Boy, oh boy, here I am, saying it again: it's time to start over. Once again, I've let my bad habits creep back and negative thinking take over. I even found myself thinking things like, "I'm just one of those people who can't lose weight, so I may as well just do whatever I want." Yikes.
This getting healthy thing sure is a long, winding, bumpy road.
This has been my get-back-on-track week, and I have done well, so far. It's not so hard to start over, because I know what to do. I just need to do it. I joined the "Back on Track" team (for folks like me who want to do the #backontrack challenge, but aren't interested in the social media part). I usually get pretty motivated by challenges. My husband is wanting to lose weight now too, so hopefully we can support each other.
I feel pretty good about starting over. In the past, I have beat myself up a bit about slacking on my healthy habits, but I don't feel down on myself. I just feel like I made some bad choices, but it's not too late to start making better ones. That's growth, and I feel proud of myself for that.
