Don't Postpone Success

Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts

Sunday, August 25, 2013



Today is day 3 of my re-start, and it feels good! I'm so glad I was honest with myself (and everyone else) last week and admitted that I was off track and gaining back some of the weight I've worked so hard to lose over the past 18 months. What a relief to come clean!

When I finally accepted that I was not doing my best anymore, I knew I had to give myself a fresh start. To be honest, I was going to wait until Monday to start over, or maybe even wait until September 1st. But then I thought..."If I wait until Monday or September, I might not start. And even if I do, why postpone my success until then?"



Truth is, you don't need a Monday or a new month to start. You can start right now! Even if you had a donut for breakfast and a Big Mac for lunch, who says you can't start over right this very minute? Why not show how determined you are to get on track by doing it NOW? You know what? You'll feel like such a hardcore warrior if you start fighting today, instead of putting it off until tomorrow!

    Congrats on being a featured blog. Enjoyed your images. I've just restarted a little over a week ago, and it helps to have the discipline to record accurately food and exercies

    So happy you ARE re starting! I worry about the comeback weight more than the take off weight. I am such an emotional eater and it is so easy to tip the scales in the wrong direction. I have been there more than I like to admit.

Thankfully, you didn't throw in the towel and leave it to fate.

Hope I can maintain forever, but know myself and the past experiences and expect that someday I may need to be honest and get serious about keeping it off.

Good Luck! You are so inspiring!

  I so needed to know there were others like me out there. I've gained because I chose to eat instead of planning.. So now I will plan and read for comfort instead of eating. Real people like you who can admit to having problems makes the journey easier.

    It was hard for me to admit the gain publically and move my ticker back to the left, but being honest does allow us to ask for help in this very arduous journey we are on.
I am glad you are back on the right path again!

    I've done pretty bad with the "food choices" part of my new journey...for the last 3 weeks, only lost weight the first week.... nothing the last 2 weeks... I KNOW it's due to my food choices, eating out too much, and night time "snacking"/"pigging out".... my activity n fitness have been amazing (for me), but boy oh boy have I failed in the eating dept....Today is my start over day for that - time to crack the whip! ;-) Good luck to your new start over :-)
