I was going to blog about what has been holding me back, getting in my way, and setting me up for failure lately. But, I'm not going to do that. We ALL know that can happen. And, hopefully, we are all working toward undoing those things and making new and better decisions.
So, what I am going to say is that I am not giving up. I have had some obstacles lately. The latest one being sick again and spending an afternoon in the hospital to come home to bed rest for a couple of days. It seems like one thing after another and that has got me quite 'down' in the last few weeks. I was even thinking about quitting SP and coming back at a better time. Then common sense prevailed. We all know that a 'better time' may mean 'never'.
I have done some thinking about what I need in order to succeed. I am spending way too much time online. I have to limit that ~ but still come to SP every day and try to participate. I, also, have not been allowing myself 'treats' lately and, for me, that is just wrong. When I do that, I end up eating way more than I should in the evening. When I first started SP, and did lose weight on a constant basis, one of the best things I did for myself was to allow myself to eat 'almost' anything I wanted if I could still count it that day. Then, when my calories ran out ~ I stopped. So, I have got some of my favorite foods in the house now and plan to use them when I have to.
I'm looking for all the things that helped me before and I am NOT going to quit. That will get me exactly NOTHING. I am proud of my weight loss so far and will get back on track!!
I'm on my way to the pool for some exercise. Have a great day everyone!
