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.
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.
