Here I go again!

Wednesday, June 19, 2013

I'm three weeks into my restart and down 11 pounds. It feels good to be eating healthy and moving my body. It is a little discouraging to think that I already lost all this weight once already and now I need to do it all over again. I'm working at not getting overwhelmed with the prospect of losing 50 lbs, I'm taking it in 5 lb increments and that's making it a little less daunting.
I can't wait to get my confidence back. I miss feeling good and knowing that I look good.
I'm hoping to get back into sparking as the extra motivation and accountability.
Here I go again!!

    Congratulations on restarting and the weight loss so far! GREAT! I think taking it 5 lbs. at a time is a great idea, that way it won't seem so overwhelming!

    Keep it up!

    I've had to look at it in increments of 5-10lbs also!! Makes the task not seem so daunting! 11 pounds is phenomenal! Keep up the great work!

    It's great to be back on track! The key is never giving up. I agree, it is daunting thinking about 50 lbs all at once, so 5 at a time would be easier. Can't wait to hear how it's going!

    congrats on the restart, we only fail if we don't get back up again.
    I need to loose 80 pounds so I know how you feel, I think I will pick up your way of thinking and start thinking in 5 pounds at a time as well. emoticon emoticon
