Am I in an overcrowded boat??!!!

Tuesday, August 27, 2013

....are a lot of people in my same boat? Has enthusiasm/motivation waned?
Has the summer taken its toll?
I'm happy about the 15 pounds I lost since I joined SP on February 22, 2013, but most of my progress was between then and the end of May. After vacation at the end of May I managed to undo the vacation damage (about 2 lbs.) and held my ground... tracked (half-heartedly), exercised (inconsistently)...
no real backsliding, but no real progress either!
Well, I guess I should give myself credit for at least maintaining with SP. In the past, vacation would be my undoing... a slippery slope. Not so this time, so it seems I HAVE learned from SP and changed some bad habits.
But I want to see progress again! I'm NOT going back to where I was before SP. I'm ready to seriously resume my journey at a steady, consistent pace... striving for those days that are perfect for me (with complete & accurate tracking, consistent exercise, etc.). I want to see progress on the move again. I'm not in a hurry. I just want to keep moving in the right direction.
So, if you've been in this same boat with me, let's jump overboard... let's dive back into SP with both feet and a firm commitment to continue on the journey to better health.

    I jump in and out of that boat all the time. Some times I feel very energetic and successful and at other times I feel low and not so committed.
The good thing is that I have not had a single moment that I felt like quitting the journey. I like to look for ways to make the changes in lifestyle easier.
MAGGIEMAGGIE5, you are not alone. emoticon
