Train wreck or Being Derailed by One Stupid Thought

Saturday, July 06, 2013

Last September the scale stopped moving after loosing 18 pounds.
And I had a really stupid thought, "to hell with this, I am only maintaining."
So of course I showed em, (whoever em is) I stopped everything. Left sparkpeople and put all the weight back on. Not a plan I recommend.
Well, I am back and I am becoming a student of weight loss maintenance while loosing the weight. I figure I need to know how to maintain the weight loss as I go.
I confess my intellect said this was a life stye change but my heart was thinking diet.

    Starting over says your heart, intellect and desire are in the same space. Keep on going. You can do it.

    It is so hard to convince ourselves that this isn't a diet. I think we often spend so many years dieting that once we finally come here and get on the healthy bandwagon, it still takes a long time for our heads to understand. emoticon

    Starting over just gives us a chance to learn from our mistakes! Good luck on your journey. You are worth the effort that it takes to change!
