I don't think it was one thing alone, but likely a combination of things, but this week, I've felt more like myself in a very long time. It's the first week in I don't know how long, that I've been staying within my calorie range CONSISTENTLY, and getting my fitness focus back up to where I like to keep it. I've felt my determination coming back slowly to keep those late afternoon snack attacks under control (ok, let's call them what they are, "gorging!") I've been incorporating mindful eating again too. I've been reading many Spark blogs in search of inspiration lately, and have had a lot of conversations with myself as well about why I've been falling off the wagon. That, with the fact that I've gained a few lbs! I think it is all a blessing in disguise! I'm starting to believe in myself again, and reminding myself that my food addiction takes work every day to keep under control. I'm thankful that these things are in the front of my mind again. I know that time and consistency will bring that scale back down, and I'm starting to enjoy that ride again!
