make it possible. Thanks again.

    Thank you so much for the recent blogs you've posted. I fell off the exercise wagon over the past month due to my recent job change, and it was helpful to hear that you had sort of experienced some setbacks recently also due to your injury. Time to just get back on track with nutrition and a recommitment to regular exercise, which I started again today. I'm so thankful for inspiring people like yourself who keep it REAL! emoticon
Thanks for sharing!

    I love that succinct thought! You are right, one day of being "good" makes a huge difference in my sense of control - I need to remember that!

    Yes, maintenance is definitely challenging! Every bit as challenging as losing in the first place, I am discovering.

    Thanks for showing the way to tweak intake when circumstances change. Yay for you - feeling in control after one good day! That's the way it should be when we don't let the gains get away from us.

    I don't maintenance is easy for anyone. I struggle from time to time but if you stay on top of things, it won't get out of hand. Have a great weekend! HUGS!

    I started over yesterday after a significant weight gain during the past year. I did really well yesterday, and the scale dropped and like you I feel so much stronger. Keep up the good work. emoticon

Nutrition is so important when recovering from injuries both to heal quickly and to keep the weight from creeping back up. Nothing beats absolutely rigid tracking of every little thing you eat, and I mean weighing and measuring everything accurately. As someone very experienced with this, it really does work, and I too thanks Sparkpeople for the wonderful tools to allow me to do this and the great friends who have my back!

    As you say, one good day gives confidence to live the NEXT good day. No promises, just the best decision one can make at the time. And tracking *does* make a difference. emoticon

    You'd think maintaining would be a piece of cake, after the hard work it takes to lose weight....but nope. It's just as challenging, if not more so! No slacking off, no indulging in junk foods...bummer!

Thanks for you awesome, motivating, inspirational blog posting! We all need to remember to keep trying EVERY SINGLE DAY! Woo hoo--YAY YOU!
