Thinking Positive

Monday, July 29, 2013

It's really hard to stay motivated. Last summer I lost 16 pounds. I was so proud of myself, especially when I kept the weight off through the holidays. But then I slowly started gaining weight again. I've gained back 10/16 pounds. I worked so hard to lose that weight and I just gained it right back.

But, it's time to think positive. Because first of all I didn't gain ALL the weight back. I'm NOT back to my highest weight.

AND

I don't drink soda as often. I still drink soda every once in a while and there are still days when I drink way too much, but there are also days when I only drink one and that one is preceded and followed by water. The other day I drank a soda and decided I wanted a second. I only made it halfway through the second one before it just tasted way too sweet.

I exercise more often. I might not exercise every day and sometimes it is only a couple times a month, but it's still a lot more frequent than I was exercising.

I eat more fruit and veggies.

I'm more conscious of serving sizes (even though I sometimes still choose to overeat).

I have made progress. Sometimes it's hard to remember that. But I have to give myself credit for the positive changes I have made.

Welcome back, you haven't been around for a very long time. It's nice to hear from you again. I agree with SULLYL28, day by day, one step at a time, set some small goals for yourself. You have kept to many of the improvements that you had made the last time, that is a great start.
